Why stay here ...

Troutbeck Head has re-opened following some extensive site improvements. Read about the changes in our Troutbeck Head refurb news article.

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.

GREAT NEW YEAR BREAK

Stayed at Troutbeck to bring in the New Year. We're planning on booking for there again as it was a great site. Great Location the place was spotless, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The walk over the back out of the site towards Dockray is great, it was recommended by the receptionist when we were asking about walks.

Fantastic site in a fantastic location

Fantastic site with stunning views over Blencathra, within 15 mins drive of the A66 and very easily accessed. Myself, the hubby and our pooch, stayed from Boxing day to New Years Day and had a wonderful time. The sites facilities are immaculate and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful, they had made the site lovely and festive and held a small get together in the games room, for those who wanted to see the New Year in with drinks and nibbles. The site is about a 15 min drive to either Penrith or Keswick and is close to lots of the fells if you are into walking/cycling. There is an activity centre right next door for the more adventurous. Lovely site if you have dogs, there is a fabulous do walk which leads up into a forestry commision area. Nice little play area for the kids and a games room for when the weather is too bad for them to play outside. We stayed on a service pitch and it was huge, enough room to park the car next to the caravan and still have the awning up. Would highly recommend this site and will definitely be going back.

Perfect School Holiday Stay

What a beautiful site. The views are amazing and the site is spotless. The shower facilities are wonderful! We stayed in the school holidays over Halloween and the staff held a children's Halloween Party which my daughter loved. There is a dog walk on site which is perfect. It is in such a great location and the wardens were so welcoming. This is the best site we have ever stayed at so far on our caravanning journey. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We will be back.

Wonderful Caravan Experience

Having been visitors to the Trout Beck Head caravan site for over 20 years, we can honestly say it has to be in our top 3 favourite locations. The facilities including the dog walk are excellent and following recent refurbishment even more so. The nearby towns of Keswick and Penrith are always welcoming and very good for eating out. If hill-walking is your sport then Trout Beck Head has it all and more nearby.
