    Lovely cosy cottage away from the madding crowd. Great shower,big telly, nice and warm all done to an excellent standard. The views from the window are incredible and all build into the ambience of the cottage. Looking forward to a return visit ASAP. Kevin & Cathy

  • "This property is all about the location - the cottage is great but would be a struggle for 4 adults for more than a couple of days as there is limited space downstairs."

    It’s very well equipped and the garden is great. Some milk in the fridge would have been appreciated as we arrived late on a Saturday evening, also there was no kitchen towel and no spare loo roll which I found unbelievable - we have never stayed at a rental property where this wasn’t available and the last thing we want to do on holiday is go shopping for loo roll!

    Thank you for your comments. We take all comments on board. As the property is self catering, milk is not always provided. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "This is not unique to Thyme Out, cottage isn't warm enough!"

    The radiators are on minimum settings and hours. As with many stays in The Lakes (at least once/twice a year) we experienced sun, rain, hail and snow and there should be the option to make a place warmer. I also could not have a bath as the shower water temperature was not warm enough. Shame. However, Troutbeck is a fabulous area and no doubt I’ll be back in one the Cottages soon .

    Thank you for your comments. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Concerning heating, the radiators can be adjusted by touching the + or - buttons on the front of each radiator, our instruction folder gives you instructions about this. If they are off during their set program they can also be turned on by pressing the centre button. Further to your comment about hot water for a bath we have increased the temperature in the hot water tank which should then provide more hot water. We take all comments on board. We do hope you will visit our cottage again, Lakelovers are always on hand to assist if required. Kind regards The Owners Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay at lovely cottage."

    Only two of us so very comfortable. Couple of small maintenance issues with a blind and overhead cooker extractor. Did not trouble us too much so reported on day of departure. Assume now all put right . Views and local walks outstanding. Two great foodie pubs and charming cafe within easy walking distance. Will hopefully be returning soon. Such a relaxing and tranquil cottage and surroundings.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and the views! We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Generally speaking we found the cottage and garden to be comfortable and a home from home."

    However there were some things that could have been better. I agree with comments left in the guest book that the sofa is not particularly comfortable. There was the usual issue of not enough cutlery when there is a dishwasher, numerous spoons including soup spoons but only 4 forks! The shower hose in the main bathroom has so many leaks that it was not useable. Both the extractor fans in the bathroom and kitchen need a good clean. Saucepans that hadn’t been washed properly had been put back in the cupboard. We throughly enjoyed our week at Thyme out but just feel that a bit more care and attention is required as mentioned above. However we would certainly return.

    Dear Sean Thank you for your feedback. We have replaced the whole of the cutlery and have no idea why there was a shortage of forks. The shower bath hose has been replaced. The main shower is a fixed overhead shower head which has been checked and is in full working order. The extractor fans have been attended to and our cleaner informed of the sauce pans that had been left in an unsatisfactory manner. We do hope you return as many of our clients do. Kind regards The owners Property Owner

  • "Excellent cottage."

    Ground floor bedroom en-suite shower pressure needs adjusting to avoid scalding on the high setting. (Low pressure light comes on.) Could do with at least one large saucepan.

    Dear Charles Thank you for you feedback. The downstairs shower was found to be faulty and has been repaired. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this caused. We have also now added a large saucepan as you suggested. Thank you also for describing our cottage as excellent it does have one of the best views of the valley than most other properties.

    Having said that we have noticed that the damp smell from the lower bedroom/ bathroom has progressively become more noticeable, to a level this time that we actively shut the bedroom door to avoid it. Also it could do with a good clean, some cobwebs and flaky paint etc, other than that we love the cottage.

    Dear Darren Thank you for your feedback. Your comments about the lower bedroom have been attended to and our cleaner informed about cobwebs. Kind regards The owners Property Owner

    The shower in the downstairs bathroom though could do with a thorough clean and providing hand soap would have been helpful. The cottage next door had a different change over day (lakelovers too) and we noted the cleaner/s were there just under an hour, so much for enhanced Covid cleaning!

  • "The cottage is absolutely lovely in a wonderful location overlooking the Troutbeck valley."

    It's very tastefully furnished and has got everything you are likely to need. A couple of very minor points: despite being a mechanical engineer I could get the cooker hood to work and the bluetooth speaker was nowhere to be found. But these are just minor and didn't detract from the stay. Good selection of OS maps and notes on local walks. Overall excellent.

  • "Building works on neighbouring property approximately 7 metres away ."

    Couldn’t use the garden and had to keep all windows and doors closed to try to block out the noise of the stil saw,chiselling etc .Booked THYME OUT as advertised as a tranquil peaceful place to spend a weeks holiday!Paid £1000 to spend a week on a building site! Disgraceful customer service ,we should have been warned beforehand and we would have cancelled,We were never given the chance!!!!!!!! Irony being we actually asked the question are there any building works still in progress prior to paying our final balance!!!!!!

    Due to miscommunication the guest was not advised prior to arrival that the work on the neighbouring property had over run. The owner had taken steps to make us aware of this and it is regrettable that we did not pass this on. This matter has been resolved directly with the Guest. Property Owner

The property

Take a spell of Thyme Out in tranquil Troutbeck!

One of the finest settings in the Lake District surrounds this stunning Lakeland cottage, slate-built and with the most glorious garden to take advantage of those incredible and uninterrupted fell views.

A paradise of peace in a magical place! Impeccably presented, Thyme Out is a designer treat, perfectly put together for our Lakelovers and themed with a restful décor that complements the green and peaceful landscape in Troutbeck.

The epitome of a chic, modern country cottage, the authentic old-world charm of this rural retreat has been lovingly preserved while ensuring that contemporary quality has been implemented to exacting standards. Outside, the garden is a true delight, leaning lazily against the slopes of this beautiful valley, planted with gorgeous shrubs, and benefitting from a lovely level grassed area and superb sun-trap patio.

From here, the views across the valley to the rugged hilltops are simply breath-taking, and many happy hours can be spent out here just taking it all in. If you want to eat out or spend a lazy afternoon in a fabulous beer garden, the Mortal Man Inn is pleasingly close by, and the Queen's Head is too, another fantastic authentic Lakeland pub serving tasty fare.

Below you in the valley, Troutbeck Tongue is a small fell that makes for great walking, with panoramic views of the higher summits from its top, and you can also choose to walk over the hillsides to Ambleside or over the rough Garburn Pass to remote Kentmere.

There are a host of lower level walks, and with Bowness and Ambleside in easy striking distance, there is always something new to discover.

Don't miss a leisurely day on the Lake Windermere Steamers! Troutbeck is a real rural community, seemingly surviving from a bygone era, and Thyme Out is a terrific space in which to slow down and stop the clocks for a while!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


  • Windermere 3 miles
  • Ambleside 4 miles

The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
