In response to UK Government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have had to close Troutbeck Cottage for the time being.  We cannot say how long this closure will last but are assuming that travel restrictions are unlikely to be lifted before the end of June.   We are not accepting future bookings at the present time.

We are very sorry that we are having to take this action but we fully support the Government’s policy and that of the other authorities, including Public Health England, Visit England and the Lake District National Park Authority.

Troutbeck Cottage is a traditional stone-built Lakeland cottage built in the mid-19th century.  It is located at Troutbeck Bridge, in the heart of the Lake District close to Windermere on the main road to Ambleside and Grasmere.

The cottage has been extensively refurbished and provides comfortable and homely self-catering accommodation for up to three guests.  Troutbeck Cottage is ideal for couples and small families looking for a relaxing break and offers the perfect base from which to explore this outstanding part of England.

Troutbeck Cottage is particularly suitable for those travelling to the Lake District without a car.  The cottage is a short bus or taxi ride away from Windermere Station where there are regular trains from Oxenholme, connecting with the main routes between London and Glasgow/Edinburgh.  There is a bus stop at the end of Brook Street with regular services to Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere, Keswick and Kendal.

The cottage features a wood-burning stove in the lounge and has two bedrooms – each with en-suite shower facilities.  We also provide free fibre Wi-Fi internet access.  For more information, please check The Cottage and the Things to Do pages. If you are considering making a booking, please check Availability, and submit an online booking request.  We can also be contacted by e-mail using the Contact Us page.

Please note that we have a no-smoking policy.  We will consider well-behaved pets on request (sorry, no cats).

Feedback since our reopening in October 2018 includes the following:

“Troutbeck Cottage exceeded our expectations in every way.  Cosy, yet luxurious, with special touches everywhere you looked.  It was the perfect spot from which to explore The Lake District.  Highly, highly recommended!!”

“Everything at Troutbeck Cottage was luxurious.  Everything you could need is there and the amenities are first class.  Decor and finishing are beautiful and it’s in a brilliant location.  We loved it and would definitely like to stay again.  Beautiful cottage in the beautiful lakes, perfect. “
