Due to health risks both to our guests and ourselves (we are both in our 70's) we are currently closed.
We don't expect to re-open until these health risks have substantially changed.
We are sorry to disappoint our many regular guests and friends, and hope that we might see you again sometime in the future.
With best wishes from Monica and Brian

Studios description

Our facilities, our location, and what makes us different from most other b&bs

Each Studio has its own private entrance, kitchen, living and terrace areas

Fellside Studios offer you the best of both worlds – all the comfort and attention to detail you’d expect in a top quality b&b – plus the freedom and convenience of your own private entrance, kitchen, living and terrace areas.

You can relax in your own Studio at any time of day. Microwave a quick snack, or prepare a romantic dinner, in your own fully-equipped kitchen. Watch a dvd from your own sofa or lounge chair. Park your car (or your boots) alongside your own front door. Or you can simply do nothing, absorbing the stunning views in the peace and tranquility of your own terrace dining area.

You can stay for as little as two days. You don’t have to bring any linen, kitchen supplies, or utensils. And we bring a freshly-prepared full continental breakfast to your Studio each morning.

At the heart of one of the Lake District’s most peaceful and unspoilt villages

Fellside Studios are set in a quiet lane in the peaceful Troutbeck valley, yet only a few minutes’ walk from Troutbeck’s village shop and tea room, the National Trust at Townend, two famous traditional inns with restaurants, and many miles of country lanes, footpaths and bridleways – all accessed directly from your own front door.

Relax with a coffee and enjoy wonderful views down the Troutbeck valley…
…or set off on a walk direct from your doorstep

Beautifully furnished living, kitchen and dining areas

Purpose-designed for two people, each Studio is furnished and equipped to a very high standard, with a designer-furnished living and dining area, a well-equipped kitchen, and a glazed oak door leading to your own private parking and terrace dining area.

Each studio is beautifully furnished, with solid-oak flooring, local Tilberthwaite slate tiling, top brand appliances and designer furniture

Fully equipped with everything you need

Both Studios are on the ground floor, with a slate-tiled kitchen, equipped with an electric-hob, fridge, microwave oven, kitchen utensils and supplies, a slate-tiled shower-room, dining table and chairs, lounge seating, dvd-player, free wifi, a terrace dining area, private parking, and access to a heated drying cellar and locked bicycle storage.

Studio 1 has a double bed and unsurpassed views down the Troutbeck valley
Studio 2 has twin or double beds and a separate kitchen

Studio 1 has a double bed, the kitchen is in a raised oak-floored area alongside the main room, there are two lounge chairs, and the dining terrace has unsurpassed views down the Troutbeck valley.

Studio 2 has the option of either twin or double beds, the kitchen is in a separate room, lounge seating is a double sofa, and the dining terrace is alongside our front shrub garden, with a more limited (but still very beautiful) view across the Troutbeck valley.

We bring you a freshly prepared breakfast each morning

Although both Studios have their own fully equipped kitchens, there’s nothing quite like wakening up to the smell of fresh coffee, warm rolls and croissants.

You can choose your own breakfast the night before from our ‘tick-box’ menu

So we bring you a freshly prepared continental breakfast to your Studio each morning.

You can choose your breakfast, and when you’d like it delivered, from our ‘tick-box’ menu.

Choices include freshly boiled organic eggs from our own chickens, honey roast ham, dutch cheese, organic yogurt and honey, warm croissants, wholemeal rolls and toast, organic muesli, fresh grapefruit, and lots more.

Stay for just a couple of nights, or a week, or more…

We’re open most of the year for short breaks from two nights, with a choice of double or twin ground-floor Studios, both fully-serviced, including a freshly-prepared full continental breakfast. Full details on our Prices and details page.

Make an enquiry, or book with us, anytime…

You are welcome to call us anytime on 015394 34000, or drop us an e-mail to

Or quickest of all – you can check all your dates – and book online – using the instant availability checker on our Availability and booking page.


We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve stayed. Beautiful and welcoming as always, it’s still one of our favourites.

We felt very looked-after — fantastic breakfasts, a warm welcome, friendly advice, and non-intrusive — in such a stylish, practical, beautiful studio!

B&Bs do not get any better than this — spectacular scenery outside the door, a warm comfortable cottage, and hospitable, kind and intelligent hosts
