  • "The cottage itself was lovely with fantastic valley views, but there is an issue with parking at the cottage if your group has more than one car."

    There is only one identified parking space at the side of the property, although the owners believe that you can park two additional cars in the narrow country lane at the front of the property. When we tried that an angry farmer ( farmers use the lane at the front of the property 24/7 365 days a year) stopped and told us in no uncertain terms to move. Alternative Parking in the tiny hamlet of Troutbeck is otherwise very difficult, due to the narrow country lanes, and only possible at some distance from the cottage.

    We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Rose Cottage and apologise for the farmer's response and the inconvenience caused by the parking situation during your stay. We hope the photos give future guests a clear understanding that the additional parking outside the cottage is feasible, whilst leaving sufficient space for the farmer to access the lane.

  • "The only thing I would change is the mattress on the Kingsize bed which was very firm causing aches and disturbed sleep."

    I obviously drew the short straw as the other two beds were fine.

  • "We’ve had a lovely time and will miss the cottage, I practically had to be dragged outside!"

    I was so pleased to have experience of cooking on an aga a bit if a bucket list with me; quiet and much needed rest. Netflix sub was a nice touch and the logs and stove made it sooo cosy!!! We posted on our insta stories but alas didn’t tag you

    We’re delighted that you had a restful Christmas at the cottage. Cooking with the AGA is surprisingly easy and helps add to the cosy winter feel. Please do tell all your friends on Instagram! Sorry we don’t have a page yet. Property Owner

    A big Thankyou to the owners for their thoughtfulness in providing a Welcome Pack and such a lovely surprise to see the Christmas tree .

    We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and the extra little touches we try to provide for our guests. Spending Christmas with family by the log fire is wonderful. We hope to welcome you back next year! Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location, a few more smaller saucepans and wooden spoons is needed."

    Heating was set a little too high for my liking. 100% I will be booking this property again.

  • "This is a stunning house in the most beautiful location."

    It’s equipped to the highest standard with everything you could possibly need. We only have one small but important criticism - the loo brushes were dirty with faeces from previous holidaymakers!! Not the nicest experience! We intend no criticism to the owners but hope, rather, that this serves as constructive feedback for the cleaners. Apart from that, we had the most wonderful stay and really hope to return.

    We're pleased that you really enjoyed your stay, and look forward to welcoming you back next year. Your feedback has been passed on to the cleaners and the toilet brushes replaced, please accept our apologies for this experience. Property Owner

  • "Rose Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Troutbeck, with amazing walks literally on your doorstep."

    From its location overlooking the Troutbeck valley, even the grey skies and drizzly weather of our week at the end of July 2023 (the summer that wasn’t) couldn’t detract from the beauty of the outlook from the windows and garden of this delightful home. Inside are three lovely double bedrooms and three bathrooms, perfect for gatherings of friends or family. The well-equipped kitchen, with an AGA stove and conventional oven, is ideal if you enjoy dining at home. Homely, comfortable and spacious in a stunning setting, we were sad to leave both the cottage and the village, and would love to return one day.

    Thank you for such lovely feedback, we're so pleased your family enjoyed their time in Troutbeck and we hope to see you again soon. We never tire of the views over the valley and the endless walks from the door. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay at Rose Cottage with our children and one year old grandchild."

    Although the weather frustrated some of the things we had hoped to do we still managed to get out and Rose Cottage was a perfect place return to, being spacious enough for people to spread out and comfortable in each space. We were also very impressed with how beautifully this very old house has been adapted and changed without losing character.

    We're glad you had a lovely time in the Lakes, and thank you for your kind comments. Rose Cottage was built in 1732 (did you find the date stone on the corner of the house?) and we love the beautiful flag stones in the kitchen and the timber ceilings downstairs. The downstairs bedroom is where the cows used to sleep many years ago! We look forward to inviting you back to Rose Cottage again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week at Rose Cottage."

    A beautiful peaceful location and a really comfortable and tastefully renovated cottage. We enjoyed some great walks, many straight from the cottage door - really nice to be able to leave the car behind for a change. We also sampled the delights of the Queen's Head - excellent food and very friendly service. All in all, couldn't have been better.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Troutbeck offers some of the best walking in the Lakes right from the door. Glad to hear you enjoyed the Queen's Head, two pubs in the village is a real treat, the log fire in the Mortal Man makes for cosy evenings in the winter. Property Owner

  • "From the minute we arrived to the moment we left- Rose Cottage has been our beautiful holiday home for the week."

    Rose Cottage is beautifully decorated in every room - the kitchen is such a great place to socialise over meals & the lounge is relaxing with fantastic art work. The garden area is colourful and welcoming with beautiful flowers and a view which changes at every glance !- sit on the bench and say hello to walkers ,& runners passing by !- each bedroom is immaculate and the beds are so comfy so provide a great night's sleep after a long day of walking and sight seeing. 3 bathrooms to chose from - again tasteful & inviting for a soak at the end of the day. The village is friendly and the location is first class. Just the best weeks holiday my family & I have had in a long time - we plan to return later in the year - highly recommended.

    Thank you for your comments, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

The property

Resting in the historic Cumbrian village of Troutbeck, within a Lake District conservation area, lies this exquisite, three-bedroom holiday home, Rose Cottage At Troutbeck.

Built in 1732, this excellent, stone-clad cottage boasts character, original features, stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and a wealth of tastefully-presented living areas, making it a superb choice for families or sharing friends who want a peaceful, self-catered stay at the heart of the Lake District National Park.

After parking up and unpacking, make yourself at home in your fabulous new home by utilising the lovely kitchen, complete with an AGA cooker, to rustle up delicious, home-cooked meals for the whole group.

Savour your meals at the dining table before retreating to the sitting room to watch a film on the elegant Smart TV whilst you're kept warm by the flickering flames of a stylish, woodburning stove.

As day rolls into night, indulge in a long, hot bath before retiring to one of three, plush bedrooms, each an idyllic sanctuary waiting to transport you to a night of tranquil slumber.

In the morning, enjoy a cup of coffee out in the garden before exploring everything your surroundings have to offer.

Take a stroll to the nearby Townend National Trust site or embark on a hike along the Wansfell Pike trail, which can lead you towards Ambleside; why not bring your bikes to explore the trails and iconic roads from the door, with the benefit of secure storage in the outside stone shed.

When you've built up an appetite, stop for some traditional pub fare at the Mortal Man Hotel or the Queen's Head, Troutbeck, both spots just a brief walk from your lodgings.

In Ambleside, pay a visit to the serene Stagshaw Gardens, the historic Ambleside Roman Fort, and the breath-taking natural location of Stock Ghyll Force waterfall.

All of this can be enjoyed during a stay at Rose Cottage At Troutbeck.

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.
