About Caroline Bonkenburg
My name is Caroline and together with my husband, Hans and our two boys we moved to The Lake District in 1990. We love this beautiful part of England and with the Lakeland fells on our doorstep can indulge in our passion for walking with our little West Highland Terrier, Pemba. Living locally and being involved in the hospitality industry since 1990, has helped us to develop an understanding of what the many visitors to the area are looking for. We take an active role in looking after Autumn Leaves and are always at hand to answer any questions, and help you make the most of your holiday with us.
Caroline Bonkenburg purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why Caroline Bonkenburg chose Braithwaite
Set in the picturesque hamlet of Braithwaite, this beautifully located property, with its magnificent views towards Skiddaw and Blencathra, offers its guests easy access to all the many tourist attractions in the Northern Lake District. There are three good pubs, serving hearty local food, all within walking distance. Autumn is officially here, and with it crisp mornings and blustery walks, flurries of leaves and bonfire smoke. The Lakes are especially beautiful in autumn and winter, when the forests blaze with ruddy colour, and the fells are bathed in golden light. It’s much less crowded now than in summer. It’s the perfect time to hit the road and explore some of England’s most beautiful landscapes.

Excellent Stay at this wonderful property!
We loved staying at Autumn Leaves. It was a very well equipped property in a fabulous location. It was comfortable and felt like home. A joy to come back to each day. We will definitely be staying here again in 2109. We would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area!
Thank you for your kind review. We are very happy to hear that you have both
enjoyed your stay in Autumn Leaves, and we very much look forward to
welcoming you back to beautiful Braithwaite next year.

Wonderful house & ideally located 😊
Lovely property, well equipped and homely and beds were so comfy - fab after a day in the hills. Great choice of 2 outside seating areas. Only about 1 mile from Keswick and in a lovely picturesque village. Whinlatter Forest, Grisedale Pike and Barrow right on your doorstep. Super holiday and will return one day.
Thank you so much for your kind review. Braithwaite is indeed well placed, to explore this most beautiful part of The Lake District, with many good walking trails on its doorstep. From the challenge of Grisedale Pike to the more gentle walk through Newlands Valley, there is something for everyone. Look forward to welcoming you again to Autumn Leaves.
Great place to stay
The cottage was absolutely spotless, really well equipped and maintained, with some great finishing touches.
We had a wonderful week with such a great place to come back to each day, with plenty of space outdoors for the kids to run round.
We are really happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay in Autumn Leaves Bungalow, and would like to thank you for visiting our lovely property.
We look forward to welcoming you back to beautiful Braithwaite in the future.
Kind regards. Caroline.
We stayed in Autumn leaves in 2004 and thought it was beautiful then, but is is even more so now. Spotless, comfortable, well equipped and every need catered for. We were lucky to have lovely warm sunny days so made good use of both patios. Good pubs in the village, excellent food at the Royal Oak and super location for walks from the door or easy access to other locations. Strongly recommend
Thank you very much indeed for your kind comments.
