A Superb Rural Retreat For Four Offering Fine Fell and Lake Views

Hilltop enjoys an enviable position within this small, quaint hamlet, perched at the top of the hill to take full advantage of the stunning views across the valley towards Lake Windermere beyond. The modern layout has been cleverly created to make the best use of that view with the main living areas on the first floor having large picture windows framing the landscape beyond. The sleeping accommodation on the ground floor is equally modern and striking offering superb private and en-suite facilities for two couples or a smaller family.

The beautiful and romantic village of Troutbeck, located just a five-minute drive from the more popular resorts of Windemere and Bowness boasts some of the finest fell walking to be had within the South Lakes so grab your boots (and your waterproof just in case) and head straight out of the door onto the lower slopes of Wansfell Pike and Troutbeck Tongue, two of 214 Wainwright’s just waiting for you to bag! Once back at base, enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the sunny terrace before heading up the road for a hearty meal and drinks at one of two popular pubs in the village, The Queen’s Head, just a stone’s throw of the cottage or the renowned Mortal Man.


Two Kingsize Bedrooms Each With A Luxurious En-Suite Bathroom

From the private parking area, a flight of slate steps leads down to the patio and garden and entrance porch. From here we enter a beautiful upside-down house, created as such to make the best use of the views from the first floor. The large hallway has plenty of storage space for all of your outdoor clobber, with extra hanging space in the small boiler room, perfect for drying off your clothes after a downpour, and a washing machine discreetly tucked away out of view.

Two beautiful Kingsize bedrooms occupy the ground floor, both with a view across the garden and to the Lake and fells beyond, one of the bedrooms with patio doors leading out onto the patio. Both bedrooms enjoy a luxurious ensuite bathroom, one presented in a cool grey colour scheme with discreet lighting, the other in muted tones of cream, both with a powerful shower over the bath, basin, WC and heated towel rail.

Head up the stairs to the first-floor open plan living space where you’re greeted by several large picture windows framing the amazing views towards the Eastern fells. The comfy deep-cushioned sofas and chairs are arranged around a flame effect electric fire and TV, the contemporary styling complementing the exposed beams to the ceiling. There’s a relaxed dining area off the lounge and a super equipped bright, modern kitchen with plenty of workspace under which sits an electric oven, built-in microwave, dishwasher, electric hob and fridge freezer.

Outside and on the ground floor, there’s a large patio, which is a lovely private sun trap in the warmer months with ample furniture for you all to spread out and relax. The garden itself is mostly laid to lawn so sit back, relax and take in the sights and sounds of this idyllic location.

Private parking is available for two cars at the side of the house, above the garden.

Respond to Hilltop at Troutbeck

  • Charles says:

    A great place to stay in a lovely part of “The Lakes “. All very cosy and warm. A well thought out design of a house on two floors; comfortable beds for sleeping on the ground floor so that the most can be made of the views of the fells and Windermere on the second floor. All very clean, tidy and well equipped. And a great price for this area of Cumbria.

  • Robert says:

    Loved our stay here. Place was spotless and had everything we needed. Both bedrooms were lovely and well appointed. Kitchen had everything we needed. Was a bit stormy when we arrived and place was toasty warm and welcoming. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Matthew says:

    Great stay in a lovely quiet location. The property had everything we needed for our stay and was well equipped. Great location for some walks around some of the quieter mountains and less than 10mins drive to the busier areas.

  • Claire says:

    Attractive cottage in wonderful location with many local walks and two good pubs nearby. Well equipped and comfortable, good wifi.

  • Fiona says:

    The house is well located, clean and modern and is very well equipped! Beds very comfy. Close to walks and views are amazing!

  • Jeffrey says:

    We had a wonderful week at Hilltop and we totally agree with the other positive reviews. If you have a very low slung car the driveway to the parking spaces is quite steep.

  • Nikki says:

    A great house whether you want peace & quiet or adventure. It’s a great place for walks straight from the door & lakes for kayaking or swimming just a short drive away. The views are lovely & the house has everything you need. Unfortunately the local tea room/essentials shop was closed down or just shut for the week ( not sure which) but there are two pubs in the village where you can get a decent meal. Our favourite was the Queen’s Head, literally just down the road.

  • Andrew says:

    A lovely cottage in a great location within a very short walk of two very good pubs. Would recommend it for anyone looking for a good base to move around the lakes each day and return to the cosy surroundings of this well presented cottage.

  • Jamie says:

    Lovely home great location

  • Steve says:

    Fantastic setting and lovely house with everything you need for a relaxing break.

  • Helen Dean says:

    The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived. Beautiful views from the garden and the living room windows down the valley to Lake Windermere. The garden has sun throughout the day. There’s a great walk from the cottage to Ambleside with 360 degree views across the hills and fells, and lots of other walks suggested from the cottage. There’s plenty of great walks with half an hour’s drive. Coniston, Ullswater and Windermere lakes are in easy reach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
