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. This beautiful Lake District hotel is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a country house atmosphere with all the comforts of home, while surrounded by spectacular landscapes, lakes and fells. 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.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Just got back from 2 nights at the Briery Wood hotel. First of all, we were greated by a lovely young Australian girl who instantly made us feel relaxed which was a great start. Danny was great, whether he was serving our evening meal, or serving drinks or info about the area.

Response from brierywood, Front of House Manager at Briery Wood Country House Hotel
Responded 3 weeks ago
Thank you for your generous review. It's great to hear that you had such an enjoyable time with us. All our front of house team dedicate themselves to creating a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for our guests, including Gabby who first greeted you and made you feel so at home from the start. Danny joined us several months ago as assistant manager and proves himself to be very popular with the guests with his easy and friendly manner. We offer a breakfast option which receives much in the way of positive feedback and, although the traditional English breakfast is something of a meatfest, we see no reason why our vegetarian guests should miss out, with a plentiful meat free option also available. Our evening meals also prove popular with many of our guests opting to dine with us during their stay and letting us know how much they have enjoyed the experience. It's great to hear that you are already considering your return visit to the hotel and we shall b ready to welcome you back when you do.

When booking a afternoon tea, is it possible to have more savory items, and less cakes?
I would be sure that would be possible as the staff always want to help. Maybe a short call before arrival might be the best way to answer your question.

I'm not sure but they are very accommodating so I'd just call and ask-can't guarantee they will but can guarantee you'll really enjoy if you go.
