The Troutbeck Inn gives you a relaxed base from which you can easily access all of the Lake District and Cumbria. Believed to be Victorian in construction with high ceilings and large bedrooms the Inn has a warm and spacious feel. Originally a weary travellerís railway hotel and a watering hole for thirsty farmers after the auction next door. The Inn now provides a warm and comfortable base for walkers; cyclist and explorers of the Lakes and Cumbria. Refuel on our excellent food; enjoy a glass of fine wine or real ale and quietly plan tomorrow's activities in our family run bar and restaurant. The Troutbeck Inn is ideally situated with wonderful panoramic views of Blencathra and is also within easy reach of Helvellyn; Ullswater and Derwentwater. Activity Centre just one mile towards Ullswater. Keswick lies 9 miles to the West and Penrith 9 miles to the East. Ullswater is 5 miles due South and has the villages of Pooley Bridge and Glenridding on its shores. The lake steamers run a ferry service on the lake giving you easy access to many other beautiful parts of the lake; or simply take a fantastic Ullswater panoramic trip. In addition to our bed and breakfast rooms we have three beautiful luxury cottages; these are converted from former stables and are in the courtyard to the rear of the Inn. Each cottage is extremely spacious with a lounge and kitchen separate from the bedrooms. The living rooms have a TV and DVD. As our cottages are just across the courtyard from the Inn; why not have a night off from cooking; come and relax and lets us serve you with one of our mouth watering dishes from our delicious menu.
