delightful cottage in a handy location.
We enjoyed our short stay in this comfortable property. It is really well located for exploring Sherwood Forest and other attractions. We had a very good meal at Bella Vista and a BBQ by the river, supplied by the host with a wonderful trolley to transport everything. Coffee machine was excellent as was the espresso pot so answered everyone's coffee needs! Could have done with a few cleaning products to keep the kitchen tidy and do odd bits of washing up instead of always using the dishwasher. Expect that it would be a very cosy place to stay in the winter.
Beautiful quirky cottage close to Sherwood Pines.
We chose this cottage for it's close proximity to Sherwood Pines (a post GCSE cycling break for my son... we wanted to hit the trails of the forest for some mountain biking fun). Everything in the property was exactly as listed, clean, homely and with all the kitchen essential we needed, but with a number of pubs/restaurants on the doorstep we did eat out a fair bit. The location of the cottage itself is excellent, in the pretty village of Old Ollerton with the picturesque river running near by. Supermarkets (should you need them) are also within close proximity. All in all the cottage was perfect for our purposes and exceeded all expectations.
N.B. Due to the age & quirky nature of this property the stairs are very steep, a few of the doors are also very low. My son (6ft3) and I (5ft 8) are both tall but soon got used to ducking so didn't find this a problem.
cottage was cosy, ideally situated. Love the church bells. Just 4 door frames upstairs which were short and i kept banging my head, apart from that we had a great stay. will no doubt be booking up again
Lovely bank holiday weekend
Great property and excellent value. Quirky house a quiet village. Friendly pub 2 minute away and lots of things to do within a short car ride.
We stayed at bluebell cottage with some friends and our children.
We encountered a few issues which were dealt with and resolved quickly.
The house is well situated and presented. It comes with little extras such as washing tablets and dish washer tablets. Tea towels etc
Travelling with children we found the house set up a little odd which wasn’t in the description.
The kitchen is upstairs meaning all food shopping needs to be taken upstairs and food preparation is upstairs. There are also 2 sets of stairs. That wrap around a corner that’s quite steep.
The bedrooms were very large and comfortable. The kitchen well stocked with everything you’d need to cook. And the living areas and bathrooms were clean and inviting
There is no garden. It says you can take pets but there would be nowhere loose for them to roam. There is however a small memorial area adjacent with benches and grass that’s perfect for a dog to use.
There are table and chairs so you can sit out the front. But that is on the pavement.
The clock chimes every quarter of the hour. You hardly notice it.
I would recommend to family and friends. But non with small children due to the placement of the kitchen and having to be up and down the stairs so frequent.
We managed by mostly staying upstairs. The master bedroom has ample floor space which we set up as a play area. The children played puzzles and coloured at the kitchen table in the next room. All the rooms had a tv which was useful for putting on music and children’s programmes
There are plenty of amenities near by. Tesco, Asda, McDonald’s and petrol stations all within 10 minutes drive
We visited the local farm - white post farm. Which I would recommend. And Rufford abbey.
Relaxing cottage weekend break
Lovely cottage with plenty of space to relax. Had an amazing girls weekend away 😊
