Would highly recommend \"The Troutbeck Inn \"Firstly all staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very comfortable. Food is great. Location is ideal for visiting The Lakes and surrounding area. Will definitely return in the future. All in all \"perfect \"Thanks to all at The Troutbeck.
Reviewer:Moyra | Mon 2nd Oct 2017
When you arrive you are welcomed like a long lost friend rather than a hotel guest. The selection of food is more than adequate and freshly cooked for you. The grilled cod and potatoe was very well cooked and presented. There is a good selection of draft beers, I went for the wainwright a a exceptional pint. Dogs and their escorts are allowed in the bar area which is ideal for walkers 2 legged and those with four! ( dogs get spoilt). I only stayed for two nights but trying to find a reason for going back if only for the freshly cooked breakfast. Thanks for looking after me.
Reviewer:Terry Leefarr | Mon 2nd Oct 2017
We stayed for one night as we were meeting up with family staying in the area. Had such a warm and friendly welcome by the owners and also let us check in early, as room was ready.Food was amazing and instead of meeting up with family, we brought them here instead, and we all ate in the on site bar/restaurant.Its under new management now who have only be there for around 6 weeks, but going on how we were welcomed and looked after it is bound to be a big success. I just wished we had stayed longer but will a million percent be back at some point.Thank you so much for our short stay and it was so nice to meet you. Take care and good luck with your new adventure.
Reviewer:Andy Taylor | Fri 29th Sep 2017
It is our second visit to Troutbeck Inn.Our first introduction to the new owners, Pauline, Colin, Nicky and Alan.Also not forgetting Sue and the little girl. it is a very warm and welcoming establishment. Doing every thing to make myself (Marian), (Allen) and our dog Honey comfortable. The food was well presented and very tasty .There was a happy atmosphere at all times. Our ages and health permitting we would definitely stay at The TroutbeckInn again and will recommend it to all our friends.

Lovely stay. Very charming old building. Clean and comfy room and shower room. Excellent food . Owners had only taken over the day we arrived and what lovely people they are. Wish them all the best and look forward to returning. The only reason i havent given 5 stars is because rooms are a bit tired and in need of decorating but that is something they will get round to. Im sure it will be really cosy in the winter with fires going. Bar and restaurant lovely and great that we could take the dog.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are all looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Reviewer:Martin Adams | Sat 22nd Jul 2017
As a mature person on my own, I was apprehensive - I need not have been.Apart from the initial problem when I was told that I was not booked in and this was quickly corrected, everything was perfect for me.The room was clean, comfortable and had everything that I needed.I didn\'t sample the evening meal but if it was anything like the breakfast, it would have been superb.Pleasant staff and a good position.
Reviewer:Patricia Round | Fri 21st Jul 2017
This was our second visit accompanied by our dog that had been made most welcome last time, both by the staff and the onsite dog. After having booked we hoped that the food would be as good as on the previous visit and we were not disappointed. You will not get better food any where and the Bacon at breakfast is the best we have ever had anywhere. The room was a bit smaller than the one we had previously but was adequate for our visit. The only negative thing was the fact that there were steps down into the bathroom and the light switch was inside the room. Having said that the shower was so large you could have fit a Sumo wrestler in it. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a visit to the Northern Lakes.

The pub was extremely clean throughout and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was most enjoyable, the best we have ever had at other places we\'ve stayed. We did not have evening meals because we looked at the sample menu and felt it was not for us because we like more basic home cooked food.We would return here again.

Just had a week here in this lovely hotel, it is welcoming and friendly, very restful. The owners have created a first class establishment and they welcome pets also, very important to many. The food is very good, hearty breakfasts of cereals, fruit, yoghurts juices, and the cooked breakfasts are really well done with a great choice, and not greasy at all. The dinner menu is excellent, with a very tempting range of dishes, none of your chips with everything here. They even have swiss ice cream. The owner is very helpful and always available without being intrusive. The hotel itself has a real country charm, from the lovely climbers on the walls to indoors the decor and paintings, make it unique. Very clean also, even the single room felt very accomodating with great views. There are also holiday cottages available.I would highly recommend The Troutbeck inn for a short break or longer stay, it is well placed for Ullswater, Keswick and northern lakes.

Fantastic hotel in a great location however the highlight of our stay was the quality of food and service in the restaurant. Highly recommended

Enjoyable 3 night break en route to Scotland. Well prepared warm cottage with all facilities. Excellent dinner menu and one of the best full breakfasts I\'ve tasted. Would recommend this Inn and hope to return
Reviewer:Mr. Peter Sanger | Tue 10th Jan 2017
This was our second stay in the barn conversion cottages. They are very comfortable and well appointed with excellent views. The cottages are also well heated.It may be worth noting that the fridges do not have freezer compartments. This was speedily remedied by the owners who brought up a small freezer for us.For those of us that don\'t mind cooking when we are on holiday;some of the pots and pans require upgrading. The frying pans in Blencathra Cottage were very old, somewhat burnt and unusable.All other equipment was of a good standard and the owners very willing to help with any needs and requests.We enjoyed a fabulous New Year\'s Eve dinner at the Troutbeck in. The standard of the food and menu was very high and among the very best I have sampled. We thoroughly enjoyed both our stays and would book again.
Reviewer:Theresa Coates | Sat 7th Jan 2017
Food was wonderful quality and quantity.new shower really appreciated.room size fine and plenty of room for dog.The room would benefit from a lamp by the kettle and slightly better lamps for reading in bed,but all b&bs seem to be similar in this.Gorgeous views and quiet at night,nice drive to Ullswater ferry at Glenridding.
Reviewer:Sarah Worthington | Sat 7th Jan 2017
Great view from window, spotlessly clean bath and bedroom, dream breakfasts, friendly but non intrusive staff - amazingly organised and efficient! Nice traditional bar and dining area with open fire. Radiator in room very hot, advise turn off overnight. Hot water a problem - requires patience as does moody shower. Great place for access to Lakes without the crush of main centres.

My wife and I spent a very relaxing evening and comfortable night at Troutbeck Inn in November.We found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful and the Inn was cosy and welcoming.Our room was perfectly adequate with nice furniture and a comfortable bed and we had a lovely view.The Inn is only a 15-20 minute drive from Keswick and about 10 minutes from Lake Ullswater.The most memorable part of the stay was the food;absolutely delicious.The steak and the boeuf Bourgignon are worth a 90 minute drive alone.The very generous breakfast was also beautifully cooked. It is a shame that the breakfast was not included in the cost of the room on Booking.com\'s website.We paid an extra £10 each. However, we will certainly return.

All meals, evening and breakfast, were delicious, although nothing specifically vegitarian on the menu, if that\'s what you require. Rooms were clean, warm and ideal after a long day in the hills, with room to dry clothes in the en-suite and hot showers. The staff were helpful and efficient. What really made this was the cosy atmosphere:there was room to relax around the fire after dinner;and friendly other residents, including the four-legged ones!

Really enjoyable stay could not find any fault whatsoever.We had our dog with us who was made as welcome as ourselves !We stayed for 1 night before travelling to Center Parcs the following week.The accommodation was excellent, the bed was lovely and comfortable and we had an excellent nights sleep.We had an evening meal which was cooked to perfection- congrats to the Chef. Again the breakfast could not be faulted and was again cooked to perfection -10++++.Rowan and her staff could not do enough for us and were very hospitable.Personally I cannot understand some of the previous reviews I have read which appear to be extremely opposite to what we experienced. Fellow guests that we spoke to all agreed that it was EXCELLENT.We will most definitely stay again.Carry on the good work Troutbeck and our best wishes for the future.

I will definitely stay again and would recommend it to friends.

Reviewer:Lesley Old | Wed 7th Sep 2016
Stayed here from Saturday to Monday and the location was great. Just off the main road and had lovely views from the bedroom. Big spacious room that was great for us and our two big dogs. Decor in the room was fine, bathroom was slightly small but I\'d take that to have a larger room. The room was clean except some dust on top of the plug sockets and a couple of cob webs. The bed was fine, we both slept well. The carpet was lovely and soft. The downstairs area was lovely, comfy seats, candle light and generally cozy and relaxing. We didn\'t eat at the inn as we didn\'t fancy anything from the menu but it was always busy. One thing that would be great is to have a dog water bowl outside. We got one of our dogs food bowls but I sure if we had asked they would have had a water bowl. In short I would recommend Troutbeck Inn and would stay there again.
Reviewer:Sarah Hillier | Mon 5th Sep 2016
We were trvelling from Essex to Western Scotland and wanted a stopover in the Lake District to spend a day there. We had booked a B&B in Keswick which due to a family commitment was unable to honour the booking.A quick bit of research and I booked The Troutbeck Inn at relatively short notice.The room was a good size with an en-suite shower room and was very comfortable. The added bonus was an excellent restaurant on the premises as well as a bar serving local real ale.We had a very pleasant 2 night stay and would recommend the Inn as a stopover point or for a longer stay on the edge of the Lake District.

A lovely Inn and B&B that is dog friendly as well. The staff are very pleasant. The food is exceptional, you will struggle to eat all the excellent breakfast. The Inn is ideally situated if you want to explore the lakes of Ullswater and Derwent and the mountains Skiddaw and Helvellyn. The only slight negative is,if you want a bit of nightlife besides their bar, is that the nearest town Keswick is 9 miles away (about 15 mins in car). We would definitely stay there again.Ideal scenic walks if you do take your dog includeAira force and around Gobarrow about 4 hoursKeswick upto the top of Skiddaw and back about 10 milesGlenridding to Howtown about 7 miles either start or finish on the boat at Glenridding be aware the last boat returns about 5,30pmWalk all the way round Derwent water about 8 hoursGlenridding upto Helvellyn.Note:research these walks first for routes as some aren’t that well signposted

You will not get a better Breakfast anywhere and all the food was served hot and on a hot plate. The room was a little dated and could have been improved by the addition ofa small table under the window. However being a old building it the room added to the charm of the Inn and I am sure any American would have loved it.

Room was small and comfy, very much what you would expect from a traditional Lakeland Inn. The ensuite bathroom was down a steep flight of steps so if you have mobility issues you may wish to speak to the inn before booking. What really makes the Troutbeck stand out is its restaurant. The food was outstanding and the general atmosphere perfect for a special meal.

The room was clean and comfortable, although the the pillows felt old and somewhat hard and lumpy. The general decor of the whole inn is beautiful. Cosy and comfortable with a lovely open fire to sit in front of. The food was fabulous. We had aimed to eat at the inn on the night we arrived and then find a nice country pub on the second evening. But the food was so wonderful we ate there a second time. The trout was the best I\'ve ever eaten! The breakfasts were also beautifully cooked and presented... Full English, porridge, kippers, fruit, toast...We shall certainly be returning.

We stayed on Sunday 8 May 2016.We took our small terrier dog with us, and he was made to feel very welcome too.He was allowed to eat with us in the bar area, which haslovely views and delicious food.The hotel and room are immaculately clean.Our room No 1 was roomy, with a very comfortable bed and nice white duvet.The barman and two waitresses were very attentive, polite and friendly.There are some wonderful walks around the hotel too.Would definitely stay here again.Go here if you like to eat, sleep and relax well, and if you appreciate beautiful surroundings.

Stayed with another couple for the weekend.Rooms were large,very clean and comfortable.Breakfast was great,didn\'t need to eat during the day.Evening meal\'s were even greater,quality was spot on.All in all,a great place to stay.
Reviewer:Mr Michael Adams | Mon 9th May 2016
Very good weekend in this dog friendly Inn. Rooms are simple, well appointed, spotlessly clean and ours was big enough to have the dog without feeling cramped.Bonus is undoubtedly the restaurant which is not Pub Grub but has a menu worthy of restaurant- using local produce the presentation and quality was super. I had only one course but the duck was cooked to perfection and my husband agreed that his starter and main were equally delicious.Would certainly stay there again as it also is a great starting point for touring the Lakes in any direction.

We have just returned from a three night stay over the May day bank holiday.The Troutbeck Inn has been a friendly and comfortable base from which we could further explore the beautiful area. We weren\'t sure how things would work with us bringing our dog, but all was fine and there were other people staying with their dogs also.Highlight was the truly fabulous food..compliments to the chef...and lovely comfy bed. One downside though-the shower in our room was very erratic and seemed to have a complete mind of its own, boiling one minute them freezing the next, no matter what the setting.Having said that would definitely return if in the area again.

Warm welcome,friendly staff, amazing food and a fabulous room with a gorgeous view. Faultless stay and we\'ll be going back very soon. It\'s a handy place to stay if you want to travel around the Lake District too. Ten minutes off the M6it\'s so easy to find.

Reviewer:Anna Simms | Sat 2nd Apr 2016
This is the second time I\'ve needed to book a room at the Troubeck Inn for friends or family, since we only have limited space at our home at Southerfell. I have it on good authority that the 5 night stay this Easter was as successful as I hoped it would be. The breakfasts are, I understand, spectacular, the rooms extremely comfortable and well equipped, the bar and dining room excellent and the chef superb. The Troubeck Inn is beautifully and tastefully decorated. It is rather more sophisticated than an ordinary country pub whilst still retaining a cosy, bohemian charm. It is a great credit to the lady owner who is welcoming and friendly and supported by efficient and helpful staff. Troutbeck Inn is a real gem and I can\'t wait to stay there myself one of these days. Thanks to all concerned!!

My wife and I visited the Troutbeck Inn Hotel on Saturday 19th of March 2016, originally on s three for two deal, but I was taken ill having had a small stroke on the Saturday, so we had to leave on the Monday and return home early.The bedroom was large and spacious, the bed comfortable and the greeting and service was first class.The room was equipped with everything you would need for your stay, TV, Hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities, and biscuits.The views from our bedroom window were superb.The very comprehensive English breakfast was well cooked and presented, and very enjoyable, with toast, cereals, soft drinks fruit and Yoghurts available as required, tea and coffee.We booked for an evening meal, and this was without doubt, one of the best meals I had had for a long time.All in all, I can highly recommend the Inn for a holiday.Kind regards,Brian and Valerie Twigg.

We stayed in one of the one bed cottages as they have a dog friendly establishment and were nicely surprised by the size of the place.Not as nicely surprised by the food in the inn which was quite frankly splendid.Location is off the grid (no internet service) but well placed to visit the many local attractions.Thoroughly recommended.
Reviewer:Mr. toby page | Mon 14th Mar 2016
The evening meals we had were very good. Lovely to have food served so hot. The breakfast were the best we have ever had. Overall we had a very comfortable stay. Shower in our room was good but the pressure could have been better in the twin bedroom that our teenage daughters stayed in. Their heating in the room was erratic and if we had been staying another night we would have said something. Heating had come on in the morning so room was warm then. We had to ask for milk in our room for the coffee/tea. Staff could have been a little more friendly. The service on the first night in the restaurant was slow for taking our order:20 minutes. Thereafter service was prompt and efficient. I did get the impression that if you asked, then every effort would be made to make your staypleasant one.

Reviewer:Gerard Loughran | Wed 17th Feb 2016
A most enjoyable 3 night stay at a very competitive winter break price. We appreciated the standard provision of the fan heater to supplement the radiator during a cold period. A supplement of just £5 for our dog for the whole stay in a pet-friendly establishment was excellent value. The meals were excellent with very generous portions of protein! Perhaps the addition of some smaller/lighter main courses to the menu would be appreciated by those staying for multiple nights? Liked situation fairly close to the motorway but with good road links to different parts of the Lakes.
Reviewer:Susan Bowden | Tue 16th Feb 2016
Many thanks to all the Troutbeck Inn for a really lovely relaxing stay. Our room was large enough for two, as was the ensuite. Everything was clean, warm and cosy. Breakfast was also excellent, and a real treat. What really made our stay special was the sublime restaurant menu. We ate there on two evenings. The menu was extensive enough to satisfy any one Everything we had was quality produce. It was beautifully presented, and, more importantly, the taste was delicious! I definitely recommend the pork loin! The staff were efficient and friendly, with nothing too much trouble. Having found this little treasure, we will be returning as soon as we can!

My wife and i stayed here over the weekend of 6th and 7th November 2015. What a find.The staff were fantastic, the service and food were fabulous and I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay. The breakfast is all locally sourced and looks and tastes fantastic. My wife is a vegetarian and although only a limited choice on the main menu, there was another smaller vegetarian menu which contained a good selection. The only negative we could possibly think of was that the lights in the bedroom could be a little brighter. Make up purposes and hair stuff apparently, didn\'t bother me too much as I am extremely follically challenged. Thank you very much for an enjoyable stay. We will definitely be booking here again in the future when we come back.

Troutbeck InnIf you are looking for true Lakeland hospitality and atmosphere look no further than the Troutbeck Hotel. Full of old world charm and comfort. The room my wife and I used, (no 5), was quiet,warm and spotlessly clean. There were all the usual amenities plus a nice selection of toiletries and MUGS, instead of the tiny cups usually found in hotels, and top quality biscuits.The Full English Breakfast is the largest I have ever eaten in any hotel anywheres in the world. The dinner menu is fantastic. A wide choice of starters and desserts. The main courses include beef, pork, chicken, duck and a variety of fish dishes with not a frozen chip in sight. Each dish is a work of art. Truly amazing. I must return to this hotel, if only to work my way through the menu.
Reviewer:Peter Scott | Tue 1st Sep 2015
We searched high &low for somewhere to stay for one night over a bank holiday &most places where asking a ridiculous amount. Then we found the Troutbeck Inn at £85. I genuinely thought it was an error and with breakfast included we snapped up the deal. We couldn\'t believe our luck when we landed, great sized room with a lovely view of the mountains. The staff were very friendly, the bar was fab and our evening meal we booked was divine (book a table as they get very busy). We had a peaceful comfy nights stay and the breakfast was superb, can\'t beat a big full English brekkie! We will definitely be back, love the traditional decor and cosy feel to the place and the location is ideal for many of the surrounding attractions. Highly recommend!

We stayed in \'Little Mel\', the one bedroom cottage behind the inn. Lovely open plan living area with large bedroom above. Had everything needed for a comfortable stay and was very clean and tidy. The bar and restaurant is just a lovely place to sit and eat / drink. Very welcoming and attentive staff without being in your face. The food was just tremendous. Having a 6 month old in tow, we were back reasonably early and ate there most nights. Wonderful fresh produce and hats off to the chef who done it proud. All in all, a cracking place to stay whether your a couple or family. Can\'t really think of a down side, other than our bed was a bit soft but that is just my personal preference with my dodgy back! Will definitely return soon.

Reviewer:Keith McHugh | Mon 10th Aug 2015
The decor is very pleasant and tasteful and a real fire in the bar makes it very cosy.We chose not to eat here but the menu did look very appetising.A wonderful breakfast made up for a miserable nights sleep I\'m afraid. The mattress and pillows were rock hard and lumpy -most uncomfortable, but the room and bathroom were both very clean.We felt that the lady in charge may be losing heart in running the place as although she was not unpleasant, she was not over friendly.

Visited with two grown up children on a last minute break with the dog! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay we had to eat in the bar with having the dog but this suited us fine and we actually preferred it! Food was amazing can\'t remember when we last had anything like it superb and not badly priced for the quality!!! Only gripe was no outside bins for doggy poo bags!!!
Reviewer:Julie Appleton | Wed 5th Aug 2015

Reviewer:Johannes Van Der Werf | Sun 2nd Aug 2015
For the money we paid it was really good with just a few improvements which would make it better , the taps in the kitchen were very fiddly to use and the lack of wifi were the only things but other then that would recommend and would stay again
Reviewer:Melanie Whalley | Sun 2nd Aug 2015
I booked the Troutback Inn on booking.com, it was a very reasonable price and the Inn was very flexible in providing a second single bed in the double room, so my brother and I had our own beds. The Inn was clean and tidy, and we\'d pre-booked for dinner having just done a 17km walk that day - in no mood for going out again!Well, what amazed me was the quality of the food. What appears as a very traditional Inn presented dinner of a standard that you\'d be very happy with in many a top end restaurant. We were extremely impressed and it was the perfect finish to a very long day. Well done Troutbeck Inn!
Reviewer:Ian Colledge | Sat 1st Aug 2015
Nice room, shower great and lovely toiletries.Food was faultless, excellent quality and presented lovely.Cracking breakfast with some lovely tasty sausages.Would stay again when in the area.
Reviewer:Janet Wilson | Sun 26th Jul 2015
A lovely cosy clean one bedroom but spacious cottage. It was close to the main routes for the lakes and benefitted from being across the courtyard from the hotel which served food at a very high standard. Only downside was the smell from the boiler which was discussed with the owner. Would recommend.

An excellent pub with superb food and a nice selection of drinks.I stayed in a single room while C2Cing, and it was very comfortable.There\'s a chicken shed out the back for storing bikes in, which gives it a nice rustic feel.
Reviewer:Mr. Owen Powell | Mon 29th Jun 2015
Hotel originally chosen for a two night stopover on the way back from Aberdeenshire to North Wales being within easy reach of the M6 - so glad we did. Perfect location for exploring the northern/western lakes-clean comfortable room-wonderful food. Would stay again.
Reviewer:Vinden Jones | Sat 27th Jun 2015
we had a lovely stay at the Troutbeck Inn. the food was wonderful, the place was very clean, and extremely peaceful and were nor disturbed by other guests or banging doors. We would return should our travels bring us back to the lakes. just a minor point the food was too rich to eat every night so a \"lite bite\"menu would be good. That\'s just a minor point from a wonderful stay ... Thank You.
Reviewer:Richard Kemp | Wed 24th Jun 2015
My wife and I stayed locally in 2014 so, knew of the Troutbeck Inn. Whe I decided to surprise my wife with a short, well earned break, this seemed to be the obvious choice! Fortunately, I was right! A great room, excellent breakfast and fantastic evening choices too. A great base away from the main hustle and bustle of the Lakes with a great chec and great host. All of the staf are friendly. Don\'t forget that, for the most part, English might not be their first language so, you will have to make allowances for that. An unreserved five star reccommendation.
Reviewer:STEFAN PIASECKI | Tue 23rd Jun 2015
Convenient location near Ullswater and on A66 for elsewhere. Plenty of car parking, warm, clean and good sized room (we had room 1). Dinner menu offered a great range for us but don\'t come here to eat if your preference is burgers, pies, sausages or fish and chips. Places nearby do them! 2 real ales available, log fire and a country like ambiance. No digital locks and car park tokens here.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Troutbeck with our lurcher, Ozzy. The room was large enough to fit in his crate and of a high quality. The location of the inn was perfect, close to Aira Force and Ullswater for beautiful walks and Penrith if you need to go into town. We ate 3 evening meals in the inn, where the staff were very accommodating, sitting us in the bar where the dog could stay with us. The food was delicious, of restaurant quality.

Reviewer:Natalie Wellstood | Tue 26th May 2015
We stayed in the 1 bedroom cottage at the Troutbeck Inn over the Bank Holiday Weekend.Very spacious and charming self catering accommodation. The Inn itself was lovely as were the owner &staff. Although we self catered for a couple of days we ate in the restaurant for dinner on Sunday and breakfast on Monday and really enjoyed it. Food was superb. We would not hesitate to visit again perhaps for a longer stay to further explore a beautiful area.
Reviewer:Mrs. Paula Bates | Tue 26th May 2015
We stayed 2 nights bed and breakfast. It was really good all round. Breakfast was extremely fresh and good ingredients used. The room was a large family ensuite which looked out on the fells. We had complementary items in the shower room and tea and coffee making facilities (although no fresh milk. However, I did get a small jug from the helpful receptionist when I asked) can\'t really fault the place.Would go back.

The room we booked was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The restaurant served a varied menu and the quality of the food was exceptional on all the nights we dined. The bar was a comfortable area to enjoy a drink before or after the evening meal. The hosts and staff were very friendly and attentive and we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Troutbeck Inn to anyone looking for fine accommodation in this area.
Reviewer:Nigel Burnham | Thu 7th May 2015

Great location for the hills, very accessible too. The ladyrunning the place was very efficient, friendly and hard-working and made sure we had everything we needed.

Breakfast again was huge and overall the price we paid makes this place extremely good value for money. Would not hesitate to stay here again, really pleased with our stay.

Reviewer:Trevor Nisbet | Sun 26th Apr 2015
Chose this accomodation as it was near to our planned walks - Blencathra, Skiddaw and Helvelyn. Its in a great spot just off the A66 and offers great value for money. We stayed for 2 nights on a B&B basis and dined on the first night in the restaurant. The evening meal was superb and from a menu with some other very tempting starters/mains and desserts. The breakfast choices are fairly standard with the cooked option nicely prepared. The restaurant and bar are lovely relaxing areas with a very homely open log fire. Our room was a good size (standard double) clean,nicely decorated with a comfy bed and decent shower. All in all a very nice place to stay with very friendly staff to compliment it and to make our stay enjoyable. We would definately stay again.
Reviewer:Paul Mansfield | Mon 20th Apr 2015
We had a delightful visit with a lovely spacious room, excellent food and service and a very warm welcome for our dog. I\'d recommend this hotel to anyone especially dog owners!
Reviewer:Mrs. Barbara Willis | Sun 19th Apr 2015
We decided on our stay at Troutbeck due to the good reviews we read. In particular, it was dog friendly, and you could eat your breakfast and meals in the bar area, alongside your dogs. There is a small area of grass where dogs can be taken for early morning and late evening toilet calls, a short distance down the road there is a bit larger area with a brook nearby. We were in a spacious double room, lovely view to the fells, plenty of storage, small selection of toiletries, however for us, the bed was a bit uncomfortable, but this may not be the same for other guests. The service from staff was quick and friendly. There is a good dinner menu, with a good range of choices. Breakfasts were lovely, served hot and very enjoyable. The Inn, although just a hamlet, has good access to all main routes to the Lakes. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
Reviewer:Christine Collier | Sat 18th Apr 2015
From the moment we walked in the door we felt at ease and looked after. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts amazing and the dinners are outstandingly prepared and tasty.

Lovely settings in a great location. The views are amazing and set in a peaceful location with easy access to M6 and the rest of the Lake District.The staff where very friendly and helpful.We didn\'t eat in the restaurant as we decided to eat out in Keswick but we did have a couple of drinks in bar(wow and I thought london prices where high for drinks nearly £5 for a pint of Paronie) . We did have breakfast in the bar in the morning as we had dog with us and dogs are not aloud in restaurant (understandably). Full English is is a must and cooked very well.The room was a good size we had a large double room with own bathroom. Only down side was the bed and pillows, pillows where very hard along with the bed but hay some people like hard beds some people like soft so can\'t please everyone.All in all a very good stay and great if you have your dog with you as there just as welcome
Reviewer:Philip Hughes | Wed 8th Apr 2015
Had booked the larger room as we like a large bed - very comfortable, clean and plenty of tea, coffee etc.Warning - only order the full breakfast if you have a very big appetite - absolutely delicious and obviously freshly cooked (not under hot lights)!All in all - excellent and would highly recommend.Will most definitely stay again.

Once again we have just arrived home from a lovely stay at Blencathra Cottage at the Troutbeck Inn. The cottage is comfy and cosy and with both bedrooms en-suite there is no fighting for the bathroom. We enjoyed some delicious meals at the Inn, never tasted better anywhere else, the menu is superb. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it\'s great just to walk across the courtyard back to the cottage so no one has to forgo a drink to enjoy the meals. Altogether a super relaxing break away.

We had to reduce the quantity of breakfast supplied and the quality was exceptional.The food available on the evening menu was also exceptional and the presentation such that i was compelled to take photos.We have already booked a further break for our anniversary in Feb. This must speak for itself regarding our opinion of the Inn and its management .

Perfectly situated for the Motorway, Rheged and Ullswater, I couldn\'t fault the service, accommodation or food, although the availability of a snack rather than having only the dinner menu available to me on the Friday evening would have been welcome, particularly as a resident guest. Thank you.

An excellent Inn for visits to the Lake District, especially to be near to Ullswater and Helvelyan. Comfortable rooms with all amenities, good car, parking.However, the star of the Inn is the Chef who produces fabulous food at good prices. These are all served by excellent and friendly staff.The owner is there to greet you and she looks after your needs admirably. ThIs was our 2nd visit for our Wedding Anniversary and I hope to repeat it again next year.

We booked the Troutbeck Inn with only about two weeks notice and the cost seemed very reasonable. We had some concern in regard to how close to the A65 the Inn is and wondered how \'picturesque\' such a location would be. However, such concerns were unfounded and the hotel is in a beautiful location, with great views and as a bonus, it\'s really easy to get to on a busy Friday evening.The Inn itself is very hospitable, with friendly staff, a bar with a good selection of real ales and great hygiene standards.We stopped for two nights and had breakfast both days and ate in the restaurant on Saturday evening. The food was all outstanding!

We have recently returned from a weekend break with our 7 yr old granddaugher.We have known the hotelfor over 40yrs but this is our 1st residential stay.We had a fabulous break.Loved the cottage and will certainly return.Our granddaughter loved the upside down layout.The loo brush and can opener need replacing.The only downside for us was that check in is from 2 .We arrived just before 3 and had to wait til nearly 3.30 for the key.We ordered tea as we had to wait and felt this should have been complimentary in the circumstances.Just a small point but we felt it worth mentioning.

Reviewer:Trevor Duffield | Mon 21st Apr 2014
We visited the Troutbeck as a couple, with our two year old son, and three friends. We noted:* The rooms were clean and tidy.* The bar and restaurant areas were nicely decorated.* One of the bar rooms had a lovely open fire and some leather chairs, where we consumed plenty of wine &ale.* The food was superb;the type of high quality cuisine one finds in a smart London restaurant, without the price tag. Of course, the price wasn't 'bargain basement', but the quality of food made the meals feel like a bargain.* The breakfasts were generous and delicious, leaving us ready for walking &cycling.* We were particularly pleased that our son was very well looked after, with freshly cooked food provided at a very reasonable price.By far the most desirable aspect of the Troutbeck is the food. To find such great food in a hotel/b&b is quite rare, and whilst so many other places serve mass produced adequate food, the Troutbeck was streets ahead.The only negative I could possibly find was the lack of decent wireless Internet in the bar/restaurant area. It is available, but the signal is weak. But it's such a minor problem, and so easily fixed (a powerline adapter and a wireless repeater) that it doesn't dent the five star rating.
Reviewer:Mr. John Baker | Mon 21st Apr 2014
Food and accommodation at the Troutbeck are very good, the breakfasts are wholesome and the dinner menu is excellent;the food is well presented, served in a timely manner and on warm plates. The room was comfortable. The shower room was a little small but adequate. One small point is that the heating in the room could not be adjusted and we found that it became a bit too cosy during the night(personal taste).

My wife &I had a 2 night stay at the Troutbeck Inn. We found it very peacefull and the food was excellent. We don't often stay in hotels as we have a rescue dog which we don't wish to kennel during days away so we try to use our caravan as much as possible. However, with the warnings of the approaching storm during while we would be away, we decided to book dog friendly accommodation. It was so successful that we have decided to do it more often. Do try the Troutbeck if you want to take your dog walking in the Lake District (being within easy access of most attractions and would like a more intermit style of accommodation.

Reviewer:Mrs. Susan Ritson | Wed 23rd Oct 2013
Stayed 2 nights with our 4yo daughter and for the first time we brought along our dog. Always been worried about pet friendly places but this was spotless. Food was fabulous on both nights and they had the best beer (Jennings Cumberland)i have tasted in years. Lovely staff and much more spacious all around than it appears on the webiste. Only down side was the ancient storage heater in the room, which was impossible to control and meant it was a little too warm in there throughout. But we would definitely go back, instantly felt like our home in the Lakes

tit is very difficult to know what you are getting when you book rooms online. This time it was a most rewarding experience The inn is all you could wish for- comfortable rooms, quiet, fantastic food(the breakfast keeps you going all day!)good selection of local real ales and very friendly staff. I will definitely return.

Having visited before we once again found the cottage (which we had kindly been offered in place of a smaller cottage due to our change in date needs) to be in a beautiful location, peaceful and prefect for our needs. Lovely place to stay and feels like a home from home. Always want to stay and never fun to come home. Thanks
Reviewer:Mr. DarrenKing | Sun 20th Oct 2013
Just got home from 3 nights at the Troutbeck Inn and what a treat it was, From the outside it just looks like another roadside lakeland pub but inside it has a special atmosphere created with log fires, low lighting background music and candles. The meals here are superb and the price reflects that so don't expect scampi, pie and chips, Gammon etc and no childrens menu.The staff and owner are very helpful and the service is efficient and stressless. They never took more bookings than they could handle so the service was always excellent.The restaurant was busy every night with non residents coming from the local area who obviously know where the good food is. We reserved a table each morning before leaving.Breakfast was also good as you would expect and the room was a good size and kept clean and tidy.There is no TV in the lounge, no pool table and no slot machines, it was heaven.We will be back soon

Reviewer:Stephen Armstrong | Thu 10th Oct 2013
had a great stay here just right to get away from it all. There are no views of the surrounding area which would have been nice when weather is wet and staying in reading, the main door needs a blind on it as when you go from bathroom to bedroom you have to go past the window of the door.otherwise it was an excelent stay where all the litle extras had been thought of.

We have just returned from a week staying at the Troutbeck Inn holiday cottage, 'Little Mel'. A sweet, smart and unique cottage which felt like home from home. Very relaxing and a stones throw from the beautiful Ullswater lake,quiet and among beautiful scenery. The Troutbeck Inn next door was cosy and tastefully furbished with a welcoming log fire in the evening. Excellent food, extensive menu, first class service. Highly recommend a stay there in the cottages or th Inn. Lovely holiday.

We had dinner in the comfortable restaurant on the 1st night and everyone agreed that dinner was of very high quality and excellent value. The breakfast was also delicious.We may not stay there again as there is a great variety of accommodation in the area but we would certainly eat there again.

We were delighted with our whole experience at the Troutbeck Inn. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with ample tea making supplies,shower gels etc.The owners have created a very gentile ambience, with soft lights, and the correct choice of music and volume.The food and preparation of it ,was of a high standard, and there was a large choice ,possibly a few more vegetarian options would be appreciated. Breakfasts were superb, and service prompt and friendly. We would have eaten in twice more, but were unable to be specific with timings, so went elsewhere. Maybe a little more flexibility for guests would be helpful,after all, we come to the lakes to get away from clocks ! Over all ,we enjoyed our stay, and would certainly come again.

Stayed here one night, were made to feel welcome. Had a superb room. Although the Inn was quiet it filled up for dinner, and that was no surprise given the excellence of the food and a good wine list.

The Inn was ideally located not to far from Penrith town centre and you didnt have to travel to far to see a lot of Penrith's visitor attractions.

Had a lovely long weekend staying in Little Mell cottage with one dog. The location is fantastic, ideally situated between Keswick and Penrith for access to shops and pubs but the cottage is in a quiet, rusual location so you can really get away from it all. Ullswater Lake is a short drive with plenty of good walks and breathtaking views. The cottage was warm and comfortable which made it hard to leave and explore the area. Would highly recommend this as a base for a great holiday in the Lake District.
Reviewer:Holly Rees | Tue 23rd Apr 2013
Booked last minute (actually on same day as arrival) and wasn't sure what to expect. Shouldn't have worried. Pleasant room with nice clean bed, tv and very pleasant en-suite. Dinner was better than expected and easily up to gourmet pub level. Reasonably priced including a nice Prosecco at less than £18 a bottle. Altogether fine for a one or two night stay and very handy for the main A66 without being noisy at all.

As a lone female travelling around the country for business, it was a pleasure to stay at the Troutbeck Inn.

My wife and I enjoyed and unseasonable mild weekend in January at the Troutbeck Inn. We stayed in the 1-Bed Cottage and of the three nights we ate at the Inn twice. The food was very good and given the fresh ingredients was suitably priced. Our host was friendly and accommodating, I would struggle to fault the place. The location is quietly set back from the road that links Penrith to Keswick and lays about 4 miles equidistant from both towns which enabled us to enjoy the peace of isolation without being too remote.

(the venison main course was better than the one I was served in a Michelin starred restaurant). It was an ideal winter retreat with lovely log fires and a cosy feel, but would also make an ideal centre for a summer trip to explore the lakes.

Lovely holiday at Little Mell with great walking.Facilities as usual are spot on my only concern is the cooker rings which are very slow and do not heat up very well - over an hour to boil cabbage!We stayed at Little Mell last year and the rings were not a problem.Other than that fantastic holiday, lovely area and pub hosts great.Look forward to coming again.

Yet again another fabulous stay, breakfast is outstanding and so are the evening meals, wish I had half the chefs talent. Very warm and friendly hosts. Thank you

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at The Troutbeck Inn in one of the holiday cottage. The accomodation is clean and comfortable and we found the mid week deal exceptionally well-priced. We ate once in the bar and the food is delicious. A great base for North and West Lakes we will be returning next year.

Excellent stay. Very comfortable. Beautiful property. Food ..... tremendous. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Thanks very much.
Reviewer:Mr. Lloyd Roberts | Tue 6th Nov 2012
We have stayed at The Troutbeck several times, and especially enjoy the warm friendly environement in the bar and lounge.Playing cribbage in front of the log fire with a pint of Jennings ale is my idea of heaven.The food is not only of excellent quality, but imaginatively presented.We shall be back.

Reviewer:Jenny Needham | Tue 30th Oct 2012
We arrived at around 2pm and where shown to our room, the rooms and the rest of the inn are extremely clean lots of different toiletries provided in the lovely en suit bathroom. The location is perfect as you are in a spot ideal for getting to many locations in the Lakes. The food in the restaurant is outstanding my husband had the fillet stake both nights as it was the best stake he had ever had. The place is small and does get full so booking for dinner in advance is advised. Priced very reasonable and drinks also are reasonable. Not many staff so you can be waiting a little while to get served at the bar in busy times. The young girl on the bar seemed new and didn't speak much English but she was doing very well and was so so nice so we didn't mind waiting. We would definately re visit and hope to stay in one of the cottages next time with our daughter. All round lovely getaway.

The Saddleback Cottage was fantastic and very cosy. The staff were very friendly and the food was first-class:both in terms of quality and quantity. The menu was superb and my wife and I managed to eat different things on each of the three nights that we stayed.Ideal location for exploring the Northern Lakes especially Ullswater.Cannot recommend the Troutbeck Inn highly enough.

Blencathra cottage was fab - very warm and well equipped and comfortable beds.It was so nice to stay somewhere that was so clean and very good in all respects. If I can suggest a couple of things - a few leaflets about local walks would be good and a corkscrew with wings to make it easier !I will definitely recommend to friends and will stay again when next visiting the northern lakes. Thank you very much for a splendid stay.

Once again we have had a very enjoyable stay at the Troutbeck in one of their cottages. We arrived to torrential rain and were thrilled to find that the cottage was warm and cosy. The cottage is fairly well equipped and the beds comfy. Our cottage had 2 ensuites which was great. We had 2 superb meals in the Inn and would recommend a meal there to anyone in the area.The staff are friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back. I would rate it 5stars for the meal and 4stars for the cottage.

Reviewer:D G Pyatt | Mon 10th Sep 2012
Having never been to the lake district this was a fantastic first holiday. Located ideally between Keswick and Penrith Little Mell is a beautiful place to stay. The cottage was large and elegantly decorated. It had everything you would possibly need for self catering and the added bonus of towels and bedding provided. The Troutbeck Inn is lovely and having eaten there the food is out of this world. The whole experience added to our holiday and the location meant that we were able to explore so much of the lake district, would certainly recommend and would definitely stay again.
Reviewer:Emily Barnes | Mon 10th Sep 2012

Reviewer:Rajdeep Kumar | Fri 24th Aug 2012
We had a wonderful 4-night stay at the Troutbeck Inn. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, although we thought the small en-suite was a bit tired and dated. The food, both breakfast and dinner, was both plentiful and delicious, served by a very efficient and friendly staff. Located in a small hamlet, we found it generally quiet and restful, with ample parking and in an ideal location for our short vacation. At excellent value for money, we would have no hesitation recommending the Troutbeck Inn and hope we can find a reason to visit again.
Reviewer:Ian James | Wed 22nd Aug 2012

We enjoyed our stay, the room was very comfortable and clean. The food served for breakfasts and evening meal excellent. A suggestion from us to add a few simpler options to the evening meal menu would add to the choice as people do sometimes require a simpler meal.The staff were very professional in their work and helpful.
Reviewer:Christine Kelly | Sat 28th Jul 2012
Although we couldn't in all honesty describe ourselves as young, we are definitely not mature:another category is needed!!! Seriously, the Troutbeck Inn is well situated for exploring the Northern end of the Lake District, the room was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. If you choose to dine there, the menu was varied and presented very well. Would recommend staying here for a short break.
Reviewer:Mr. Trevor Jones | Thu 26th Jul 2012
We spent just one night staying at the Troutbeck Inn on the way to Scotland with our dog.We were very pleased thatBentley (the dog) was able to join us for dinner and breakfast in the bar . Both meals were absolutely delicious.
Reviewer:Mrs. Alison Nickells | Thu 26th Jul 2012
The owner was very welcoming and friendly.How ever I was slightly disappointed by the fact there was no where for the children or dog to be outside of the property, given that we had booked as a family with a dog;you are either in the cottage or in the car,as outside the cottage was car parking for the three cottages.Perhaps I should have looked at the details more closely.I would have also liked a dishwasher and a washing machine as part of the facilities, although use of the owner's washing machine was an option.
Reviewer:Alyson Curry | Wed 25th Jul 2012
Our second stay and just as good as our first.

We stayed at the Troutbeck Inn for two nights in June. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Our room was tastfully decorated and comfortable (eventhough it is apparently one of their smaller rooms, it was big enough to comforatbly fit our travel cot). The hotel has a boutique feel to it and has extremely helpful and friendly staff. We had one evening meal and it was one of the best meals we have had in a long time, large portions of high quality top end restuarant standard. The open fire, superb location, friendly staff and delicious food turned a couple of rainy days in june into a memorable break. Thank you Rowan.

We booked the Troutbeck Inn as it was convenient for Penrith and accepted dogs. We stayed for 3 nights and had such a lovely time that we didn't want to leave. The staff were very attentive, the food was out of this world and the bedroom was so much more than I expected as we'd booked in with a dog. We were allowed to eat our evening meal and breakfast in the bar as we had our dog with us and the food was always fresh, hot and extremely tasty. After 3 nights we stll hadn't got round to sampling all of the main courses!The hotel is only a 10 min drive away from Ullswater and altough we were there in March I can imagine how busy the area around the lake gets so it's good to be just out of the manic traffic.We are already planning a return trip this year and we are looking to stop off next year on our way up to Edinburgh.

My wife and I stayed at The Troutbeck as a stop over, following a holiday in the highlands, booking initially because of the convenient location to the M6. instead of being 'just a stopover' the comfortable room, beautiful location and fantastic food - it really is good - extended the holiday a further day! We will definately stay again, hopefully for longer next time.

We stayed as a married couple and were very impressed. The room was spotless and the en suite was gleaming. The meal in the evening was superb - recommend you book your table in advance.Would love to stay again in the future
Reviewer:Mrs. Catherine Hinson | Mon 27th Feb 2012
Warm friendly welcome on arrival. Room was clean and comfortable. En-suite was equally clean. Meals were excellent as was the bar service. Our movements within the Inn were restricted due to us taking our dog, which was to be expected. We were all made to feel extremely welcome. This was not our first visit, and we hope to make many more.
Reviewer:David Tattersall | Wed 22nd Feb 2012
We took a mid-week 'winter warmer' break in the cottage apartment 'Blencathra' It was everything we needed. Reasonably spacious, spotlessly clean and warm. The living areas are on the first floor with bedrooms beneath. This gave really enjoyable views from the living area to the fells in the distance and Blencathra nearby. The location is good as it is just off the A66 Penrith to Keswick road. There are also numerous small country lanes for a quieter drive. Walking in the area has endless possibilities. The Troutbeck Inn itself which is seconds away from the apartment is very pleasant and is very atmospheric. The food was an excellent standard but there were no options for main courses less than £14, so whilst very good value, you had to be prepared for quite an outlay if eating there in a family group. Overall - very good and highly recommended. We will definitely return.
Reviewer:Lesley Tracy | Tue 21st Feb 2012
I found the Troutbeck welcoming, really nice atmosphere, good attention to detail. I stayed in a lovely room and menu was excellent, as was the breakfast. Only sorry I couldn't stay longer. Would definately book again.

Reviewer:Dale Vicker | Tue 10th Jan 2012
We stayed in the one bedroom cottage for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The cottage was very comfortable and dog friendly, which was a must for us as we have a Wolfhound and a small terrier.The owner was very friendly and quite apologetic that the weather was at times awful, but this did not hinder us in anyway, if you come to the Lakes you must be ready for rain!!!We had several meals which we ordered at the pub and had delivered to our door, these were all delicious and again we thoroughly enjoyed them.I would recommend this cottage to anyone and we shall very definately stay here again when we return to this beautiful part of the world.

The accommodation and food was very good.We had a three course meal, each course was well cooked and presented.The prawns were beautifully tender and HUGE.One small point we weren't happy with.Room 2 was directly across the road from a bungalow, the windows of which looked straight in to our room.A venitian blind or net of some sort would solve this problem.We didn't want to close the curtain on the view, but for the sake of privacy it was necessary.

We very much enjoyed our 3 night stay at Troutbeck.The food was excellent and the service friendly, courteous and swift.Our room was comfortable with good facilities, but the only drawback was that there was limited hot water supply in the evenings.Troutbeck proved to be the perfect centre for exploring the beautiful surrounding area.

We booked the Troutbeck Inn from a search online for dog friendly hotels as we wanted to break our journey from Scotland in Cumbria. The inn was warm and friendly, good room which had comfy bed , was quiet and had everything we needed. Shower was a bit pathetic but this may be water pressure problem. We had a meal at the Inn in the evening which was very good, great menu but quite expensive but the ambiance was good and seems popular with locals as well as guests. Breakfast was lovely, great choice of hot and cold food, perfectly cooked. All in all a great place to stay.
Reviewer:J Taylor | Sun 21st Aug 2011

The Troutbeck Inn exceeded our expectations in every way. Attentive and helpful staff, an excellent dining experience for three evening meals from an extensive menu with high quality and fresh ingredients and a very comfortable large en suite twin double room, made our stay very enjoyable. We were even offered facilities to dry our walking gear and remove excess mud from the fells on a wet and windy stay. We would highly recommend a stay at the Troutbeck Inn. We will be going again soon! 5 Stars
Reviewer:Dr. ChrisGillespie | Fri 12th Aug 2011
A great place to stay .very good service and an excellent restaurant serving great food.I stayed in the single room which is fine. I will certainly stay again if the opportunity arises - one point would be that for business travellers the breakfast start time of 8.30 is too late to be able to use.
Reviewer:Miss. Juliette Halliday | Wed 10th Aug 2011
We visited the Troutbeck Inn for 2 nights, was a little unsure whether we would hear the busy road behind the hotel, but were very pleased to find you couldn't hear it at all. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and the views were glorious from the bedroom windows. The bar and restaurant areas were cosy and welcoming with a lovely ambience which included candles on all the tables. The food was the best part of the stay, the evening meals in the restaurant were excellent quality not your average pub grub!! The cooked breakfast was really filling with top quality sausages and bacon, not like some places. The staff were very friendly and attentive, overall we would certainly recommend staying here and would go again
Reviewer:Mrs. Carol Baron | Sat 6th Aug 2011

Reviewer:Mrs. Mary Donaldson | Wed 3rd Aug 2011
We found the Troutbeck very welcoming and hospitable. It was extremely good that dogs are allowed in the bar area.We found the room bright and clean with lovely views. The only down point was a slight smell of drains in the bathroom and a slight leak of water from the base of the shower.That did not deter from the lovely stay and the biscuits and tissues put in the room were a pleasing touch.The bed was very comfortable.
Reviewer:Miss. Susan Watson | Tue 2nd Aug 2011
Spent a lovely 8 days staying in the Saddleback Cottage.Very relaxing with fantastic views from the upstairs lounge.No problem at all with having our 2 border collies indoors with us which made things a whole lot easier. Dined at the Inn 6 nights out of the 8 and the food was fantastic. The portions were very generous and well presented.As a veggie, there was only the 1 choice on the menu but hey no problem, the chef immediately came up with a whole list of options for me, all of which were superb.The Inn does get very very busy at the weekend so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.What would I have liked to have taken home from the lake district? Easily, the chef from the Troutbeck! Hope to visit again some time in the future.
Reviewer:Tom & Margaret Quinn | Fri 29th Jul 2011
This is a very welcoming and comfortable inn which is well placed for visiting both the Lakes and the Dales.The bar and restaurant areas are very stylishly finished, with log-burning fires (even in summer!).The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet, with modern shower, TV and tea/coffee making facilities and a pleasant south view to the Lake District.I would recommend the Troutbeck Inn most highly and look forward to a future visit.

Reviewer:Mr. Mathew Rimmington | Sun 26th Jun 2011
The Inn is decorated and furnished in keeping with the age and nature of the building without being old-fashioned or dated. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and clean. The food in the restaurant is superb. The hearty breakfast set us up for the day and our evening meal was delicious.The only problem we had was that the tea/coffee tray was on top of the combination dresser/wardrobe which meant that pouring boiling water was difficult and a bit risky, so we had to move the kettle to the bedside table.The owner and staff are pleasant and helpful, but maybe the barman, whilst very polite, could smile a bit more! -especially when first welcoming guests.
Reviewer:Mrs. Dorothy Carrington | Thu 23rd Jun 2011
We stayed one night and were really taken with this place. We had duck pate with date and armangnac chutney and chicken waldorf to start - both delicious.We then both had the fillet of beef on a bed of roasted vegetables and have to say the steak was one of the tastiest we have had and cooked to perfection.Just sorry the Inn is located so far away from our home, else we would eat here regularly.However we would certainly like to stay again when travelling south.

Reviewer:Sam Beale | Tue 14th Jun 2011
An excellent stay in a comfortable cottage. It was good to stay in a place that welcomes dogs!We enjoy cooking so our only minor quibble was the apparent lack of some kitchen equipment (eg scales), though we maybe just didn't look hard enough.For dog owners... Walking from the cottage is a bit limited (along roads mostly) but a mile or so along the road to Ullswater, you can walk dogs in the Forestry area (entrance just beyond the 2nd caravan site).
Reviewer:Ms Heather Alexander | Tue 7th Jun 2011
Lovely old style Inn which had good rooms with staff that are welcoming but not friendly. Bathroom door not closing and a noisy toilet was an annoyance but the room facilities and good bed compensated for it. Food great but car parking limited - got post it note on arrival by neighbour for parking on their private drive - not signed as such!Would stay again as all said and done as it was good value for money.

We had a most enjoyable stay, smart, comfortable and just the ticket for walkers doing the Coast to Coast. Whilst it involved a fair bit of driving to position our cars at the start and end of walks, the location was very good. The Food was much enjoyed along with the Jennings real ales.If we were to be picky we would say the showers could do with being a bit more vigorous and a few more smiles from the otherwise helpful and polite staff would have added a little extra to the visit. I certainly plan on returning some time in the future. The Sea bass was amazing and the Pork Loin and the Pasta..............

Very nice cottage, very spacious...bed really comfortable!! The food was excellent!!We had a bit of a problem with the water...the main cause, we believe, was the boiler. The water was hot for a few seconds and then cold ...and so on. Staff very nice, helpful and friendly! Acted immediately when we complained about the water.If it was not for the water I would have definitely rate this with 5 starts!!!

Stayed in 2 bed cottage with 2 dogs. Plenty of room for us all in the cottage. Welcome pack was far more than expected, tea, coffee, milk, biscuits. Excellent food best we have had for this type of break. Very good location for all of the northern lakes. We recommend and will be returning.

Had a lovely three night stay.The food here is out of this world.Each meal we had was hot, fantastically tasty and a very pleasing amount. We stayed here with our dog as well.The Inn is ideally situated and we had several good walks. The double room was more than adequate.The only negative thing to say is that it would have been nice to have an open fire in the bar area (there is one in the restarant but we were unable to sit there due to having a dog). Some low music would help the atmostphere and the shower needs updating.Would recommend this Inn, especially for the outstanding food.

Had a lovely night stopping at the hotel whilst the rest of the family stayed in one of the cottages as they were staying longer.The room was very nice but there were a couple of things that could be improved on, there was no heating in the en-suite and the shower wasn't brilliant, however, this did not in any way spoil our stay as there was an extra heater in the room and I was able to dodge from under the shower when the water went cold!! If you like good food can certainly recommend it, it was fabulous,both breakfast and dinner. The staff were lovely and the log fire in the bar was wonderful, very comforting and cosy. Keswick isn't far and well worth a visit. Well worth a stay and will definitely go again.
