Troutbeck Head Club Campsite in Penrith is set in classically beautiful north Lake District countryside, and is conveniently only 4 miles from the restaurants and shops of Ullswater. A fabulous getaway for nature lovers and walkers, the campsite nestles in a picturesque valley alongside a babbling brook.

Situated 10 miles from Keswick and below the Great Mell Fell, the site has spectacular views of Blencathra to the west and provides 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.

Excellent site

Troutbeck Head Club Campsite
Only stayed for one night en route to Scotland on the North Coast 500 - it was in a good location just off the M6 to break the drive up. The site was in a lovely setting, peaceful, good for walking the dog, the facilities were spotless and it would be a great base to get out and about in the Northern Lakes.

Tranquil Stay with Exceptional Facilities and Perfect Location

Troutbeck Head Club Campsite
The Campsite is a fantastic destination. The facilities are great! There is a games room with a pool, a huge Connect 4, and information about the local area. Great M6 connectivity. The campsite is impeccably maintained, with pristine facilities (showers, toilets and wash up area looked brand new!) and exceptionally welcoming staff. (even when booked in on the wrong day :-P ) The van pitch I had was with with EHU pitch was great. The site provided a peaceful stay, free from any disturbances from the nearby Rookin House activity centre. The convenience of getting to the M6, Penrith, and Keswick makes this site a must-return for me. The hill opposite is a great-looking walk, with views of Blencathra and the hills! Highly recommended for a memorable stay. Lord Adams ;-)

Brilliant site slightly off the beaten track

Troutbeck Head Club Campsite
An absolutely brilliant site which has top notch facilities just off the beaten track. Lovely views of hills and mountains and a lovely stream running through the site. Worth noticing the activity centre next door which can make some noise in daylight hours - only one which caused us an issue was shooting which scared our dog. Other than that brilliant 👍 If you stay, take a wander to Harry’s Bench - top tip! David & Rachel👍

Wonderful site with excellent facilities and easy access to the M6

Troutbeck Head Club Campsite
This is an excellent site which is really well maintained. The facilities are spotless and the staff are really friendly. There’s a lovely dog walk available on site. We stayed on the fully serviced pitches which is further away from the nearby Rookin House activity centre so had no noise at all from them. We will definitely be back as access to the M6, Penrith and Keswick is super easy. The Troutbeck Inn up the road is excellent the food is delicious and the staff are very welcoming and friendly.
