Having been in the hotel business for many years, I am infamous for picking holes in hotels that I choose to visit. On this occasion, I was staying at Cragwood for a family wedding, and it was fabulous. Right from our arrival (which was much earlier than expected) our lovely room with views to die for, was ready for us,... More

Stayed for 3 nights for our annual reunion of friends. There couldn't have been a greater contrast with our experience last year at Thornton Hall Hotel in Cheshire where we were on starvation rations. At Cragwood the location on Windermere was stunning, the individual rooms delightful (no row of corporate lookalikes), the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient but above... More

Stayed at Cragwood for three nights, it is a gorgeous hotel with stunning well cared for grounds. The views are spectacular, taking coffee on the terrace looking over the lake was just perfect after a hearty and very tasty four course dinner. Staff were all friendly and keen to make sure our stay was the best possible for me my... More

Nine couples have a reunion every year at a different location. This year Cragwood Hall was chosen and what a good choice it was! We had our own private dining room, bar and lounge and separate menus each day.(Three dinners and three breakfasts) The service was excellent, the staff happy and friendly and the food was of the highest order....

We had an absolutely magical wedding at the Cragwood. With the help of Phil (who went above and beyond to ensure the day was as we wanted) & the staff we got married in the Gazebo despite windy conditions! The sun came out for the photos and we had a gorgeous cream tea after the ceremony .....followed later by a... More

This hotel is a little hidden gem in beautiful surroundings on the side of Lake Windermere. From the moment you arrive it's like coming home and the staff are amazing and very welcoming. If you like country hotels then this is one you must go to.We will be going back soon.

We stayed at Cragwood for a short stay recently using b&b and evening meal. Lovely location on the banks of Windermere with a short walk through the gardens to the lake side. Cragwood has a traditional charm, with open fires in the lounges, pleasant and helpful staff and well appointed bedrooms. Evening meals were delicious with the menu changing each... More

What an absolutely perfect venue for a wedding. Gorgeous grounds, lovely rooms and scrummy food! I stayed in Room 3 which has one of the best views of the grounds. Perfect size for me but could be a bit of a squeeze for a couple although there's so much to do you won't be in the room very much. The... More
