Good value for money. Very good breakfast. Beautiful location. Very suitable for those having an outdoor holiday.
Slightly institutional dining room.
Due to an early venue for a sports competition staff went out of their way to provide dining facilities outside their normal hours Beautiful lakeside setting with lots of wildlife.
Beautiful grounds, setting, location. On bath suite is good.
Very poor bed mattress. Small room with little shelving to put luggage.
The Scenery. The excellent facilities.
There was nothing I didn't like
The veiw of the lake was exellent. Room every thing you needed and lovely and peaceful. Would have stayed longer if possible.
Brathey Hall is situated in an idyllic spot. The location alone is worth the price of a room. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast - buffet style - was excellent.
Facilities are basic and a little tired but functional.
Magnificent views from the front of the hall. Spacious lodges. Friendly and interesting reception staff.
Limited parking The wooden lodge apartments are not well sound proofed and noisy neighbours can be an early wake up call. The canteen breakfast is a little impersonal.
We stayed in one of the supreme loges! It was beautifully decorated and was all clean and new!! Recommend to anyone and would return
Lodge rooms Views Near the lake Walking distance to Ambleside Nice breakfast
The room was amazing! The area the surrounding views! Absolutely breath taking!!! Highly recommended
The room was very spacious!
Views across the lake with an easy walk to the shore. A large flock of geese on the field, swallows nesting in the roof and sheep grazing along the drive. You are so close to Ambleside and its excellent restaurants but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place for a short trip to the Lakes.
Beautiful views, basic accommodation but clean and comfortable. Great breakfast and helpful staff. I would stay again
Stayed in a Scarfell room overlooking mountains. For nature lovers these are great, saw lots of rabbits and even a deer! Very large, comfortable rooms. Very relaxing weekend, after breakfast we were able to walk down to the lakeside which was lovely. Breakfast was delicious and not greasy and help yourself. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We were blessed with good weather which is always a bonus!
Location and room
Although we went for breakfast in good time the person in front had the last fried egg and we were told they wouldn't be making anymore. For the price I would have expected the eggs we liked. The dinning area felt a little like a hostel.
The room was spacious and very clean, the staff were very nice and the breakfast was good. The grounds were lovely and it was a pleasant 15 minute walk into Ambleside. We stayed on a Bank Holiday week-end and it was nice to be out of the busy town.
It was a little difficult to find.
room was beautiful with a lovely view overlooking Ambleside. We loved the wood walls, decor etc and the feeling of space in the room. Great bathroom too.
We didn't have a car and so had to walk in and out of Ambleside which was a 20 minute walk, but I have to say it was worth it to escape the town and enjoy the feeling of space.
Everything, lovely spot, clean and tidy
The location is great. The beds good and comfortable. The rooms spacious an clean. It feels good to be helping out the trust and I think that is important. This is less a BnB as a donation to the running of a good cause. Or at least thats what I thought.
This is less a dislike, just a surprise. The BnB is part of a youth centre and so is full of teenagers doing team building. Not a problem but it did mean the house itself is not really a place to stay. The breakfast is pretty bad as well. Everything left in trays and a little cold. For the price the breakfast is not really good enough. Also some fittings were a bit poor in the bathroom and the shower leaked.
Staff was really helpful with arranging a lake view twin room for us. The room had a very charming view of the lake Windermere, grass, trees, and sheep. The house is located in a quiet area. Big grassland in front of the house, where you can play some games, drink a little, or do some thinking while looking at the beautiful lake. In short, almost everything is good there. Great value for money. Certainly worth recommendation.
Nothing we really didn't like. The sound was a bit big when flushing the toilet. The water pressure of the shower was a bit low. But definitely acceptable.
Quiet picturesque location. It rained while we were there so we did not take advantage of the walks,lake etc. would so much like to be there on a sunny day.
Lovely place to stay only 5 minutes in the car from Ambleside, we stayed in a twin room and had a lovley view of the lake. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful - would definately recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful break.
The location and friendly staff.
The breakfast wasn't cooked to order and so was luke warm.
Good location and view
Room was pretty hot at night when we went during summer despite we had the windows opened.
The location - view and peacefulness
nothing - ticked all the boxes!
Beautiful grounds, comfortable beds, nice room with a lovely view, friendly staff, excellent breakfast.
Overhead bed lights much too bright, wall lamps would be much better. Radiator blazing but impossible to turn off.
