Troutbeck is a charming hamlet with wonderful panoramic views of Blencathra and is also within easy reach of Helvellyn, Ullswater and Derwentwater. The area is a haven for walkers with adventurers tackling Striding Edge on Hellvelyn or experiencing the spectaculer views from Sharp Edge on Blencathra.
You don’t need to stay on land – head over to Ullswater and take to the lakes on a gentle steam cruiser or for something completely different take to the sky and experience the sheer thrill of flying over the most stunning countryside the area offers with Lake District Gyroplanes.
If you want to keep your feet firmly on the ground head over to Rookin House Activity Centre where you can take part in archery , go karting, horse-riding and many more exciting activities.
For rainy day fun don’t miss a visit to The Rheghed Discovery Centre. Situated in Britain’s largest grass covered building, the centre boasts a gallery, café, 2 cinema screens, shops and play areas.
For a pint of local ale or a traditional pub meal check out the Sportsmans Inn. With an elevated position, the pub’s beer garden has some pretty magnificent views of the surrounding fells. Alternatively check out the Troutbeck Inn and try the famous Mell Fell burger.
