Townend, Troutbeck

Must see · Historic Site · Landmark
Townend is a 17th-century house located in Troutbeck, Windermere, Cumbria, England, and in the ownership of the National Trust. It was donated to the Trust in 1948. Prior to this it was the home of the Browne family, local farmers, for 400 years. Although not the sort of stately home usually associated with the National Trust, it provides an insight into the life of a reasonably wealthy farming family.
