Highly Recommended place to stay
Our stay at Brathay Lodge was fantastic. Our room was spotless, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was also brilliant, it was right in the heart of Ambleside and close to all the main parts of the Lake District. The reserved parking spot was also a lovely added touch.
Our room. (Number 21) it was at the top of 3 flights of stairs!
