Customer Reviews of Ferniehaugh Cottages - Bellevue Cottage
1st comment: Enjoyed peace and quiet. Cottage well equipped. Information on all equipment in cottage very good. Left with batteries recharged ready to face working again. April 2012.
2nd comment: We loved our stay at Bellevue Cottage, even though it rained most of the week. We wanted a quiet get away from it all break and that is what we got. The cottage is well equipped with a lovely double oven, a big basket of wood for the stove too, although we didnt need it as the cottage was cosy and warm. Thoughtfully furnished with a lovely Ercol rocking chair and a tub chair for those who prefer a firmer seat. The owners were on site, friendly and helpful but not obtrusive. Would we go back? In a heartbeat. May 2012.
3rd comment: What a wonderful cottage! Perfect location with plenty of lovely walks out from the cottage. Lovely big enclosed garden and well equipped cottage with lots of small thoughtful details. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, giving lots of information on the local area and they let our children meet the new born lambs on their farm, which our 2 year old loved! Thank you for a wonderful holiday - we will certainly be coming back very soon. March 2012.
