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

Came across this wonderful hotel by chance on an unplanned detour through the Lake District on our way to Scotland. The glorious April sunshine helped, but even allowing for that we were really impressed by the friendly welcome, the excellent lunch on the terrace overlooking Lake Windermere and the glorious views. Based on our brief visit we would like to... More

Following our perfect laid back 'Just Us' (and the dogs) wedding at Cragwood in July 2014, for which the service, attention and whole experience was second to none, we revisited for a quick stay earlier this month. Yet again the entire experience was an absolute pleasure. From the moment we walked in (immediately being remembered from last year) nothing was... More

We have just enjoyed a special family weekend at Cragwood Country House Hotel where our son got married. From the warm and helpful welcome, comfortable and exceptionally clean rooms, superb food and a ceremony and wedding breakfast that was faultless, our stay was something we will remember for the rest of our lives. The staff worked unobtrusively and seemed to... More

We spent just three days in the Lake District and despite the weather, it was a wonderful trip. The hotel staff were always friendly and accommodating. The food was beyond excellent and the atmosphere was intimate and relaxed. The hotel is beautifully located on the lake and made for a very peaceful getaway. 5 star!

We got married on 11th March 2015 at the Cragwood & just wanted to write to say how beautiful the hotel & the staff were. Both Phil & Stacey & the rest of the staff could not do enough for us & helped us enjoy the best day of our lives. The hotel is stunning & the rooms & food... More
