“Peaceful, cosy and Beutiful location”
Reviewed 9 February 2017 for a stay in December 2016

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

“What a great find!!! Could've stayed for a month!”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

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.

“Nice place”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The lodge is well appointed and modern, we have stayed in a number of different lodges in Aynsome. This is probably the best.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary here along with our dog and it couldn't have been more perfect. The Lodge is immaculately presented, tastefully decorated, a real home from home. It is set in a lovely peaceful park and our dog really enjoyed her daily walks around The Orchard. We were lucky to have a few fantastic day's weather wise, so the decking was put to great use to enjoy a few G & T's!! Everything has been thought about in relation to self catering and much to my joy, some decent sized wine glasses. Very comfortable bed and it was a joy to return to the lovely cozy fire. Cartmel is a beautiful little village full of character with excellent dining choices. We really cannot think of anything we didn't like about Bracken Lodge and can certainly recommend to others.
