“What a great place”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

I have just come back from a snowy few days staying with Gary and Donna at Hazel Bank. What fantastic professional hosts they are making you feel welcome from the minute you arrived.
The house is a lovely Victorian property set in a great location for walking and the scenery is superb. The rooms are clean, warm (thank goodness) and well furnished. the lounge has a big open fire and although there isn't a bar drinks are readily available. There's a drying room for wet gear which you don't always get in a property like this.
My booking included an evening meal and I'm glad I didn't opt for B&B as the food was of a high standard and the wine cellar well stocked with quality wine.
Gary and Donna are great hosts, natural, friendly and very attentive, you wouldn't have guessed that they had only taken ownership of the property a few days before.
Would I go back, you bet!

Room Tip: the rooms at the from have the best views

This was our first visit to Hazel Bank. My wife and I were greeted by Gary, the new owner who had been handed the keys about 26 hours before we showed up; my initial thought was oh good, this will be interesting....
It soon became clear that Gary his wife Donna and son Adam were seasoned hosts and the next 48 hours turned out to be genuinely fantastic. Roaring fire in the lounge, great food and drink, amazing location, very comfortably, very clean. Wow!

My wife said that she had never been made to feel more welcome at Hazel Bank than in any other establishment anywhere.

We can't wait for another chance to visit.
