  • "This is the BEST holiday cottage we have stayed in."

    A lovely place, beautifully appointed - everything we could have wished for in the kitchen and everywhere else - and really good quality throughout. Mel is extremely accommodating and helpful - such a nice lady! We have plans to return...

  • "An exceptional 5* historic property with every modern convenience."

    Well prepared with everything you might require for a well equipped, warm and comfortable cottage stay. Super comfy bed, amazing bathroom, reliable wifi, easily controlled heating - we could go on and on !! There is excellent secure parking and the surrounding gardens have seating areas, bird feeders and in season - bluebells !! Thank you Mel for your patience regarding the TV (too modern for us but we got there eventually !!) and the welcome goodies. It was a pleasure to meet you and we will return to Bluebell Cottage.

  • "Having stayed at Bellamour (the cottage next door) previously we expected that Bluebell cottage would be furnished and equipped to a high standard and we were not disappointed."

    Mel and George have done a fantastic job with this lovely property, old world charm but with all the modern day comforts. Mel goes out of her way to make sure everything is catered for from the welcome pack to the Christmas decorations which made it feel like a real from home during the festive period. The kitchen is very well equipped and the two living rooms have log fires which provide a lovely atmosphere. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathroom is simply amazing. We were in the Midlands to visit family but if anyone was looking for a base from which to explore the local area I would strongly recommend this beautiful property.

  • "We had a lovely short stay at Bluebell Cottage."

    The owners are warm and friendly, but with a professional approach and high standards. The cottage is extremely well-equipped, the beds are super comfortable, and a bath in the luxurious bathroom is such a treat! Mel was on hand with good advice, and we had a lovely meal in the village pub. Hope we will come back and car charging (which is planned) will be another bonus.

  • "We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Bluebell cottage."

    One of the best cottages we have stayed in. The owners have thought of absolutely everything you would need. Fully equipped kitchen. Having washer/dryer was a added bonus! The beds were extremely comfortable, and the cottage is so warm & cosy. We appreciated the Welcome basket on arrival with milk, bread, cookies, butter, jam & the best eggs we have tasted. Mel & her family made us feel extremely welcome. They are all very knowledgeable to the local area for visitors, including eating places. We had an amazing evening in the Olde Dun Cow pub. We also visited the Blist Hill victorian museum on our stay (Definitely recommend) We would love to return to Bluebell Cottage.. Thank You again..
