Whether you’re planning a weekend with friends, a romantic getaway or making the most of your retirement we want to offer you our little patch of paradise. Our mission is to deliver a truly great experience, the Brackenthwaite Experience – an experience built just for you. With 4 beautiful cottages to choose from, all situated on our 9 acres of English countryside not far from the iconic Lake District, you could be waking up to barn swallows, runner ducks and that feeling of endless possibility. With woodburners and fire pits to set the scene, rolling hills as your vista and pre-ordered champagne on the way you have everything you need onsite for an intimate and relaxing stay. Or if adventuring is your thing, why not head into the famed Lake District fells for some wild swimming at sunrise or paddle boarding at dusk.

If it’s relaxation, reconnection, or reinvigoration that you need, we’ve got you covered! We’ve created a truly unique space for you to focus on each other or yourself and create memories that last a lifetime. Expect starry skies, walks on the beach and a real ‘home-from-home’ experience, where guests are welcomed like friends.

A beautiful destination location with fantastic reviews from fellow explorers, we hope to be the inspiration for your next photo album and invite you to take a look at everything we have to offer.
