Holidays in Troutbeck

Tranquil and off-the-beaten track, this Lake District village enjoys a beautiful rural location

The village of Troutbeck

Set within the conservation area that includes the National Trust’s Townend, the village of Troutbeck is just a few miles north of Lake Windermere and close to the town of Ambleside.

Troutbeck is a great village to make your base to explore the central Lake District from. Perhaps the National Park’s best known lake is also the largest in England and many of the area’s best tourist attractions are close by.

Lake Windermere

Dominated by traditional grey slate and stone buildings, nearby Ambleside has a selection of pubs, cafes and shops where outdoor enthusiasts come to prepare for their next adventure. If you like water sports head for Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre, where you can try your hand at kayaking, fishing, sailing and more. The centre even offers wakeboarding lessons for beginners!

Jesus Church is an interesting feature of Troutbeck. This mysterious church is not named after a saint and its origins have been lost. Estimated to have been built around 1500, then rebuilt with much of the same components in the 18th century. Visitors are attracted to its unusual Pre-Raphaelite stained glass window, which was designed by Edward Burne-Jones.

“Troutbeck is within reasonable distance of Windermere and Ambleside…”

Stop at the Mortal Man Inn for some refreshment after exploring the numerous paths and trails that wind around some of the Lake District's picture-postcard scenery, both of which are within easy reach of any of our Troutbeck holiday cottages. Also find out more about famous Lake District residents from the past like Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. There are tributes to their life’s works throughout the region.

We have some lovely cottages in and around Troutbeck. Why not visit our collection to feel inspired?
