Good location.

Good location to explore surrounding area and Lake District. Plenty of space for family of six. Bonus with play ground at the top of the road. Thank you , Mary for your warm welcome and information throughout our booking and staying. (Coach House)

Amazing place, beautiful views.

Amazing place with beautiful views. Felt right at home, had everything we needed. The welcome tea and coffee and treats were just what we needed after a long journey. Great location, great recommendations by our host. Would definitely recommend. (Olde Blue Bell Barn)

Beautiful place

Absolutely loved our stay. Brilliant house in a beautiful place. Mary was an excellent host, providing welcome snacks and drinks and being responsive to questions throughout. And the icing on the cake- underfloor heating downstairs! If we return to this neck of the woods, we’ll definitely look here first. (Coach House)

Loved our stay

We loved our stay at The Blue Bell Barn! Mary's place was so clean and just as described. The light that came in through the windows in the morning was beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking! Heversham is a nice small town and is away from the hustle and bustle and we liked that. The cottage felt like home. We highly recommend Mary’s place and would stay there again.

We have been coming here every year for the last 15 years, need I say more! Beautiful, clean cottages, great location and a lovely host. Can't wait for next time.

Lovely location and house.

Mary was a super host, communicative and helpful and we had a fantastic family stay in her cottage over New Year. Lovely location and house.  (Olde Blue Bell Cottage)

Perfect Break

Stayed for a week in Olde Blue Bell Barn and fully enjoyed every minute. Absolutely loved the immaculate accommodation and surrounding scenery & area. So very peaceful and private but in a great location both for local walks and to further explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Moors areas. We took our Cockapoo along with us and she was made as welcome as we were. It was a pleasure to meet Mary who supplied interesting advice and information to help enhance our holiday experience. We would definitely recommend this fantastic accommodation for anyone looking for a relaxing and energising holiday.

A wonderful place

This place is wonderful. Location is great both for the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Mary is very friendly accommodating and responsive to all questions and needs. The house itself is very well maintained and the kitchen is something all hosts should learn from. I will not hesitate to return when I am next in the area. Highly recommended. (Coach House)

The Coach House

We stayed at the Coach House at the end of March and had a truly enjoyable stay in beautiful surroundings. Mary was so welcoming and a font of knowledge. The accommodation was all we could ask for, a real home from home, everything that was necessary for a perfect holiday. Would love to have stayed for a second week! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Thank you for your lovely review. I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Coach House, and exploring this beautiful area. We hope we will see you again sometime. Mary

I have just spent a week at Olde Bluebell Barn. It’s a lovely place and the pictures do not do it justice. I could quite easily live there. It is ideally located and is such a lovely place. Mary is very warm, friendly and helpful. I just cannot fault the accommodation and hope to return there very soon. Best place I have stayed in so far with the dog. Also the double bed is very comfortable. I was sad to leave.

Home from Home

This year was our fourth year back at Blue Bell Cottage, we had a wonderful holiday the cottage is conveniently located for easy access to the rest of the lakes. There are plenty of lovely walks close by if you don’t want to travel to far such as Sandside, Arnside, Levens Park and Dallam Park. There’s plenty of local pubs serving excellent food within a 10 minute drive the Hare and Hounds at Leven and the Watermill at Ings are both worth a visit. Mary is a gem nothing is to much trouble for her and she’s the font of all knowledge about the Lake District. We’ve already booked to come back next year and can’t wait our family and dogs love it!

Fantastic Cottage

Fantastic location just 8 minutes from M6 motorway with easy access to travel around the Lake District yet located in a lovely quiet village. Many lively walks within easy reach, great if like us you have a dog. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a very comfortable stay including a lovely enclosed garden area with table and access to a BBQ, again great if you have a dog or small children. The cottage is very cosy with heating if needed, a new modern bathroom and well equipped kitchen. This is our fifth year staying in the cottage and the owner, Mary is absolutely lovely, nothing is any bother, she has become more of a friend over the years. Cannot recommend the cottage highly enough and great value too. Plenty of really good restaurants and pubs nearby and short joirney time to May places of interest such as Arnside, Kendal, Keswick and Lake Windemere. We’ll certainly be back again!

My husband and I have just spent three days/nights here and it was wonderful. The pictures of the cottage are fab but even they can’t do justice to how welcome and at home you feel when you walk through the door. The location is also fantastic because you feel remote, yet in just one mile you have a super restaurant, shops, pubs, butchers etc., and great local walks too (all thanks to Mary’s information folder!). We really felt spoilt for choice. A fantastic break that I wish had been longer!

The Coach House was perfect for our friend’s reunion weekend. Spacious but very warm and cosy so didn’t care about the weather outside!! Would definitely recommend to others

Olde Blue Bell Cottage, Annette Dunning, January 2014
Well we just love it here. Stayed about 4 or 5 times now and in all weathers!! Hot, Snowy, rainy and perfect every time. Everything you could wish for, lovely walks, pubs, hiking , Shops close by, and most of all such a cosy well maintained cottage with a lovely hostess Mary to top it all, look forward to our next trip x x

Olde Blue Bell Barn,Diane & John, February 2013
Our grandson was immediately taken with the “upside down” cottage we loved the fantastic views. The cottage was warm, clean and well equipped and owners were very helpful and supplied plenty of local info within the cottage. We found it to be the perfect base for exploring, just so much to do every day. Our grandson Jack (4yrs) told us “It’s the best holiday ever” what more could you ask!

Olde Blue Bell Cottage, Karen & Steve, August 2013
Just got back from a great week at the cottage, it’s in a good location with easy access to the rest of the Lakes, we visited Bowness on Windermere, Keswick, Kendal, Dallam and Levens Parks, Fell Foot and Arnside coastal walk, our dogs thoroughly enjoyed their holiday. Lovely walk 2 minutes away up to Heversham Head. Mary was really helpful so much information we were spoilt for choice where to visit first. Local pub 2 minutes’ walk away is great for an evening drink and wind down.

Olde Blue Bell Barn, Sharon, July 2013
4 of us stayed in The Barn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location-wise, the local pub is only a five-minute walk away; the village centre only a five-minute drive. We took our Staffie with us and there were plenty of walks for us to enjoy. Accommodation-wise, the scenery from the lounge window was breath-taking. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. The welcome pack listed all local amenities including restaurants to takeaways and local attractions. Overall we were all very impressed 🙂

The Coach House, Stuart Pratt, February 2013
We stayed in the wonderful cottage for four nights, and can honestly say that the amenities and quality of accommodation was 5 star, everything you need for your stay is provided along with tea, coffee and other provisions provided by the owner Mary when you arrive. Location and surrounding area is perfect for Windermere and Arnside. Our children loved the cottage and will most definitely not be using any other accommodation as I believe this cannot be bettered.

Olde Blue Bell Barn, Nick Blunt, September 2012
We returned to the cottage after having stayed 10 years previous! The cottage has a fantastic view and is well equipped with all the home comforts, pets are very welcome and it is a great base for exploring the south lakes .the owners are nearby if you need any advice or information on days out. We will definitely be returning in the future.

The Coach House, Tony & Gina, September 2012
We have just spent a week at The Coach House celebrating my wife’s parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed our stay as the accommodation and location were excellent. The house is a credit to Mary and really does feel like a home from home. As for the location, this was our 1st visit to The Lakes and The Coach House gave us excellent access to all the beauty spots including Ambleside, Bowness etc. Kendal is also a stone’s throw away for all your shopping needs. We hope to return.
