  • "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.

  • "Chris is a fantastic host, from the initial welcome to the cottage which was a personal touch we really appreciated, he made us feel like we had a home from home."

    The cottage was beautifully presented with all the amenities and utensils you could need, and even had a welcome basket for the dog which was very thoughtfully packed. The hot tub was cleaned and maintained to a very high standard and the games field next door provided hours of fun and became a real standout for our trip, in addition to the private BBQ. This cottage was the perfect backdrop for our bank holiday weekend away and we hope to come back soon!

  • "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.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in Bluebell Cottage."

    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.

  • "This was what I would call the ideal holiday."

    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.

  • "The listing on the Sykes website is wrong - the pictures on the website were out of date although I understand this has been updated since our stay."

    In addition, the information was wrong regarding the facilities on Sykes is wrong - there is a hot tub per cottage but there are no kids climbing frame or trampoline. Owner is really helpful and the cottage is really nice.

  • "A wonderful stay and look forward to returning."

    Chris was always on hand if you needed him, he was great at helping to get the BBQ started!! Had breakfast in the sunny garden, lunch out in the huge selection of places to eat whilst out and about, and dinner back at the relaxing cottage followed by a chill out in the super clean hot tub. Just perfect for time out from a busy work schedule. Thanks muchly for a memorable stay.

  • "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.
