We booked Brackenrigg for a family Christmas and it fit the bill perfectly. Lovely open plan living area was ideal and the dining table sat 11 for Christmas lunch. We had also booked one of the studio cottages for an additional two guests and there was room for us all to get together in the main house.
Owners were unobtrusive, but always available if help was needed. They even set up a lovely Christmas tree prior to our arrival.
Only 10 mins to Keswick, and just off the main road to Ambleside and the south lakes. Nice walks right from the front door. Raven Crag was an easy 2 hours with 2 young kids and lovely views down Thirlmere.
Lovely house in a great location. Thoroughly recommended.
