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.
History of the hotel
Briery Wood was originally known as Holbeck Cottage. It was built at the end of the 19th century and was part of the Earl of Lonsdale's Estate, used for the servants working at nearby properties. It was also home to the main gardener who developed the stunning grounds that we still enjoy today.
In the fifties the house was occupied by the Brown Family who were in charge of installing electricity to the local valleys.
The house was sold in the early seventies and became a guest house and in 1982 became a hotel. Lake District Country Hotels bought the property in 1998 and restored many of the original features to give the hotel a country house charm.
Briery Wood are proud to be a dog friendly hotel - four legged friends are just as important to the hotel as two legged guests.
As a house guest you are welcome to stay in all our bedrooms. On arrival you will find a lovely soft cosy blanket for you to lay on, a water bowl, some scrummy biscuit treats to munch and a juicy bone to chew.
Being in the Lake District there are walks galore to choose from - whether you enjoy a stroll on the lake shore or prefer a more energetic romp up the fells, you won't be disappointed.
There is a one-off payment of £20 for furry friends.
