We got married at the Cragwood in April and stayed from Friday till Sunday. Everything about the hotel was superb. The grounds and views are stunning and the building is beautiful, there is a terrace and bowling green at the back overlooking Lake Windermere that is ideal for sitting with a relaxing drink and enjoying the view, of for entertaining 100 guests!
The food was impeccable, from the bar snacks to the wedding breakfast and evening buffet. We were amazed at the high standard, quality and presentation. What made it for us was the staff, they were the friendliest and most helpful we have ever experienced, making our stay so enjoyable and our wedding day flow so smoothly. We could not thank the manager Philip enough. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay too and some have already planned to return. We will definitely be going back for our first anniversary.
The hotel also has 1 night stays available which can be difficult to find in the Lake District as most have 2 night minimum stay.

Spent 3 nights here last month. Staff welcoming and helpful Food delicious. Ideal for walking however rather isolated if this isn't your thing. Buses pass the bottom of the road either to Ambleside or Windermere . Grounds down to the Lake which would be lovely in summer however we unfortunately had gale force winds which made the Lake look like a rough sea!
Rooms quite adequate and comfortable with all usual amenities
Would return when next in the Lakes

Room Tip: Ask for Lake view we overlooked the car park !

4 couples vacation visiting London, Paris, Lucerne, and the Lakes. This was our best experience! The staff was excellent and personable for our 3 night stay. Rooms (2 upstairs/2 first floor) were great and serviced each morning while we were at breakfast. The multiple sitting rooms and alcoves provided privacy and were ideal for our group as we reviewed the day's excursions over a "Pint" from one of the two hotel bars. The hotel gardens and grounds were captivating and superbly maintained. Although the hotel was fully booked, it was quiet and we were treated like we were the only residents. The staff made us feel special! The food in the hotel is excellent - we ate in the hotel two of the three nights we stayed in the Lakes. Plenty to do and see at the hotel with garden trails, lawn game area, and boat house. We will be back!

Room Tip: Let the staff know your needs. All rooms were nic

Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a literary tour of England. Our guide booked the entire hotel for our group and I can't say enough good things about the place. The food was superb - 5 star! We Americans were expecting the English food to be bland and boring - boy, were we wrong. The grounds of the hotel are magnificent. We would come back!

We have just spent 5 nights at Cragwood and have to say that it it a wonderful place. It has everything you could want for a relaxing stay. The hotel itself is in very good order (our bathroom whilst nice, top quality fittings, could have done with a little TLC) and the building is set in beautiful grounds right on the shore of Lake Windermere. The staff are some of the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered and the food in the restaurant is nothing short of superb with a menu to suit all tastes. We will definitely be coming back here again.
