Troutbeck Head Experience Freedom Glamping: Ramp and outdoor dining area of the universally accessible glamping pod

General

  • Glamping accommodation at a scenic Lake District park
  • A 10-minute drive to Ullswater; outdoor activity centre next door
  • Comfy units with ensuite bathroom, heating and kitchen facilities

Troutbeck Head Experience Freedom Glamping is a smart family-friendly Cumbria glampsite in the Lake District National Park, about 20 minutes’ drive from Penrith and 10 minutes from the shoreline of Ullswater.

This is a rather lovely spot for those seeking scenic walks – it’s in a pretty valley, surrounded by classic North Lakeland countryside and with easy access to top spots like Ambleside, Grasmere and Windermere. To get the best of the local views, the team on site recommend a walk from Howtown to Glenridding, a lake cruise on Ullswater and a drive over the dramatic Kirkstone Pass to gaze up at the national park’s peaks.

Not that you have to stray very far to start soaking up the scenery – stay on site and you’ll have views towards Blencathra and the Great Mell Fell, and you can have a little stroll by Trout Beck, which runs alongside one side of the site. Need a bit more activity to keep energetic types happy? Head next door to Rookin House Farm Centre for horse riding, archery, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and other outdoorsy antics.

Whether you’ve picked a relaxing day or an action-packed one, a comfy stay awaits back at the site, where all accommodation has heating, beds made up, an ensuite bathroom and space to relax outdoors. Kitchen facilities are provided for each one too, so pick up supplies in Penrith or Keswick (15 minutes’ drive). The nearest pub is a couple of miles away if you fancy an evening out.

This site is a member of Caravan and Motorhome Club group.
