Why stay 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.

return to old favourite

My previous stay at TH was in Sept 2017 and was the last time away in the caravan with a close family member and dog. Both sadly passed away and so I was apprehensive about coming back caravanning solo. I was greeted by pleasant and friendly wardens who despite being busy, had the time and consideration throughout my eight night stay just before October half term, to make me feel comfortable and safe on site. I have visited TH many times and the setting is brilliant for walking. Helvellyn, Blencathra are all easy to reach with Penrith/Keswick close to hand. Covid security measures were not over the top and people abided by them. Thank you to the wardens for working so hard to keep us all safe and able to enjoy our holidays.

Our 2nd great holiday at Troutbeck since July

We returned, very sadly, from Troutbeck Head last Saturday after a brilliant holiday even though the weather wasn't brilliant. We love the site & had a pitch in our favourite place, overlooking Blencathra. Stunning views, especially at sunset. What more could you want? There was a very friendly welcome & we found the wardens always hardworking, professional, and always showing excellent customer care. The site was well kept & facilities were spotless, though I still prefer the unrefurbished facilities with their layout & underfloor heating. Nothing wrong with these though, except for the lack of a hook or shelf in the toilets section of the block! Our only real gripe is the lack of wifi & the high prices. We shall be back though, but not in high season.

Beautiful Lake District

Stayed 7 nights on our latest of several visits to this wonderful site. This time, we some what reluctantly sacrificed stunning views for a serviced pitch which gave us complete self isolation. My new mobile managed a signal and maybe Wi Fi will one day be available but if not perhaps a break from it is a good thing. Site and all of the area very busy for our stay, wardens, as we have come to expect, all working very hard to maintain the clubs standards and to keep us safe. We wish to pay tribute to the way in which the staff on all of the sites we have visited this have coped in this very difficult times. THANK YOU.

2 night stay touring the lakes....

Lovely site if a little isolated. Penrith & Keswick circa 7-8 miles away. Friendly & helpful staff when questioned about what roads should be avoided en rte to Coniston. Cocklakes Farm Shop is a must for quality & exceptional value meats, there is also a tea room there but we didn't use it. Parking is directly off the A66 up an incline but adequate parking for motorhomes. Well recommended if you have alternative transport or just want to 'chill'..... Adjacent activity centre has quad bikes & pony trekking amongst other things.

Outstanding Club Site

This was our 1st visit to this beautiful site. From the moment we arrived, until we left 3 weeks later, each member of staff we saw had a friendly smile on their faces. They all work so hard to keep the site in it’s immaculate condition. One day, one of the staff was even on his hands and knees pulling out weeds on a pitch! The facilities were obviously limited at the moment, but it didn’t seem much of a problem as guests were obviously using their own. We were on a Service pitch which are some of the best and largest we have come across. I have read a recent review where there was a grumble about a family who was staying in one of the glamming units playing football. We were there at the same time and our pitch was near the unit they were in, but I have to say I couldn’t see a problem, and members should not be put off by the glamming units. All in all, we had a lovely 3 weeks there, and the site and staff are a credit to the Club! Well done to everyone.
