Outside, there is a mature garden, ideal for sitting out after a long day on the nearby fells, and not forgetting of course the local tavern, a former railway hotel, which is a short walk and welcomes visitors with cask ales and traditional bar food. With Ullswater a short drive away from this superb Lake District cottage, guests can take in the beauty of the lake by embarking on a cruise on one of the Ullswater steamers. The pretty village of Glenridding is also a popular destination, with many charming tea rooms and cafes. For the more experienced mountaineer, Helvellyn, the third highest mountain in England, is close to hand and of course, the notorious Striding Edge - not for the faint-hearted! Rheged visitor centre is also close by, which regularly holds art exhibitions and hosts special events. A twenty minute drive away is the bustling town of Keswick, situated on the shores of Derwentwater. This Troutbeck cottage is perfect to get away from it all, together!
