Do you ever have those days where you want to hide away from it all? Last Friday was one of those days. Fortunately for us we were able to do just that, get away and enjoy a little family time and tranquility staying in Abbey Lodge at Brompton Lakes Lodges, Richmond. Check out my review!
Where Is Bromptom Lakes?
Brompton Lakes is a gorgeous collection of lodges around a lake. Which is 20 minute walk or 4 minutes drive from the market town of Richmond, Yorkshire. It’s the perfect location, far enough out for total tranquility. But close enough to offer the chance to nip into to town, for an afternoon mooch around the antique shops and enjoy a glass of wine should you want to leave this glorious countryside haven.
All The Lodges At Brompton Lakes, Richmond Are Unique
Offering different styles and colour themes. I chose Abbey Lodge, the colour palette was just my taste. Abbey Lodge is a pet friendly lodge, just incase we decided to take Toby.
I knew it was going to be beautiful. However I was not prepared for how utterly stunning Brompton Lodges is in reality. The lodges offer open plan living space, and have everything you could possibly need. Holiday at Home had thought of it all.
Brompton Lakes Lodges Have Well Equipped Kitchens
The kitchen is extremely well equipped and is also sleek, modern and beautiful. My parents and brother were traveling with us, and we also invited my other brother and his family over to the lodge for dinner. We had enough plates, glasses and cutlery for everyone. Making Brompton Lakes the perfect place to meet up with family and friends.
The Kitchen Has A Utility Area
Which is perfect for storing recycling, and shopping bags but also has a washing machine, very handy when traveling with kids. The bedrooms are stylish with the comfiest of beds, and lots of storage. Offering 2 large modern bathrooms with showers and toiletries.
The Lounge Area Is Cozy And Comfortably Seats 8
With the most incredible fire. The lodge is linked together with an open dining area, creating a spacious modern feel. Best of all the front of the lodge is glass offering stunning panoramic views out onto the lake.
There Is A Huge Verandah Area Which Steps Down To A Fishing Jetty.
Joe spent most of his time fishing. He loved the fact that Chris, my dad, brothers, sister-in-law, nice and nephews all wanted to help him fish. It seems Joe is quite the pro fisherman and spent the weekend offering tips and tricks of how to get a bite.
For us that was the highlight of the trip, most of the family being together. Usually there is a party, wedding or somewhere to be. We are all spread all over the country and this is the first time that we all got the time to relax together in many years. It was wonderful!
Brompton Lakes Lodges in Richmond is one of those places that lends itself to all weathers. The kitchen is well enough equipped to cook a full Christmas dinner. And with the fire roaring overlooking a frozen lake it would be idyllic.
Yet in summer, with the swans and signet’s swimming up to say hello and the reflection of the fluffy clouds on the still water. The fact that you are able to get up make a coffee, open all the doors, and spend the morning sat in the sun watching the lake, makes this a very special place indeed.
My Review, If I had to find fault with Brompton Lakes Richmond?
It would be that once you enter these luxury lodges in Richmond you don’t want to leave.
We did go into Richmond for an afternoon. And I visited Easby Abbey with my sister-in-law to take photos one evening. But other than that we did not want to leave. We felt so relaxed, but more than that, we felt content and happy in each other’s company.
The boys occasionally walked round to the on site football pitch. We took an afternoon walk around the lake, which is gorgeous. There are on site spa and BBQ areas you can book. Yet you also have a BBQ on the decking, should you want to cook alfresco.
There is an option to pre arrange a dine in service, you can order delicious meal direct to your lodge, this is something I wish we had done, and is on my list for our next visit.
As Chris and I sat on our last evening enjoying a glass of wine, everybody else had left and Joe was desperately trying to catch fish no 15. We agreed this will become an annual trip, Brompton Lakes is special. The perfect spot to get all the family together, the perfect place for us to relax. Where the boys are able to relax, because actually as long as they can fish and play football they are happy.
