price

This was our second visit to Troutbeck Lovely site, friendly wardens.A bit noisy as grass cutting on both our days on our last trip,understand work has to be done but maybe should be kept between 9am till 12. not all day project. Many of our other carravanners mentioned the cost, quite pricey no midweek offers,maybe this could be the reason site half full. will still return as cleanliness is perfect.

First Visit

This was our first visit to this site, visited other cub sites in the Lakes many times. Lovely tidy site facilities spotless all credit to the very friendly wardens. Depending where you pitch good views of Blencathra, also depending where you pitch may find the noise from the activity centre next door a bit annoying, quad bikes, and shooting, didn't bother us and we were outside most of the time as we were blessed with nice weather, but maybe something to be aware of if you have a nervous dog etc, as I know some who visited have found this a problem. Picthes seem to vary a bit in size, we had plenty of grass as many other pitches do too. Dog walk from the site passed all the service pitches, which really haven't a view. The site is quite away out so MH owners, unless they maybe enjoy long walks or cycling might find this inconvenient. We ate out twice, The Royal at Dockray just ok and The Old Mill at Mungrisedale which was excellent. Will return to this site in the future I am sure.

Club site

Just returned from 5 night stay . We have stayed here several times over the years due to its location & you know what to expect. This is first time since refurbishment & as others have mentioned the toilet block (2 of them) are excellent & spotlessly maintained. A shelf near hairdryer would be useful as there is no where to put towel & toiletries except on the floor, a minor niggle but easily rectified - hopefully. The pitches are large & well spaced but im generally getting a little disalusioned wth club sites as they are more resembling car parks & views are predominately of other caravans etc. There are lovely views beyond the caravans dependant upon where you are sited. Im begining to look elsewhere as we have been impressed with other non club sites where pitching is more open & not looking directly into other caravans. Having said that im sure we will return . Wardens friendly .fish & chip van very good on tues & fridays. Nearby Pooley Bridge is delightful & the park & ride a great idea. The walk along Aira Force is lovely.. we dont have children with us but games room on site & activity center next door will be a plus for those who do.

A credit to the Club, its wardens & its members

It may have been refurbished a year ago but it looks like it was only yesterday. We stayed there for 4 nights in June after visiting Dockray Meadow & Coniston Park Coppice before heading back to Dorset. The site was a credit to the Club, its wardens and the members who used it. Everything was spotless and well supplied. The wardens were very welcoming and helpful. If we return to the Lake District we will certainly use this site again.

10 day break

After a warm welcome to the site we proceeded to our booked service pitch. Site well kept and maintained with facilities as you would expect on cc sites. We were both badly bitten by the large amount of midges on site,choose your pitch carefully!!!. Anyone wishing to put up an annexe to their awning for use by families should take note that you wont be allowed to pitch anything on the grass!!

Holiday Highlight !

We used a total of 8 sites during our recent tour of England and Scotland, and whilst all the Club sites used were excellent, Troutbeck Head was a particular favourite. Access is very easy from the nearby A66, making it a great location for exploring the northern Lakeland area. The reception was warm and welcoming and also provided a good deal of useful information about the site and local attractions. The site is beautifully laid our and maintained, and although the location, being in Cumbria, inevitably slopes in many places, great care has been taken to provide spacious pitches which are pretty level and provide not only a feeling of space, but also great views of the surrounding countryside. The shower/toilet block is more than adequate for numbers, and is spotlessly cleaned and maintained. Water, power and refuse disposal is close at hand right across the site. There are walks directly from the site itself, with many more very close to hand and there is a local activity centre nearby for those who like something physical to do ! Beyond that, the northern lakes are very easily accessible, as are many interesting local towns such as Keswick, Pooley Bridge and Ullswater, where there are interesting shops and attractive cafes to be enjoyed after a not-to-be-missed cruise on the lake steamer. The site is superbly located in the Cumbrian countryside, with much to do nearby, but also offers peace and quiet for when you want or need it. This is a superb site in a terrific location, with something to offer for everyone. We look forward to many more visits to Troutbeck Head.

Beautiful site

Beautiful views, excellent facilities and great access to all the Lake District has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Troutbeck Head in May. Good dog walking from the site.

Lovely site, great views

We joined the C&MC this year, and this was our first stay on one of their sites. We were made most welcome on arrival, and being mid-week had a number of pitches to choose from. The toilets and showers are excellent, clean and well situated to be not too far from any pitch. The staff also stagger cleaning times so that there is always at least one block open. We were fortunate in having warm sunny days, and the view from many pitches across the fells is stunning. If in a motorhome and you don't like to move off pitch, stock up before arrival as the site shop has limited produce and you are out in the countryside - nearest supermarkets are Keswick or Penrith. There was noise at night from the neighbouring activity centre while we were there - farm machinery up & down the access road until about 2 am; it didn't bother us, but could be a pain if on one of the pitches immediately next to that road. Overall, a really nice site, we will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Introduction

This was our first visit to the Lake District and we couldn’t have stayed at a better site. We stayed on a serviced pitch at the upper side of the site and it was excellent. The only issue is the WiFi, or lack of it. Easily overcome for us as we have an o2 Hot Spot device. Otherwise make your phone a Hot Spot. Maybe WiFi could be installed. We had a great stay. Plenty of places to visit. Plenty of walking. The whole site is beautifully kept including the refurbed toilet / shower block. This site is a credit to all of the wardens. We will definitely return.

A Three Week Stay

Really enjoyed our stay here and will return. We had a serviced pitch at the top end of the site. Although we expected the site to be quite ‘bleak’, from the photos, this is not actually the case and certainly in the old quarry area (serviced pitchers) it is reasonably sheltered. The site is good for access to the Northern Lakes, although walking from the site is limited. Facilities are excellent although a few hooks in the open areas of the facilities would be really useful, obviously there are hooks in cubicles and showers. Apparently the decision for no hooks is from centre, why? There’s a good farm shop and cafe/restaurant about two or three miles away (lovely food in the cafe) although for bulk food buying for long stayers it’s Keswick or Penrith! Milk and bread is also available on site. As others have noted there is no WiFi on this site but for us this was not an issues as there is good phone reception for at least BT (assumed EE) and O2. Creating a hotspot with BT was better than the WiFi on many sites we’ve been on. We didn’t find the adjacent activities centre intrusive in any way although we were pitched in an area of the site which is furthest away from it
