Really nice place and we really enjoyed our stay, it was home from home. Was well equipped. The only thing I would say is the 100% need a bigger TV not the tiny thing they have as tried to watch movie with kids and couldn't really see. Still will go back in future for sure.
Beautiful Lodge with every comfort you will need , spotlessly clean ,
The Lodge just made our weekend.
Had a great relaxing stay and nice and cosy at night with the fire on excellent accommodation had everything we needed to make it a great couple of days
Bracken Lodge was the perfect escape after a busy Christmas to relax and unwind and welcome the New Year, Great layout and spotlessly clean, the kitchen is very well equipped and the washing machine come in very handy after a days walking. Cant wait to come back and would definitely recommend to friends and family
Bracken Lodge proved a bit hit both with myself and my two children aged 11 and 9. From the moment we opened the "secret garden-esque" gate into the property grounds we fell in love with the feel of the place. Quiet, teeming with birds and nature and private. The accommodation itself was brilliant, we especially loved the breakfast bar and the remote control central heating. The boys loved their bedroom and I did mine. We visited at a quiet time of year but I can imagine it would be lovely to sit out in the summer months and the garden and decking were really ideal for dining al fresco.
The estate on which Bracken Lodge sits was lovely to wander around and had plenty of space for those with dogs in the adjacent "orchard field". We drove out to Cartmel for some sticky toffee pudding and also ventured up the Windermere shoreline to Brockhole Visitor Centre which was open and allowed the boys time to burn off energy in the tree top nets.
I wish we had stayed longer at Bracken Lodge but we will be back and my parents are very keen to come and stay with their little dog. There was no trace of dog smell in the lodge however, it was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The dishwasher and large fridge freezer helped mealtimes to be a pleasure rather than a chore. There was also a good selection of condiments in the cupboards and the kitchen was well equipped with utensils etc. I also enjoyed the gas fire with real flame effect. It was very cosy at quite a cold time of year.
We had a lovely break in Braken Lodge. the lodge is beautiful with everything you need. it is modern and cosy. luxurious.
