“Absolutely comfortable, centrally located and modern amenities with a touch of authentic lake district look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Me and my wife along with a friend's family stayed at the Honeypot cottage during the Easter long weekend 2014. The booking procedure was smooth. Payment was made to a bank account online and this may be the only difference when compared to most of the hotel bookings; however, once you convince yourself to accept this, the stay will definitely be a pleasant surprise. The cottage has the authentic lake district construction and has all modern amenities that one may need for a short/long holiday. We were really impressed with the cleanliness at the time of check in. Rooms, gadgets etc match to the description and are well maintained. The cottage location is absolutely a big asset. It is close to the lake, restaurants and supermarkets. It has two car park spaces which is quite unique. The outside deck may look a bit unclean but we weren't keen on that. Watch out for the steep road to get to the car park. Overall, a pleasant stay and a good booking experience through

“Perfect Location”

Four of us recently stayed at Honeypot Cottage, it's a lovely little place in such an ideal location. The place was exceptionally clean when we arrived. The lounge and kitchen is open plan which is great. The bedrooms are all a reasonable size and have very comfy beds. I would definitely recommend staying here, there's a great pub opposite as well. It does state on the website that towels aren't supplied but I missed this so had to buy some, so make sure you take your own.

“Great location, disappointing accommodation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Really convenient for all amenities in Bowness, however, accommodation slightly disappointing. Lower ground floor felt very dark, damp and cold. Lack of good usable mirror in bathroom. Main living area was more comfortable and pleasant. Outside space was not inviting, decking and steps (so many steps!) were quite treacherous and not suitable for young children. Whilst grateful for parking, it was extremely tight and steep to manoeuvre.

“Good spot but not perfect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

The cottage is ideally located in the middle of Bownes on Windermere. The house is nice and complete. There are a couple of negative things. The fridge is way too small for a house like this. The fridge was broken, shelfs were missing in it and there was no freezer.
The outside deck ( terrace) is nice with a lot of privacy but poorly maintained. The table and four chairs were a disgrace. You cannot offer this to people in such a poor condition.

People who have difficulties in climbing stairs should avoid this house. The stairs from the car park to the house are very steep. When it rained everything becomes slippery outside.

It is a nice house if they put in a new fridge and a new table and chairs outside.

“Ideal”

I could not have been more pleased with the whole experience of Honey Pot Cottage. The property itself was immaculate, modern furnishings and very clean. The location is ideal, it is extremely close to the main street in Bowness, a 2 minute walk to the restaurants and bars, however, the cottage was extremely quiet and you were not disturbed by any noise. The price was also very reasonable. I would highly recommend this property and the owners were extremely helpful. Myself, my partner and family had a fabulous stay at the cottage and we all felt we were extremely lucky to have found this property!

“lovely cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We booked through Cumbria Cottages, who very helpful and friendly. On arrival the cottage was very warm and welcoming, there was even a christmas tree lit up for us, all rooms were very clean and had every thing in we required, each room was tastefully decorated with ample and comfortable furniture. It is ideally situated in the heart of bowness. We went in dec. and luckily it was'nt icy as the car park is behind the house up a very steep drive off a very steep hill! there are wooden steps to the front door these got very slippy, so you did need to take extra care, the appreance of the cottage outside and in was charming.

“Fantastic Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012 for a stay in July 2011

Lovely cottage and we are going to book it for 2012. This cottage worked well for 2 couples as there is a bedroom on the third level and 2 further bedrooms on the lower level. The lounge and kitchen was in the middle of the house. unbelievably there is parking with this cottage but it can be tight if you have a large car ilke a landrover etc but not impossible - we did it. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Bedroom linen is lovely. Bathroom is abit out of date but perfectly usable. Booking is not direct and instant like some online companies but I have not had any trouble booking for the stay in 2011 and 2012. infact I was in two minds whether to write this review as I think it is a secret gem!
