All the ingredients for a perfect break - lovely cottage, stunning views, excellent hosts and a fantastic welcome pack (loved the cake)! There are too many 'plus points' to list, but suffice to say we had a wonderful relaxing stay and will definitely be returning.

Lovely relaxing stay, will miss the view, peace and tranquility. Thoroughly recommend The Bluebell, fabulous meal and if you don't fancy driving use Amber Taxis. Thank you for the welcome pack, the cake was delicious.

A wonderful 5 star luxury cottage. We loved the decor, the great beds, the views. Family roast was enjoyed overlooking the wonderful valley. Thank you Amanda & Martin! And that cake was the cherry!! BEST EVER.

This is the most beautiful cottage with the most amazing views. The owners Amanda and Martin made us feel very welcome. There are not many places I have been to that have bought a tear to my ear upon leaving.

GailB

Fabulous cottage, idyllic location, the cottage has everything we needed for a relaxing stay from hot tub, perfect hosts to the high spec features. So close to the M1 yet nestled in beautiful countryside.
