A beautiful lodge in a wonderful location. Lovely restful short break made more so by the attention to detail provided by the owners.

“Amazing lodge in a great location”
Reviewed December 5, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We all really enjoyed our weekend stay in the lodge. It was clean, comfortable and very warm and cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped and all the rooms were furnished to a very high standard. The park in which the lodge is set, is very quiet and pleasant to walk around and Cartmel is just a short stroll away (approx 1 mile) .Cartmel is a great place to visit, but especially if you are a food lover. Plenty of places to visit, both during the day and in the evening. Also just a short drive away from the the South Lakes. We ended our stay with a drive to Bowness, The scenery was amazing in the autumn sunshine. We all agreed that we will return to the lodge the next time we visit Cartmel, either as a group or seperately with our partners.

“Emmaculate lodge”
Reviewed November 1, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Have returned from four day stay at Bracken Lodge. It is immaculate stately decorated and well equipped as well as being toddler friendly. Our two year grandson loved his time there having wee adventures to feed the ducks and through the wooded area looking for the squirrels. Will definitely recommend to friends and come again. Thanks for having us.

“Much more than just a basic self catering lodge!”
Reviewed September 26, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Bracken Lodge was extremely comfortable, clean, homely and in a great location. Barry was great at responding to our requests and left a high chair and travel cot for our use. We would highly recommend to anyone and fully intend to return for longer next time. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
