Cragwood Country House Hotel is Wedding Venue of the Year

A LAKE District Country Hotels property has been crowned the best wedding venue in Cumbria.

The company’s Cragwood Country House hotel received the award at the 12th Annual North West Wedding Venue competition.

The Merewood Country House Hotel and Briery Wood Country House Hotel, the two remaining hotels in the Lake District Country Hotels collection, were also recognized and were selected as finalists for the award, with the Cragwood Hotel taking the crown.

Amy Jenkin, Head of Marketing at Lake District Country Hotels, said: “It is a huge achievement for our Cragwood hotel to be named the winner among many other venues in the area, as well as recognition from our other hotels, and we are honored to represent Cumbria and the Lake District.

“The World Heritage Site of the English Lake District has been voted the UK’s most romantic destination, so of course we strive to ensure a wedding day to be cherished for eternity with our venues and wedding packages.

“This is not the first time The Cragwood Hotel has been recognized as it was recently voted ‘Best Wedding Venue in the North West’ at the 2022 Wedding Industry Awards.

“Additionally, the hotel was a regional finalist in the Wedding Industry Awards in 2020 – a particularly difficult time for the industry due to Covid-19.

CHEERS: Celebrating Success at the Marriage Pageant

“The pandemic has proven to be a struggle for couples awaiting their wedding, with the option of suspending the day or opting for an intimate ceremony.

“However, we understood the stress many people faced and always sought to reduce it as much as possible and ensured their wedding at our Cragwood hotel was just perfect,” Amy said.

Despite the lifting of restrictions, many couples still want a small wedding.

“As a result, the hotel now offers large or intimate packages.”

Amy concluded: “We are grateful that the experience we provide at Cragwood has been appreciated by the newlyweds, and our hard work has led us to this moment where we win the award.”
