Brackenrigg is the perfect venue for a family holiday - extensive gardens and an acre of woodland. You'll find the woodland is home to an abundance of wildlife (badgers, red squirrels, deer, owls, buzzards), & flowers. Explore the network of pathways and picnic spots. There's a large ball-play paddock with football net (child size), and typical games such as footballs, frizbees etc. And red squirrels to watch playing in the grounds. The fell behind is a natural adventure playground of fells, crags, rocks, paths, streams, waterfalls and a tarn, access from the ladder stile just 200m from Brackenrigg. There are lots of easy and more challenging walks from the door .

You can borrow an extensive range of guide-books and maps, plus our own local knowledge, to help you get the best out of your stay in this most beautiful corner of the world. Timetables & contacts for the Leisure Pool, Derwentwater launch, bike hire, watersports & horse-riding are available.

To help with the kids, a Children's Toybox is available, with a selection of games, such as Duplo, farm animals, Marble Run, dolls & dressing up stuff. Brackenrigg House has a games room with an air hockey table, lots of board games & books. In the Ball Play Paddock there's an Outdoor Games Box - typically containing Frisbees, boule, a cricket set, football & football goal.

For when they tire, all cottages have TV & DVD. Free wi-fi, and iPOD docs, Brackenrigg House and The Sett also have a cd player
