Reviewed 18 February 2014

We spent just one night at Cragwood but we will definitely be back. It was great to be in such lovely surroundings and be able to take our dog (and child) with us. The hotel staff make you feel right at home and with the big settees, roaring fires and fabulous lake views it would hard not too relax and enjoy your time there. Our four course evening meal was delicious and excellent value for money, but the real thing that sold it for us was that we were allowed to leave our well behaved dog in our room while we had our meal and afterwards our dog could join us in the lounge along with some other well behaved doggy guests. A lot of other so called dog friendly hotels insist on your dog being left in the car while you have your meal, which on a cold dark winter evening, is not something we are prepared to do. So well done Cragwood and see you again soon.

Room Tip: Book early to get the best Lake view rooms

I say weird in the nicest way as this is a wonderfully quirky hotel. The staff are a delight, you get from one side of the hotel to the other via the kitchen passage where all the waiting and cooking staff give you a cheery grin. Nothing is too much trouble and the atmosphere is relaxed. There are some fantastically attractive places for lounging with lake views in the old part of the hotel with papers and a real fire.

There's an old side and a new side and to be honest they don't really match but it doesn't matter because it's warm and comfy and in a fantastic location with beautiful grounds and walks up to Troutbeck straight from the door.

We will definitely stay again. Thanks Cragwood team

We can't recommend this place enough. We had a fantastic weekend. Everything was just so well organised, by a great team. Great friendly staff. Helpful, funny. They were just there for us. Made our daughters wedding all we could have wished for and more.
Well done all

We recently spent a couple of nights at the Cragwood. It was our first visit and we thought it was wonderful. Log fires, fabulous views, delightful bedroom and excellent and friendly service.
Will definitely return.

We stayed at Cragwood for 2 nights and enjoyed dinner at the hotel on both nights. We noticed that many of the local restaurants were closed in January and so decided to book dinner at the hotel. The food was absolutely phenomenal and well worth the £35 pp for 4 courses. We would expect to pay and have paid much more for similar quality. The hotel grounds and lounges are stunning with real, open fires being a very welcome sight after a long walk. I must also mention the fantastic service we received. Every member of staff we met was lovely and genuinely couldn't do enough for us.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we cannot wait to return.

Just arrived home after 4 day stay at this lovely comfortable Country House Hotel.

Wonderful setting with views of the lake and the impressive Hills and peaks. The food is first class and the staff are extremely attentive. Cosy lounges and log fires a bonus.

We will certainly be visiting again and recommending to all our friends and family.

Thank you to all who work so hard to achieve the above.
