Home to one family for 400 years

Set within Troutbeck Valley in the heart of the Lake District, Townend may look like a typical slate-and-stone farmhouse – but its survival is anything but ordinary.

 This guidebook reflects the love and livelihood of the Brownes, who lived and worked at Townend for over 400 years and 12 generations. Each part of Townend tells their story, from the well-used books in their unique and homely library, to the intricate wooden carvings that fill the house and were created by ‘the last’ George Browne; from the recipes taken from a book written by a former resident in 1699 to the surrounding garden, farmland and valley on which they worked. A compelling insight into an extraordinary farming family.
