Cragwood Country House Hotel & Restaurant

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!

A little bit of history....

Cragwood was originally designed by Frank Dunkerley and built in 1910 for the industrialist Albert Warburton. The house is built from stone quarried in its own grounds and these quarries, which are now a feature of the water gardens, also provided the stone for the famous round house on Belle Isle and many of the houses on the opposite shore of the lake. Many of the Cragwood's original features have been retained and lovingly restored including beautiful wood panelling and magnificent fireplaces.

The Edwardian Gardens, landscaped at the turn of the century by Thomas Mawson, lead down to the shore of Lake Windermere where we have half a mile of lake frontage. Scattered across the shore, both above and below the water-line, are the curious "Inscribed Rocks of Windermere" and on which the recluse John Longmire carved the names of his heroes and enthusiasms in stone.

Dogs

At Cragwood we are a dog friendly hotel. We have a small charge of £20.00 for your dogs stay. Your dog is welcome in any of our bedrooms and lounges, excluding the dining room for health and safety reasons, which we are sure you will understand.

If you do wish for your dog to join you on your stay with us, we ask that you bring all of their own bedding and blankets or cage to help them feel at home.

We kindly ask you to refrain from allowing your dog on any of the hotel bedding, as unfortunately you will be charged an additional £40.00 to cover the cost of the necessary cleaning.
