We came here for a friends wedding and Couldn't have asked for a more lovely hotel. All the staff are lovely and the food is fantastic. Beautiful hotel, lots of lovely traditional features, the grounds are stunning, the patio would be lovely for afternoon tea. Definitely recommended. Would love to return.

We have just returned home from another great stay at Merewood. The staff, food, accommodation were fabulous. The location is perfect for visiting nearby Grasmere, Ambleside and Bowness. We are looking forward to returning sometime soon.
