The South front of Townend, a rare intact survival of the house of a family of yeoman farmers in Troutbeck, Cumbria

Fine example of Lake District vernacular architecture. Largely 17th-century, the solid stone and slate house is an exceptional survival. It belonged to a wealthy ‘statesman’ farming family and contains carved woodwork, books, papers, furniture and fascinating domestic implements from the past, largely accumulated by the Browne family who lived here from 1626 to 1943. A real fire burns in the ‘down house’ most days, lending a homely atmosphere.
