Self-catering holiday accommodation in Troutbeck
Troutbeck is a small narrow village on the back road from Windermere to Ullswater and Glenridding. Once the home to Beatrix Potter, where she bred Herdwick sheep, it’s a quiet place to take a holiday in the Lake District. The road is quiet and offers a peaceful break away from the bustle of other local towns nearby. Make sure you pay a visit to Townend, a rustic Lakeland farmhouse now cared for by the National Trust – a real insight into rural Lake District life centuries ago.
For days out close by, you can explore Bowness-on-Windermere, Hawkshead, Windermere and Pooley Bridge, all with plenty of activities, from museums and stately homes to water sports and boat trips.
