Alan Rogers Review

Troutbeck Head Caravan and Motorhome 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 site nestles in a picturesque valley alongside a babbling brook.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.The site has 158 grass/hardstanding pitches.

Situated below the Great Mell Fell and with spectacular views of Blencathra to the west, Troutbeck Head 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 site offers plenty of fun activities - quad bikes, archery, go-karting, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding and much more.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
