“Stunning!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Just came back from a wedding at Cragwood with an overnight stay. What an experience!!!!! Fabulous location with stunning views, staff that anybody would be proud of, beautiful rooms with huge comfy beds and a proper full English breakfast. Cannot recommend it enough.

From the room to the staff and food, everything was perfect. Would highly recommend.
The hotel has a lot of character, all the staff were friendly and more than happy to help, the food was varied and of a very high quality.

I recently spent two nights at The Cragwood Country House Hotel, Windermere along with my partner and three dogs, we stayed in one of the garden rooms which was ideal as we had access straight out into the garden and down to the Lake. We had a wonderful stay mainly due to the excellent staff, they were very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The food and service were first class, especially Nicky, our Hungarian waitress who was delightful and looked after us really well. A big thank you to everyone, we will certainly be coming back.

Room Tip: Our garden room was excellent, quiet, nice view, access straight out of the door and down to the Lak...

A relaxing three days spent in the Lake District was made more special with the comfort provided by this lovely hotel. The room was more than adequate and met our needs. The lounges in the old and new sections need to be experienced to get a good feel of this hotel. The breakfast was good value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful. When next in the UK and in the area we would definitely stay here again.

Have a look at photos of the outside of this hotel, when you do you will fall in love with it and want to stay. In this case the inside, the facilities and the service matched the excellent facade. Over 3 weeks in the UK and Greece this was the best night we had - beautiful view, comfortable bed and pillows and the feeling that you have died and gone to heaven. Pre dinner drinks in one of the fairy tale reception rooms was fantastic and the light dinner we had was perfect. Follow up with a stroll around the gardens and you will not want to leave. The Cragwood is right next to the water taxi so transport problems are solved. Do yourself a favour and visit Windemere and stay at the Cragwood!

Room Tip: We were 2 couples travelling - it is a small hotel and a can say with confidence that all rooms are...
