A charming 3 bedroom cottage in the countryside that accommodated 3 adults and 2 children suberbly!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights on a weekend bank holiday recently and throughly enjoyed our stay. James and Toni were wonderful hosts and couldn't do enough to help us make the most of our stay. It was a great touch they had hot cross buns ready on the table when we arrived along with milk in the fridge!

The accommodation is clean, great comfortable beds and a shower you feel like staying in forever.

As it is a working farm it's great for families who have kids if they wish to see some of the animals 🐄?🐴?as James is only too happy to take you for a wander. Unfortunately our two missed their chance due to over packed days out and opening of the heavens ☔

Keep up the good and I would highly recommend to others as it is good value for money 👍?

Lovely accommodation close to York

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation very clean and fully equipped. Owner very welcoming and even took the children round to see the animals. It's only a twenty minute drive to the park and ride at most and the price difference is massive. The only criticism would be there is very limited comfortable seating as other than the dining room table there is only one large sofa but it didn't really matter that much for a two night stay. Overall I would stay again without hesitating.

Owner's Response: Hi Anne Thankyou for your comments about your stay at Bluebell Cottage. The issue regarding the comfortable seating has been raised before and is clearly something we need to deal with. I now fully appreciate that seating is limited for the possibility of a booking for 6 adults. Glad you enjoyed your stay and your visit to York with your family. Many thanks James

Property perfect for our stay, lovely hosts, even thought to put some milk in the fridge, kindly offered to show the children the calves that had been born during the night! Would highly recommend if you are looking to stay in the area, very convenient for the Park and Ride into York. Would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, beautifully presented and very helpful owners. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was that more comfortable seating in the lounge area would have been nice for our party of 4 adults. We would definitely stay here again.
