3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Milnthorpe, Cumbria, England
Converted from an 18th century coaching inn, Olde Blue Bell Cottage is cosy, comfortable and full of character. It is located in the quiet village of Heversham. For a relaxing drink, there is a traditional pub just 5 minutes walk from the cottage, or to work up a thirst you can walk from the door up Heversham fell, and experience stunning views of the Lakeland hills and coastline.

The Cottage has 3 bedrooms, a double and 2 twin rooms. The bathroom is newly refurbished with a large bath and powerful shower, finished in natural ceramic tiles with contemporary chrome tap fittings.

Interaction with guests
On your day of arrival you can check in any time after 2.30pm. A code will be sent to you in the week prior to your arrival to enable you to access the key from a secure box located by the front door to the cottage. We leave a welcome tray with as much tea and coffee as you can drink to refresh you from your journey and will pop round after your arrival to check you have settled in and provide some local tips. There is a folder full of information about the cottage and local amenities, restaurants, places to visit, maps to guide you around Cumbria, and a box of leaflets about visitor attractions, boat and train rides, outdoor activities, and much more. We also live in the village so are on hand for any queries or help required.

Lovely week spent at the cottage. Great location for exploring the Lakes. Easy drive to Kendal, Windermere and Ambleside. Very quiet village with larger Milnthorpe just a couple of minutes in the car for plenty of shops and pubs. Great spacious cottage for just two of us, very clean, comfortable and homely.... plenty of relaxation! Came with all the housekeeping...
