Family of 4 really enjoyed our week stay at Bracken Lodge set within Aynsome Manor park. The park itself is picturesque, very quiet, child and dog friendly and within 15 minutes walk of the wonderful & charming Cartmel Village and a short drive to Grange Over Sands and a good base for the South Lakes.
The accommodation at Bracken Lodge is exceptional. It is very clean, well maintained and well equipped and has a fantastic little decking area which we would have made more use of if the weather had been a little better. The lodge is nicely secluded so plenty of privacy with it's own allocated car park space.
I cannot praise this lodge highly enough, would love to return and have already recommended it to family and friends.
Just returned after a long weekend in Bracken Lodge and nothing but praise for this delightful cabin!!
Granted, the sun shone all weekend, but I would imagine with torrential rain, I would be saying the same things!
Internally, the cabin is very stylish and spacious, with all needs catered for, and more!! The outside space is tranquil and private - and a great sun trap!!
Overall, a superb holiday home, set in a beautiful park, close to the lovely village of Cartmel - can’t wait to visit again soon!!
Location was great. You are well away from any traffic, therefore the only noise we heard was the birds and the rare occasion somebody walked to another nearby lodge. However, you are only a short drive from the Motorway, and an even shorter drive to Lake Windemere, so the location couldn't be better
The inside of the lodge was very well kept, and spaced brilliantly to maximize use (it's like stepping into the Tardis). We had planned to eat out every night, but fell in love with the lodge so much that most nights we brought food back and ate in. With the gas fire on its very cosy, no matter the weather outside
Outside the lodge, the high hedges and wall make it the most private lodge on the estate. Yet there is no shade on the front of the property, and it was lovely eating breakfast out there with the sun blazing right onto the decking.
Would definitely like to return some day, and would highly recommend to anybody
It's a lovely lodge for family. Very much kids friendly. First of all the lodge is very clean and you will have almost everything you need for your stay. The rooms are of decent size, well decorated with modern furnishings and it felt like home. Our two kids 6yr & 4yr old loved the place. The surroundings are quite nice and peaceful. It was a lovely experience.
