Around and About

The village of Troutbeck is ideal for those wanting to enjoy walking and cycling whilst being situated away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Windermere (within 3 miles) and Ambleside (4 miles).  All the attractions in these Lake District hotspots are within close proximity and excellent dining is also available at two highly reputable country pub restaurants located in the village.  Walkers will love this location, and guests can enjoy the many and varied walks, climbs and views in and around the Troutbeck area.


  • From the M6 take Junction 36 and follow the signs for Western Lakes/Windermere A590 (A591) for approximately 16 miles.
  • On entering Windermere (The Windermere Hotel is on your right) keep straight on for Ambleside.
  • After approximately 1/2 mile turn right at the mini-roundabout (signed Kirkstone Pass/Ullswater A592).
  • After around 2 miles turn left (signed Troutbeck) - beware this is an acute turn.  Proceed up the hill and turn right at the top.
  • After approximately 100 metres turn right at a white cottage into a forecourt.  High Fold Guest House is the building immediately ahead of you.
