Couple from Hinckley, United Kingdom Sep 2022

After an absence of three years it was lovely to be back at Bluebell Cottage. The cottage is comfortable, cosy and well equipped, the area quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Many thanks and full marks to Andrew for his fast response when the fridge broke down! It was replaced with a new one the following day. Look forward to returning.

Nice clean and comfortable cottage in an excellent location. Not really an outlook from inside the cottage but when you step outside onto the cottage grounds you get wonderful views. Good response from owner to any communications we made.


Family from Huddersfield, United Kingdom Jul 2021

Our 3rd time at Bluebell and still perfect even with an extra little one this time! Plenty of space, lots of storage for all those bits and pieces, extremely clean with clear covid instructions and stunning location. So much to do in the area too, we love it!


Friends from Holmfirth, United Kingdom Jun 2021

Stayed in Bluebell Cottage for a week with a couple of friends. The cottage was very comfy in a lovely peaceful setting. Plenty hot water, great kitchen, good wifi, Plenty parking, everything you need really. The cottage is furnished well, with comfy beds, a bit dated in certain areas but we didn't mind. The main bonus is that it was dog friendly and we don't expect spick and span with a dog so all in all it was excellent. Rothbury and Bluebell cottage was a great place to explore the surrounding areas, there are some lovely paths right from the door! There was no chopping board in the kitchen and the clocks needed new batteries but that's all I could fault it for. We will definitely look at booking again. All in all for the price a solid 8/10 from us all.
