About this property

Nestled on the shores of Lake Windermere, England’s longest and most beautiful lake, you will find Cragwood Country House Hotel, a superb dog-friendly destination in the heart of the Lake District. Built-in 1910 as a private home, Cragwood is set within its own secluded twenty-acre estate of stunning, landscaped gardens and woodland - an absolute playground for dogs! The property still retains many of its original decorative arts and crafts features, including an oak-panelled hall and lounge. Rest your head in one of the charming individually designed bedrooms and enjoy the lake views. From the comfy beds and crisp linen to the deep baths, aromatic toiletries and fluffy towels, all bedrooms have been designed with no-one else but you in mind. The stunning backdrop of Lake Windermere and the surrounding fells make the 2 AA Rosette-awarded Cragwood Restaurant the perfect place to enjoy a fine dining experience. You can dine with your pooch in the cosy bar or lounge area by special arrangement, and there is an abundance of pet-friendly pubs nearby if you fancy venturing out for food. With Lake Windermere on your doorstep, it’s hard to resist a relaxing Lake District break at Cragwood with your canine companion. Take a dog-friendly cruise along Windermere, England’s longest lake, provided by Windermere Lake Cruises and enjoy the fabulous views. The hotel also provides maps for Wansfell and Troutbeck walks for further exploring with your trusty hound. 

Dine with Your Dog

Awarded 2 AA Rosettes, the restaurant is the perfect setting for two and offers the ultimate gourmet experience! Under the creative and experienced direction of head Chef, Calvin Harrison, the menu offers seasonal dishes, prepared with the finest locally sourced ingredients. Whether you’re wanting to enjoy a fine dining experience or simply fancy unwinding in a comfy chair with a coffee and light bite, there is something to suit all tastes. Guests may dine in bar or lounges with their four-legged friends by special arrangement or alternatively, your pooch may relax in your room whilst you dine in the restaurant. If you fancy venturing out for food, we recommend Wateredge Inn, Ambleside or Angel Inn where four-legged friends are welcome!
