The quiet location, beautifully appointed and looked after, with a private sun trap patio, has made Bluebell cottage the best we have stayed in.
The peace and quiet, comfy bed, together with the sea air, have given us some of the best nights sleep for a long while.
The car has felt a bit neglected. We have sat on the patio with a glass of wine, watching that many goldfinches that sit on the fence. We have enjoyed watching the parachutes from the local airfield (no it is not noisy).
It is an ideal base for walks around the Leven estuary and the Cartel Peninsula but also within easy reach of the more popular areas of the lakes by car,and nearby train and boat.
The property is in the most dog friendly area, (shops /Pubs/ local residents), we have been to.
This is an excellent,well equipped,cosy property.Spotless and welcoming in all weathers. Easy access to all southern lakeland with the small village having a train station,shop,two pubs and an artisan bakery providing breakfast and late opening for hand made pizza at the weekend. Thank you Neil and Alison for a lovely stay.
Had a lovely three days visiting family and friends, using Bluebell as our base. Owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make it comfortable and homely. Lots of local information provided for those new to the area. Lovely quiet village location with lots of walking options straight from the cottage. Would highly recommend.
We've just returned home after a wk in Bluebell Cottage and what a lovely cottage it is! It was just the right size for a family of 4 & was well furnished including a fully stocked kitchen which meant we had the option to eat in as well as out during the wk. Even the dog was well catered for with a dogs bed and even a dog towel!
The local area was also lovely. Within walking distance there are a couple of pubs that serve good food and a local artisan bakery which we visited practically every morning. There's also lots of good dog walks within walking distance (such as the grounds of Holker Hall). We also visted some of the local villages such as Cartmel and Ulverstone. The kids also loved exploring the nearby beaches and woodlands but especially enjoyed Southlakes zoo (which is surprisingly cheap & not too busy this time of year).
Overall its been such a relaxing and refreshing break that we're already looking at when we can next book again!
