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.

A small shop is now available in reception selling essential items.

Peaceful Cumbria

Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site
Beautiful site. Booked a super pitch with water and drainage - well worth the price Will definitely return to explore the more remote/less ‘touristy’ parts of the Lakes

Lovely stopover

Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site
We just stayed one night on our way from the Midlands to Scotland. There is a woodland walk directly from the site. There are two amenity blocks so there is always open. Lovely stay and very friendly staff. Thank you

Perfect peaceful place

Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site
First visit to this site but certainly will not be the last! Beautifully located and kept, extremely friendly and helpful staff, good sized pitches (we were on a fully serviced), at one with nature, red squirrels made daily visits. Easy to get to most of the Lakes and not a site that suffers when it rains.

Beauty of the Earth

Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site
Just returned from a fabulous 4 days on site . Peace and tranquility and with one with nature . The facilities are spotless and the staff are the most friendly we’ve experienced for a long time Nothing was too much trouble and even when our electric blew , Warden arrived ready and equipped to sort us out . Great location for touring the lakes and gorgeous scenery to be seen all around . Travelled along single track roads to get to done fabulous locations as well as the lovely towns of Keswick , Ambleside , pooled bridge , Ulswater , Grassmere , Buttermere and numerous other villages . We were on pitch 105 and no noise heard . We also didn’t get bitten by midges but did use a blue fluorescent light to avoid them . Definitely will be booking a return trip and next time will take swimwear to open swim in the lakes

Lovely site but a bit of noise!

Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site
An absolutely gorgeous site with all the usual facilities and lovely staff. However I have knocked a mark off as there was quite some noise directly behind us (pitch 79) from a shooting range. It made our stay not as peaceful as it should have been. Nevertheless a nice site in a stunning location.
