Your Day

The Perfect Location 

Voted as one of the most picturesque and romantic destinations in the United Kingdom, there could be no place more beautiful to get married than the Lake District with its spectacular mountain scenery and gently rolling countryside.

In the midst of this natural beauty you will find Briery Wood Country House Hotel, an oasis where you can celebrate your big day exactly how you choose.

Set in the heart of the Lake District, in acres of secluded gardens, moments from Lake Windermere, Briery Wood Country House Hotel will provide the perfect setting for your perfect day. Whilst large enough to feel grand it is small enough to be intimate and relaxed. Creating an atmosphere that is informal, welcoming and really quiet special.

Your Special Day

We understand that every couple is individual and will have a different vision for their wedding.  So, whether you prefer to give your imagination free reign or are looking for creative inspiration, our experienced wedding coordinators are on hand every step of the way to help make your dreams come true and your day perfect in every way.

There is no formula or set package. Each wedding is unique and as individual as the bride and groom. Whether you choose from a civil ceremony in one of our stylish ceremony rooms or maybe a garden wedding in our beautiful gazebo we can accommodate your every need. Our landscaped grounds will provide a truly romantic backdrop for your wedding photographs.

For a truly exclusive experience why not enjoy exclusive use of this beautiful hotel….but not for an exclusive budget.  You can relax, enjoying the peace, tranquillity and intimacy, from the day you arrive, through your big day until the sumptuous breakfast the following morning.

Briery Wood can host 80 guests for a civil wedding, and can cater for 112 guests seated in two adjoining rooms for your wedding meal.

Food & Drink

Food & Drink

It's in the way ingredients are selected, prepared and combined. The way recipes are tried, refined then tried again. Our highly experienced chefs are on hand to talk through your ideas and provide mouth-watering inspiration as you plan the menu for your big day.

Using only the best seasonal and locally sourced ingredients our wedding breakfast menus give you a taste of just some of the dishes on offer – from simple classics to contemporary combinations.

No day would be complete without a celebratory tipple – whether it’s a glass of Pimms on arrival, a flute of champagne to toast the happy couple or a glass of the finest malt whiskey as the night winds down. We also have an impressive wine list to complement your wedding breakfast.

As the evening celebrations get underway, why not treat your guests to a ‘midnight snack’ of fine cheeses and Port, or for something a little out of the ordinary - mini fish and chips!

Your Wedding Cake

With many years’ experience baking and decorating beautiful wedding cakes our very own cake designer will work with you to produce a unique creation as individual as your wedding day itself.


Your Wedding Ceremony

Our civil ceremony license means you can enjoy the entire day without leaving the comfort of your surroundings.

Briery Wood has a number of stylish rooms available for civil wedding ceremonies. For a truly romantic setting we can also offer you exclusive use of our wedding gazebo, set within our beautifully landscaped gardens.
