Response from Bluebell Retreat Glamping

Thanks Janice & Martin. Really pleased you were snug & warm in the pods too! I was a little concerned as it was super frosty 🥶 outside. We will definitely look forward to seeing you and your family in warmer climates next year x

Restful retreat

I had a delightful stay here, the pods and communal areas were clean and modern. Ian and Deb were incredibly helpful and welcoming. This is a beautiful and restful location, I enjoyed spending time among the trees and enjoyed walking around the pond. There were lots of little touches, the mini fridge in the room is silent, the bbq next to the pod with a box of everything you need to use for the BBQ. A firepit adds a certain something especially at night, if you forgot to buy charcoal for your BBQ you can buy some from the owners. I would recommend this to my friends, and hope to stay again.
