The Cottage

Troutbeck Cottage is located in a small community of Lakeland cottages, away from the hustle and bustle of Ambleside and Windermere.  The cottage offers a comfortable and homely base from which to explore the surrounding area.

The lounge has a traditional Lakeland slate fire surround with inset solid fuel stove.  Coal is provided and logs can be purchased from the local garage.  The lounge is furnished with a traditional leather suite and modern, quality light oak furniture.  We provide free Wi-Fi internet access,  a widescreen 32″ LCD TV, and a DVD/CD player.  There are also plenty of books, maps and general information covering the Lake District.

Also on the ground floor is a fitted dining kitchen which is well equipped with an electric hob and oven, microwave and fridge and has a solid wood dining table and high back leather dining chairs.  A small freezer is located in the walk-in cupboard.  There is currently no washing machine, but we plan to install one over the winter season.

Upstairs, the main double bedroom at the front of the cottage has views towards Claife Heights in the distance.  The bedroom is fitted with quality pine bedroom furniture and has an en-suite shower room.  This bedroom has a bright and airy feel to it which is complemented by the exposed beam and furnishings.

The second bedroom has a single bed and also has an en-suite shower room.

Outside there is a small seating area to the front of the cottage which faces south and is a real sun trap.  At the rear, there is a shared open courtyard leading to the open fields and hills beyond.  Within the rear courtyard, Troutbeck Cottage has its own allocated parking space for one vehicle.

The cottage offers a homely and comfortable retreat throughout the year.  In addition to the attraction of a solid fuel fire, the cottage is heated throughout with electric storage heaters.
