A massive thank you
Venue Service

By Tom and Emily, on 30 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Nov 2018

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!

The day was everything we wanted and more!

We had a small, intimate wedding at Merewood and we all had an absolutely brilliant time and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Helen 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 ?? All in all, the day was everything we wanted and much more. We felt we had first class hospitality in a beautiful hotel and location, we could not have asked more from the staff who helped us during our stay. Also, a special thanks to Helen for making all of this possible and for organising everything for us, it really was perfect. We really felt like we were getting a little slice of luxury for a very affordable cost. We will be planning on visiting again in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Merewood for weddings and holidays.

My wedding day was absolutely perfect
Venue Service

By Caitlin McAlister, on 26 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

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.

Perfect in every way.

By Helen and Graham, on 25 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

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.
