Why We Love This Hotel

  • This Edwardian manor hotel is “superbly situated” (The AA) in 20 acres of grounds leading down to Windermere
  • The hotel is a 10-minute drive from Windermere town centre and 20 minutes’ drive from Grasmere
  • “Cuisine is a highlight” (The AA) in the hotel’s 2-AA-Rosette restaurant
  • Some of the rustic-chic guestrooms have 4-poster beds


Views of Windermere, England’s largest natural lake, spread from Cragwood Country House Hotel, which offers “bags of charm” (The AA) in a secluded Lake District spot “close to the honeypots without being in the tourist hustle” (The Daily Telegraph). Set on a 20-acre estate of woodland and landscaped gardens, the hotel occupies a grand Edwardian mansion with a Lakeland stone façade, a 10-minute walk from Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre. The towns of Windermere and Ambleside are both within a 10-minute drive of the hotel, whilst Grasmere, the site of Wordsworth’s family home Dove Cottage, takes around 20 minutes to reach by car. Keswick, alongside “idyllic, island-studded” (Lonely Planet) Derwentwater is a 40-minute drive away.

There’s a classic country-house feel to the hotel’s interiors, characterised by wood-panelled walls, leather armchairs and fireplaces. Guests can stroll through the extensive grounds, which feature a herb garden and a private jetty, relax with a drink in the bar, and enjoy a modern take on classic dishes in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant. The Daily Telegraph also highlights the hotel staff as a “plus...bright, fun, personable and on-the-ball with service”.

Some of the hotel’s guestrooms continue the country-chic vibe, whilst others have a “conservative contemporary” (The Daily Telegraph) feel to them. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities, as well as complimentary bottled water and jars of sweets. Higher tariff rooms have garden or lake views and coffee machines, and rooms with 4-poster beds are also available.
