    • “Stayed here in July for the second time. Another great Holiday at this superb Cottage. Contains everything you might need for a Family Holiday, very comfortable and has a great enclosed Garden for young Children. Centrally located and easy to get to all the Lakes popular attractions. We will no doubt be back again in the future.”

    • “Spent a week in this cottage and what a week. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped. The garden is large and and secluded. It's mainly enclosed but the gate would allow little dogs to escape. There's a fire pit a bbq, great features and wonderfully landscaped. The kitchen is spacious, bright and has everything you could possibly need. A downstairs utility room and shower is so handy especially if like us you have kids and dogs. There are two living rooms. One is carpeted the other has a hard flooring and a log burner, very practical and characterful. There are TVs in all the living areas. The bedrooms have nearly everything you need and all the showers are great. The only thing missing was a full length mirror. This must be the best rental cottage I have stayed in. It is a real quality place. It is also in a great location and easily accessible for just about everything. I would definitely stay stay in this property again.”

    • “On our last night at this truest amazing cottage which is straight out of Beatrix Potter, but with a modern luxury feel . This truly beautiful place is ideal for everyone families,young professionals and mature couples. Ideally positioned with orchard views and all amenities to hand within a 10 minute walk. The cottage is just exquisite did not want to leave very lucky owners who if ever need house keepers and gardeners please just ask. The bedrooms and fittings are top quality and the open plan large kitchen is a wonderful haven for sharing a well deserved meal/BBQ with friends which looks out onto a safe and well planned large country garden,finishing the warm evenings off sat around the top end of the garden drinking a glass of Merlot whilst feeling the glowing earth from the fire pit.In the colder evening you can sit in one of the two lounges one with traditional stone floor and log burner . A real hidden gem in the beautiful hopefully soon to be heritage part of the world. Thank you for a fab week.No photos supplied as they could not justify this place try for yourself”

    • “My Family and I ( 2 Adults and 2 5 year olds) stayed in this superb Cottage a couple of Weeks ago. The Cottage's central location makes it a great base for exploring the Lake District. It is very handy for Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside. We couldn't have asked for better accommodation and the Cottage had everything we required and more. Although we didn't use it, the outside dining /BBQ area is brilliant and the Garden is perfect for young Children. The Cottage is large and could easily accomodate 2 Families. A very comfortable home from home and we will definitely be staying here again.”

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.
