We wanted a day out somewhere and found Townend. A quent little building near Troutbeck. We were too late for the guided tour, but as we went in we were greeted by a friendly woman who explained some of the history of the building. As we went around, the 2 other guides were extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We left knowing the history of the place. The last mr Brown appeared to have a lot of time on his hands as he has carved most of the woodword and furnature in the place, but it is full to the brim of furniture and the like and a sad end to the family line (childless) before it passed to the national Trust.

We arrived expecting to be able to just wander around the house at will. However a guided tour was the only option at that time. And boy was it good. We were in a small party of 6. The guide was inspirational, it was a wonderful story she told us about the house and the people who lived there. We had a whole hour with her but were never bored, the time just flew by. The house is unique and in the middle of the tourist area. Don't miss going there.

Great visit to an old farmhouse. Very interesting history in the house. Staff/guides were great telling some history and pointing out bits in the carvings that are not immediately obvious. Personally didn't think the carvings were all that pretty to look at however i cannot deny the workmanship or the detail in the carvings and i have no doubt they will appeal to many others. Well worth a visit.

This farmhouse is amazing. So well preserved it like stepping back to another time. Did one of the guided tours in the morning. Well worth hearing the guide as you learn stuff you wouldn't get from just walking round by yourself. Same price and you can go back in afternoon for another look. Lots of wood carving in house on fireplaces, furniture etc. Garden is so lovely and worth a look round Troutbeck at the old barns, buildings and houses/cottages.

Making our way towards Windermere, we decided to stop for lunch, and happened across Townend by chance. It turned out to be a delightful house, with some seriously sloping floors, and a couple of informative guides who were only too happy to give us the history of the house and it's owners. Such an interesting place, and absolutely worth a visit. I also recommend The Old Post Office Tea Room up the road for a bite to eat while you're there.
