A fantastic family friendly place
We had a great stay in Bluebell. Great place for kids to explore and loads to do within the grounds or within a 15 min drive. Cottage was spotless on arrival and Aidan was spot on and made sure we had everything we needed.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect place to stay when visiting North Devon
Me, my mum and my dog Maude are now on our way home from our lovely stay at Bluebell cottage at Northcote Manor Farm. Despite some rainy weather, Bluebell cottage was a perfect base for both exploring North Devon with easy reach of the coast and Exmoor National Park, and for relaxing when the weather turned. The cottage was cozy, comfortable and warm - a home from home. The outdoor pool was an added benefit as it could still be enjoyed even in poor weather. We would love to stay again in future, maybe with more family staying in the other cottages on site as it seems very family friendly. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Intro to north devon
What an absolute dream of a location and cosy cottage stay for our first time in north devon. The added bonuses of a heated indoor pool and a fully equipped games room made this the ideal place to hunker down when the weather turned. Aiden and Lizzie were excellent hosts and only too happy to sort out any issues that arose. Northcote manor gave us the best base to then go and explore the stunning north devon landscape. Cant wait to come back next year!

Summer break
A lovely cottage, tucked away in a beautiful part of the country. Bluebell cottage was so peaceful and ideal for dogs. The pool was a lovely bonus, with lovely walks from the property. The owner and family were helpful and friendly, and on hand should you need anything.

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful week in an idyllic location
We stayed in Bluebell Cottage with our 3 year old granddaughter and two dogs. The cottage was lovely; comfortable, cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. Aidan was really helpful and very friendly. The garden and extensive land were ideal for dog walks and jumping in muddy puddles. The play areas and trampoline were a big hit and the swimming pool was fantastic. We had a fantastic holiday, and would fully recommend this property to anyone wanting a laid back, relaxing holiday in a stunning location.
