Cragwood Country House Hotel is in the most beautiful location of any hotel I have visited. Even in autumn the rainy Lake District is stunning and Cragwood offers views of the most incredible sunsets over lake Windermere.

If you are planning your special wedding day, be cautious trying to book their "just us" small wedding package. We asked to speak to their wedding planner, who the receptionist said was him, then passed on to Albert the Manager, who confirmed rooms were available for our chosen date in May 2017 to be married at Cragwood, however said to...

Hotel is a worthy 4 star with the presentation and facilities as you would expect. Dogs are well catered for nothing is too much trouble, staff set up tables for dinner and breakfast just outside the dining room so your dog can stay with you. Has a well stocked bar and food was also of a very good standard. Gardens... More

We had the best couple of stays at the hotel and many factors have led to the 5 stars we think Cragwood deserves. To start with, the staff are amazing and always happy to assist! Food was great!
