The Beeches is a semi-detached cottage which is part of Trough Bridge, a small complex based on an old farm, with a history going back to the 17th century. The owners, Maggie and Stewart, live next door, and service the Cottage personally.

Trough Bridge is built round a courtyard which provides ample space for off-road parking, and is surrounded by gardens and a small area of woodland, with a family of red squirrels living in it. Wythop Beck, which flows out of the upper Wythop valley, runs through the wood and alongside the garden. The garden is available for use by guests, and has seating for outside meals or simply relaxing.

Trough Bridge is situated on the edge of the village of Wythop Mill, part of Embleton, four miles outside Cockermouth and 9 miles west of Keswick.
