I found this hotel purely by accident and am I pleased that I did.
There's only one word to describe the hotel, food, staff and location and that is "AMAZING".
We were lucky enough to be placed into room 16 which boasts a four poster bed with views over looking lake Windermere. The room was imaculate and very well stocked, the bathroom was also beautiful and housed good quality bathing products.
The staff are so lovely, they are all very well suited to their jobs, nothing is too much trouble. They are happy, attentive, helpful and make sure they personalise each customers stay.
As for the food, it was sublime. We've never eaten such wonderful food, the menu changed nightly and it was a struggle to choose a dish. Whilst perusing the menu, you are treated to drinks and canapes. Once your starter is ready you are led to your table where you are presented with what can only be described as a work of art. My partner and myself found ourselves actually making noises whilst eating the food, noise like: Oh my god, mmmmmmmm, nom nom etc ..... :-)
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone, we are in our 30's and fitted in very well with couples who were in their 50's and 60's.
The hotel is only a 3 star, I quesioned this as it's unbelievable to why it's not higher. The reason it's not 4 star or above is simply because it doesn't have a lift or a night porter and in all honesly it doesn't need either.
If you're thinking about going, please consider it, it's is an amazing little gem nestled away in the most beautiful surroundings.

We would just like to say a big thank you to you all for making us so welcome with your hospitality during our recent stay at your hotel. What a wonderful place, our room was amazing with reaching views to the lake and the flowers were lovely, it was also spotlessly clean and the food was so tasty, compliments to the chefs.
The open fires made it very romantic, welcoming and relaxing, it was only a short break but we really enjoyed it and would definitely return!

Many thanks again

If you ever want a relaxing, country hotel, with log fires, fantastic staff, great food and great selection of wines and bar drinks, with no fuss, nothing is too much trouble, everyone smiling, all with fantstic views of Lake Windermere, then Cragwood Hotel has to be your number 1 choice. Rooms are clean, very comfortable with all ameneties. Restaurant is one of the best, with good local fresh food all served with a smile but still with an acute attention to detail.
This place is a real gem!

My wife and I along with friends stayed for the New Year special break [2010/2011]

Staff fantastic, Service fantastic, Food fantastic. alround the best short break we have had. Enjoyed a great party with the other guests some of whom had been going there for many years

Because we booked late we ended up with the smallest bedroom but it had everything you need for a good nights sleep. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable bed,and very quiet once the party had finished.

The hotel is set in it's own very impresive ground on the banks of Lake Windamere and the views need to be seen.
