Reviews of OLDE BLUE BELL COTTAGES
"This is a beautiful Coach House which is extremely comfortable & homely.The facilities are fantastic & there is everything you need for self-catering. It is spotlessly clean & is finished to a high standard. There is adequate space for 6 people to sleep (including 2 chilren in bunk beds). The under-floor heating ,mood lighting & jacuzzi are lovely touches & make your stay more comfortable. It is set in a very quiet village with a playground a stone's throw away for the little ones to enjoy. The area has some lovely walks & is surrounded by lots of places of interest, Leven Hall & Sizburgh Castle to name a few. We had a very relaxing & enjoyable time at the Coach House & look forward to returning soon."
"We had three nights in this lovely coach house and wished we could have stayed longer. The living and kitchen area is all open plan but retains a real cosy welcome feel. Mary, the owner, could not have been more friendly or helpful. The house was exceptionally well equiped and tea/coffee and biscuits that was left for us on arrival was a lovely touch. The house was really well located for lots of different touristy days out and some amazing walks (including one up to the top of Heversham for stunning views which can be done straight from the front door). We would definately stay here again and hope to be back soon."
"A lovely cottage, with beautiful local walks to watch the sun set over the Lake District. Mary was very friendly and we were always able to get the tips and tricks to make the most of our time away.’"
"A lovely stay in this spacious and perfectly furnished cottage, with quick and easy access to the most scenic spots in The Lakes making for a perfect weekend break."
"We had a fantastic time - obviously staying in The Coach House was the icing on the cake and a memory we'll keep for some time. With the close proximity to the lakes and local amenities available close by, we would highly recommend The Coach House to friends and family. We had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing break... The maps, info pack and Marys' knowledge of the area really helped us plan for the coming days -it's great to have a local on hand to answer any questions!! :-) We felt very welcome and at home - can't wait till our next visit...."
