The Merewood has that amazing ability to make you feel you're in a home from home, whether it's your first or 100th visit. For me, it's the latter but I hadn't been for a couple of years and I was more than happy to find that the Merewood's individual charm, hospitality, amazing service and mind blowing food has not changed....

We have just spent our first Christmas in an hotel and that came about purely from our conviction that the Merewoodt Country House Hotel, near Windermere, at Christmas, was unmissable!Having stayed four times previously in the space of just 18 months, we have come to feel almost part of the 'family', with personal and warm service, that extends over and...

It is a few years since I last visited the Merewood so I was really looking forward to having Sunday lunch there and I was not disappointed. The Amuse Bouche was a delicious Jerusalem Artichoke Veloute and I followed this with Goats Cheese Pannecotta, which was very delicate. I had chosen the Roast Beef with all its accompaniments for my... More

I have been to the Merewood on a great number of occasions, including twice to stay overnight, but yesterday was for the first Sunday lunch out for 2015. The weather was appalling with torrential rain and high winds which made the welcome we received on arrival even more pleasing. The food as always was delicious. We started with Jerusalem artichoke... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Merewood Hotel. It is a beautiful hotel with fantastic decor throughout; one of the nicest hotels I have visited for sometime. Luxury, grand - yet relaxing, informal and certainly not stuffy ! Very good standard of room and bathroom, all the necessities included. The staff couldn't be more helpful they were a... More

I don't normally write hotel reviews but I couldn't help but say how perfect this hotel was for me, my boyfriend and our 10month old puppy on her first holiday! The weather this weekend was hurrendous but the hotel was the perfect haven especially with its roaring log fires in every room! The hotel is super dog friendly and our... More

Booked for the New Year Package with the family. 10 of us altogether. My hubby and I had room no 2 which was fantastic, extremely big and a beautiful lake view. I can only say that the service from Lorna and her staff for the 4 days we were there was wonderful. They looked after our every need, the food,... More

A large group of us had previously gone elsewhere in the Lakes for New Year's Eve, but decided to try somewhere different this time. Over the phone the lady was very helpful and upbeat about arrangements, sending us the menu in advance. In the event, a group of 6 of us turned up on a horrible wet and windy New... More
