As soon as we walked in we knew this was a place we would be at home in fact that dog wanted to stay for good.
A real fire that helps your mood during those long day nights with comfortable sofa and chairs.
Very limited phone signal but ideal if you want to get away from things.
Just a pity the water heater can't fill what is a luxury bath :)

“Eden Valley idyll”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

Bluebell Cottage proved the perfect base for a walking and photographic holiday in Cumbria and the North Yorkshire Dales.
Ideally situated for easy road access to the Lakes, Dales and Eden Valley, but far enough away to avoid the madding crowd, it is also only five minutes or so from the Settle/Carlisle Railway.
The cottage is ideal for walkers. Not too posh for those days arriving back in wet and muddy clothes, but well fitted out and with all the comforts of home.
We wouldn't hesitate to use it again

“Lovely cottage in great location, good base for all activities”

We (family of 4) stayed in this cottage in the May half term and had a great holiday. It was the first time that we had stayed to the east of Penrith and we were certainly not disappointed! The cottage itself is comfortably furnished and equipped to ensure that it had that 'home from home' feel and there is plenty of room to store bikes and walking boots. The cottage is within easy access of the Lakes themselves and only a 10 minute drive into Penrith where there are supermarkets etc. There is a convenience store in Langwathby (5 mins away) where you can get papers and other items and there is a fantastic pub - The Shepherds Inn, on the green there. If you are into cycling there are some great routes around Ousby, with the hills not too onerous for childrens legs and the other good thing is that there is not that much traffic on the roads in the Eden Valley as opposed to nearer to the Lakes. All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday and wouldn't hesitate to book the cottage again.

“Home from Home with a view”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We have stayed at Bluebell Cottage a number of times and most recently during the week leading upto our wedding in the Lake District. This cottage is truly special. Feels like your own home when you are there. Comfortable, warm, cosy and amazing views of the fells out of the bedroom windows. Within easy reach of the Lakes and with some great days out to be had Bluebell Cottage provides the perfect accommodation for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Will continue to go back year on year and it played a very special part in our wedding adventure.

“Comfortable and spacious”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Property gives an impression of being a bit unfinished (wooden floorboards etc), but everything is there and it all works. Very comfortable stay. Place does not have wifi, but we found that my wife's phone got a signal when placed in the upstairs main bedroom window (using 3-3G), and then the phone could be left there with the hotspot turned on and this enabled wifi internet access downstairs.

Many thanks for your four star rating, positive comments and I'm glad you had a comfortable stay. Just thought I'd say that the floorboards are intentional and varnished.
