Excellent property exactly what we needed to have a great family holiday. Owners were great and very friendly. First family holiday we have had and feel relaxed even after returning to our daily routines.

Mrs Janet R,

Lovely country setting. Excellent welcome. Home well equipped.

Mike G,

This is an amazing property, and Peter was most welcoming & friendly. The gift of fresh egss, still warm from the hens was a lovely added bonus

Mrs L P,

The property was as advertised, our Grandchildren were lucky enough to feed some new born lambs, we had fresh eggs from the chickens and the owners baked us a lovely cake, all in all it was a wonderful few days away.

Mr John R,

Excellent property and a very warm welcome from the owners. Lovely for Xmas as the house was decorated with a very magical Xmas tree and lots of decorations around the house! Excellent experience

Mrs Christine M,

Lovely place to stay with family &/or friends for a relaxing long weekend. Cottage is the perfect mix of traditional comfort with modern amenities & great for local walks. Owner very friendly & welcoming . Impressed by regular emails from Blueriver Cottages throughout the deposit & balance payment stages. Once balance paid received immediate contact details of the property, the owners & directions. Also received my housekeeping/breakage deposit within a week of my stay which was a bonus

Mrs Sarah J,

We had a fantastic stay and would love to go back! It was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Miss Lucy M,

Property was very good for our party of 12 adults, a baby and a dog. A great time was had by all and the recently installed hot tub got some use.

Mr Paul F,

The owners were very helpful and friendly. Children fascinated by all the animals especially the hens and ducks.

Mrs Joan M,

The owners of the property are incredibly helpful and friendly. They accommodated our needs as we have a large wheelchair and it was very easy to get around the interior and exterior of the cottage. We enjoyed watching the animals on the farm.

Joanne L,

Very friendly and welcoming couple. Helped us feel at home from the start. Our young granddaughter loved it. Would make for a really relaxing break for anyone staying in the future.

Previous Customer,

it was just perfect for us. Not too fancy so you felt very at home coming back from wet walks and being able to leave muddy boots in the hallway. The kitchen was great and the cooker was very good.
