Right from our turning into the drive we were impressed! It was clearly a 'lovingly cared' for hotel. We were greeted at the door by the receptionist, with offers not just from her but all staff to help with our bags & not only shown to our room but given a tour of the hotel. ALL of the staff are...

Cragwood Hotel is a comfortable hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The beautiful grounds stretch down to the banks of Lake Windermere. There is a boat stop about a 5 minute walk away. The sitting rooms and bar look over the Lake. The restaurant dinner is a little pricey, but if it is of the same quality as breakfast, I'm...

A fantastic couple of days for our wedding. We were made to feel so welcome by the staff who were very helpful and organised.
