Why stay here ...

Troutbeck Head has now re-opened after extensive redevelopment. Read all about the improvements Here.

Troutbeck Head Club Site in Penrith is set in classically beautiful North Lakeland countryside, and is conveniently only 4 miles from the restaurants and shops of Ullswater. A fabulous getaway for nature lovers and walkers, the caravan park nestles in a picturesque valley alongside a babbling brook.

Situated below the Great Mell Fell and with spectacular views of Blencathra to the west, Troutbeck Head Club Site gives you access to some of the prettiest walks in the country. For superb views of the central mountains, a drive over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass is not to be missed. This will lead you to Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere, where you can sample the local restaurants and explore some of Wordsworth's favourite haunts. A lake cruise on Ullswater is a must, with the option of a scenic walk between Howtown and Glenridding (only 7 miles away). For the energetic, the Rookin House Farm Centre next door to the caravan site offers plenty of fun activities - quad bikes, archery, go-karting, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding and much more.

The site provides easy access to numerous lakes, mountains, valleys & rivers, whilst pretty villages, country pubs and farm shops are plentiful, making Troutbeck the ideal destination for exploring and relaxing in the Cumbrian countryside.

Second visit still excellent site

Just returned from the site last week , just before it is due to close for the winter. Staff excellent when we arrived it was teeming down, the staff guided us to the pitches that weren't holding water and helped us to pitch up.The weather changed for the better after Sunday, we had a great time walking round Derwentwater, had a great meal in the Troutbeck Inn, just been taken over by a family great welcome, our two Yorkies enjoyed the treat from the owners, as l said food was marvelous. Highgate farm shop is worth a visit, only thing that disappoints is the car parking charge £3 for two hours more for longer at Keswick, that's rip off Britain for you. Booths is great supermarket on apar with waitrose. Its a bit of a treck from Troutbeck to get to Keswick so good planning is required to cut the journeys down. As the previous post wish they would get the flush sorted out on the toilets, l think they are set to save water, only fills half the cistern so you need to flush twice, can't think why of all the places in the country the lakes don't lack water. l believe the site is due for an overhaul this winter, be interesting to see how well the make over is. All in all though a gem of a site

Very Good But!

We visited shortly before the site closed for the winter. The weather could have been better but did not prevent us getting the best from our visit. Staff were great, chatty, helpful and efficient. The site is generally well kept, our one criticism however was the toilet showers. Whilst the showers were the roomiest we have seen, they are in need of an upgrade. Painted floors in showers these days are not to the standard we have come to expect from the club. My wife visited two separate toilets during our stay neither of which she or the previous occupant it seemed could get the toilet to flush. Otherwise on the positive side we will visit again.

Pleasant site

We have stayed here on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed the site. This time was no exception. Our only concern on this visit was the condition of the flooring in the shower block nearest to Reception. However the facilities themselves were spotlessly clean and always warm. All of the wardens we dealt with were extremely pleasant and friendly too.

Very nice site!

We had a lovely few days here. Although it was very wet underfoot, the site was well cared for and the toilet blocks very clean and warm - the underfloor heating ensured the floor was always dry. We walked to Aira Force one day - in spate after all the rain! - and there’s a nice NT cafe there as well. Another day was spent in Keswick, well worth a visit. We’ll definitely be back.

Pleasant site

We were invited to a relative's wedding near Ullswater so decided to take the caravan and have a break in the area. Troutbeck Head site is clean and tidy with great views of the mountains, when the cloud lifts. The toilet blocks need updating quite badly and there are only 8 showers for ladies in the two huge blocks. However this did not affect our holiday and we really did enjoy the site, despite the rain and winds but it was October.
