Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Briery Wood Country House Hotel is a 19th-century property just a stone's throw from the shores of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake.
You can hire a rowing boat from Low Wood Watersports Centre, which is an 8-minute walk away, and paddle along to one of the jetties for a spot of lunch in a nearby village.
The New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and nearby National Trust car park are a 20-minute drive away, and mark the starting point of The Langdale Pikes walk. With steep climbs and dramatic descents, the trail passes Dungeon Ghyll -- a deep ravine with a 60-foot waterfall, referenced by William Wordsworth in his poem "The Idle Shepherd Boy". Loughrigg Fell is a 14-minute drive away and has impressive views of Great Langdale. Troutbeck village, with its stone cottages and emerald-green valley, is an 8-minute drive away.
The hotel restaurant holds an AA Rosette and has a home-grown, local-is-best philosophy; expect dishes like Herdwick lamb, freshly caught salmon from Cartmel and mature cheeses smoked over Cumbrian oak, as well as traditional Sunday lunch.
Dogs can come along for an extra £20 per dog, per stay (payable to the hotel direct), and they are given a welcome pack, a blanket and treats on arrival. All 23 bedrooms have a TV, a radio, an alarm clock, a hair dryer and a telephone. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
