We booked a three night New Year break at the Cragwood largely on the basis of what we had read here and were not disappointed! The staff were excellent, the room was beautiful and the food both plentiful and delicious. Nothing to fault at all!

Well what can I say, our second stay since summer and what a stay it was. 3 nights with the most impeccable food and service. The staff could not have been more helpful. The level of food quality was unreal and we will definitely be back in summer if not sooner. 10/10!!!.
