  • "Had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful cottage, it was lovely and clean."

    We found this cottage perfect for the 2 of us with a dog. Would highly recommend if wanting to stay at a beautiful place close to Windermere.

  • "Our second stay at this fantastic place this time with our son his girlfriend and their 9 week old baby boy anlong with Milo the Cocker Spaniel and it definitely won’t be our last."

    One slight build would be a clothes airer as we had to wash grandchild’s baby grows and had no where to hang to dry. Other than that if your looking for a great base is the south lakes look no further!

  • "We loved this little cottage it’s clean and equipped with all appliances and very welcoming with a bottle of Prosecco also a few coffee pods."

    Beds were very comfortable with easy access to each bathroom because they’re en suite. Showers was lovely and warm and the log burner was a great after a muddy wet walk and the traditional cottage features made this modern finished cottage just perfect. We high recommend and we will definitely be back. Thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely review, we’re glad you enjoyed the area and hopefully lots of walks from the doorway and we would of course be delighted to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "We loved everything about this little place, just what we were after!"

    The cottage had everything you could need, was well equipped, comfortable and in the perfect location to spend the day exploring before an evening relaxing by the fire. We loved the traditional cottage features but with a modern finish. Would highly recommend.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and in the area. Property Owner

  • "Great stay at Hazelrigg Cottage which exceeded all our expectations."

    Small issue on arrival due to a recent power cut but communication with the Owner was excellent and resolved straight away. The cottage is extremely well equipped with all that is required for a relaxing stay. The owner had obviously taken onboard previous comments and there was both a small stock of coffee pods plus a starter pack of kindling and logs for the first couple of nights. This is great and along with the bottle of prosecco etc made you feel welcome. Walks from the cottage with the dog are great with numerous well marked trails available. Kitchen is excellent with top class appliances and spotlessly clean (as was all of the cottage) and nothing better than relaxing in front of the log burner on an evening. Excellent cottage and we look forward to a return visit. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for this great feedback and for your recommendations / constructive suggestions around some improvements we can / have made. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future and hope you enjoyed your onward holiday. Property Owner

  • "Disappointing… this property has so much promise but sadly fails to deliver."

    On arrival at the cottage we found the kettle still half full of water, the milk frother full of festering milk from previous guests and we also found food splashes on the chopping board and food remnants on pots/pans/knives etc. We also found the following- missing handle on kitchen drawer, cobwebs in the ceiling light/window in kitchen, toothpaste marks on the sink in the downstairs bathroom, dead bugs inside the light fitting in the upstairs bathroom, ripped/torn bed linen and overflowing bins. It’s also worth mentioning that whilst a log burner and coffee machine are featured in cottage, no logs/kindling or coffee pods are left for guests to use, according to the owner this is too logistically challenging? Contacted the owner whilst we were there regarding issues with cleanliness, they gave a lacklustre apology but ultimately passed the book to the cleaning company they hire - the owners don’t live nearby so couldn’t do anything practical to offer support and Sykes didn’t bother to contact us at all until after we’d already arrived back home, we’re actually still yet to have a proper conversation with Sykes regarding the issues. Sadly it was a really disappointing stay in what could be a lovely cottage in the perfect location, a real shame.

    This is obviously a very disappointing review which i don’t believe reflects the property or other guests experience. In terms of addressing the review - contact was received at 10pm on a Saturday around 30 hours after check in, making cleanliness issues pretty difficult to resolve and we did not ‘pass the buck’, we are a fully managed property and have to raise any issues with our cleaners which we did on the Sunday, had the issues been raised immediately housekeeping could have gone straight to resolve. Any issues with cleanliness is significant and one we addressed directly with housekeeping, we have, as owners, checked / inspected the property a number of times between stays and found the cleaning and towels / linen provided to be of a very good standard. Some of the feedback we absolutely take on board (although the reviewers context is disappointing) - in terms of logs / kindling - we have found a resolution to be able to provide some wood with the burner (unfortunately we have very limited dry storage space). Also on the nespresso pods - we do not state we provide them but a number will be available to future guests. Some of the issues raised though feel very minor - water in the kettle on arrival? missing handle in the kitchen - it is missing from the 5th drawer (is still accessible) and is even showing on the listing pictures as being missing, a matching replacement is on its way. The cobwebs - it is an old cottage in the Lake District, some cobwebs in the extreme of roof lights are possible - they are certainly not all over the property. The vast majority of issues relate to cleanliness so we don’t understand the 50% ratings on accuracy, comfort and facilities, the ‘lacklustre reply’ from the owners also rather misleading - we responded within 30 minutes at 10.30pm on a Saturday evening and have also sent two further messages of which none have been responded to at all. We do take issues very seriously and take a lot of pride in the property as well. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay here, the cottage is beautiful, very cosy."

    It’s quiet and in a great location for trips out and walks. We will definitely stay here again.

    Thank you for your review and we are really pleased you enjoyed the cottage and would be great to welcome return visitors. Property Owner

  • "First couple renting this cottage with our cocker spaniel Milo."

    What a fantastic place, finished to a very high standard, really well furnished, and the best equipped property we have stayed in! The owners have really gone the extra mile with this place and should be proud of what they have accomplished. Easy access to south lakes, Newby Bridge, Cartmel and Grizedale Forest. Nicely tucked away up a country road providing easy walks to take the dog out from your front door, peaceful and very very quiet. The only recommendation would be better lighting around the parking area as very dark at night due to no street lights.

    Thank you for such a great review and glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree on the lights, we thought the solar ones we’d added would be sufficient but don’t seem to attract enough sunlight through winter so we will be looking to sort an alternative as soon as possible. Property Owner

The property

Hazelrigg Cottage, an inviting, semi-detached property, is nestled on the outskirts of Newby Bridge, Cumbria.

Renovated to an excellent standard, this country escape is ideal for a family of four looking to getaway to this Cumbria region.

After a day of fell walking, kick off your boots and get the woodburner roaring before slumping on the sofa.

Tune into the Smart TV and watch a movie or move into the kitchen and start thinking about dinner, utilising a range of integrated appliances.

Serve up at the dining table or take the evening outside and catch the last of the sun from the bistro table and chairs.

As you plan for the next adventure, pop on the washer/dryer on a spin before washing away the day in the bathroom or shower room.

The bedrooms are furnished with king size beds and with one situated on each floor then the bathroom and shower room can become en-suites.

Venture into Newby Bridge and treat yourself to a pamper at the Swan Hotel and Spa; unwind with a soak in the hot tub or treat yourself to a glass of bubbly and enjoy stunning fellside views.

Stroll along the River Leven up to Windermere where you can catch a boat trip across the water, or why not try your hand at kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding?

Be sure to visit the bustling town of Bowness, home to a great array of attractions including The Old Laundry Theatre and the world-renowned World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

Further afield, Ambleside and Hawskhead have lots to offer, whilst the mountainous Scafell Pike will appeal to those seeking a challenge.

Enjoy a jam-packed escape to the Lakelands at Hazelrigg Cottage.

About the location

NEWBY BRIDGE

Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats, bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus the picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
