"We enjoyed a fantastic week at thiswonderful holiday property, beautifully presented, spacious & spotlessly clean!"
Great central location close to supermarkets & many independent shops and eateries/coffee shops. A great base for exploring the Lake District - would highly recommend!
Thank you very much for your lovely comments Julie, so pleased you enjoyed your stay & very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future! All the best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"Had a great week staying at Hazlenut."
It is in a fantastic location and so close to all the local amenities. It is a lovely spacious cottage, beautifully decorated and very clean. The games / tv room was a big hit with the adults and the kids. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
"Fantastic location, very clean, everything needed was provided."
Great family holiday
"A great cottage in a good location."
It was very comfortable & well equipped with plenty of cutlery.glassware & crockery etc all of which were of good quality. The welcome basket of local cakes etc was a nice touch. There was just one downside. We understood that there was a shared garden space.which wasn’t a problem,but unfortunately we didn’t use it. The reason being that it was very untidy with lots of weeds & dead plants. It really needed some attention to make it into a place where you wanted to sit & have a coffee. Having said that it wouldn’t stop us visiting again.
"Absolutely super stay, enabling us to complete a good few Wainwright walks."
The cottage is ideally situated, and we will definitely be coming again. There were 3 small observations - a squidgy for the shower doors would have been good as we like to clean down the shower doors, and also a wash basket so that when the washing machine was unloaded it's easier to dump them in a plastic basket ready to hang, finally a butter knife spreading butter with the cutting knives wasn't the easiest. It really is a splendid home and we all agreed it is home from home. The owners, Nicola and Chris went the extra mile in providing more than the average kitchen utensils and home equipment. Local amenities are great, and the little touches on arrival, like the chocolates and cake were very much appreciated. Thank you for everything we were very sad to leave on Saturday. x
"Overall a lovely property within walking distance of town centre."
Very well equipped and very spacious. The basement games area was an added bonus especially as it was very warm and we were able to cool off with our grandson. One minor problem was the shower in the en-suite which was not very powerful but was still ok to use. Overall a very nice accomodation
"My family of 8 stayed here for a week."
We loved every minute of being in this house. Brilliant location. Beautiful and well done all the way through. We are all looking forward to returning soon as we can.
Thanks for your lovely review Charlotte, so pleased you enjoyed your stay! We very much look forward to welcoming you back to Hazelnut Cottage in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"The property is immaculate, perfectly situated for local facilities and travel beyond."
We did not want for anything. The kitchen was well kitted, fabulous for a large family like ourselves. Plenty of space to relax, the cinema room was a hit witj all ages. Contact with Nicola and Chris was excellent throughout. I would highly recommend this property.
"We absolutely loved our stay at Hazelnut Cottage."
It’s in a great location for walking to Windermere town centre and Bowness. The cottage is nicer than the pictures show, really comfortable and clean with everything you could need. Will definitely be returning!
"Beautiful property, very comfortable, areas for different age groups of families, close to amenities, walks in the area and good restaurants near by ."
Overall a lovely place to stay.
"What an amazing holiday cottage!"
Even better than in the photos - often photos make rooms look bigger than they really are - not in this case, spacious lounge, in fact, spacious throughout. Huge utility area with darts board and table footie. Extremely comfortable beds with quality pillows and duvets. Kitchen equipment as good as at home. DVD selection extensive. Christmas decorations tastefully done. Location also perfect for shops, cafes and accessing the fells. The log burner kept us toastie even with the frost and frozen pavements outside. We really hope to return to this amazing property.
Hello Trisha, many thanks for your lovely feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hazelnut and very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"Hazelnut Cottage is a tastefully furnished, cosy cottage with everything you need for a luxe getaway in a beautiful part of the world."
The owners have thought of everything and the welcome hamper was a particularly thoughtful touch. We loved our stay there (our second one to date!) and I have no doubt that we'll be visiting again next year.
Hello Chloe, Thanks very much for your great feedback, we are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your second stay at the cottage and look forward to welcoming you back in 2023! Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"Hazelnut Cottage is a real home from home."
It is very well equipped and so comfortable. Our four generation family enjoyed our stay. We appreciated the basket of welcome goodies. The cottage is a short walk to Windermere and all the town has to offer.
Hello Violet, many thanks for your great feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hazelnut Cottage & very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future! Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"Absolutely superb cottage, so comfortable and well designed."
The beds were extremely comfortable too. We had three generations staying and all loved the cinema room and the football table. A wealth of cafes and restaurants within walking distance and lots of things to do locally. I Would highly recommend this beautiful cottage.
Hello Linda, Many thanks for taking the time to send us some great feedback. Really pleased to hear you all enjoyed your stay & very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future! Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"The cottage is lovely, perfect for our extended family ."
The kitchen is well equipped and our teenagers loved the cinema room. The beds were all very comfortable and the rooms spacious with plenty of space to store clothes. The parking is really a bit to tight for two cars but you can squeeze them in with some clever reversing, only a couple of inches between cars and between the cars and the wall so not for the faint hearted. There is a parking permit to use for on street parking but rarely any spaces available near the cottage in the evenings. We would recommend Hazelnut Cottage and thank the owners for the warm welcome we received.
Hello Audrey, Thank you for your great feedback & really glad you enjoyed your stay! Very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"Absolutely lovel, well-appointed property in a quiet cul-de-sac within short walking distance of all the amenities in Windermere."
The beds are really comfortable, the kitchen and dining room are spacious and our group of 8 had a great time hiking in the hills for a week. Would definitely recommend this property for a group. There are 2 parking spaces outside the property and a single parking permit for the road
Hello Euan, Thank you for your great feedback & once again, so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Very much hope to welcome you back to walk some more Wainwright’s again in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner

Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We look forward to welcoming you back to Hazelnut Cottage in the future. Best wishes, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"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!
Dear Vikki Thank you very much for your great feedback. We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Hazelnut in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner

Central for all our needs but set back away from any bustle Great
Thank you very much for your feedback Lorraine, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Hazelnut & very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. Best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"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
"Great property which was as described with all that we needed for the week away with plenty of room to relax after walking in the Lakes."
Cinema room went down a treat.
We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Hazelnut Cottage and very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. All the best, 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.
Thank you very much for your feedback Becky, really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Hazelnut Cottage and very much hope we can welcome you back again in the future. All the best, Nicola & Chris Property Owner
"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.
"This was our first holiday with our 5-month-old and couldn't have asked for a better place for our son's first holiday."
The property exceeded all our expectations, we couldn't have asked for more. The whole property from the fixtures and fittings have been thought out so well. I couldn't recommend it more. We hope we'll be back again soon.
"We had a fabulous time with 4 friends."
Everything is of a very high standard from bedding,furniture,cutlery everything absolutely perfect. The cinema room made it for us,we had so much fun playing table football,darts and having music loud and not worrying about the neighbour's.The location is brilliant,10 min walk into Bowness. Would recommend Popeyes pizza in Windermere,one of the best.An amazing holiday home,hope to return.
"Wow what an amazing cottage!"
! Me and my family stayed 7 nights and we enjoyed ourselves so much. The cottage is very modern and the facilties are amazing. The games room/cinema room was fab and we spent so much time in there. The mood lighting in the bathrooms and bedrooms was a very nice touch. Only 25mins walk into bowness! So perfect location too! All in all we had a fab stay and would definitely come back. Thank you for a lovely stay!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your great feedback for Hazelnut Cottage. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and very much look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Property Owner
"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
"What a wonderful cottage."
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.
Thank you very much for your lovely feedback about Hazelnut Cottage, we are so pleased that you had such a great stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to the cottage in the future. Best wishes, Nicola & Chris Property Owner

"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
"Wow this is a really luxurious house where the owners have clearly spared no expense to make your stay as comfortable as possible."
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.
Thank you very much for your feedback! Very happy to hear what a good stay you had. We very much hope to welcome you back to Hazelnut Cottage again in the future. Best Wishes, Chris & Nicola Property Owner
"Such a beautiful cottage!"
Would love to come back and stay. Can’t recommend enough!!
"Hazelnut Cottage is a beautiful property in the heart of Windermere with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable, relaxing stay."
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.
"Hazelnut Cottage is remarkable, the owners have cut no corners in making this an outstanding place to stay."
The photos don’t do it justice. Our family had an amazing time and we will certainly re-book for another holiday. The location is fantastic, one minute walk from the shops/pubs. The facilities were brilliant, including the games/cinema room and we particularly impressed with the kitchenware. Would highly recommend staying at Hazelnut Cottage.
"We loved hazelnut cottage !"
! It is in a perfect location for lovely Windermere village and an easy walk to the lake . Definitely exceeded expectations.
"My family and I enjoyed a great week staying at hazelnut cottage, shops, bars, cafés on your doorstep around the corner, so convenient."
And as for the cottage, everything you need, well clean and catered for, could not ask for anything more. Would highly recommend.
"Lovely cottage that has had a recent refurbishment to a high standard."
Cottage is in a great location for local restaurants and amenities that can be walked to, also great for exploring the Lake District.
"Great cottage with excellent location near to Windermere."
High standard of decor and fittings . Brilliant if you have older children/young teens in the party due to basement with table football, darts and cinema style TV . Listed as having no WiFi but this is incorrect. Would definitely re book. Shared outdoor area at back could do with a bit of a tidy up but otherwise perfect
"This place is absolutely superb, the owners have done an incredible job in renovating this property and creating a world of luxury…superb location and really made our families week… Thanks so much and good luck for the rest of the summer…."
Would highly recommend
