We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel on one of their offers, I went fishing and used the WADAA permit which the hotel purchases and my husband enjoyed his trips out to various steam train attractions.

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. I am delighted that you enjoyed your fishing break. We believe the Cragwood grounds are the best place around for fishing because the grounds are so quiet which must have an effect on the fishing. Even if you don't manage to catch anything, the Cragwood's grounds really does give that feeling of...

The hotel is in a beautiful location with extensive lakeside grounds and a beautiful garden. It is exceptionally quiet and peaceful. It is easy to access and there is plenty of parking.

Thank you for your recent review on Tripadvisor. Your review was most comprehensive and I am delighted that you enjoyed so many aspects of your stay. I couldn't agree more about the stunning views.
