Whether you are looking for a family vacation, peaceful break or romantic weekend away, Brockwood Hall is the perfect place for adventure and relaxation. It is nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty and acres of ancient protected woodland at the top of Whicham Valley. Enjoy the fresh country air while out on an early morning stroll you might be in luck to meet our colourful and flamboyant peacocks who have become somewhat our permanent residents at the lodge.
Brockwood Hall offers a range of facilities and services without even having to step out of the resort. Onsite we have a lovely Leisure Centre with an indoor heated pool where you can enjoy a swim or relax in the sauna. Our bar and dining rooms are perfectly suited for you to relax and chat. We also have a bistro and restaurant onsite that serves the most scrumptious food! For the children there is lovely outdoor play area with a jungle gym for them to play on. Around the protected woodlands there are some lovely nature trails perfect for an invigorating stroll. On the rare occasion a Deer will cross your path as you walk through the woods, so keep a look out on your next nature trail walk.
Brockwood Hall is a great base for touring the surrounding area and local attractions. Four miles away from the resort is a little town called Millom. This is a town with an abundant amount of history and is a great starting point for tourists. Near the railway station is the Millom Discovery Center that has over 10 000 artifacts and a huge range of exhibits, that have been donated by the people of the town, and reflect the early history of Millom. People come far and wide to see the major exhibit based around Norman Nicholson – the famous English poet. This exhibit features a sprucely decorated room scattered with his poetry about the town and pictures of his childhood.
The closest nature reserve to the town is the Hodbarrow Nature Reserve which is the perfect spot for bird watchers. If you in the mood for a round of golf then swing into Eskdale Golf Course, but a perfect end to a busy day of touring the town is to retreat to one of the many peaceful spots at the lodge and read a good book.
Gareth Bezuidenhout, Group Training Supervisor recently took a trip to Brockwood Hall and had this to say, “I had amazing homemade goodies from Broughton Village Bakery, a small and quaint bakery nearby. My favorite dish on the menu was the Steak & Ale Pie served with hand cut chips, season vegetables and lashings of gravy. I had a lovely time at the lodge even though it was a bit chilly.”
