This was our second stay at Cragwood with a group of friends and it was once again a very enjoyable experience. The only thing that let us down this year was the weather, which meant we could not take advantage of the terrace for our pre dinner drinks and canapés. Our room had lovely views over the lake and was... More

My only complaint was that the fire doors between our room and the next were paper thin. You'd think that the stone of the building that separated the rooms would keep all sound out, but that small place where they put these doors let all the sound through. Luckily we only had one night with loud neighbors. Everything else about... More

Wow, what a beautiful hotel. Stayed all weekend with a wedding party, hadn't been here before, and loved every minute. Unbelievable views on two sides to Windemere, and peaks too numerous to mention all around. The staff were so friendly from the minute we stepped in the door, to when we sadly had to leave. Food amazing, and the atmosphere... More

My daughter got married a week ago in the gazebo at Cragwood. From the time we arrived until we left, nothing was too much trouble. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food was lovely. My room was very clean and comfortable and the surroundings beautiful. A second visit is a must.
