Bluebell cottage is located 15 minutes drive from Penrith and is right next to the village green in Ousby. The cottage as everything you need to keep you comfortable whilst you are in residence and was very clean and tidy, The contact with the Landlord was first class and all the questions I asked were answered quickly and politely.I would definitely stay again a greta location and a great pub with great food in the village.

“Perfect location for all age groups”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Bluebell Cottage was perfect for our family. The cottage is well situated - near the motorway, Penrith, the A66 East and West and to easy and more challenging walks around the north lake district, including Aira Force falls.

It is well stocked with cooking equipment and a fabulous rainfall shower. The heating system is quick and highly efficient, with both a log burner and open fire. The addition of stairgates and two travel cots made life so easy too.

The nearby playground is beautifully presented and provided a range of swings, slide, and climbing equipment and my football mad son was ecstatic to find such a soft, well-tended green space too.

Overall, amazing and definitely a hidden treasure. We will be back again, no doubt.

“Beautiful village location.”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Bluebell Cottage ticked all the boxes for us. We had the peaceful location along side being able to get to Penrith centre within fifteen minutes and deep in to the Lakes within sixty to ninety minutes. The Cottage provided everything we could ever want for what we needed.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Bluebell cottage was everything it was described as and more! Such a cute cottage set in a lovely village with Penrith only minutes away and in the perfect position to access to all of the Lake district, pennines and the dales , perfect for sight seeing and dog walking. Paul has been very helpful throughout the whole process and was kind enough to allow us to take our 2 very big puppies who enjoyed themselves emmencly as did we, all the local pubs were very dog friendly and equally human friendly, all in all a very enjoyable holiday Thankyou!

“Dog loved it.”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Great location with a couple pubs within 5 minutes drive or 20 minutes walk, the local village pub was closed down however. 20 minutes drive from Ullswater and Aira Force. Cottage was clean and had everything we needed, there was no wi-fi but had a strong 4g signal all weekend. Would definitely stay and probably will.
