Beck Cottage is a charming end of terrace cottage ideally located in the village of Troutbeck Bridge in the Lake District National Park. Dating from the mid 1800's the cottage perfectly blends character and traditional charm with modern day conveniences including a contemporary and well equipped kitchen and WiFi and central heating throughout. Sleeping four people in two bedrooms, and with it's own private garden, it is ideal for couples, friends or families. If you want a break from cooking enjoy a meal at The Sun Hotel which is just a short stroll away.
Troutbeck Bridge is a pretty village sitting at the foot of the Troutbeck Valley and just a stone's throw from the shores of Lake Windermere. Perfectly located between the towns of Ambleside (3 miles) and Windermere (1 mile) there are plenty of shops, cafes and amenities just a short distance away, yet you are tucked away from the hustle and bustle during the busy summer months. Whether you like to walk, cycle or take to the water, there is plenty to keep you busy here. The eastern fells, Kentmere Horseshoe and the High Street Range are easily accessible directly from the cottage as are many other walks in the Troutbeck Valley. Mountain bikers will love Troutbeck and Jenkin Crag - an old bridleway that traverses Wansfell Pike - and watersports lovers can go paddle boarding, sailing, canoeing, kayaking or windsurfing on Lake Windermere.
Other attractions nearby include The World of Beatrix Potter, the Steamboat museum and The Lakes Aquarium. For a change of scene hop on board a ferry to the western shores of the lake and explore the National Trust's Hill Top and Wray Castle. For those looking for a challenge you can hike to the top of Scafell Pike (the tallest mountain in England) or test your metal at Go Ape in Grizedale Forest. If you would rather simply enjoy the stunning scenery and relax with a cuppa and a slice of cake there are plenty of cafes and restuarants with gorgeous views to choose from.
Beck Cottage welcomes guests all year round with short breaks also available.
