Quintessential Westmorland cottage set in the stunning Troutbeck valley

Dating back to the 17th century, Pine Fold is a fine example of a traditional Westmorland cottage set within the tranquil village of Troutbeck. Picture postcard pretty, Pine Fold oozes Olde Worlde character and charm and displays an array of wonderful, original features throughout including a wealth of oak beams, intriguing little alcoves and a magnificent wood burner set in a huge Inglenook. These beautiful, antique features have been cleverly married with modern-day conveniences and traditional décor to create a superb home from home, somewhere to share precious moments with your loved ones.

Troutbeck is a walkers’ paradise offering low and high-level routes through a dramatic Lakeland landscape. Garburn Pass and Troutbeck Tongue can be seen from the south-facing terrace and the lower slopes of Wansfell Pike are just minutes from the cottage.

This quaint hamlet retains the original Post Office, now also a general store and tea room whilst two excellent country pubs are within a short walk of Pine Fold, The Mortal Man and The Queen’s Head, both serving local ales and homemade fayre.

Troutbeck enjoys quick access to the more popular and busier resorts of Ambleside and Windermere, being just a short, 10-minute car drive where you’ll find a good selection of mini supermarkets, shops, galleries, cafes and bars.


A blend of original, antique features married with modern-day facilities
