Stories from recent stays

My daughter booked a cottage at Old Bridwell on my behalf as she was due to be married on the 28th May 2020, unfortunately due to Covid-19 like many others we had to cancel. Since then we have received endless promises by Steve the General Manager that the deposits would be refunded in full only to find nothing happens. He comes over as a really nice guy just wanting to help but in reality dealing with him is like something you see on Watch Dog. I definitely would NOT RECOMMEND.

We had booked to stay at Old Bridwell for our wedding in May 2020, unfortunately due to Covid-19 everything had to be cancelled. The manager Steve promised a full refund on all 4 of the cottages we had booked, however 3 months later after endless false promises and excuses from him, we still have not received any refund. I would certainly not recommend Old Bridwell.

It was lovely and the pop up coffee shop was most enjoyable, also we had a lovely walk around the grounds

Stunning! Cottages were immaculate and extremely well equipped. Lots of extra touches that made the stay very special. The cream tea and welcome basket of groceries were delicious. We were in one of several cottages hired for a large wedding party and it made a fabulous base from which we could all celebrate this special occasion. Could not recommend highly enough
