Set within a twenty-acre estate with landscaped gardens, woodlands and views of Lake Windermere, Cragwood Country House on Ambleside Road is a special setting for a meal, popular with guests staying at the hotel as well as Cumbria locals. Originally built in 1910, Cragwood Country House's interior is equally as stunning as its surrounds. Taking advantage of the restaurant’s Lake District location, Cragwood Country House’s menu showcases the area’s best local produce. Some standout dishes include the oven roasted pigeon breast with spring roll leg meat, puy lentil & chorizo cassoulet and parsnip & pigeon jus and the pave of Scottish salmon served with lobster & squid ink risotto, aubergine caviar, sea vegetables and asparagus & lobster veloute. A popular choice for special occasions, making a reservation at Windermere’s Cragwood Country House in advance is advised.
We enjoyed a superb evening dinner at this delightful hotel. Starting with canapés on the patio with a view out over Lake Windermere, then inside to the pleasant dining room to enjoy a four course meal with coffee and chocolates out on the patio again. Our main course was duo of duck, beautifully cooked and attractively presented. The pear sorbet was delicious and my desert of sticky toffee pud finished off a wonderful meal. Service was first rate. Thank you
Amazing food. We had the evening meal at £39pp and it was above all expectations. Probably the best meal I've ever eatten. Well worth the money
Beautfully presented, tasty food served by attentive staff. A lovely dining experience. The hotel feels more like a home and the traditional surroundings really added to our experience.
Great relaxing break in a quiet countryside area. Excellent view over lake and gardens. Plenty of birdlife. Dinner at the hotel very good with attentive service. The weekend was a real treat.
We stayed one night here on our way up to Glasgow but, wish we could have stayed longer!! It is a beautiful hotel, with lovely lounge areas and two dinning rooms. The grounds are fabulous, with beautiful views all around. An idyllic peaceful setting. We walked down to the waters edge and our Granddaughter had a little paddle! The staff are all brilliant. We would highly recommend this hotel.
We were on our Honey moon. I couldn't of wished for a nicer place to stay. The Hotel was lovely including the grounds that it is set in with Beautiful views. The food was good and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. My only snag was that the pack lunches were a little expensive at £12 although you did get an extensive lunch for that. Will definitely stay here again.
I would firstly like to thank all the hotel staff for all there efforts in making our stay at the CRAGWOOD special. The room was very good, and the evening meals very special. So I would give the hotel 9+ out of 10 overall. Many thanks Anthony MacKay.
