We stayed here for our mini-moon, it was perfect, lovely and warm and homely, hot tub was amazing and very hot.. the site was clean and equipped, the bar area served good pub grub and was fairly priced... great location within the park as it’s tucked away and the park itself is a half hour walk to Windermere and Bowness. The lodge was clean and well equipped with essentials. An added bonus is that Asda do a delivery to the park so we didn’t even have to go looking for a supermarket. Overall excellent and would highly recommend bramble bank.

Just Wow

I absolutely loved this break away. Our first time in the Lake District and I am so glad I booked this lodge. Gorgeous location on Lake Windermere, beautiful lodge and the privacy of the hot tub was fantastic. Very clean and had everything we needed. Regarding the location again, it's perfect for exploring. We visited Ambelside, Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere but couldn't wait to get back to Bramble Lodge on the evening to enjoy it. Lots of great information leaflets and the master bed is so comfortable. I can't thank you enough for our fabulous break away and we will definitely be returning next year. I have already recommended you to my family and friends and my brother is looking at booking a stay already. Thank you.
