Knotts Farmhouse

Troutbeck, Ambleside/Troutbeck

Ref: 1016

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Changeover: Saturday


There can be few properties in the whole of the Lake District which offer such stunning views as Knotts Farmhouse. It sits in an elevated hillside position overlooking the lower Troutbeck Valley taking in the whole vista of Lake Windermere with the western fells of Coniston Old Man and the Langdale Pikes in the distance. Whatever the weather this view will enchant you with its different moods and dramatic sunsets.

The 17th century listed farmhouse is part of Knotts Farm and there are walks from the door up the Troutbeck Valley and into the hills. The road to Kirkstone Pass and over to Ullswater passes the gate and the property will make a fine spot from which to tour the whole of the Lake District or you may simply wish to relax on warmer days and enjoy the beautiful location.
