Cragwood is a great place to stay with stunning views and easy access to the lake. Highly recommended! Customer service is impeccable and the food is just too good! Definitely great time to visit between May and August.

What a lovely hotel: good rooms; good plumbing; excellent (and varied) views of the lake with paths leading down to the waters' edge; lovely and very well cared-for gardens; and good-sized lounges/sitting-rooms. But the superlatives relate to the staff (wonderful warm Lancastrians and, as one has come to expect, incredibly kind and carrying immigrant workers - what would we do... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Craggwood hotel in June, we had a fantastic time here. We were very lucky with the weather and was able to visit local towns only a 5 and 10 minute drive away. The hotel is set in lovely grounds and the view of the lake is stunning. You can enjoy a glass... More

We recently stayed at Craggwood for a wedding and we will definitely be returning! Our room was beautiful and spacious leading to french doors with opened up into the immaculate grounds. The hotel is a short walk to Windermere lake and Windermere town centre, so there is lots to do. The grounds were a superb setting for the wedding and... More

My mum and I were at the hotel yesterday finalising details for our early September wedding, the staff went out of their way to help in every way from Lesley at reception, to Richard who spent lots of time with us, the Gardner chatting in the immaculate grounds and Phil who phoned first thing with an answer to a query....

My girlfriend's cousin got married here last weekend and I have to say as venues go this was fabulous. The location is brilliant - so close to the lake and only 7 mins drive back into Windermere town. The food was delicious as were the polite friendly staff. The hotel is swamped with history as an old mansion house subtly... More

Hotels like Cragwood do not come around too often. They deliver in all areas, the reception is warm & friendly, rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean, service is impeccable, the food is outstanding and would grace any Michelin Star restaurant. It's difficult to describe the whole experience, just go and try the Cragwood experience, you won't be disappointed.
