A beautiful escape
We're currently staying at Brook Lodge for our anniversary weekend and a belated get away for my husband's 40th birthday. The lodge itself is beautiful. It's decorated to a very high standard and has lots of little luxuries, like the hot tub! The weather outside is freezing but the lodge is lovely and cosy. The bed is the comfiest best I've ever slept in and the pillows are so fluffy and soft! We're here with our dog, Lyla and having the secured decking is a huge bonus. Outside of the decking there are acres and acres of land to go for beautiful winter walks with a lake to walk around as well. My 1 and only tiny tiny criticism (and I know how ridiculous this is going to sound) is that the lovely smelling diffuser in the downstairs loo is empty and needs refilling/replacing. But I only say that because I have a bit of an obsession for diffusers haha. I guess I do have 1 more criticism and that is that the lodge is so nice that I really don't want to leave!! If you need a romantic break or to just get away from reality for a bit, this is the perfect place to do it!

Fantastic dog friendly lodge!
We arrived at Brooke Lodge, together with our two GSPs, for 3 nights in July to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival we were highly impressed with the space in the lodge and the privacy and tranquility. The position of this lodge at the end of a row of 5 gives the most seclusion. A short walk away is the lake which was amazing - both dogs spent the afternoon swimming in the lake and we joined them with our kayak. Only downsides: There’s no permanent BBQ ( I suspect there is some regulation against this as they did provide one disposable BBQ). It was very hot and the Lodge could do with a couple of fans and so we recommend bringing your own if the weather is forecast to be hot! Otherwise, absolutely perfect and we will most definitely be back!
