I booked Merewood for a weekend away. It looked pretty impressive on the website but actually it's so much better than the pictures. Absolutely beautiful manor with log fires In the bar and reception area. The reception was actually one of my favourite places to sit next to the log fire and we had our afternoon tea and prosecco there....

We stayed on a one night deal and wasn't let down. Amazing room overlooking the lake and mountains. Cream tea was lovely and at night we had the meal in the restaurant which was stunning. The meal is £45 per head and worth every penny, house wine is £20 per bottle which isn't bad considering its a hotel. We will...

Firstly, we never knew that this hotel was hidden away here! We visit this area several times a year, passing in the car and most surprisingly on foot! A long winding driveway leads upwards past horned cattle, through woodland with deer (we saw them), waterfall fountain and sweeping gardens. There is plenty of parking available. This grand house is beautiful...

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed so many aspects of your stay and I couldn’t agree more about the building being ‘beautiful’.

Great location with stunning views of lake Windermere. Bought a Travelzoo deal for my partner's Christmas present and we were not disappointed by the standard of service, decor and excellent food. We had the 5-course evening meal which although expensive, was probably the best fine dining meal I have eaten. The chefs evidently go out of their way to provide...

Fantastic hotel in every way! The Library, Drawing Room, Bar, Dining Room and Reception were all beautifully decorated in keeping with the age of the property, with real fires which were a grateful bonus considering the bad weather outside. The views were to die for. We had a sparkling Cream Tea which was lovely and we stayed in Room 11,...
