Dog-friendly, Townfoot Farmhouse is an outstanding Period Grade 2 Listed Lake District holiday cottage, occupying a picture postcard, glorious location with breath-taking views in every direction. This historic 17th century detached property exudes character, which effortlessly mixes with its 21st century indulgences and is ecologically warmed throughout, with heat from a Biomass boiler. It is luxuriously furnished for relaxation and completed with true flair, creating the perfect holiday home in this sublime setting in the Lakes.

The interior is designed and executed to the highest standard and in complete sympathy with its original farmhouse character. There are nooks and crannies all over the house and interesting ancient details and features in abundance. The house has some wonderful vantage points for spectacular Troutbeck valley views.

On the ground floor are three reception rooms. The living room has under-floor heated stone flags, sturdy oak beams, wood panelling, a warming wood burner set in an inglenook fireplace, and even a Spice cupboard dated to 1694. There is a second sitting room with oak panelling walls, and a 17th century carved oak Court cupboard built into the wall. It has beautiful views over the garden and valley. The designer farmhouse kitchen/dining room and a day room/conservatory lead into the garden. There is a luxurious shower room on the ground floor that also serves a king-size bedroom on the lower ground floor, with its own staircase. From the sitting room, a winding old oak staircase takes to you the first floor where the views get even better and here there are two further spacious bedrooms, one superking-size, and one king-size, together with two further bathrooms. Outside, there is a dog-proof fenced garden, and patio area with seating for 8 and a BBQ

You are surrounded by fabulous walking territory with a footpath directly from the property onto Wansfell.  The picturesque conservation village of Troutbeck is renowned for its numerous listed buildings and vernacular architecture and there is a strong and vibrant community with a village shop and tea room, visiting post office service, church and an excellent pub serving hearty meals and local ales. A few minutes down the road from the holiday cottage brings you to the stunning shores of Lake Windermere.
