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.

    The cottage is beautiful and traditional but very comfortable and well equipped. Lovely comfortable and modernised but charming bedrooms (particularly liked the ensuite in the master bedroom- what a view).The garden is fantastic with level lawn at front but also terraces which get the sun at different times of day. It is secluded and quiet with amazing views across the valley, but also within easy walking distance of two great pubs. Easy drive to Windermere and Ambleside and lots of walking options from the door (recommend paths to Ambleside and back via Skelghyll woods and Wansfell Pike- also the walk up High Street).

  • Sarah says:

    The cottage was lovely and the garden and views were amazing! The garden terraces mean that you can get the sun in morning or evening and the little paved courtyard holds the heat. So peaceful as well apart from birds in the morning! No traffic noise in spite of being a short walk from the main road and the Queens Head. Also easy walking (5min) to the Mortal Man with its great beer garden. The cottage bedrooms were comfortable and bright and there were plenty of showers/bathrooms. The kitchen was one of the best equipped I have experienced in a holiday cottage. The location was so handy for Windermere and Ambleside- lovely walk to Ambleside via Skelghyll Woods and back by Wansfell Pike. We would definitely recommend the cottage and location. Lakeland Retreats team were responsive and contactable. Thanks again!
