This was our second stay at Cazenovia Hall with the first being 4 1/2 years ago which was not long after it opened if I recall correctly. It has been maintained beautifully and there is everything and more that you need for your stay. Each of the four bedrooms has its own bathroom and all have extremely comfortable beds. The fire is fabulous and the aga is wonderful.
On our first night I arranged for the incredible Lynn Hilditch to bring us a Cumbrian High Tea as a surprise for my wife. It was fantastic. She delivered not only beautiful sandwiches but home made quiche, cakes, chutney and scones. I ordered for 7 of us and we were still finishing it off 2 days later! It was not only the quantity but the quality was fantastic, we will definitely order with Lynn again, possibly for dinner next time. I cannot speak highly enough of this service.
We were lucky enough to witness a stoat chase a rabbit on the lawn and it came along the wall within feet of where we were sitting ( the rabbit got away).
Not sure what more I can say apart from enjoy the surroundings and come home, light the fire, have a drink and relax.
Used this as accommodation for a large party that hired Blencowe Hall. Worked a treat as it was so close and everything was so well looked after. We will definitely be back next year. Thank you
Cazenovia Hall is an outstanding holiday let. Myself, husband and 5 close family members stayed for a few nights over my 60th birthday time.
Everyone had an excellent time.Cazenovia is a lovely big barn with simply everything we needed, warmth, ( underfloor heating hugely appreciated by all especially my elderly mum) space, beautifully furnished and the kitchen was excellent with every piece of equipment we needed and then some.
Loved the aga even though I had not used one before...even the kids took it in turns to cook.
We have never had a welcome hamper so comprehensive, generous or of good quality.
There are views from every window, beautifully kept gardens and we all had a great time with the pool table, no arguing over bathrooms as we all had our own.
Thank you and very well done Christine, Charles and Jilly...we are already planning our next visit as there is so much to see and do in this stunning and peaceful part of this country.
We stayed for 7 nights in early August 2017 – extended family of 8 (including 2 small children) and a dog.
We very much enjoyed our week at Cazenovia Hall. We have spent many short holidays in various parts of Scotland and England in rental accommodation where the younger members of our family (and pets) have the freedom to relax. We have invariably found that the accommodation does not quite meet the standard of the marketing material. This was not the case at Cazenovia Hall.
The property fully met the information posted on the web-site. The property had obviously been carefully refurbished and redesigned providing a very grand double height kitchen / dining room with separate large living room adjoining. An extra bonus was the dining table converted easily into a 8ft x 4ft snooker table.
There were 2 large bedrooms (one on ground floor, one on first) a reasonable sized double and good sized twin room. All bedrooms had high quality ensuites, 2 with baths.
Separate utility room with washing machine and drier.
The furnishings and fittings and fixtures were all as described and we found we were wanting for nothing (other than a blender for making fruit smoothies! - not really essential).
The gardens were very attractive and well maintained. We were blessed with reasonably good summer weather but we feel the property would also be very attractive during the winter months with the Aga and open fire. The outside seating area and table was perfect for the afternoon / evening sun and was largely sheltered from the breeze.
Although the other units were occupied we did not sense that our privacy was being encroached upon.
We also found the location very attractive - close to the Lake District attractions but at the same time offering a quiet, rural setting.
Everyone in our family, both young and old, expressed a willingness to return in the future.
We had the best holiday and the accommodation was fantastic, you guys genuinely thought of everything! The place was immaculate and the perfect set up with each of the four bedrooms having an ensuite! The only thing that would have made things easier with dogs and children would have been an enclosed garden area, but the garden area that was provided was well kept and very beautiful and a minor problem in comparison to how lovely everything else was.
