Wansfell View, Troutbeck, Lake District
Although situated on the Limefitt Holiday Park, this lovely lodge is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, making it feel remote, but with all of the on-site benefits of the holiday park close at hand.
The Wansfell View was named after Wansfell Pike, the summit of which can be viewed from the balcony at the front of the lodge. The decked balcony area has a barbecue, comfortable patio seating and a sunken hot tub, both perfect spots for quietly admiring the Lake District scenery all around.
The holiday park has a useful shop and pub on-site and plenty of open space for guests to explore. There is an area of fields and woodland specifically set aside for dog walkers, as well as an outdoor games area, a safe, bark-surfaced children’s adventure play enclosure and a pony trekking centre.
For variation, there are two more traditional country pubs, both serving local ales and home-cooked food within a few minutes walk of the lodge. These can be reached on foot by quiet footpaths leading straight from the lodge and out into open country.

Wansfell View Surrounding Area
The nearest village is Troutbeck which is just over half a mile away and is an easy walk from the lodge along the edge of the stream that runs the whole way across the bottom of the holiday park.
Energetic visitors will be drawn to surmount Scaffell Pike, the highest mountain in England, which lies between the villages of Eskdale and Wasdale.
For the slightly less active, Lake Windermere offers less-challenging activities such as sightseeing cruises, a boat trip to the Lakeside Aquarium or a quiet stroll around the Steamboat Museum.
