Nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Jodie & Robin, on 20 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Nov 2018

We got married here a week ago and it was perfect! We were greeted on arrival and allowed into our room early. I had been corresponding with Stacey and her team and at the last minute added our puppy to the guest list! Nothing was too much trouble, even down to the food orders, some gluten and nut free. Staff were attentive and all very happy! Our wedding day went smoothly, the team has everything in hand! Thank you so much.

A magical day

Thank you for making our wedding day truly magical. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful place in which to host our wedding day, filled with such lovely people, who all helped in making many happy memories we can cherish

We would not change a thing!
Venue Service

By Ali & Steve, on 20 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Oct 2018

A heartfelt thank you for making our special day perfect – we would not change a thing! The weather was an added bonus, but the real warmth came from the Cragwood ‘family’. Everyone made us feel special, it was so lovely and the food was amazing, some of the best we have ever had.

What makes the hotel is the staff
Venue Service

By Gemma, on 20 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2018

The whole experience of my sisters wedding there was amazing. The hotel itself was beautiful, the grounds gorgeous. What actually makes the hotel is the staff. From start to finish the staff could not do enough, they were friendly and helpful and made a fuss of my son who is 7. Particular shout out to Ian who made my son feel included. If that’s not good enough the food is amazing!!!!!!! I did not want to leave and we will be going back, thank you so much.

Absolutely fantastic-Nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Nicola Rowett, on 31 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2018

We recently had a ‘Just for Us’ wedding at Cragwood House and it was great. The staff were absolutely fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them, they were great with my sons as well and made us feel really welcome. There was no stress in the run up to the wedding, everything was taken care of beforehand by Stacy and Albert. Cannot recommend them enough! Can’t wait to come back for our anniversaries!

The service at every level is outstanding.
Venue Service

From the moment you meet the Hotel’s efficient and friendly wedding co-ordinator to your departure after the wonderful event you will find characterised by tranquillity, organisation and happiness. An ideal place for an intimate wedding like ours with just a small group of friends. We were ‘sold’ on the venue after meeting the staff and standing in the amazing gardens which stretch to the lake. We enthused about the quality of the food. Be aware this is not standard wedding fodder, dinner here is excellent. Imaginative menu with a flair for flavour combinations. Wine list is first class for value. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, the reception rooms invite lazy reading and relaxing. All that said Weddings are about the details and that takes careful and knowledgeable management. Book here if you want a wedding where the pressure is taken from you because the staff service, at every level, is outstanding. We are joining the very popular list of returning couples we met, re visiting happy memories of their day.

5 star treatment throughout our stay
Venue Service

By Jenny Teesdale, on 19 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 Jun 2018

I had a ‘just us’ wedding at the hotel and I have to say they provided 5 star treatment throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. If everyone could see how a wedding could be so relaxed, everyone would be getting married here. They made it feel private for you and even having an 18 month old running around on the loose, they was very accommodating. The food was incredible too. The views and the grounds of the hotel are stunning. We plan on returning every anniversary as we had such a good experience here.

The staff were amazing and always on hand.
Venue Service

By Ann Marie Rye, on 19 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2018

What can I say .... from the moment we arrived to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble. We spent 3 nights at the hotel for my sisters wedding and I can honestly say the attention to detail didn’t go unmissed. The staff were amazing and always on hand. The surroundings and grounds to the hotel are simply stunning and should be admired. Thank you for making our stay fantastic and for everything on the day for my sister and my now brother-in-law.

The hotel and staff are amazing!!
Venue Service

By Julie and Ben, on 20 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018

We got married here a few weeks ago and the hotel and staff are amazing!!! Our special day was far better than we ever imagined it would be. The staff were very friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. Most of our guest stayed for 2 nights with a few people staying a little longer, everyone had such a lovely break and commented on how beautiful the hotel was and how helpful all the staff were. We can’t wait to visit again.

We will be back!

Its the perfect setting for any celebration
Venue Service

By Jude Murphy, on 19 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2018

We stayed at Cragwood to attend my sister and bother-in-law’s Vow Renewal ceremony. What a wonderful place; food is amazing and the staff cannot do enough for you. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and very clean with a lovely touch of complimentary bottled water from the Cragwood Estate. The gardens and views of the lake are stunning. It’s the perfect setting for any celebration.

Amazing from start to finish
Venue Service

By Carly Pounder, on 19 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018

We recently spent 2 nights at Cragwood for a ‘just us’ wedding. It was amazing from start to finish. Booking the wedding was easy and the wedding coordinator was in touch via email. She responded promptly to any questions I had and I felt like I hardly had to do anything! On arrival, We were greeted by lovely staff who made us feel welcome and at ease. The room and food was beautiful throughout our stay. On the day of the wedding, everything was very relaxed. We were told what time we needed to be ready for and that was it! Everything was done for us! The rain held off and we were able to get married outside which the hotel staff catered for by placing speakers outside so we could hear our music. The day flowed perfectly and was just amazing! Thank you so much to the staff at Cragwood for making our day very special. Beautiful venue. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly and professional staff. Everything that we wanted!
