A peaceful Lake District hideaway near the banks of Windermere, with AA Rosette dining and acres of beautiful gardens – breakfast, cream tea and optional dinner included

Warm your soul and ease your mind with a stay on Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, the inspiration for William Wordsworth’s famed poetry and holiday home of Beatrix Potter. Close to the idyllic town of Ambleside, where ancient woodland walks weave through wild, untamed landscapes and gift shops and restaurants pepper the town's bustling centre, you will find the traditionally cosy Briery Wood Country House Hotel.

Set within seven acres of beautiful private gardens, this charming country house is decorated in old-world style throughout, with rich, patterned fabrics, wood-burning stoves, soft lighting and friendly service. To top it all off, this hideaway is home to an AA Rosette-awarded restaurant and serves fine wines, local ales and a selection of warming whiskeys, perhaps best enjoyed in the lounge bar by one of the well-tended fires.

Briery Wood Country House Hotel is in a prime position for some of the most adventurous walks in the UK if you fancy wandering around the stunning Lake Windermere or scrambling up the rocky peaks to take on famous mountain hikes. Ambleside, and the surrounding villages and hamlets, offer museums, churches and historical landmarks aplenty, or you can easily take the ferry to Bowness if you fancy venturing a little further.
