“Lovely relaxing chill out week”
Reviewed June 10, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a fabulous cottage, we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Fresh flowers and the provision of tea, coffee, milk etc all available on arrival is a very special touch, not normally expected. The cottage was beautifully clean, bright and modern inside. Ideally situated, it took us no more than 30-45 minutes each day to visit places of interest, ie Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Bourton on the Water etc. a wonderful place hidden from the hustle and bustle of city life. Will hope to visit again. Thank you so much.

“Wonderful Cottage”
Reviewed March 6, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a wonderful stay in this delightful cottage. Thank you Karen for the little extra touches wine, flowers and postcards etc., much appreciated. It really is a home from home, so so comfy. The fire ( which we lit most evenings) was really the iceing on the cake, so cosy. You wont be disappointed I can assure you. We are planning our return sooner rather than later.

“Our Home from Home!”
Reviewed January 10, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Such a beautiful cottage, village, area! We have stayed here twice and loved it on both occasions. The cottage is beautiful inside and out, has everything you would ever need, and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful.

“Charming cottage in delightful village”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

It's a bit like living on the set of an English TV show, you know, the one with the little row of thatched cottages overlooking a bucolic setting an artist dreams of. Down the road to the right a ninth century church with the female Vicar and to the left after a 50 metre walk you're at the Falkland Arms pub run by the best publican in the world. What more can you ask for but the perfect little home to come back to after a stroll through the fields or a drink at the local.
The cottage has a homely and relaxed atmosphere and provides three bedrooms , two are Double bedrooms (not Queen) and one a single. An open fireplace with stocked woodheap makes for a cosy night in and a well stocked kitchen for cooking something special to eat at the dining table.
I can't imagine anyone ever being disappointed with Bluebell Cottage.

“Beautiful cottage”
Reviewed December 10, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Beautiful traditional thatched cottage, very cosy, lovely walks and great pub down the road.
Cottage well stocked with kitchen equipment, books, few DVDs.
Bedrooms are small (it was a bit of a squeeze for 5 adults sharing) but this adds to the overall feel of the cottage.
Thanks for a lovely weekend.

“Cottage Paradise”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just leaving after a fabulous six week stay at Bluebell Cottage. Ideally located in the heart of the Cotswolds, this is the ideal base to explore the areas multitude of picture postcard villages, pubs and country houses. Alternately there are endless country walks starting outside the front door and the local pub and coffee shop are both outstanding with excellent meals at the former. The cottage is well equipped and a cozy getaway with open fire and all that is needed for a short or long stay for up to four people. Cannot recommend it highly enough, we will be back!
