About Townfoot Farmhouse

Townfoot Farmhouse sleeps up to eight guests and dates back to the 17th Century. This fabulous five star detached Lakeland retreat oozes character and charm, perfectly blended with modern day luxuries to ensure a high degree of comfort.

Superbly located, the farmhouse nestles in the picturesque Troutbeck Valley, just a short walk from the shores of Lake Windermere right in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Tucked away from the crowds in an oasis of calm, the farmhouse is perfectly sandwiched between Windermere and Ambleside and only a short drive to the many amenities and attractions these two popular Cumbrian towns have to offer.

Every bit as fabulous inside as out, Townfoot Farmhouse is an excellent choice for discerning friends and families who want to holiday together or celebrate a special occasion. With three living rooms on the ground floor adorned with beams, oak paneling and character, an impressive inglenook with log burner and a beautifully designed kitchen equipped for a full range of catering, there is plenty of space to relax and socialise in comfort. Enjoy morning tea in the sun room or supper in the dining room planning the next day's adventures. When the sun shines make the most of the beautiful outside environment and enjoy alfresco dining whilst soaking up the spectacular views. Then at the end of the day retire to one of the four quaint bedrooms that assure a good night's sleep.

The surrounding area is a walker's paradise. Stroll down to the shore of lake Windermere or explore one of the footpaths leading straight out from the garden onto Wansfell. Wander into Troutbeck and marvel at the beautiful architecture, pick up some groceries at the village store, enjoy lunch at The Mortal Man (serving excellent food!), or tea and cake at the tea rooms.

Alternatively, jump in the car and discover the beauty of the stunning Lakeland scenery with dramatic fells, glorious green valleys, majestic lakes, and pretty woodland bursting into life in the warmer months, colourful in the autumn and quite simply magical when sparkling in the winter.
