Nestled on the shores of England’s longest and most beautiful lake you will find Cragwood Country House Hotel.Set in its own secluded, twenty-acre estate of beautiful landscaped gardens and woodland and with stunning views overlooking Lake Windermere, it’s hard to resist a relaxing Lake District break at Cragwood. As soon as you step through the front door of this beautiful country house, you’ll discover an oasis of comfort, warmth and relaxation.The informal and friendly service is so good you’ll hardly notice it. It’s our job to make you feel at home…which isn’t hard once you sit back and unwind in one of our cosy lounges or drawing rooms and take in the spectacular lake views over a freshly brewed coffee or maybe a glass of chilled wine.From the mouth-watering food and drink to the stylish and comfy bedrooms, a short break at Cragwood will leave you feeling pampered, stress-free….and wanting more.If you are looking for the perfect Lake District hotel then look no further...you have just found us!

An absolutely fantastic experience in stunning grounds. You couldn't fault it at all from arriving on Christmas Eve to departing on 27th Dec the attention to detail throughout our stay was 5 star from Albert and his team. Our rooms where fantastic & very spacious. We have never tasted food like it, compliments to the Chef for outstanding menus throughout our stay ( we certainly put a few pounds on). We cannot wait to visit again.

We had a wonderful one night stay at this beautiful hotel and can’t wait until we are allowed to return again. From the moment we arrived on the car park we felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed every element of our visit. The grounds are beautiful and you can walk right down to the lakes edge. There aren’t any walks as such direct from the hotel but hundreds just a short car ride away so the location is brilliant. The staff were superb . Not in the least bit stuffy but professional and welcoming. They explained everything to do with the virus clearly and we felt safe at all times. Our room was very comfortable indeed and we slept very well . It was nice to have a bath after a long walk in the freezing temperatures and it made a big difference. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is in the room including a top-class coffee machine and bath robes. The beds were very comfortable indeed. And the food! It was very difficult to choose from the menu even though it wasn’t massive. Everything sounded wonderful and that proved to be the case. It could have been a little bit warmer with the main courses but every dish and every course was top class. All in all, a fantastic shortstay and we will be back as soon as we possibly can.

A fantastic experience in stunning surroundings. Lovely sized room with patio. Great little private lakeside trails to enjoy the sunrise. The food was exceptional and I’m not embarrassed to say, we ate dishes that we hadn’t heard of before. A well organised package given the tough circumstances. Games, magicians, harpist, they thought of everything. The management and staff get 5 stars from me for their first class service throughout our stay.
