    The BEST Wedding Weekend

    We were fortunate enough to be able to book to hotel for a 2021 July wedding (just before COVID restrictions ended unfortunately!). The first thing I will say, is that the Wedding Coordinator Helen is phenomenal. She took so much stress out of the process and literally gave us a step by step guide to our day. All through the day she was everywhere all at once it seemed and everything ran flawlessly! We booked the hotel out exclusively and  I would highly recommend this for that extra special touch to your wedding. We had the run of the place and it was brilliant, the only people there were your guests and there was no where that was out of bounds or had people simply going to dine for the evening. The hotel is dog friendly and the views are spectacular, we got some simply stunning wedding photos as a result of the views the hotel boasts. It was worth every penny for the best weekend my wife and I have ever had.

    Everything was perfect

    Booked a 2 night 'just us' wedding package at the Merewood along with close family members. Cannot praise them enough. Everything was perfect for us both. The hotel itself is fabulous in a beautiful part of the Lakes. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Special mention must go to Helen the wedding planner. Helen went above and beyond to make our day a happy one. Thank you so much Helen from both myself and Joy. Special mention also to Mikey. Great guy. Great service. Again, thank you. All our family members were so happy with their rooms and restaurant. Our Bridal Suite (room number 2) was excellent. Food was also first class. Compliments to the chef for the Eggs Benedict at breakfast and the Lamb Henry at dinner. The lamb was a definite hit!! Definitely worth a return visit for a few nights rest and recuperation in such peaceful surroundings.
