With the Ullswater Valley nearby, this compact, pretty cottage is ideal for fell walkers, cyclists and nature-lovers alike.

In a beautiful location this attractive self catering holiday cottage (sleeping four guests) in Troutbeck is one of two holiday cottages that have been converted from former stables. They retain original features including beams and are located across a courtyard of a local inn. The owners of the Inn and the cottage provide a warm welcome and serve delicious food in the inn should you wish a change from self catering after a day out exploring the lakes, fell walking or cycling.

The property is perfect for holidays or short breaks all year round, lying equidistance from Penrith and Keswick and within easy reach of Ullswater, ideal for sailing, boat hire and steamer trips. Helvellyn, the third highest peak in both the Lake District and England is a short drive away at Glenridding. Blencathra, the most northerly of the Lake District peaks, is also a short drive and can be seen from the cottage. Troutbeck is on the main Keswick to Penrith bus route and buses frequently pass through the village should you want to leave the car behind.

This property can be booked along with the adjacent cottage. Taken together, these two cottages can accommodate eight people in total.

The ground floor bedrooms consist of one double and a twin bedroom. The bathroom has shower, WC and wash basin.

The living area on the first floor has a well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave, toaster, iron and ironing board (please note there is no freezer at the property). The sitting/dining room has a beamed ceiling, TV, DVD and views of Blencathra.

A lovely property in the perfect location. Being keen cyclists there were numerous rides(and walks) we could do from the doorstep. Cottage had everything but maybe because of being cyclists a washing machine would have been handy but not the end of the world as there was a laundrette in Keswick. Food in the pub was lovely as were the staff.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
