I would recommend a stay at Brathay Hall to anyone. The grounds are beautiful. Our Scafell room in one of the Scandinavian lodges felt far more luxurious than we had dreamed of, based on the bargain price we paid. The staff are friendly and helpful. Location is absolutely ideal, only a short distance from fabulous Windemere, Ambleside and Hawkshead. We will definitely be visiting again soon. Thank you!
