  • "If you're looking for a quiet out of the way cottage then this is the one for you."

    Accessed via single track roads and a field track it's well away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, with only the birds and the odd tractor to disturb the peace. The cottage and hot tub are spotlessly clean and well miantained. Chris the owner is really helpful without being intrusive. What he doesn't know about the surrounding area probably isn't worth knowing! Westbury Mill Water gardens are well worth a visit if only for the superb cafe, the Red Lion in Pembridge also does a decent pub lunch. Many thanks Chris for providing such a great base for a weeks holiday

    Hi David, Thank you for all your lovely comments. It means a lot as we are committed to make sure your stay is fulfilled with happy memories. Look forward to your next stay. Kind regards Chris Property Owner

  • "Bluebell Cottage is a comfortable and well appointed cottage in a rural location."

    The owner, Chris, lives in an adjoining property, and is most helpful and informative about the local area. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well maintained. And the Hot Tub (a first for us) was an additional bonus, very relaxing. If you like bird watching you need go no further than the cottage, the Woods are full of avian activity. Likewise if you are a Stargazer the field beside the property is ideal on a clear night. This field is also a bonus. Ideal for breakfast , dinner watching the stars with a beer. Plus a good space for exercising the dog. The nearby Water Gardens are a pleasant visit. Both Leominster and Hereford are a short drive away. There are plenty of things to fill your time with in this lovely part of the country. And it was always nice to come back after a day out to relax. Thanks Chris, we would highly recommend Bluebell Cottage. Paul , Sam and Rocco

  • "Bluebell cottage was a fantastic place for us to spend our summer holiday."

    The cottage was very clean and equipped with all the essential items (and more) that was needed for our break away. The hot tub was an added bonus and was maintained to an extremely high standard by our host. The location was quiet and peaceful but a short drive to all amenities. Our host was faultless and was a pleasure to discuss various places to visit whilst there. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a truly relaxing place to stay which is maintained to the highest of standards.

    Hi William, glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Bluebell cottage. Look forward to seeing you soon and always happy to help with advice etc so you can enjoy your time at Broxwood Barn cottages. Kind regards Chris Property Owner

    The hot tub was very well maintained and the cottage was very well equipped. Our dog enjoyed the use of the one acre area to play, the enclosed garden and even has some serious post holiday blues!

  • "The owner was courteous, helpful and unobtrusive."

    Thanks, Chris. There was a minor problem with a leaking shower tray which I understand is to be addressed during the winter months. A broom and dustpan and brush would be useful: grass clippings from the acre field get into the hall on one's boots, however hard one tries to avoid it. The underfloor heating is effective but a focal point in the living area to sit around would make it feel cosier. The hot tub was a good way to relax after a long walk.

  • "Chris the owner was a great host."

    Right from the start he showed us around and explained how things worked. The holiday was what we needed. Piece and quiet, giving us time to relax. We took our two dog's with us Tier twelve year old German Shepherd and Betty a seven month Golden doodle. Both had a brilliant time. Betty had a safe field to play on next to the cottage and Tier gentle walks down the track. Also an enclosed garden behind the cottage so we didn't have to worry about them getting out unsupervised. The human part of the holiday consisted of lots of bubbles in the hot tub and plenty of nanna naps in the afternoon. Many thanks Chris, Chris Tier and Betty

    Hi Chris, Chris, Tier and Betty, thank you for your wonderful review and I'm very happy you enjoyed Bluebell cottage. It was lovely seeing you and Betty playing in our acre field. Kind regards Chris Property Owner

    Clean, comfortable and cosy cottage tucked away down quiet country lanes, away from it all. The luxury and novelty of the hot tub to come home to. Plenty of lovely and/or interesting places to visit within a few miles radius. We had a lovely week's holiday.

  • "Fantastic stay."

    Highly recommended this holiday cottage. Have to say that Chris has been one of the nicest and most consciousness owners we've ever dealt with. The hot tub is lovely and is a good quality one. The outside area with the picnic bench is great and Chris put out alot of garden games for us which my little girl loved. It really is right in the countryside and blissfully quiet. An utter joy. Previous reviews have mentioned the poor wifi there. Chris has taken steps to improve this somewhat. To be honest based on the previous reviews ( before we realised the wifi had been improved ) we had decided to have a few days of as little tech as possible. Too much time is spent staring at mobile phones. If you have mobile everyone assumes it's OK to contact you when they like. It was lovely just hanging out as a family with both our phones offline. The cottage just seems to promote a good family vibe. 5 star rating for this holiday home and very very highly recommended!! Look forward to returning when we can!! Thanks again Chris Cheers Jim

    Hi Jim, thank you for your fantastic review and we look forward to welcoming you and your family soon. As Jim says we have improved from last owner in the last year from 0.35mbs to 20mbs. I have a new system to install to the 2 cottages. I fitted the same system to our house on the complex and we are receiving upto 60mbs. We will then introduced chrome cast or fire sticks so you can watch your own entertainment. Chris Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at Bluebell cottage."

    The cottage was very clean with everything required for a comfortable stay. The large grassed area to the side of the cottage was great to play football, swing ball and badminton with all equipment provided by the host Chris. The hot tub was spotless and was tested twice a day, hot tub towels were provided as extra to the towels used everyday. The cottage is rural enough so that you can enjoy the peace and quiet, but is within driving distance (15mins) to local amenities . We enjoyed take away from the local Indian restaurant in Weobley and locally made cheese from the shop in Monkland. Chris was a great host, nothing was to much trouble. Hoping to go back soon!

    Chris our host was very attentive, showing us around the cottage, providing a lovely welcome package of tea, coffee, biscuits, milk and dog treats as well as recommendations of where to eat and what to do. The hot tub was fab, we loved relaxing in it as a family after a busy day of walking or canoeing. There is also a big field right next to the 2 cottages which is fab for dogs and kids to play in! Would definitely recommend!

    Chris was a fantastic host, so welcoming and friendly and always kept on top of cleaning and maintaining the hot-tub for us twice a day! Greeted us with a flowers, tea and coffee making stuff, milk and some cakes! Such a lovely touch. The views from the Cottage we’re incredible and the lack of light pollution meant the star gazing from the hot-tub was delightful. Such a treat to be able to enjoy this Honestly the only noise we could hear was the singing of the birds! We’ve all come back feeling refreshed. Thank you for the most amazing stay Chris!!!

  • "We had an amazing week at Bluebell Cottage."

    Before our holiday started we were contacted by the owner about our arrival time and were given the location based on what3words. This made it much easier to find, as the cottage is in a beautifully secluded spot overlooking ancient woodland. Arrangements were also made for our daughter, Beekeeper Cottage's children and the owner's grandchildren to participate in some Halloween fun. This initial contact and attention to detail set the tone for the whole break. On arrival we were met by Chris and shown around a meticulously clean property. There was a welcome basket for us of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits. This was much appreciated. As was the welcome basket for our dog. Chris showed us how to use the hot tub and the secure meadow he has for us to run the dog in. We had a good chat with him about his plans to re-introduce our British bees into the eco-system rather than the 1000s of imported Queen bees. He was very passionate about this, and wish him all the best, as it will make a huge difference to the area. The property being in a beautifully secluded area, overlooking farmland and ancient woodland made it the perfect down time retreat. The property has wifi, but it isn't as fast as we get at home, as Chris explained this was due to the ISP. For us this was not an issue at all, as it meant we were away from any screens. The perfect way to enjoy family games and some DVDs. Relaxing in the hot tub of an evening was spot on. A hot tub that was checked on twice a day. On our penultimate night Chris bought over a pumpkin and some templates for our daughter to carve, along with candles. We arranged a little trick or treat for our last night around the three properties. The children all had a ball, dressing up and exchanging sweets on our last night. Chris and his family also put on a small Halloween display in the meadow. Chris recommended different places we could visit. We went Gruffalo hunting in Queenswood, wandered around Berrington Hall (NT so take your cards), Stokesay Castle, Ludlow Castle and explored the local picture postcard villages, got cheese from the local artisan producer and some local cider from Dunkertons. So pack your sturdy boots and go amd explore the area, it is stunning. Nothing was too much effort for Chris, he was keen to make sure everyone's holiday was the best it could be. His attention to detail made sure of that. Thank you for a fab week away, we wish you all the best with the bees.

  • "We have just returned from a very relaxing weeks stay at the cottage which is nestled deep in the countryside, giving us a quiet relaxing retreat surrounded by nature."

    Chris met us on arrival and ran through the facilities, which included a small but ample fenced garden to the rear. Which overlooked a paddock with horses in framed by an ancient wood with birds of prey circling above it. In the graded is your private hot tub which is checked and cleaned twice a day by Chris, having a dog this was a safe space to allow him to be off the lead. There is also a small table and parasol with 4 chairs and two relaxing chairs, as well as a day bed in the recess. To the side of the cottages is a field with a pick nick table and lots of room to play games. Also on arrival we had been left a welcome pack of milk, tea, coffee and some biscuits, as well as a dog welcome pack which included a bowl, lead, towel, cool mat and a bag of treats which Roscoe was very grateful for, and is a very nice touch. The cottage is well supplied for comfortable and relaxing self catering and is a perfect base to explore the county of Hertfordshire. The cottage has had a refurb for this year and is in very good condition with all safety aspects in place. We visited a number of places and I would suggest joining the national Trust, as a family its £126 for the year which gives you free entry and parking to all of there sites. To spend the day at one venue is around £34 so it pays for itself very quickly. Croft castle and Whitley park and gardens are a must. There is a small artisan cheese maker about 4 miles from the cottage and on some days you can have a tour to be shown how they make the cheese. If you like your cheese this is a place to visit. Leominster is a lovely small town to wonder around, with a large selection of independent butchers and grocers along with coffee shops, restaurants and dog friendly pubs. A great holiday away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life and Chris makes you feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you arrive, we will definitely return in the future.

    Chris (our host) was always on hand if we ever needed some advice or recommendations. The cottage had everything we wanted - and more besides! Our two daughters loved the games & DVDs that were in there and we all enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings too. There were so many lovely places to visit; we thought Ludlow was beautiful, Hereford too. Lots of wonderful things to see and villages to walk around. Go-karting at Weobley was the girls' favourite activity but also the steak night in the Pembridge Red Lion was fantastic (and amazing value for money!). All in all, a wonderful holiday & it was so lovely having Bluebell Cottage to come home to at the end of a long day.

    A perfect getaway from the hectic daily grind! Off the beaten track but really well appointed and the fact the Internet was not so good made it an ideal escape! The hot tub was brilliant and so relaxing. A perfect enclosed space if you have a dog. The owner is very friendly and helpful and welcomed us and our dog and is meticulous in keeping the hot tub safe and clean for our use. I would highly recommend this holiday for an escape to the countryside and so much so that we are looking to book again next year.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday at bluebell cottage."

    It is set in an idyllic part of Herefordshire, right in the middle of a farm. The surrounding area was absolutely delightful - there was a beautiful natural meadow right beside the house with a picnic table right in the middle, and we enjoyed a picnic there most days. In the evenings, we walked around the huge fields and watched the sky turn red as the sun set. A short drive away is Leominster and Hereford, which has all the hustle and bustle you need if you would like a change of scenery. The hot tub was absolutely fabulous - it is a real hot tub, not just one of the inflatable ones, and the owner checks it every day. Speaking of which, the owner Chris was absolutely fantastic. He was always available for any questions, and is a very interesting chap- we talked at length about his project to reinvigorate the surrounding areas with UK native bees, so that we are less reliant on European bees. Chris even kindly posted back some clothes that we had left in the tumble dryer, extremely kind! While we were there, the WiFi was the only slight hiccup. I had a little bit of work to do while there, but unfortunately the WiFi wasn’t strong enough to hold a connection. Chris explained that this was due to the ISP letting them down, and that high speed Fibre broadband was on its way. In any case, once we got over the initial adjustment of ‘putting down our phones’, we felt that the lack of distraction helped us to focus on the beauty of the area and to have more of a tech free holiday, which was lovely. Thanks Chris for a wonderful stay.
