Troutbeck Head Caravan Club Site

Post by CC on Thu May 03, 2012 1:19 pm

Was looking at caravan club sites to visit last night and stumbled across this one which has a lovely outlook, have any forum members used the site? and if so is the surrounding view really as attractive as the photo suggests.. it looks great in the pic and one on our short list!



Troutbeck, Penrith, Cumbria

I haven't used that site but I have walked in that area. Yes! the surrounding view is as good if not better than the photo shows (on a clear day)

The site was in the clouds when I was there a few years back. Must go back there and try to hit the fine weather before my back legs go.

Hi CC
We stopped for a couple of nights back in 2006, it was very busy !!! Very popular with families, Fully serviced pitches if you need one, wee shop and great showers,WC 's etc.
Lots of walks, scenery stunning,can be very cold at this time of the year, take hotties to bed.
Enjoy your trip.

IMHO, the photo doesn't do the outlook justice. The mountains are really much closer, and all around. And it doesn't show my favourite pub in all the world, but that is a few miles west, in Threlkeld. The Horse & Farrier if you get the time... Great beer and fabulous food.

Thanks for all the reassuring feedback everyone, definitely one on our list to visit soon...

Just been looking at nearby Dockray Meadow which also looks very attractive content

Mmmm.

And that one too is within easy reach of the Horse and Farrier up! .

It's a lovely area, slightly off the "honeypot" routes, with superb walking and cycling (mountain biking) opportunities.
