  • "Cottage location was excellent with many amenities within walking distance."

    Beds were comfortable and the cottage had everything we needed for our holiday. Attention to detail was excellent and the owners quickly answered any questions we had. Parking was tight for two cars but the owners helpfully provided a parking permit for on street parking which worked well. Excellent Italian restaurant called San Pietro only 2 minutes walk and 3 small supermarkets within easy walking distance. Best self catering accommodation we have found to date.

    Dear Ian & party Many thanks for your great feedback. We are extremely pleased to hear you had a really enjoyable stay at the cottage. We very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. All the best, Nicola & Chris All Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved this property."

    Key arrangement very easy and property very clean on arrival. Welcome basket much appreciated. House has been renovated to a high standard. Our eldest son loved the LED strip lighting. Basement movie room was nice to have in the evening, no need to take dvds as there are 100s. Kitchen equipment very good. Shops, restaurants and mini supermarkets literally at end of road. Bowness approximately 25 min walk away. Will come again!

  • "This cottage was absolutely perfect!"

    ! We go in about 2 staycations every year and by far this is the best cottage We have stayed in. The cinema and games room was an absolute bonus and kept the kids entertained. Also the quality of the furniture and kitchen equipment was amazing! Which is rare to find, usually you look forward to going back home and using your own stuff but in this case it was the opposite! The cottage looks small from the outside but is massive inside, lots of cool gadgets like changing colour LED lights in the bedrooms and touch screen LED mirrors in the bathroom. Honestly I never like to stay in the same place more than once but I would definitely stay here again! Best staycation I’ve been on!

    Thank you so much for your feedback Aeishah, We are so pleased that you had a wonderful stay at Hazelnut Cottage and very much hope that we can welcome you back again in the future! Best wishes, Nicola & Chris Property Owner

  • "We had a great week in the house."

    The house had very recently been renovated and was in excellent condition - the decor was really nice, the furniture was comfy and stylish, and the house was well equipped. Even better than the photos. There was also a thoughtful welcome pack with snacks when on arrival. The host responded very quickly to our questions in the week. Would happily stay again.

  • "This is a beautifully furnished house - the photos just don’t do it justice."

    And it’s very deceptive from the front - it’s much more spacious than you might think! If you want quality accommodation, near to village facilities, including eateries, this is the spot for you. We had a lovely break at the end of March - it snowed! - but we were very cosy with the log burner lit, soft lighting and a good film and great food! Clearly, the downstairs cinema was also a great addition - TopGun was definitely the fav film to watch!!

  • "This is a fantastic Cottage."

    High-quality facilities throughout. The decor in every room is superb and we loved the little details too from the ambient lighting, the USB sockets, extremely well stocked kitchen, range of books, dvds and games, the underfloor heating, etc I could go on. Our hosts were extremely welcoming, leaving a lovely little welcome hamper, bowl of chocs, handy hint "packs" and even offering to show us how to light the fantastic wood burning stove. The website photos do show the property well but i have to mention the cinema/games room this was on another level, we all loved spending time in there, it was an excellent feature and great space for family get togethers. I would stay again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend to anyone.

  • "Hazelnut Cottage is probably the best self catering house we've ever stayed in."

    It's done to an extremely high spec throughout and there was plenty of everything. Nothing was scrimped on. Fantastic T.V room downstairs, super comfy beds. Fantastic location. Couldn't fault the property at all. We did have issues with the heating and hot water but the owner was very responsive in trying to sort them. The only improvement I could suggest is getting rid of the flower bed/ stones outside so that parking for two cars is not as stressful.

    Thank you very much for your feedback about the cottage & once again our apologies for any disruption caused by the heating/hot water problem. The engineer has attended and it's all sorted. We'll certainly have a think about the flower bed outside & the parking, it does help in creating a barrier for the neighbouring property but perhaps it could be improved. Really glad you enjoyed your stay and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Hazelnut in the future! Property Owner

    We were a family group and we all loved everything, a lovely log burning stove for us oldies to sit and relax with a glass of wine and a fabulous cinema room for the grandchildren to chill in. We had to contact the owners for a small issue but they called and sorted it immediately. Can’t fault anything and loved the welcome hamper and there was also a lovely Christmas tree set up. We hope to be back next year.

  • "Well what can I say, perfection pretty much."

    No expense has been spared on this house, its just stunning, straight out of a magazine. We used it for a special birthday celebration where 2 families met up. Couldn't have found a better place, the kitchen was brilliant with 2 ovens and everything you could need, the dining room was great for our family meals. The bedrooms were just fantastic, those changing colour lights are all wonderful touch. I'd only pick up on the front twin and back ensure room being a tad chilly, though it was very windy, the heaters didn't see to get hot. The main bathroom.........wow! Id have lived n there, i loved it, the decor and heated floor ans mirror and shower just wow! However as others have said the icing on the cake was the basement cinema and games room, our children just loved it as well as my other family members, who knew we were so competitive at darts! I think a few orders are wanting to be put in for those bean bags too!! Location was perfect we definitely want to return.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback about Hazelnut Cottage, we are so glad you really enjoyed your stay. We have taken a look at the two radiators you have mention and bled a little air out of the which seems to have improved them greatly, thank you for letting us know about this. We very much look forward to welcoming you backs to Hazelnut Cottage in the future! Best Wishes Nicola & Chris Property Owner

    Everything down to the plentiful cutlery draw, the log supply, the mood lighting in the bedrooms and bathrooms, the welcome pack and the huge TV in the cinema room was just perfect. The location couldn’t be any better either - 2 mins walk into Windermere and 20mins into Bowness. We stayed as a group of 8 and would highly recommend staying here and will definitely be booking it again. Thank you.

    The owners, Chris and Nicola, have really thought carefully about the layout which means there is lots of living space and everywhere has been finished to a high standard so it feels really luxurious. We loved everything about it (especially the pillows - they were so comfortable!) and the little touches that really made it feel like a home away from home. I can't recommend it highly enough and we are already planning a return trip.
