    June sunshine on Windermere

    The most amazing weekend made possible by everyone at the Cragwood. We booked the hotel for exclusive use (23 rooms, 60 guests at the wedding) from Friday night to Sunday and it was a great decision, as we had time to relax with our guests on Friday night before the big day on Saturday. We chose to get married outside, with views across Lake Windermere and mountains behind us and the weather was stunning. The itinerary, all organised by Stacy and Hannah, ran incredibly smoothly and I felt I could relax and enjoy myself on the day. We had the Fairfield package, and the food was excellent (and they were spot on in accommodating dietary requirements too). In the evening, we chose to hire a boat (again, organised by the Cragwood) for a one hour cruise - you can access the lake directly from the hotel grounds - can’t recommend this highly enough! The hotel itself has stunning grounds, beautiful historical features, lots of smaller lounges for guests to relax in if they don’t want to be on the dance floor and the views are phenomenal. We can’t wait to come back for our anniversary. Thank you so much!

    Fantastic stay and location

    Escaped here for an elopement wedding , Hannah was our point of contact from the start and this was al done via email . When we arrived the day before everything was in place as per email and we were not disappointed with our room.
    The day went smoothly and there were no issues at all , Hannah had delivered what was set out and we were over the moon with everything.
    Food was excellent, rooms and house was immaculately clean and the staff were beyond generous in their time and manners .
    Can’t wait to return for a chill out wk end .
    Well done cragwood and Hannah is a credit to the place .
    ❤️

    A day we will never forget.

    We had the most amazing wedding day at Cragwood Country House. It’s easy to see why Cragwood has won the 2019 Cumbria Wedding Venue of the Year! The venue is stunning with beautiful views over the lakes. The staff were so friendly and helpful from start to finish and our guests could not speak highly enough of them. They coordinated the day brilliantly to ensure it all flowed seamlessly and they really couldn’t do enough for us. Also the food was delicious, we had lots of very happy guests. Can’t recommend this venue highly enough! It is a day we will never forget."

    Grounds stunning, food amazing!

    Myself and my partner got married here 07/05/19 and we cannot thank the staff enough for everything they've done to make our stay such a wonderful experience. Stacey and Emily helped me plan the wedding and I could not have been happier with the help, and whilst there everyone was brilliant! I could not have imagined getting married anywhere more beautiful. The grounds were simply stunning and the food was amazing! They easily catered for the various allergies of my guests and ensured everything went smoothly. Albert and Trudy also helped so much during our stay and I cannot sing their praises enough.

    Nothing was too much trouble

    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.

    We would not change a thing!

    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

    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.
