This site is set in classical north Lakeland countryside, near Ullswater (4m) and surrounded by the great outdoors. Fabulous for nature lovers and walkers alike, the site nestles in a valley alongside a babbling brook, below Great Mell Fell and with spectacular views of Blencathra to the west for superb views of the central mountains, you can drive over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass to explore some of Wordsworths favourite haunts in Windermere, Ambleside and Grasmere. A lake cruise on Ullswater is a must, with the option of a scenic walk between Howtown and Glenndding (7m). For the energetic, the Rookin House Farm Centre next door offers go-karting, quad bikes, archery and horseriding (to name but a few activities), but it is advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Note: there are two Troutbecks in this area. This is not the Troutbeck near Windermere.

As usual, a quality caravan club site. Directions to it were excellent. Entrance and exit could be tricky as it is on a slope, but only if your clutch isn't up to scratch. We were made very welcome. It is quite a large site which is laid out so well you don't realise how many caravans etc could be sited. two spotlessly clean blocks for showers and toilets and excellent laundry and washing up facilities. Recycling is well thought out as are water/chemical waste points. The scenery around the site is beautiful. Convenient for touring as well.
