My husband booked a last minute break for our family to stay at Brathay Hall. This place is set in a beautiful location with amazing views all around, fabulous country walks and the lake a short walk away. We are a family of five with 3 young children. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and were booked into the brand new Scandinavian Lodges situated a small distance away from the main hall itself. These are beautifully presented on the outside and on the inside too with lovely furniture, the bed was huge and comfortable there was plenty of room for us all even enough room for 2 camping beds, big fluffy towels, ample toiletries, there was even a safe in the room should you need it. The bathroom was massive too and the whole cleanliness was spot on. I honestly could not complain about anything. We all had a great nights sleep and the silence was bliss. The Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of it too, compliments to all the kitchen staff who worked so hard it really did set us up for the whole day. The gentleman that checked us in and out was very professional and could not do enough for us. I have recommended this hidden gem to all my work colleagues and family and we can not wait to get another free weekend to be able to stay here again. 5 stars, thank you
