My partner found this hotel at the last minute and he couldn't have made a better choice. From the moment we arrived we knew we had found the ideal place to spend my birthday. The location was perfect set in a beautiful wood and gardens. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. They serve a five course... More

Merewood stands at the top of a winding lane surrounded by the grounds that are beautiful, peaceful, well maintained, but are also set at different levels, there are also some decent walks through woods for dogs. The entrance has a small porch (umbrellas provided), ideal for wet muddy wells. You then go into the entrance hall... More

The food was brilliant, the rooms were lovely, it was very clean, well organised, and there was not enough they could do for the Bride and Groom.... More

We had our wedding reception at Merewood and although we didn't stay overnight in the hotel, had a wonderful afternoon and evening there. Lucy was fantastic at arranging everything and keeping me up to date by email with preparations etc and the rest of the staff made the day perfect from beginning to end. The location of the hotel is... More

The only reason I gave 4/5 and not 5/5 is I love the sister hotel Cragwood a bit better.! Merewood has beautiful grounds and within easy walking distance to the centre of Windermere (2.5miles). Lovely bedroom and ensuite would recommend to anyone.
