Townfoot Farmhouse, Troutbeck was constructed in 1694, as a wedding gift for the son of the local landowner – who lived in the National Trust’s property “Town End”, just a short walk up the hill. It shares a lot of design and build features with the National Trust property and has been painstakingly restored and conserved to combine those features with modern comforts. There are lots of little nooks and crannies in the house and quirky little features. The house has some great view-points out across the valley, with amazing, peaceful, classic Lake District scenes outside each window.

Entering from the garden, on the ground floor, you walk through patio doors into the garden room. This leads into the kitchen – a mixture of traditional farmhouse and high-tech convenience including Neff appliances – extra wide induction hob, two ovens, a dishwasher and american style fridge/freezer. At the other end of the kitchen is the dining area with a large, long table, seating 8.

Leaving the kitchen, you enter the lounge, which has under-floor heated, original stone flags and chunky oak beams and oak-panelled walls. There is a fantastic log burner set in an inglenook fireplace, and there are three large sofas. There is also a smart HDTV and DVD player. Tucked away in the corner is a nod to the date of the property – a spice cupboard, engraved and dated to 1694.

Set off the lounge is the ground-floor bedroom and shower room, ideal for groups with older members, who may not wish to tackle the old staircase to the first floor. The bedroom has a door out onto the garden, and the shower room is fully tiled with beautiful porcelain tiles and is fitted with a large monsoon shower.

Just of the lounge is the original oak staircase that leads to the first floor. up here are three good sized bedrooms – one double, one king and one superking/twin. There are also two bathrooms, with showers over baths. The bedrooms also have spectacular views over Troutbeck valley and and are each featureful with lots of oak panelling and window seats in each room.

Outside the holiday cottage, there is a dog-proof, fenced garden and a slate-gravelled patio area with a barbeque and large table/seating for eight.

Townfoot Farmhouse, Troutbeck is nestled in a stunning location with great walks in all directions straight from the door. The small and pretty village of Troutbeck is well-known for its character buildings and traditional Lake District architecture. There is a village shop and tea room, a church and two great pubs serving good food and local beers. Within easy reach is Ambleside, Windermere, and the shores of both lake Windermere and Ullswater.
