    “The site is very quite and made up of holiday lets and residential vans, ours was between residents but they were very helpful and friendly.”

    ...

    The van was immaculately clean on arrival and the milk and wine in the fridge was a nice touch. Mobile phone signal is not the best but we found the best place was on the front outside decking. The WIFI signal was also very good. The beds were very comfy but we did find the settees in the lounge a little on the hard side but managed quite well for a weeks holiday. The van is very well equipped with good quality kitchen items the only thing missing was a potato masher. If you take your dog along as we did there are no dog walks in the immediate vicinity but the walk along the country road outside the site sufficed had we not gone out for the day. We would defiantly stay again should we be that way .

The property

Broughton 1.1 miles.

Resting in the Brigham Holiday Park in Brigham, Cumbria is Burlees Nest, a well-presented lodge offering all the home comforts you need for a relaxing break.

Ideal for couples or small families, the lodge provides a compact yet well-equipped space which is perfect all year round.

Entering the property, the open-plan living space invites you to kick off your shoes and settle in to watch TV with your loved ones while the electric fire gently warms the space.

From here, take advantage of the stylish kitchen and rustle up mouth-watering meals for your group to enjoy at the dining table.

In the warmer months, throw open the patio doors and let some fresh air in, or make your way out onto the decking to savour your morning coffee in the crisp air.

When sleep calls, head to the bedrooms to rest your eyes; the lodge hosts a king-size with an en-suite basin and WC and a twin, both with plenty of storage so you can unpack your belongings.

Completing the lodge is a fitted shower room, perfect for rinsing off after an adventurous day.

Give the chef of the group a break from cooking and head out to the local pubs for some dinner; Shills of Cockermouth rests in the centre of Cockermouth just a short drive away and offers a trendy setting and contemporary menu.

Just a short and scenic drive will take you to Wordsworth House and Garden, the historic former home of William Wordsworth, which is now open to the public and boasts picturesque gardens to explore.

If you're feeling extra adventurous, head to Honister Slate Mine to discover the climbing opportunities deep in the old mines, or Go Ape Whinlatter to swing your way through the treetop courses.

Children and animal lovers may also enjoy Lake District Wildlife Park, home to over 100 species of animals in a stunning area, where you can also stop off at the café to fuel your next adventure.

Why not get your walking boots on and spend the day exploring the Lake District National Park, home to a plethora of walking and cycling routes of varying terrains and difficulties, or you can even try and conquer one of the many peaks!

Whatever the weather, choose Burlees Nest as your base for a fantastic holiday to Cumbria.
