We stayed here 21st and 22nd March and got a great deal. We had dinner on the 1st night which was excellent! Good beer on tap, friendly staff and in a good location between Ambleside and Windermere. We were told we would not have a large room before we arrived but found the room large enough for us both. It... More

The hotel is perfectly placed for exploring. In a lovely quiet location, very pretty area. Staff were all very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was tasty and filling, perfect for a day of wandering. Rooms very lovely, decorated to a good, quite luxurious standard.

A lovely country house hotel in a great location between Windermere and Ambleisde.Walks from the door and on a bus route to get back if needed! Spotlessly clean, both our bedroom and communal areas. Comfortable king sized bed and well appointed bathroom with plenty of hot water. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the evening meal- good... More

We stayed here for a two night b&b with change from £100..!!! Friendly family service with good value for money. Ideal location for a gentle walk into Ambleside or Windermere. No lake view but certainly would go again. Even in a cold wet winters weekend beautiful. I can imagine that in summer the private rear gardens would be charming...

This is a quaint country house hotel, set in lovely grounds, that we are surprised is classed as only 2*. The decor in some parts may appear a bit tired, but did not in anyway spoil the comfort and relaxation experienced at the Briery Wood, The staff could not do enough for you and were always so friendly. Our room... More

My wife and I (and Eddie, the dog) thoroughly enjoyed a special offer break (£99 for two nights) at the Briery Wood where found all the staff to be friendly, cheerful and helpful. The garden room we had booked (at Eddie's personal request!) was roomy, clean with a large and extremely comfortable bed, and had a door giving out onto... More

Surprisingly impressed with this establishment. The rooms are not large but adequate and spotlessly clean. I have noted some negative comments about the small tv's but this wasn't an issue for us. Very difficult to find any negative aspect to this hotel . . but if I had to pick something it might be signs of wear on the stair... More

My friend and I took advantage of a Travel Zoo offer for a 2 night break at Briery Wood. We had a very pleasant time. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and the food for both breakfast and dinner was excellent. The twin room, although small, was very comfortable with big fluffy towels, good quality toiletries and lots... More
