Used this as accommodation for a large party that hired Blencowe Hall. Worked a treat as it was so close and everything was so well looked after. We will definitely be back next year. Thank you
Cazenovia Hall is an outstanding holiday let. Myself, husband and 5 close family members stayed for a few nights over my 60th birthday time.
Everyone had an excellent time.Cazenovia is a lovely big barn with simply everything we needed, warmth, ( underfloor heating hugely appreciated by all especially my elderly mum) space, beautifully furnished and the kitchen was excellent with every piece of equipment we needed and then some.
Loved the aga even though I had not used one before...even the kids took it in turns to cook.
We have never had a welcome hamper so comprehensive, generous or of good quality.
There are views from every window, beautifully kept gardens and we all had a great time with the pool table, no arguing over bathrooms as we all had our own.
Thank you and very well done Christine, Charles and Jilly...we are already planning our next visit as there is so much to see and do in this stunning and peaceful part of this country.
We stayed for 7 nights in early August 2017 – extended family of 8 (including 2 small children) and a dog.
We very much enjoyed our week at Cazenovia Hall. We have spent many short holidays in various parts of Scotland and England in rental accommodation where the younger members of our family (and pets) have the freedom to relax. We have invariably found that the accommodation does not quite meet the standard of the marketing material. This was not the case at Cazenovia Hall.
The property fully met the information posted on the web-site. The property had obviously been carefully refurbished and redesigned providing a very grand double height kitchen / dining room with separate large living room adjoining. An extra bonus was the dining table converted easily into a 8ft x 4ft snooker table.
There were 2 large bedrooms (one on ground floor, one on first) a reasonable sized double and good sized twin room. All bedrooms had high quality ensuites, 2 with baths.
Separate utility room with washing machine and drier.
The furnishings and fittings and fixtures were all as described and we found we were wanting for nothing (other than a blender for making fruit smoothies! - not really essential).
The gardens were very attractive and well maintained. We were blessed with reasonably good summer weather but we feel the property would also be very attractive during the winter months with the Aga and open fire. The outside seating area and table was perfect for the afternoon / evening sun and was largely sheltered from the breeze.
Although the other units were occupied we did not sense that our privacy was being encroached upon.
We also found the location very attractive - close to the Lake District attractions but at the same time offering a quiet, rural setting.
Everyone in our family, both young and old, expressed a willingness to return in the future.
We had the best holiday and the accommodation was fantastic, you guys genuinely thought of everything! The place was immaculate and the perfect set up with each of the four bedrooms having an ensuite! The only thing that would have made things easier with dogs and children would have been an enclosed garden area, but the garden area that was provided was well kept and very beautiful and a minor problem in comparison to how lovely everything else was.
We arrived at Cazenovia Hall on a Friday, wow, a beautiful home in a fabulous setting, it was exactly as it said on the tin and more. Everything was available what 5 adults 2 children and 3 dogs would need for a week. Penrith was easily accessible and also to the lakes. The local pub(a mile down the road) in Greystoke did fabulous food, or fantastic Tapas in another pub a few minutes drive away. There was so much to do for everyone and any age close by, the walks were good too, no time to be bored. After a day on the lakes or walking up Helvellyn to come back to Cazenovia Hall only to sit outside with a glass off wine admiring the beautiful surroundings of the Blencowe estate. A very enjoyable week.
Situated in a truly beautiful rural area just north of Ullswater, Cazenovia Hall is really your luxury home away from home. I stayed there with my husband and mother for a week in June and couldn't fault anything. Although only 3 of us, the property caters for 8 with 4 lovely ensuite bedrooms. There is more than ample space for everyone and extremely well kitted out. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need - the kitchen has everything even down to tin foil, cling film and washing powder and an umbrella should you need it after long walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding property. And after a long journey the welcome pack containing quality items was extremely welcome. I could go on and on. But what really stands out is the owners attention to detail in making sure you having everything available in the property that you could possibly need even down to a fire laid in the hearth should you arrive on a chilly day. Their customer service is excellent - nothing is too much trouble for them. I would not hesitate in staying there again [and hope to do so at some point] and/or recommending it others. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Wonderful property for a large family gathering, excellent accommodation, with everything you could need from the fabulous welcome hamper to the overall detail of the property, truly a first class rental property.
Everything has been thought of from the toiletries to the BBQ, peaceful country setting, lots of outdoor space and the furnishings are first class.
Only negative is the lack of fly screens as it is a country setting the flies were a problem but with some screens could be easily solved .
