Map

Travel:

The nearest major Airport would be Blackpool or Manchester, roughly one to two hours away. Car hire would be recommended, although there is a pretty reasonable local bus service running through the Lake District.

Distances:

Ambleside is about two miles away, and for a supermarket, Windermere is roughly the same distance in the opposite direction down the lake.

Wow! Quirky cottage, perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage - perfect location - great walks on the doorstep - stunning views.

The cottage lived up to our expectations, modern kitchen facilities complimented the quirky period features, we loved it. Townfoot was clean and beautifully maintained, inside and out, Alun couldn't have been more helpful, answered emails promptly.

A superb family holiday.

Quintessential Period Lake District Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this charming cottage for 1 week. We found the location to be ideally placed for us to access the activities we had planned by car, ie Scafell Pike, Grizdale Forest, Penrith, Ullswater, Bowness, Ambleside and Windemere. We found the facilities provided by the cottage to suit our needs. Our break benefitted from outstanding weather and the views from the garden were devine and added to the peaceful atmosphere in this stunning location.

a home from home

  • 4 of 5

A peaceful location but only a quick drive to shops and restaurants. We ate outside most nights as the garden is wonderful with great views over the valley. And lots of space to enjoy a day indoors when it rained.

Stunning old quirky house

  • 5 of 5

Townfoot farmhouse was huge and contained everything you could possibly need. Furnished to a fantastic standard, with top of the range facilities. The garden though, wow wow wow!! I could have sat there all day, watching the wild birds feeding and enjoying the view. It was magnificent. My family and I had a superb week! Watch your head on the low beams between the kitchen and lounge, each of us nearly knocked ourselves out on separate occasions!! We tried the Mortal Man pub nearby but weren't that impressed. For excellent pub food try the Brookside pub in Windermere, it was lovely. And also the little post office/cafe in Troutbeck, friendly staff and gorgeous cake and coffee. Would love to return!

Character Property

  • 5 of 5

A character property with beautiful terraced gardens, set in a peaceful countryside location. Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside are just a few minutes drive away. Being able to pop back for a relaxing lunch on the terrace everyday, completed a lovely holiday at Troutbeck Farmhouse.
