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.

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.

Perfect Location & Great Staff BUT......

We use the dog walk or take our dog off site - why do so many other members think its ok to walk their dog around the site & on the grass next to other peoples pitches - Not only a problem here, but Wardens do need to start dealing with those who can't understand basic rules. Our 2nd visit here & just as beautiful as last time mostly so peaceful, shame the equestrian centre's machinery was operating late on the evening & at 7 am in the morning to spoil the peace. Still a great spot for an over night on route from Scotland.

Fantastic refurbishment of site

Probably one of the best sites we've stayed on. Facilities spotless and great location for northern lakes. It's such a nice site I don't want to shout too much about it as it might get too popular and hard to book a pitch. We only stayed one night but it will definitely be our preferred stop for the northern lake district.

Great Site for Northern Lake District

Spent 8 days at this lovely site, very lucky the weather was perfect, hardly any rain and lovely sunny days. Facilities excellent and very clean, pitches well maintained and level but be aware dont park on the grass, fell foul of the warden who shall I say put me right !!! but that said they where very nice. Only downside was no wi-fi and poor mobile phone signal so if you are a Silver Surfer you might be a bit lost. Have a great time in a beautiful landscape which are breathtaking.

Professional wardens

Arrived for a two week stay. The re-development has been performed very well with smart new facilities. The site location allows many trips to be undertaken within a short time/distance. Sounds obvious, but walkers should do their homework with the appropriate maps and attire before venturing out on some of the Fells. Car parking is not easy unless you have an NT membership or are willing to feed meters. All the more reason to plan your day in what is probably one of the busiest national parks. As usual, the wardens were superb. When I succumbed to the virus which some other members had, because of my circumstances, I was advised to go to the Penrith walk-in facility. The Warden gave great advice and even leant us a disk for the parking. Without the medication from the centre I would not have been able to contemplate a long drive home. Many thanks to the Warden, she went above and beyond what was required. This site also has a great dog walk. Will definitely return.
