If you are looking for a fantastic place to chill out and completely relax Brompton lake is the place. We have just spent a week there in Iris and totally relaxed, done some walking, cooking together in the fabulous kitchen and enjoyed each other’s company. The staff are very friendly and Kate and Ryan are at the end of the phone if you need anything. We are back there next June and can’t wait. We didn’t go into Richmond this time, but on previous stays we have walked there passed easby abbey and into Richmond which is well worth a visit.
We stayed at lodge 'Twnety One' (21st to 25th of Sept 2020) which is the largest on the site and it is the only place we've ever been where it was better than any of the pictures, reviews or expectations. There really is no fault I can pick with our stay.
omg, what lovely lodges. done to a high specification. it was really relaxing, sitting on the deck, watching the swans etc, and just hearing , nothing, so peaceful, just what we needed, stayed in louis, very private, only downside was the walk to the lodge which is uphill and down path, but you can go around the other side so not a deal breaker.. The whole setting is great. would definitely recommend . may be a bit expensive but you get what you pay for. and the only down side was what someone else has already commented on, the fact that you don't get a discount for taking out bins, removing bedding etc, i thought the cleaners did this, and the 1st day is gone before you can check in.
A fabulous break in the gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside. The lodge was outstanding. Very light and airy and overlooking a lake. (Unfortunately not a lot of fish to be caught). There was everything you would require including a washing machine. Very close to towns like Whitby and North Alllerton. Well worth a visit
This was that very rare place that is as good as it looks on the website. A handful of luxury lodges built around two lakes and beside the river Swale. The development is carefully designed that you have a view across the lake and not of the other lodges. The lodges are just stunning, with planted sedum roofs and all glass fronts. We stayed in Juniper. I imagine the lodges are all equally well appointed but this one seemed extremely private, you couldn't see any other lodges. I would have preferred dog free due to allergies but none was available and it didn't smell of dogs though there was a powerful smell of air freshener when we arrived. Fortunately it soon dispersed. I don't normally choose self catering but was unsure about staying in a hotel at this time. In fact the kitchen was so well equipped you could have catered for a banquet. We ate breakfast and lunch here and visited a couple of local restaurants in the evening. Sadly there isn't actually anywhere within normal walking distance. I loved the furnishings lots and lots of cupboard space. Huge en-suite and a separate bathroom. The decking had plenty of comfortable furniture and we were lucky with the weather and able to sit outside all day. It was peaceful and beautiful. All very eco friendly but there was a warning that the hot water would only permit two 5 minute showers. This meant we had to plan who had baths and showers and there were only four of us. I feel that unlimited hot water is not too much to expect. Also the heating apparently takes four hours to respond, luckily we didn't need it. There is a log fire which I'm sure is fun if you don't have one at home. I agree with another reviewer that I was aghast to read that we were expected to strip the beds, clean all the worktops, and take the rubbish to the re-cycling centre. This was on top of not being able to check in until 1630 and having to get up early to check out at 0930 "because of covid" I am not in the best of health and stripping three beds was a challenge. ( I didn't want to ask my guests to do it). I'm afraid if I return the beds will be left. I have made a few critical comments which I feel are justified as this is not a low budget option, but I will definitely be back.…
