About this property

Nestled on the shores of Lake Windermere and set within seven acres of beautiful, secluded gardens lies dog-friendly Briery Wood Country House Hotel in the heart of the Lake District. Built-in 1832 as staff lodgings for a local private house, the property has more recently undergone a major refurbishment, transforming the property into the luxury hotel it is today. Briery Wood is the perfect destination to relax and enjoy a country house atmosphere with all of the comforts of home. The informal and friendly service is so good, you’ll hardly notice it! Now sit back and unwind in one of the cosy lounges whilst enjoying a freshly brewed coffee or maybe a glass of chilled wine. All bedrooms are individually styled and provide a welcoming sanctuary after a day of exploring the Lake District with your four-legged friend. Choose from Superior, Family, Garden View and House rooms, all supplied with fragrant toiletries, fluffy towels and crisp linen to ensure a great night's sleep. Enjoy a taste of the fantastic local produce at the hotels AA Rosette-awarded restaurant - the perfect setting for a romantic meal for two! You can dine with your pooch in the cosy bar or lounge areas by special arrangement, and there is an abundance of pet-friendly pubs nearby if you fancy venturing out for food. Furry friends will love exploring the acres of private gardens and woodlands at Briery Wood. Take a dog-friendly cruise along Windermere, England’s longest lake, provided by Windermere Lake Cruises and enjoy the fabulous views. The hotel also provides maps for Wansfell and Troutbeck walks for further exploring with your trusty hound. 

Dine with Your Dog

Foodies will love dining in the AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant. Enjoy the very best local produce the Lake District has to offer from tender Herdwick lamb and spicy Cumberland sausage to freshly caught trout and Morecambe Bay potted shrimps, local asparagus and Cumbrian cheeses and chutneys. Guests may dine in bar or lounges with their four-legged friends by special arrangement or alternatively, your pooch may relax in your room whilst you dine in the restaurant. If you fancy venturing out for food, we recommend Wateredge Inn, Ambleside or Angel Inn where four-legged friends are welcome!
