Why We Love This Hotel

  • This is a "traditional" (The AA) Lake District property, less than 10 minutes' walk from the shores of Lake Windermere
  • It's set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens and mature woodland
  • The AA awards the hotel's restaurant two Rosettes for its "creative fine dining"

Built in 1812 from stone quarried in the hotel grounds, Merewood Country House Hotel is a traditional property with an "enviable location" (The AA). The hotel is set in woodland that's roamed by red deer and is noted for its multi-trunked chestnut tree.

Brockhole on Windermere and the lake shore are a less than 10 minutes' walk away. You can visit the manor house, which contains the Lake District National Park Visitor Centre, take a treetop trek or hire bikes and boats (charges apply for activities and parking). The town of Windermere is a 5-minute drive away. Bowness-on-Windermere is a few minutes further, and is known for its winding streets and piers, from which cruise boats chug across the lake.

Merewood Country House Hotel has ornate wood panelling, original fireplaces and stained-glass windows. The 2-AA-Rosette restaurant has two dining rooms, and some bedrooms have views of the lake. Dogs can stay for an extra £20 per dog, per stay, and are greeted with water bowls and treats.

We have previously been to this hotel and found it ideal for a night away with the Lake District on its doorstep. The staff are exceptional and the whole experience came up to our expectations again.

Lovely country hotel, warm and cosy. The staff were very helpful, friendly and service professional. Food really good and choice of lounges with open fires to relax with a drink. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and warm, would definitely recommend it.

Great reception, friendly staff and lovely open fire roaring away in the main reception hall to add to the ambience. We had an upgrade to a room looking over the lake, which was a nice surprise. Dining at the hotel is in a grand room with great service and hight standard of food. Absolutely no complaints, only praise.

This was a last minute booking. We have stayed at nearby hotels before but will certainly choose Merewood in future. We were upgraded to a Lakeview room which was excellent. We particularly loved the 3 lounges and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
