RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
We have just returned from a lovely week in Bluebell cottage. The cottage was clean and really well equipped. Hot tub was fantastic in a private garden. The upstairs is definitely the 'wow' part of the cottage offering lovely quiet, relaxing, luxurious space, the photos on the website hadn't shown off quite how airy and spacious the rooms are. The bed is definitely the most comfortable I have ever slept in which is unusual for holiday accommodation. The views from the bedrooms are fantastic, we loved waking up to the horses, cows, corn field, sea, it was perfect.
The only negatives for us was the adjoining door to next doors cottage downstairs, luckily the family next door were quiet but could hear general conversation, the television and also smell food that they were cooking. It just made us paranoid about disturbing them too. The water temperature could do with turning up a little to be able to enjoy the luxurious baths, this wasn't a big enough issue to be bothering anyone with though and would definitely not prevent us visiting this beautiful accommodation again.
The setting is perfect, only a few minutes into Barrow or to Ulverston, we discovered Walney close by which was perfect for the children, lots of open space with large play area. An all round lovely place to be!
Fabulous short break - stunning views
We decided on a short getaway, absolutely gorgeous cottage, the decor and facilities so good. We loved the bedrooms so much daughter and I had to toss a coin on which one we got. Seriously lovely great location, stunning views, but if luxury with hot tub. Will be booking again. Loved it thank you.
On arrival at the cottage it was clear that it had not been cleaned since the last occupants. 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.
A big thank you for a wonderful family holiday
We have had a wonderful time staying at Bluebell Cottage. Perfect place to explore The Lakes together with the contrast of being by the coast. The cottage was perfect....comfy sofas, such comfy beds and baths with a view! Looking at the odd review about noise levels, the cottage is not remote and is part of a group of 4 cottages and so our expectations were that we would have neighbours for the week.
All 4 cottages were occupied for the week we stayed and we can say that having neighbours did not impact on our enjoyment of the cottage at all! The hot-tub was an added bonus too! Cottage was warm, cosy, had everything you needed and much more. We shall be coming back for sure! Thank You! The Rob-Moggs xx
Extremely noisy and heating out of control.
This is a beautiful looking cottage but don't be fooled! We went to stay for a week over Christmas as near my sisters. The cottage was extremely cold and took 3 days to heat up. The underfloor heating did not relate to the thermostat and and once warm it was unbearably Hot. We all slept in our underwear despite the minus figures out side. What ever we did seemed to have no affect on a mind of its own heating system. The rooms upstairs also were in a temperature zone of their own again either freezing or boiling. A real nightmare with kids. The right hand bedroom with large window never warmed up we could feel a draft the whole time. My daughter was so cold in there that we all ended up in one bedroom. The other major no no for me was the noise from the strong winds outside and surrounding cottages. It felt like being on a boat in the Atlantic. You could here nieghbours on both sides and below the bedroom. I felt like we were on the road as we could hear the cars roar by. Sound proofing an oversight here I feel. The layout is a bit strange too the bin in the dining area and the fridge in the hall way. Was constantly opening doors trying to cook a Boxing Day meal. And carrying dripping teabags to the bin. The dishwasher was also broken so a lot of washing up. But to be honest Noise and heating ruined this week for us. Thank goodness I packed my earplugs cos boy do you need them at this place. We did approach the company we booked it through Sykes who were lovely but basically told us the landlord was not interested. It's important to call these people out as at £700.00 a week this should have been a lot better. Off to get some sleep in my less noisy and warm (but not boiling) london abode.
