We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Cragwood - our first visit. An all round excellent experience. Staff all very welcoming, smiling & friendly & the kitchen particularly impressive. Lovely setting. We'll be back.

We got married here, and bought along 7 members of our family. It is beautiful, tasteful and very romantic. The building itself is very intimate and has a homely feel. Classy!
I cannot wait to visit again and take our daughter to see where my happiest place in the world is!
Thank you for making fabulous day, truly amazing

Just returned from a 3 night break again. This comfortable country house hotel greets you like a long lost family member and the hotel and staff were once again great. Witnessed the professionalism of the staff when dealing with an exceptionally (in my opinion only)difficult and obnoxiously loud guest. All I can say is well done and how professional! I would not have maintained such composure or calm! Just on line now looking for dates to rebook....love it!

A lovely hotel with a great location that has wonderful views. The room was big, well appointed but the decor condition was beginning to look a little tired. The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent with all the usual choices, but the evening meal was as good as it gets. Don't book in to this hotel without experiencing at least one evening dinner. You won't regret it.

We stayed here for two nights. Ideal place for a walking break in the lakes. We could not fault the hotel. The place is very clean, rooms spacious and well equipped. The garden and grounds are lovely with views over Windermere. We did not eat dinner at the restaurant as we like to try out local places but the breakfast was very good, including the fresh fruit! Special mention for all the staff, who were most friendly and helpful. This is how a hotel should be run. Highly recommended.

We stayed only for one night to attend a meeting in the hotel. What an absolute gem of a hotel it was. Oozing luxury from the moment you walk through the front door into the reception. Check in was very quick and we were then escorted up to our room being shown different aspects of the hotel on the way. A very spacious room with a wonderful view out over Lake Windermere. As I was admiring the view I spotted a deer foraging in the tree line. What a way to start the day. Staff were all very efficient and one in particular stood out above the rest. Step forward Scottish Andrew. Personality supreme and nothing was too much trouble for this man.Food in the evening was superb with a set menu for us of Scallops then smoked chicken consommé followed by roast loin of venison and then a fine selection of sweets then coffee and the hotels own chocolates to finish before our party retired to a private room for the evening. I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel to couples and families or anyone who wants a good quiet nights sleep

Room Tip: rooms at the rear of the hotel have views of the lake and gardens too. Best chance of seeing any wil...

Stayed here for two nights 13th-14th April. What a great find, really pretty place with lovely surroundings. Our room no14 was big, very clean, great telly, and brilliant lighting for reading at bedtime! All hotels should learn from this. The breakfast was excellent, great choice, fresh ingredients, attentive staff. The views from the hotel are amazing with beautiful lounges to sit and enjoy.
We will be returning again in the future as it is now our firm favourite.
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
