“Top Quality Accommodation”
Reviewed 8 August 2011

The proof of a how good this place was should be apparent as we booked for next year whilst we were still there!

The accommodation is fantastic. We stayed in Lodge Flora which was 3 bedroom.

Equipment level in our lodge was exemplary. Fully fitted, modern kitchen, complete with fitted oven, hob, dishwasher, etc etc. All cutlery, crockery, glasses provided and of good quality; not value items you may expect in holiday accommodation.

Bedroom 1 has e-suite. Large shower + bath and modern, clean feel. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are both fitted with double beds.

The lounge, kitchen, dining area runs the full length of the lodge. The whole front of the lodges are glass fronted and overlook the lake we were sited on. Stepping out of the double glazed patio doors onto your own private veranda for breakfast, lunch or dinner was perfect.

Fishing was excellent. Family of four and we all caught fish whatever day we fished. Make sure you take reasonable tackle as the water was a little shallow they fought all the way in. We were also pulling double figure carp out and were told a 24lb fish is in the main carp lake.

Very quiet location and the river Swale runs round the perimeter that you can also fish. Standing in the middle of a river for a couple of hours throwing a rod out was one of the most relaxing, tranquil things I can say I have done.

All in all, a great place to relax for a week and as already mentioned, it was so good we booked for next year.

We have just returned from our holiday at Brompton Lakes and can honestly say we would not have changed anything about our stay! From the moment we arrived, we were instantly relaxed due to the stunning views across the West Lake and fantastic living accommodation. The lodge definitely had the 'wow factor' when we walked in. Great décor and extremely well equipped, the lodge certainly had a home-from-home feel about it. We were first impressed by the size of the lodge and that every area of it had a special/bespoke feel about it. Each of the 3 bedrooms were a really good size, and we really liked the open plan living space and the doors that opened out onto the decking area.

We thoroughly recommend the 'dine-in service' that is featured on the website. Liz Fairburn (Food for Thought) cooked for us on one of the nights and meal was fabulous and in our opinion, great value for money for the service and amount of food you get. We opted for the fine dining menu which was £210 for 6 people. Liz and another lady arrived about an hour beforehand and created a relaxed atmosphere as soon as they walked in. We were told to just sit back and relax and they would do all the rest, and they weren't wrong! As it was nice weather, we had canapés on the decking overlooking the lake and then went inside for the meal itself. Food was delicious, could not fault it in any way. Everything was cleaned away afterwards and the kitchen was spotless. A very special evening which only accentuated our opinion of Brompton Lakes.

We stayed here on a trip with my parents, my brother and my husband and I. Absolutely loved it! We stayed in Abbey and it was gorgeous, the attention to detail is unbelievable.
My dad spent nearly the whole first day just commenting on how nice everything was. All the kitchen units, rooms, bathroom etc was a really high specification ... gorgeous.

The fishing was a bit of a let down for the fellas, think the fish are a bit too bright. Over the full 3 days fishing they only caught one little one :-( As it rained all weekend my mum and I did absolutely nothing, and we loved every minute of it!

If you don't like bugs I wouldn't bother though, as its the countryside we had our fair share of moth and daddy long leg visitors. Doesn't bother me or my family as we're ex campers (after this trip don't think we'll be in a tent again! - Why when we can go in gorgeous cabins like this one) but my hubby who's been brought up in hotels for hotels couldn't handle it! Hilarious!!

Gorgeous ... already want to go back!

I've just returned from a hen weekend at Brampton Lodges and cannot say enough about how gorgeous the lodges, facilities and the surroundings are.
We were welcomed to the lodge with a hamper which included a bottle of wine, fresh bread, butter, cheese, chocolate biscuits and fresh coffee.
The lodge has it's own bbq, washing machine and the cleani9ng products were all included. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

First visit to Brompton Lakes and we were knocked out, it was brilliant!!! Other lodge owners should come and take a master class from Brompton, they have thought of everything in the lodges. We came armed with all our usual self catering items for the kitchen but everything and more was already there. We were two families with children aged 6 and 4, the site was great no kids play area but we didn't need one with the paths to explore on foot and on bike, boules, tennis, basketball, not forgetting the fish, ducks and geese that were so much fun to feed. The children also loved the river with their fishing nets. We stayed in Florence and cannot recommend it enough the weather was great on arrival but was chillier the other two days which was a shame as with the decking and views we would quite happily spent the time relaxing on the deck. The colder nights did mean we got the chance to light the fabulous log fire, yes they get hot but the lovely lady had already explained that on arrival, kids were great, looked at it but steered clear as they were told to. All in all a brilliant time we will definately be looking for an opportunity to return ...we would happily live there.......cannot reccomend it highly enough.

We have just returned from a weekend break for our first visit to Brompton Lakes and we certainly were'nt dissapointed !!! As 6 long term friends,who frequently go away for 'girlie' breaks,we have visited some very pleasing (and not so pleasing)properties.....but we have to say that this is most definitely the best yet!!! Our lodge was 'Rebecca' and everything about it was superb...we faced the evening sun..and may I say,we were well and truly blessed with beautiful weather,so that was an added bonus! You can be as lazy or as active as you wish and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. It's a very short car ride into Richmond,which is a very pretty market town...and it's definitely worth a visit to 'The White Swan'pub just before you enter Richmond....the Sunday lunch was excellent and well worth the £6.99...the meats were beautiful and tender. Anyway,back to the lodges,they are designed to offer you plenty of privacy but if sitting on your veranda,you can watch the activities of your neighbours.The wild life is lovely and we were lucky enough to see 11 new born ducks visit us daily with their mum to be fed..so sweet! Excellent place to visit...the previous reviews also say it all. Our advice...you have to go there!!!! But......don't tell too many people....it's a little piece of paradise!!!

With this being our second stay at Brompton, we were hoping that everything was going to be as good as before...
Brompton Lakes didn't disappoint us, everything was brilliant, if not better! We stayed in Isabella this time and loved the peace and tranquillity of where she is situated. The lodge was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The under floor heating and the log burner kept us all warm and cosy after some very long walks in the snow, all in all another great stay...so great in fact we have just booked again for August!
