    “A great location to be able to enjoy the surrounding area.”

    We are really familiar with this area as we have stayed in many of the cottages available through Sykes in Chagford. We realise that this cottage is new on sykes but sadly we do have feedback as it didnt meet the same standard of others. Advise includes -Welcome pack (even if its just milk) -Toilet roll in the bathroom -More than 1 towel each -Check lights are working (bedroom) -Bin bags provided for checkout -Washing up liquid (we left for next guests) -Garden needs tending -Dog hairs ...

    We are really familiar with this area as we have stayed in many of the cottages available through Sykes in Chagford.

Advise includes -Welcome pack (even if its just milk) -Toilet roll in the bathroom -More than 1 towel each -Check lights are working (bedroom) -Bin bags provided for checkout -Washing up liquid (we left for next guests) -Garden needs tending -Dog hairs in the bed and around the property (we don't own a dog) -The information pack lists everything not to do whilst staying which is important but doesn't make you feel welcome. This cottage has so much potential and the final suggestion would be to create a welcome booklet which includes information on end of stay directions for bedding and rubbish. Perhaps seeking advice from another local cottage owner may help develop the aspects highlighted above. We hope that this is of use moving forward.

The property

Bluebell Cottage is a wonderful Grade II, thatched, terrace cottage resting in the pretty little village of Chagford, Devon.

Inside you will find a restful and convenient interior with a touch of nostalgia.The traditional décor makes it feel less like a holiday let and more like a personal abode.The rustic living room with sleek leather sofa and chair will comfort you as you take the weight off your feet.You can get warm in front of the woodburning stove whilst relaxing and catching up on some TV.

For those tasty evening meals, the kitchen has everything you need to cook up a feast for you and your loved ones, before sitting down in the lovely decorated dining room.

Why not dine alfresco-style in the warmer months and take in those rays of sunshine on the sun lounger, with a nice glass of wine?

When the sun starts to set, take a relaxing soak in the traditional roll-top bath.

Escape to one of the two comfortable bedrooms to unwind.

Once you're all settled in, Dartmoor has so many picturesque spots worth a visit.You can take a gentle stroll along the river to Fingle Bridge, where you can take in the view of Castle Drogo.Other places worth a visit are; Whiddon Wood, King Tor, Bellever Forest and Sittaford Stone Circle, all with something to offer.When you fancy eating out head to one of the various pubs; The Three Crowns, The Chagford Inn, The Ring o' Bells and The Globe.
