Just returned from a two night stay at this delightful Country House Hotel. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the patron, Garry, to the moment we departed, the warmth and concern for our experience was always apparent. The rooms are very comfortable, and the food prepared by Donna is first class. The Hotel has the comfort of... More

Everything about Hazel Bank oozed charm and elegance. The setting is beautiful and the rooms (including the lounge and dining room) comfortably and tastefully furnished. So much thought has gone into making this such a pleasant place to stay. Breakfast and evening meals were exquisite and well worth the price. To be recommended

My friend had never been to the Lake District and as I only had one night available to give her a memorable visit which would leave her wanting to return, I knew Gary and Donna's haven was the place to stay. The winter refurbishments are beautifully in keeping with the house, which is only to be expected as their standards... More

Country House was just beautiful, rooms lovely and both hosts Gary & Donna were very welcoming. Very pleased we booked dinner at the Country House as food was excellent. Hosts were local people who knew the area well and knew their business. Would stay again without hesitation.
