We had a fantastic time at this hotel. The location is amazing. Very close to hiking trails, beautiful views of the lake from a beautiful garden, right next to brick hole pier if you want to take a boat ride. The property itself is slightly dated, but very confortable with lots of lounging areas throughout. We spent most of our... More

We had the 'just us wedding' here a couple of weeks ago and loved every minute there. The staff are all really friendly and helpful, they were there when needed but didn't hang over us - they seemed to know the right time to come back in, etc. We stayed in the older part of the hotel (which is definitely...

This was our first time a) in this area and b) using a dog friendly hotel. We could not have chosen better for both. It is in an absolutely beautiful location, with Lake Windemere just down the private path. The room was large with a terrace. Perfect for taking the dog in and out. Perfectly clean to the highest standard.... More

We drove down from Newcastle, a really nice drive :) The hotel itself was about 10 mins in a taxi (£8) away from Bownes town centre... where we had an AMAZING steak (The Albert). The staff at the reception were very... More

This was our first stay at Cragwood and most certainly won't be our last. We stayed in March and didn't expect good weather so looked for a hotel where we could spend time lounging by the fire and Cragwood lived up to our expectations. The hotel also has stunning views across Lake Windermere and a lovely lawned garden to the... More

We came across the Cragwood quite by chance during a recent road trip from Wales to Scotland. We read the reviews beforehand and booked online an hour or so before arriving. We arrived late in the day, around 6.30pm ish and Reception was un-manned. We rang the bell and after a few mins a lovely young chap came and checked... More

We always look forward to returning to the Cragwood. The staff are always welcoming, the food is always delicious and the rooms so comfortable. As the weather was warm and sunny we enjoyed the spectacular views along Lake Windermere from the private terrace. Birdsong was the only sound, bliss ! It's a fantastic hotel and such a relaxing treat to... More

Revisited Cragwood for our 13th Wedding Anniversary. Having married here in 2002, we look forward to returning every year to celebrate. From the moment you arrive to the minute you leave, you're looked after incredibly well. The highlight is always dinner, the food is amazing and worthy of a Michelin Star or two. We look forward to celebrating many more... More
