We don't really want to give a good review - even though the food is just divine, even though Donna & Gary are wonderful hosts, even though the views from the hotel are the best in the Lake District - but the better the reviews more people will want to go which means when we want to return the place...

We have just returned from another wonderful few days at Hazel Bank. Unfortunately the weather was the worst we have had in the last 12 years of coming to the Lake District, but this did not detract from the excellent time that we had once again.

We have stayed at Hazel Bank Country House, on 5 occasions in the past and always enjoyed every minute spent there. The last time was our 40th wedding anniversary 16th September 2012, so our next visit in August this year is long overdue and eagerly anticipated.

My girlfriend and I had a one night, flying visit to Hazel Bank. It was perfect. The food is sublime, the location and surrounding areas are stunning and (perhaps most importantly) the owners, Gary and Debbie, are phenomenal.

Hazel Bank is perfect! Quite a claim, but totally justified. Everything about it, location, accommodation, food reflects the highest attention to detail and awareness of what guests want from a luxurious and classy stay. The package is perfectly completed by Gary & Donna's skilled, warm, and attentive hosting. We've visited a number of times and look forward to returning again.

One word sums up our three-night stay - Magical. Hazel Bank House reflects the mood and character of its Lakeland surroundings, quite beautiful. The style, the food and the hospitality were simply superb. Wonderful hosts. Fabulous break. Can't wait to return. Jo and Steve Clark, Derbyshire.
