The Brownes of Townend were just an ordinary farming family, but their home and belongings bring to life more than 400 years of extraordinary stories. You will understand why Beatrix Potter described Troutbeck valley as her favourite as you approach this traditional stone and slate farmhouse. Once inside you are welcomed into the farmhouse kitchen with a real fire burning most days and a quirky collection of domestic tools. Discover more about life as a Cumbrian farming family - guides are offered in the mornings. Tel: 01539 432628
