Mortal Man Inn (Troutbeck – Windermere)




“Beneath the rugged fells of Troutbeck Valley, just outside Windermere and Ambleside in the English Lake District, lies The Mortal Man”…

An established traditional Lake District Inn since 1689, it resides over the wondrous panoramic views of Lakeland mountains that have captivated the great minds through the centuries. A traditional English Inn with accommodation based in the heart of the Lake District; the Mortal Man is the perfect base for Lakeland walks or to take a trip on Lake Windermere and wander the beautiful towns and villages close-by. For fell walkers; the Kentmere round and Wansfell can be achieved from the doorstep and Hellvelyn, High Street, the Langdale pikes are nearby.

The Mortal Man Inn is a good old fashioned English pub, which just happens to be set in the most gorgeous location. Our traditional bar comprises of three separate sections, each made cosy by having its own open log fire. Seated in comfort, you can enjoy our carefully selected cask ales, malt whiskies, or perhaps a glass of delicious wine. For the walkers, maps are freely available for you to plan your next walk or discuss your day’s walking.
