  • Thanks for a great weekend

    Thanks for a great weekend. We came with a big group and had a great time. Parents comfortable in one area while kids were safely in their own den area. Fantastic! Comfortable beds and warm and cosy with the fire going. Great weekend had by all. Thanks.

  • Bradshaws Lodge was a great option for our getaway with eight adults...

    Bradshaws Lodge was a great option for our getaway with eight adults and seven kids - plenty of room for everyone. We used the main dining area the most, great fire and good to have heaters in all the bedrooms. Excellent location, nice big kitchen. Lodge is pretty dated, but that was expected and added to its charm. Negative was the wiring in the back of the lodge, where the kids' rooms are was a bit hit and miss, we blew the fuses most days when turning both heaters and lights on. Easy fix tho.
