Stayed 10 May 2015 with Couple
Lovely spacious property with stunning views. Parking arrangements for properties poor as next doors vehicle is parked outside main bedroom window which meant we couldn't have the curtains open when we were in the bedroom. Also disappointed with the crockery, very badly chipped not what you expect in a 4 star. We enjoyed our stay very much but small things make all the difference.

One of the best holidays weve ever had! The accommodation was excellent, the area beautiful and the local people very, very friendly. Even the weather was perfect! Weve already booked to return next year.

Beautiful cottage, in lovely wooded setting, very peaceful and relaxing. Cottage is modern, spacious and tastefully equipped to a high standard. We arrived with our two madcap springers who adored the woods. I would highly recommend for a break or a relaxing holiday, it would be perfect in the summer, especially for al fresco dining. Great for large families or groups of friends, who could rent the apartments. One recommendation for dog owners, I took a lot of big bath towels to protect the light coloured carpet in the hall, (unfortunately we had rain and with our mud magnet springers, this could have made a lethal combination). (May be worth providing plastic sheeting). Rothbury and the surrounding is lovely, several pubs in the village, but would recommend the Queens head for a dinner. Cragside also worth a visit, with miles of beautiful grounds, only downside is dogs have to be kept on leads, even in the extensive forest.

Bluebell Cottage was everything the advertisement said and more. Its location is idyllic for a quiet, get away from it all, holiday. The accommodation is well maintained and has everything you could ask for in a holiday let. We came away feeling relaxed with our batteries fully recharged and our dogs loved it too! We would highly recommend this property to family and friends and look forward to returning to it again in the future.
A hugely spacious, comfortable and well equipped apartment. Everything you would need for a stay away from home is provided. Each apartment has its own parking in the spacious grounds, right outside the apartment. The location is rural but less than 5 minutes drive from Rothbury. The owners live in the building and are around in case you need them. Overall a fantastic place to stay to explore the area.
