A real Lakeland hidden treasure set in the beautiful village of Troutbeck, this 17thC solid stone and slate house sits imposingly on the hillside, its huge chimneys typical of the area. The Brownes lived here for generations, a wealthy, hardworking family, who loved wood carving, books and furniture, and collected them in this homely place. See fascinating kitchen and domestic tools, along with period clothing and the cosy servants' rooms. Our children's trail brings it all to life.
A real fire in the 'down house' , the original kitchen most days helps makes this a 'must do' visit when in the Lake District.
Adult £4.90, children £2.45, family £12.25. Free admission for National Trust members and under 5yrs.
