Townend, Troutbeck


Townend is a large house and farm located on Holbeck Lane to the south of Troutbeck. It was built in 1626 for George Browne, a wealthy yeoman farmer and his bride, Susannah Rawlinson. Townend is one of the best surviving examples of a Lake District 'statesman' farmer’s dwelling of the 17th century. Townend became a National Trust property in 1948. The farmhouse is a Grade I listed building on the National Heritage List for England. The old wool barn at Townend is also a listed building.

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.
