A 2-night stay at Hazel Bank Country House Hotel in Rosthwaite, near Borrowdale, is an experience "above that of a typical Lake District hotel" claims The Guardian, which names its "great food" and "very warm welcome" as highlights. The AA Hotel Guide 2016 also holds the property in high regard, awarding it 5 Gold Stars, a Rosette and a Breakfast Award, and listing it as a finalist for the 'AA Friendliest B&B of the Year Award 2015-2016'.
Hazel Bank Country House Hotel occupies an "idyllic" hilltop setting (The Guardian) surrounded by acres of pretty gardens and woodland that conjure "an almost Alpine valley scene". Honister Slate Mine, Derwentwater, Whinlatter Forest and Keswick are all within 25-minutes' drive.
To reach this 19th-century house, you'll travel over a humpback bridge and down a long, winding drive. Each room features tea- and coffee-making facilities, bottled water, sherry, homemade truffles and countryside views, and Wi-Fi is free throughout.
The kitchen uses locally sourced produce, so the menu changes often to reflect what's in season, while breakfast is cooked to order.
