  • "We had a lovely stay at the cosy peacock, surrounded by beautiful countryside, with a lovely outside seating area to have a glass of wine & enjoy the views."

    It is a very peaceful location, but within easy reach from Ambleside & other places around Windermere. There is two lovely country pubs within walking distance, serving good food from both, although we preferred the Mortal Man for the outside seating with stunning views. The cottage itself was very comfortable, especially the beds. The kitchen was well equipped & had everything we needed & the bathrooms had excellent showers. Although the cottage was snug, we had plenty of room for 4 adults & 2 dogs. All in all we had a wonderful week at the lovely cosy peacock & would highly recommend.

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.
