We visited Brompton Lakes in late November 2013 for a weekend break with our son and his wife plus two small dogs.
The lodges are located in beautiful parkland overlooking two spectacular lakes. The autumn colours of the mature trees were at their very best. We enjoyed three crisp cold days of dog walking and three nights sat beside the log burner.
We stayed in dog-friendly Imogen lodge and found it to be very comfortable. The lodge had everything you would possibly need for a relaxing holiday. The welcome hamper was a nice touch and we soon had the bottle of red open.
Primarily we were just wanting to chill and kick back a little without any big plans for the weekend. On the second day we forced ourselves out of Brompton Lakes and managed to walk along the river to Richmond, visiting the old railway station and Richmond Market.
Over the weekend we had dinner at The Shoulder of Mutton in Middleton Tyas (giving me the opportunity to get my 'this isn't a bad joint' joke in) and lunch at The Heifer in Scorton. The Heifer was superb and we would highly recommend the Sunday lunch.
We will definitely be back and have tried to re-book for the New Year period but predictably its full.
The shower in the en-suite only produced a trickle, not wanting to cause a fuss our son didn't mention it until the last night otherwise we would have reported it to the site team during our visit. We did report it on departure and are sure it will be sorted now.
Perfect location, superb lodges, great dog walks, excellent pubs and restaurants all equals a very enjoyable weekend break.
