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!
