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 4*. 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 4* 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.

Briery Wood 4*

Briery Wood 4* 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 guests 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.

Relax and enjoy comfortable interiors, friendly service and spectacular landscapes throughout your stay at the Briery Wood Hotel. Feel completely at home in one of the cosy lounges and sip on a freshly brewed coffee before you head out to discover the impressive natural scenery of the surrounding lakes and fells.

Some services may incur additional charges, payable locally.
