About

Set in an elevated position and overlooking Windermere, England’s longest and most beautiful lake, you will find Merewood Country House Hotel.

Dating back to 1812, the hotel has retained much of its historical charm with many of the original features lovingly restored, including the panelled hall and reception.

As soon as you step through the front door of this beautiful country house, you’ll discover an oasis of comfort, warmth and relaxation.

Steeped in elegance and history, this magnificent house is big enough to feel grand but still small enough to be intimate and relaxed too. The beautiful interiors and fabulous Lake District views make wonderful backdrops for your photographs and our award winning service and food ensures that your wedding day will be the best of your life.

Just to say a massive thank you for all your work for our wedding last weekend. It ran so smoothly from start to finish. The wonderful venue and brilliant weather obviously helped but the great organisation, hard work and little touches really made it perfect. We had so many comments about the fantastic food and about how great all the staff were. Sorry we didn't get individual names but all the staff were amazingly courteous and helpful so please pass on our thanks to all involved. 

We look forward to coming back for many anniversary visits in future years!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for making our day so fantastic. We all had an absolutely brilliant time and wouldn’t have changed a thing. You and the team made us feel relaxed and comfortable before and during the ceremony which was fab and despite the fact that there were other guests in the hotel, we felt as though we were the only people there. 

The afternoon tea was beautiful, and we loved that you had packed up the leftovers for us - much enjoyed by all on the journey home!

The meal in the Arboreal was absolutely phenomenal ... some of the best food we have ever had - we are all still talking about it. Congratulations to the team for their recent award win too ... we definitely agree it was well deserved

We live locally, and we have always wanted to have our wedding here, long before we even got engaged, so when we started planning our wedding, the Merewood was our first (and last!) port of call. From the first show around, to finalising the itinerary and helping with last-minute guest changes up to the day before, Helen and Rob were absolutely brilliant and helped to keep my stress levels to a minimum, Helen especially couldn’t have been more accommodating, and I am so grateful. The venue is blessed with stunning views of Lake Windermere and the Lakeland fells. The hotel itself was large enough to hold our 100 daytime guests and 150+ guests in the evening whilst still maintaining a rustic charm, with a beautiful main room and quaint smaller rooms (the Library and the Drawing Room). The bridal suite is gorgeous and boasts unbelievable views of the lake and surrounding fells through its large bay windows. Waking up there was truly a pleasure that my husband and I would happily repeat on a daily basis. As for the day itself, the staff were absolutely amazing from serving breakfast to myself and my bridesmaids in the bridal suite, to calming my nerves and making sure the guests left the hotel on time, to the delicious food and MCing the whole day – it went without a hitch. I have been inundated with compliments from all of the guests who attended on the beauty of the venue, the staff and the quality of the food. I want to say a massive thank you to the whole team, you are superstars! My wedding day was absolutely perfect, and I can’t thank you all enough. I would not hesitate to recommend Merewood to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

Our wedding weekend was perfect in every way. Your dedication and attention to detail meant that we didn't worry once about what was going on. We had a lot of compliments from our guests on the food and the obvious effort being put in by all of the front of house team. We couldn't have asked for more.

I got married at the Merewood Country House Hotel on the 30th March,
I remember booking with them around 18 months ago and agree to this day it was the best decision we ever made.

Helen and the team have been incredible for the entire time, we have been in constant contact with the team and Helen has ensured everything was arranged and I had nothing to worry about.
The food at the Merewood was so beautifully done and the whole wedding party agreed.
The wedding day couldn’t have ran any better and I didn’t have to worry about a thing and we truly believe this was down to Helen and the rest of the Merewood team!

The dedication from the team really shone on Saturday and I have had endless comments off guests saying how helpful the team was.


The Merewood is in a fantastic location with amazing views, it’s a beautiful place inside too. I would 100% recommend to Merewood to anyone looking forward to getting married as we truly believe it wouldn’t have been as good anywhere else.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding here on the 27th February 2019 and what can I say amazing. From start to finish. Staff amazing, venue amazing. Magical stay, can’t wait to visit again xx

My daughter got married here on Saturday 23rd February 2019. Absolutely faultless. Beautiful hotel, breathtaking views. The whole day was run by the wedding planner Helen and the amazing staff. Can't recommend it highly enough. All the stress and build up to the day was taken away from the minute we set foot inside the hotel. The staff are a credit to this hotel, each and every one of them. Thank you soooo much for the most amazing weekend. X

Last weekend we got married at the Merewood and it was the best day of our lives. A massive part of this was because of the Merewood and their fantastic staff. The location has the most amazing views, rooms and event space. Due to the outstanding nature of the hotel the photos that were taken on our damp wedding day came out beautifully. The reason we had such an amazing wedding day was due to the staff - they were faultless. Professionalism was shown at every stage of the process, they were fantastic at making our day everything that we wanted and gave amazing advice in the build up to the wedding. Helen and Lucy were incredible in helping us plan the wedding and so helpful on the weekend of the wedding. The wedding day was effortless for us as the wedding team guided us through and was working so hard behind the senes so we could just enjoy our day. We can’t say enough how incredible the staff were - it was the attention to detail that showed how professional each and everyone of them are. Little things like one of the waiting staff setting aside some canapés for my new wife and I while we where having photos taken to make sure we didn’t go hungry. On the topic of food, the wedding breakfast was some of the best food we have ever eaten and to provide such high quality food for that many people was truly amazing. If you are thinking of getting married in The Lakes there is no better place to do it then the Merewood hotel and we have 120+ friends and family who will whole heartedly agree.
Thank you again for making our Wedding day the best ever!

Mr & Mrs Winter
Yesterday is a day we will both never forget and really showed the amount of hard work and dedication that gets put in by the team at Merewood, especially yourself, as everything ran as perfect as possible and was everything we had wished for and more. Yesterday was an absolute credit to you and the whole team at the Merewood!
I have had comments off most people about the fabulous venue, food and service!
Again, thank you so much!


Hannah and David
Firstly, the hotel and grounds and general feel of the place is superb! It was beyond anything myself and David imagined. We have stayed in several hotels and The Merewood by far is best, most personable and just truly spectacular we have ever come across.

The staff, each and every member really take pride and enjoyment in their job, nothing was too much trouble. It was so clear you all wanted to make every person’s visit memorable. There wasn’t one member of staff whom I came across whom wasn’t fantastic! You are all such as asset and I think you should be paid millions of pounds!

We cannot thank & recommend Merewood enough. We had our wedding here on Saturday 20/10/18 & from the minute we arrived on Friday to leaving late Sunday they couldn't do enough. All our guests commented what a beautiful place it is & how every need was catered for. They made our wedding day absolutely amazing & we will live with those memories forever. Helen is an amazing lady & a massive credit to the hotel. The food was outstanding & our guests were blown away. They have a group of truly talented chefs. We will definitely be back. Thanks to everyone who helped make our day so special.
