    • “The situation was great for us as we love the countryside. Everything we needed was in the apartment and we had plenty of space, the view from the lounge bay window was brilliant!”

    • “Roomy flat with beautiful views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a very roomy flat with lovely views over Lake Windermere and the countryside.However because of its peaceful location ,it is high up a hill with a single precipitous track as you have to plan your shopping carefully as there is no popping to the shops!. The flat is no frills but very clean and comfortable.The owner was helpful and turned the excellent heating on as we has a cold spell. The only drawback was the lack of a washing machine as the walking was rather muddy and wet. There is a lot of parking space.”

    • “A great little find. Peace and quite abounds. Warm, comfortable, perfect. Walks to both Troutbeck and ambleside straight from the door, plus the added bonus of lambing time. Will be back.”

    • “Ideal central position for exploring with great views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A lovely well proportioned apartment with stunning views over Lake Windermere. A little of the beaten track, ideal for walking and relaxing in peace and quiet. The apartment contains all the essentials required for family living, clean and comfortable but a little dated. Not that this spoilt what was a fantastic family holiday and we would certainly book it again.”

    • “The accommodation was brilliant, we really enjoyed our stay here and the views are amazing!”

    Mr Cowen, October 2018

    • “I took my Partner and Mother with me, my partner had never been to the Lakes before and my mother needed a holiday. The views as we made our way to Skelghyll took her breath away and when we reached Low Skelghyll, she was speech bound. The views from the house are amazing. The house itself was all that I expected, roomy, clean and truly home from home. Some people may find the lane a bit daunting but let me assure you, it is worth the drive. If you want a quiet holiday in easy reach of the attractions the Lakes has to offer, then Skelghyll is your place. I cannot praise the house and location enough. You have to go yourself and see.”

    Mr Hunt, Portsmouth, September 2018

    • “We had a great week despite the rain showers. Low Skelgill was in a really great location despite the narrow access lane(part of the fun) it was very clean and comfortable with a very spacious sitting room with amazing views. The owner was very helpful. We would certainly use it again.”

    Ms Haigh, Keighley, August 2018

    • “We love this place, the location is sublime and although the accommodation is basic, that is part of the charm.”

    Mrs Train, Brighton, June 2018

    • “We saw the views over Lake Windermere on the photos but they don't do it justice. Low Skelgill is set in a tranquil location but well connected by public footpaths and bridleways for walking. The access road to the property was long and narrow, and only once did we meet someone coming the other way (a local farmer who reversed out of our way and was very helpful) The property was clean and well equipped and we were happy there for a week. Staying in a working setting (surrounded by sheep and the odd chicken) left us feeling privileged to see the Lakes from another perspective. We hope to return again in the future”

    Mr Butler, Nottingham, June 2018

    • “We were very surprised that towels were not provided (and hand soap). We book a lot of holiday cottages and therefore assume that towels are provided as standard. Also we did not have the wifi password. But great location and amazing views.”

Regional Information

TROUTBECK Windermere 3 miles; Ambleside 4 miles. The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
