This is a lovey hotel set in beautiful gardens. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. We stayed in a superior room which had a great view of the front lawn and the lake in the distance. The highlight of our stay was the amazing Afternoon Tea on the first day. What a treat! Will definitely return...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moments from the eastern shores of Lake Windermere and set in seven acres of beautiful secluded gardens and woodland lies Briery Wood Country House Hotel.

Briery Wood is within easy reach of the popular villages of Ambleside, Bowness and Windermere, so it's a great base for exploring the Lake District, whether you are looking for a spot of retail therapy or outdoor adventure. The informal and friendly service is so good you'll hardly notice it. It's our job to make you feel at home...Which isn't hard once you sit back and unwind in one of our cosy lounges whilst enjoying a freshly brewed coffee or maybe a glass of chilled wine. ... more   less
