“Perfect!”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a lovely, spotlessly clean lodge. It has everything you need. The grounds are beautiful. Cartmel is very close, as are many lovely little towns and villages. I agree with others who commented that they would reluctantly recommend Bracken Lodge. It would be best kept a secret!

“The setting of the lodge was peaceful and idealic.”
Reviewed 12 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The lodge was stunning, well equipped, right down to the dog treats, bowl and doggy towel. We visited Cartmel, took in all it's history, and lovely shops. Lake Windermere was beautiful, well worth a visit. Had a lovely night, with our dog Ruby, in the Pig and Whistle, in Cartmel. Thanks for a wonderful few days

“A jewel of a find, very tranquil and stunning setting, close to Cartmel”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Beautiful accommodation set in the stunning grounds of Aynsome Manor. Would recommend this place to anyone. Cartmel has a fantastic selection of lovely bars and restaurants and my only regret is that we didn't book for a week!

Will definitely book to go back again.

Thank you so much!
