Quality, consistency, friendliness are obvious desires but often are rarely delivered. In my 7/8 years of enjoying this fine establishment, all these have and continue to be the norm! So rather than go on, just it’s try it! #guaranteed! Gary, Donna & James are quite simply the bees knees! Thank you as always for a tip top culinary journey supported by the best raconteurship you could (should) expect in the Lake District!

We just left this amazing country house after an amazing 3 night stay & we did not want to leave! Staying here was the conclusion of our road trip and it did not disappoint. Hosts Gary & Donna are the loveliest people we are so lucky to have met - they went above and beyond to make our trip was incredible. We were in the Bowfell Suite - luxurious, tastefully decorated with a ultra modern bathroom - amazing shower and heated floors - amazing! We did the bed, breakfast and dinner package - everything was 10 out of 10 - Donna`s culinary skills are incredible - fresh, delicious and filling meals. Gary (& James) took great care of us and the other guests with wonderful drinks (love my Malibu & orange), great service & advice on where to go as first time hikers. We did 2 hikes while there - incredible views all over the Borrowdale valley that just took our breath away. We are already planning a return visit and sharing with fellow friends/loved ones. Thank you Gary & Donna for making us feel so relaxed, reducing our stress and helping to increase our wellbeing!

We had a fantastic stay at Hazel Bank. The attention to detail and warm welcome from our hosts made the stay very special. The location is beautiful, the house is stunning and the food & drink exceptional. There are walks from the door and numerous places to visit close by.

We stayed at the Hazel Bank on dinner, bed and breakfast, whilst there were still Covid restrictions in place. The staff created and maintain a safe environment. Service was excellent. We loved the pre dinner hours d’oeuvres and drinks. We were in the Dale Head bedroom. Lovely views, comfortable and big enough. The breakfasts were excellent and we saw a red squirrel every day except one. The fixed menu changed every day and all the meals were beyond excellent. We are planning on returning and bring friends and family.

6 nights stay. A red squirrel turned up at all but one breakfast! Donna is a star with her cooking particularly noteworthy. Evening meals were excellent. Our first visit but we will return and we have been telling our friends that the Hazel Bank is an absolute gem.
