My husband treated me to a weekend here and as soon as we walked in we both said it reminded us of an Agatha Christie set! Absolutely stunning, watching red squirrels from our room in a morning and also from the breakfast room was beautiful. The food was outstanding and we don't have a bad word to say about the...

Newish owners have turned a good hotel into an outstanding one with attention to every last detail in the scenic Borrowdale Valley. Nothing too much trouble and 4-course evening meals to die for. Only 7 rooms, so everyone gets to know everyone else. Good wine list, honesty bar. Altogether outstanding and set in one of the finest Lake District valleys

My wife wondered why i hadn't written a review about this place. I said i was reluctant to write one. Why?. Because it's heaven and our little piece of heaven. A fabulously relaxing and sumptuous place. Peaceful and super-professional. A talented family team run Hazel Bank and they made a range of very different guests very welcome. We drank sherry...

First visit to Hazel Bank and look forward to returning with particular appreciation for the four course dinners which were outstanding. Location, cleanliness and atmosphere could not be better. Room information booklet needs updating- different owners and an honesty bar arrangement were out of date.

We love Hazel Bank Country House. The owners Gary & Donna are great hosts, they are warm & welcoming and on arrival you feel at home straight away. The rooms are spotlessly clean with lots of nice finishing touches. The evening meal is always delicious & Gary has picked a great wine list. We will definitely be back!

Once again Gary and Donna provided their usual warm welcome. A family group trip to scatter ashes of a relative was made much more bearable by the sensitive handling of the situation by the owners. The rooms with their beautifully refurbished bathrooms and comfortable beds were warm and welcoming, with sherry and chocolates along with tea and coffee making facilities,...

Everything about this hotel was impeccable. We have never experienced such wonderful hospitality before. The quality of the accommodation is outstanding. The food is superb, accompanied by an excellent wine list. Gary is a wonderful host, I can't imagine what else he could possibly do for his guests.
