  • "Very happy with all aspects of holiday other than the shower floor in the smaller bedroom needs some attention and a knock the morning of our checkout would of been great as we were in the kitchen and someone was to the rear of the property were the hot tub was."

    We understood things needed doing but just a little warning would of been nice.

    The only negative was the hot tub wasn’t working the whole time we were there, we chose this property because of the hot tub and I’m sure we will have paid extra for this feature,very disappointing. Mandy

  • "We had an amazing stay in Bluebell cottage, the decor was done to a high standard, it was spotless and incredibly comfortable."

    I did have an issue with the cctv camera and had contacted Sykes when I read other reviews about it, I wanted to know if the cameras were only for use when the cottages were empty but Sykes couldn't get hold of the owners after several attempts, I was offered the chance to cancel my booking but I decided I still wanted to go! Couple of things we felt the cottage could do with, hairdryer, barbecue, plastic glasses for the hot tub and a net to get the creepy crawlies out the hot tub! I spoke to the lovely maintenance man about the garden furniture been in the front garden rather than the back and he said guests keep moving it there but he did say he would have moved it into the back if we had mentioned it earlier. I would recommend this cottage and would return to it myself.

  • "We had a fantastic week."

    The property was very clean and comfortable. Set out with extremely comfortable beds, and a soft snuggly sofa. The kitchen is well stocked. The only issue was the microwave which didn't heat food up properly, then overheated and turned its self off for a few minutes. The hot tub was wonderful and there were automatic outdoor lights when it got dark. It is possible to hear the neighbours talking when in the living room, as walls are quite thin. Bangs of the doors, echo upstairs too. The surrounding area is quiet and as you park off the main road, it is easy to go out for the day and avoid heavy traffic. If you are hoping the pub is close enough to walk to its not, but there is a pizza takeaway you can walk to. Overall a fantastic break away in a cosy cottage.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Bluebell Cottage."

    Overall it's lovely and comfortable and made a great base for the week. The cottage was refurbished in 2016 and is fairly well maintained. Beds and sofa are comfortable. Hot tub is showing signs of wear and tear but didn't stop us from enjoying and using it. Having the option of the adjoining door is great for larger groups, but it did mean that we could hear every conversation and phone call our neighbours had and they could likely hear us too. The furthest we ventured was up to Pooley Bridge on Ullswater which is 1.45 hr drive from the cottage with current road closures that last until 2024. There are some great places to visit within an hour's drive of the cottage on Windermere and Coniston.

    Thought the internal layout was excellent and spacious. Loved being able to have the choice of bath tub or shower both en-suite. Also views from both bedrooms great in different ways! Also must not forget to mention how lovely it was to have your own private hot tub.

  • "We had a really lovely stay here and the property was clean and welcoming."

    There was 1 minor improvement which is needed: the bathroom door in 1 bedroom was very stiff and therefore made a horrendous loud noise when trying to close - not ideal during the night time. Otherwise I would have liked to give a 5* review however there is CCTV directly pointing to the hot tub (with full view of entering the hot tub and the garden) which is NOT specified anywhere when booking or within the house (I checked thoroughly). This immediately made our party feel uncomfortable and therefore not enjoyable as this is an invasion of privacy. It is within my understanding that you cannot record someone without notice, however there are lots of similar previous reviews therefore doesn't seem that the owner is rectifying this. For this reason, I would not recommend this property as I find this very strange.

    The sofas are comfy but do seem in need for a replacement, up on arrival the heating was off and took all evening & night to heat up, but once it was hot it stayed lovely and warm throughout our stay. The TV in the lounge is quite slow, but it did not impact our stay. The beds were so comfy, and the en suite bathrooms were nice and clean. The hot tub was such a treat and we would recommend property for a nice relaxing weekend.

  • "We had a really disappointing experience at Bluebell Cottage."

    The listing and price point imply you will be getting a higher end cottage but unfortunately the reality does not match up with expectations. After reading some of the previous reviews it is clear the owners do not listen to feedback or address issue’s highlighted by previous guests. The settee is still broken, there still isn’t an adequate starter pack for the fire (just a few logs and a bit of kindling - no matches or firelighters), the heating is sporadic, the cottage was dirty (rubbish left in wardrobes, dust thick enough to write in and the cottage smelt), the oven door still comes off and their are still cameras pointing at the hot tub. To add a new one…the dishwasher only works intermittently and is very difficult to get on when it does. All in all a very disappointing stay. We would not return.

  • "We absolutely loved our time at the Bluebell cottage."

    We arrived on the Monday and had a chilled day after a long drive. A few drinks after dinner we were in our very comfy beds passed out. The private hot tub helped massively our time here after long days out and about, the facilities were great for our needs and clean too. The cottage has amazing views and weren't too far away from what we had planned to do the Tuesday and Wednesday, I highly recommend the safari and the steam train to Windemere. The cottage has great location as a base and I got bonus points with the inlaws by choosing here and volunteering to drive on the Wednesday. We got the weather eventhough it was September. The bath was amazing too The cottage itself had only 2 flaws, one of the sofas sounded like the wood was needing repaired and the floor needed a brush when we arrived. The other issues aren't their fault but I'll mention as a pre-warning. The beach isn't soft sand so take wellies, the week we went the manure was being sprayed so one night we couldn't use the hot tub because there wasn't any wind blowing away the smell and kettle takes ages to heat up water for tea I honestly hope to come back here in the near future, especially in the summer and for longer as there's so much to do also it's a great get away if you need away from a hectic lifestyle. We feel so recharged after it all

  • "Absolutely fantastic property."

    We stay in the highlands, my sister and her fella stay in London, so it was a great meeting point. Exactly as the property is described. I was a little concerned after reading a few bits of feedback, however on arrival to the property couldn’t believe what a little gem it was and such a reasonable price for all we had. Had an amazing seven day stay, cooked twice in the property a full English breakfast and a evening meal no issues. Ventured out practically every day. went boulder hopping to the local pub twice The farmers baycliff which is fantastic find, great staff and fantastic food. The road outside isn’t particularly busy but it is a very fast road so anybody with children I would recommend supervising when leaving the property. Straight across from the property are walks, beautiful scenery and loads of outdoor space. Found the property really clean. Sofa bed under the window moves when you first sit on it however very comfortable and as long as you don’t spend your entire stay on it, not an issue. Shower in the bedroom overlooking the front of the property the grout around the plug is starting to give way. never had an issue with flooding as we put the foot towel in front of the shower to stop it splashing out. Due to extremely high winds the boiler went off our second night so the following day there was minimal hot water however the response on a Sunday from the owners was fantastic and because we wash regularly to go without a shower for four hours wasn’t the end of the world. Hot tub is a great addition, as previously stated by another visitor somewhere to hang towels outside would be a bonus, we took the drying rack out and just placed our towels on that. We had a young couple stay next door, the only time we heard them was when our bedroom window was open fully because of the hot weather and their bedroom window was wide open, no impact on our stay. Took a walk down to the moat farm, who do takeaway food. we popped in for ice cream. The blind in the bedroom with the bath in front of the window is white and let’s a lot of light in, so we used the base to the cot to prop up in front of the window to help black it out, again not a major issue. Would definitely recommend, will definitely be back, Really enjoyable week, fantastic property.

  • "As I'm allegic to dust, noticed as soon as I entered I started sneezing."

    Surfaces had alot of dust on them. There were ants in the kitchen and the 2 seater sofa felt as if it was about to break every time you sat down. One of the bathroom showers (the one overlooking the front of the property) didn't drain very well so when showering you ended up with overspill into the rest of the bathroom. The other bathroom door was stiff and stuck slightly when closing. Not a major issue but the noise it made did made you cringe slightly. Enjoyed our stay but due to the location on the road, not able to walk anywhere and a car would be needed to venture out.

    Thank you for your feedback. It's a shame to hear that as we have never had these issues before and have been noted to our excellent cleaning team. The issues mentioned were very quick fixes that would've been attended to if the owner was informed during your stay. Additionally a new sofa was ordered to the property after your comments. Thank you again for the feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "The property, on face value, looks really nice."

    Beautiful views and well equipped property. The let down, and will prevent a return visit, is the following points. A very cold front bedroom that has a hole in the apex which allows a loud whistling of the wind and noise if the traffic through preventing sleep. The pillows are hard and lack any comfort, ended up using a blanket. There is a chip in a few tiles of the bathrooms. The bath in the front bedroom is nice, however, on emptying it the draining making such a loud noise that you cannot hear the tv (or the wind from the roof) for a minute or 2. The heating is very hit and miss, either too hot or too cold. Warning, nothing heats the front bedroom, its the hole that needs fixing. Only one sofa is usable as the other sofa is broken, On our return, reading other feedback, this has been the case since at least July 2021. All sounds from next door can be heard, everything, including general conversations. Definitely not peaceful This is not luxury, its nice, but definitely not luxury or worth the price we paid for the stay. How is that restful, peaceful or relaxing when you feel heard by neighbours, unable to sit where you want and unable to sleep in the bedroom of choice. So, what was meant to be a quiet, relaxing weekend ended up not being the case and spoilt a major part of our stay and treat of a break. The accommodation was not relaxing and definitely not peaceful or luxurious as stated in the description. Very disappointed

    The garden area at the front and back of the property is a great size. The location is wonderful. When there was issues with the property, the turnaround time was amazing and the issues were quickly remedied by really lovely people. It is a shame there’s only 1 dvd player and it isn’t downstairs as it would be lovely to relax watching tv in front of the fire, Freeview is a bit lacklustre. Smart tv’s with even just iPlayers would make a big difference. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Third night no sleep as the ladies were partying until 4 am shouting “Alexa” for their music all night. Plus the frying pan is not compatible with the hob. Rooms were roasting hot, maybe supply a fan. Plus problem with flies. There weee loads of them snd two bottles of fly spray did not get rid of them.

    There were dirty towels in both rooms, smears on the showers and sinks in both bathrooms and the bed sheets were also stained. There was also left over food in the microwave. The owners confirmed they were not expecting anyone till 4 days later which led us to believe the cottage had been double booked as we had booked for 7nights - at this point the cleaners were booked to arrive the following morning and we were offered vouchers for a later date so we did not cause a fuss. On the third day we attempted to use the hot tub which was in a very bad state. The handles on the lid were torn and the lid itself looked as if it was broken in places. We decided to avoid using it and to speak to the owners however the lid got jammed between the hot tub and the wall and despite our best efforts we could not pull it out. In the end we had to wait over an hour for someone to come to force the lid out, which required someone jumping on the lid to force it to move. This caused it to break apart even more and resulted in the hot tub water becoming cluttered with foam and dirt from the lid. We were reasured that someone will come to drain and restore the tub with a new lid the following day, but this did not happen. We then had to leave a day early due to circumstances at home, the owners promised a 50% refund due to the poor experience we had during our stay. It is now 2 months down the line and we have yet to receive the refund despite trying to chase this with the owners who are now not resonding to messages. The cottage itself is beautiful and is perfectly located and with the option to connect the linked cottages it was ideal for a larger family visit. Unfortunately due to the poor service we will not be visiting any of these cottages again.

    ..it really has been finished to a very high standard and was all the luxury we hoped for. Unfortunately this was over shadowed with an issue with the drains which left us disappointed with the experience of having to report an issue and not really getting much back. I was told they have had no issue with the cottages of late and I can imagine that to be the case. They did send someone to see us, he left us with drain unblocker which didnt work. So for the weekend we were unable to use both showers, we had to get more drain unblocker, the toilets were not flushing as they should and one bathroom floor remained soaked all weekend. Initially I had called thinking the owner would appreciate knowing the situation as it could be damaging the bathroom and also that we were paying customers experiencing a problem. It appears neither were of concern. I called back to update having used the drain unblocker and was told they would do their best but hadnt had any issues all year. From that point I have had no contact at all. I have sent an email as I'd rather deal with the issue in private but I've had no reply. I wanted to let them know how disappointing this situation has been for us all as it overshadowed what could have been an amazing stay in what has the chance to be a wonderful cottage.

  • "Was exactly as described down to the letter, absolutely no issues at all, my only request would be that on the website you could put no bathroom amenities maybe as I have e never stayed in a place like this before it's not expected but I was expecting soap for the bathroom for a bath/shower which wasn't available however a short drive fixed that and it was a perfect weekend, thank you."

    Stunning views from the bedrooms and a hot tub in the garden to top it off! Beds were incredibly comfortable. We have stayed at daisy cottage before so wanted to try bluebell and it did not disappoint. Would definitely go back again!

    The bathroom tiles were very very slippery when wet and we would recommend you bring a bath mat overall nice cottage with peaceful surroundings

  • "A few things in the listing not entirely accurate."

    Listing says a pub is a one mile walk away. The nearest pub is at least two miles and with young children definitely not walkable. The road has no pavements and is quite treacherous to walk on. Also DVD player listed is t plugged into anything....with good reason. It can’t be used with2 out of 3 of the TVs. Not ideal. Only compatible solution was in one bedroom. Would have been nice to have somewhere to sit outside in back garden where hot tub is. Saves people dropping all over the house and presumably sitting wet in the sofa. The house had a strange smell possibly from previous user cooking spicy food or possibly from adjoining property. Not sure. And the bathroom tiles upstairs are high gloss which makes them frighteningly slippy when wet......there are no duck boards or bath mats so you just have to be VERY careful! It’s a beautiful location with the beach very close. Quite isolated. Not sure I would return but I did enjoy our holiday. I think by listening to the feedback from their clients the owners could make this place really brilliant.

  • "We loved the cottage with the exception of the internal door which leads to adjoining cottage."

    We could hear all conversations which our neighbours were having so obviously vice versa. This resulted in us feeling a lack of privacy and unable to relax. Also another disadvantage was the parking facilities. One more point is the kick board under the sink unit. It needs attention. Apart from these points everything else was amazing.

    One word of caution, we were unfortunate to have a couple of days of really bad rain, not really a problem as this is England but it did bring out some of the country smells ig you get my meaning that meant we decide not to use the hot tub. Speaking of the hot tub, it did spring a leak when we were there, but full credit to the owners once we let them know the organised someone to come around and fix the issue within the hour, pithy it just to two attempts to resolve the issue. On the whole, a nice cottage well kept and well equipped but, just missing that little bit extra,

    The location is simply perfect for exploring The Lakes with the added bonus of being along the coast road with sea views. The weather was extremely kind to us, cold but with lots of sunshine which enabled us to make the most of each day. The cottage was warm, cosy and well equipped with everything we needed. Really comfy sofas and beds. Taking a bath whilst watching the cows and sheep in the field was something we don't get to do everyday and of course, the hot-tub was a great hit with the whole family. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful, we have simply had a most wonderful holiday. Thank You!

    It could be even better with a few minor additions:- Bath sheets instead of bath towels, a shelf for toiletries and a bin in the bathrooms. One other thing to note is that the walls between the adjoining cottages seem to be very thin and if you have noisy neighbours you can hear them. All that aside we had a fantastic time at the cottage, loved the hot tub and we enjoyed fantastic weather too so we felt totally relaxed. Loved it!

About the location

ALDINGHAM

Ulverston 5 miles.

On the coast looking across to Morecambe Bay is the small village of Aldingham, said to have once been a mile long but, as legend says, many of the early cottages were washed away by storms and tidal waves. Aldingham had the reputation of being a smugglers’ village, with brandy from France and tobacco from America supposedly hidden in the church crypt. The village is close to the spectacular Furness Abbey, and the ancient market town of Ulverston is just 5 miles away, and still has an authentic feel and community spirit. The town boasts a street market every Thursday and Saturday and many festivals throughout the year, including an amazing lantern procession in September and a superb Dickensian weekend on the last weekend of November. It is also the birthplace of Stan Laurel and home to the only Laurel and Hardy museum in the world! With all the attractions of the Lake District National Park and the sandy beaches and good birdwatching of the Furness coast close by, this quiet and peaceful area has plenty to offer!
