Troutbeck valley lies mid-way between the towns of Windermere and Ambleside. It is cradled by the slopes of Wansfell and Applethwaite Common. It follows the Trout Beck (river) all the way down to the shores of Lake Windermere. Most of this area is grazing farmland and woods along the valley bottom. A few scattered farms, cottages, larger houses, and the village of Troutbeck itself. Almost every building in the Troutbeck valley is over 100 years old, and many are over 300 years old. The whole Troutbeck valley lies within the Lake District National Park. Most of the village is a Conservation Area and there are many Listed and National Trust owned buildings.
The peaks of Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick and Thornthwaite Crag rise steeply to dominate the head of the valley. The river, Trout Beck runs through woods and farmland to plunge through steep ravines just before entering Lake Windermere at the foot of the valley.
The village of Troutbeck itself is really a collection of tiny hamlets strung out for about one and a half miles along the old valley road. It is a truly unique village, in an unspoilt valley setting.
Popular with tourists, Troutbeck has no official car parks, many visitors arrive on foot via its network of footpaths and bridleways. Troutbeck valley has seven hotels, one Youth Hostel, a National Trust Property at Townend, and Limefitt Park.
