Lovely Quirky Property but soooo noisy.

  • 2 of 5

If they had told us the church clock right across the road chimed every quarter of an hour 24/7 we would not have booked. Did not get much sleep during our week there. Everything else was ok apart from the hobbit doors. Even my wife had to bend to access the doors and if you forgot to duck you were rewarded with a headache.

A quirky wee cottage beautifully renovated to a high standard

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, our two children and my parents. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very well equipped in the kitchen with everything you could need for self catering. Nicely surprised with the addition of tea, coffee, soap and toilet rolls. Comfy beds and lots of tvs! The fishing nets supplied were fantastic to keep the kids entertained down by the river!

My only suggestion would be to pack some earplugs though as the church across the road chimes every 15minutes including throughout the night!!!

Very good but lacked some basic essentials.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage location and style were delightful and certainly suited our needs. However we were disappointed that:

- on arrival most of the crockery was still in the dishwasher;

- there was no soap in neither the kitchen nor bathroom;

- no kitchen roll

- only one tea towel

- no bath towels - only large hand towels

- nasty smell from kitchen sink plug hole

- we usually have welcome packs on arrival. There is tea and coffee but milk would have been nice.

- family members were staying in nearby b&b’s and all had luxury toiletries and a welcome pack of milk biscuits and fruit

The door handle to the lower lounge is broken and almost unusable. The door latch in the largest bedroom could be fixed with one screw.

The picnic and fishing nets are a really lovely idea but with a bit of extra effort at minimal cost as outlined above the cottage could be exceptional.

Comfortable, relaxing but quirky cottage with lovely decor

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is as stated above but for our party there were two downsides - the stairs and the dining/kitchen being up those stairs. Three of our party of five had slight mobility issues and having to negotiate those stairs just to get a cup of tea, let alone bring it downstairs to the lounge was a very inconvenient.

On the upside Bluebell Cottage is ideally situated for lots of places of interest to suit all ages .

Charming

Three generations of my family and I stayed here for the weekend and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We can recommend the Bella Vista and had lots of fun at the White Hart pub.
