The service is always excellent and the breakfasts are great. There is a nice warm feeling about the place and the type of people who stay there are very...

As others have mentioned the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The grounds are pretty, the breakfast good, the rooms clean, the bathroom looked new. So plenty of positives. However it's difficult to enjoy all these things when you barely get any sleep. We were in room 10. It's so warm in there, the radiators weren't on so it must...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and we were not disappointed. The staff were second to none and nothing was too much of an issue for them. The check-in was quick and without hassle.

Thank you for your kind review of the hotel.

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear how much the three of you enjoyed your stay with us. Our ground floor garden rooms are popular, especially for dog owners giving access, as they do, to the gardens directly from the room for any late night walkies that may be required. Our breakfast does offer a decent variety...

On being shown our room (9) we had to complain as it was tiny and over the kitchen with a constant noise of the fans. It fell far below value for money. We complained and were shown another much larger room (16) away from the kitchen but with a view of a brickwall!! Definitely expensive for what we got and...

Thank you for your review of the hotel. I'm sorry to hear of your issues with the rooms. Room 9 is one of our smaller rooms, though it is well appointed with all the facilities of our other rooms.

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.
