    Excellent from start to finish.

    We eloped to Briery Wood on the 31/08/21 with the just us package which was everything and more than what we expected. The staff are super friendly and make the whole experience absolutely magical. The food is out of this world and the hotel and grounds are picture perfect. We were lucky enough to get a sunny day so we had our ceremony outside in the gazebo which we got to decorate ourselves exactly how we wanted it. We didn’t have to compromise because we eloped at Briery Wood, truly magical.

    The perfect day

    Thank you to everyone who made our wedding so perfect. I remember at the beginning of 2018 when we first visited the hotel looking at venues, the second we stepped inside Briery we knew it was where we were going to celebrate the most important day of our lives. The main thing that stood out then and still does now is every member of staff who works there. You are all so friendly and go out of your way to help and make guests feel at home. Special mention to Tracey & Dan who were fantastic on the day and were on hand throughout to ensure everything went smoothly. All my guests commented on how nice the hotel was, how amazing the food was and how nice the staff were. You really did make the day so perfect so thank you so much.

    The most wonderful, perfect experience

    My husband & I married at Briery Wood on the 19th December with the Just Us package. It was the most wonderful, perfect experience made even more amazing by the wonderful staff who not only were our witnesses but also went above and beyond to make our day special. Our evening meal was outstanding and we will definitely be back for a meal again. Would recommend anyone marrying/staying at this wonderful hotel but have to say the staff make it memorable as they are so lovely.

    A beautiful home from home

    We got married here at the weekend and what an amazing time we had! All of our guests left happy and are still contacting us to say how wonderful the staff were, how amazing the food was, how beautiful the surroundings were. We had the entire hotel to ourselves all weekend, it's a beautiful home from home. Roger and Lisa were incredible to work with from the very beginning, also David, Danny, and Madga were all wonderful too. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Beautiful memories to last a lifetime! Thank you so much!

    We want to do it all again

    We can’t thank the staff at Briery Wood enough for making our Wedding weekend in September so special! The planning and organisation, room allocation, food, venue, grounds, cleanliness, friendliness ......I could go on and on, was all AMAZING! All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day/ weekend and we just want to do it all again. We want to also say a special thank you to Roger (manager) and Lisa (wedding co-ordinator) for going the extra mile to make our day perfect. We had around 70 guests at our wedding and the venue size was just perfect. I can’t recommend the Briery Wood enough as a wedding venue and we can’t wait to stay with you again

    Fantastic

    Thank you so much to the staff for making our wedding day one to remember. Absolutely fantastic with how smoothly our day went.
    We managed to get married outside, which was beautiful.

    I can’t thank you enough. Roger the manager was fantastic and made sure that I got my dream wedding. All our guests loved our day and thought it was really good that we had hired the venue from Friday to Sunday for just our guests. Thank you again!

    We coudn't have asked for more

    My husband and I recently got married at this picturesque venue. We stayed from Friday to Monday and everything about our special day (and our stay) was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff were all welcoming and went above and beyond for their guests. We really liked the fact that all the staff that worked on our Wedding Day came to find us at the end of their shifts and congratulated us and thanked us for letting them be a part of it. The food was wonderful. We would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to get married or to enjoy a peaceful getaway in a friendly, relaxed environment. Thanks for making our day so special. We will be returning next year for our anniversary!

    The wedding of our dreams

    Me and my new husband celebrated our wedding here the same weekend as the royals and what a weekend it was! Every single part of the Lakeland package we chose was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an authentic Lake District wedding. Their staff and management at the venue are all amazing, nothing was too much trouble and all my guests spoke highly of the venue and the experience we shared. The food is absolutely amazing and the way they catered for any dietary requirements was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Thank you for hosting us for the wedding of our dreams.

    Intimate venue with amazing food and very helpful

    We chose the brierywood hotel due to the intimacy of the venue, location on the shore of Windermere and the amazing local menu offered with the Lakeland package.

    The staff were very helpful from the start of planning our wedding; helping us throughout the months running up to the wedding day with our questions.

    At the hotel you have the ability to book out the whole hotel which made our day feel even more special as it meant our family and friends could mingle and enjoy the surrounding area over a weekend.

    The staff were fantastic on the day and had everything set up and ready to go.
    The hotel is very kid friendly and didn't even mind some of the younger children playing dens with the lounge furniture.

    The food was fantastic with a brilliant breakfast choice for everyone including vegetarians and people with allergies. The bar menu choices were great too.

    The Lakeland package worked for us as it gave people not from Cumbria the opportunity to try local food and drink.

    We would definitely recommend this as a wedding venue.
