“Perfect accomodation”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Couldn't have wished for more. Patio is ace - small but amazing how much sun it catches for much of the day. Beautifully done out, and well equipped. Turn right out of the gate and you are immediately in Bowness town, and 5 minutes walk from the lake. Turn left out of the gate and the lane goes straight up the hill to Brantfell from which there are amazing views of the lake, North and South. Stayed for the Bowness Blues Festival, which we really enjoyed. Had really warm weather. We had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks

Just back from 3 day stay at Honeypot Cottage for my sisters birthday with family & we all had a great time. The property is of a very high standard with everything supplied including towels & nice wee touches like a welcome pack made our stay extra special. We will definitely book this cottage again when visiting the lakes.

“A luxurious cottage in the heart of The Lakes.”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have just returned from a weekend at this stunning Lakeland cottage. Ideally positioned just a few minutes walk from all the local pubs and restaurants and from Lake Windermere itself. The cottage itself offers everything that you could need for a great holiday. We will definitely be back!

“AMAZING LOCATION EVEN MORE AMAZING PLACE”

Just got back from a weekend at honeypot cottage 13/01/17 and I cant speak highly enough of how good the cottage and facilities were.
The location is as central to Bowness as you are going to get, whilst still retaining its country cottage feel. From the moment we walked in you could tell the cottage was high class with the new décor and fully kitted out kitchen/ dining area. The main living area is on the 1st floor with two bedrooms being downstairs and one on the 2nd floor . All the bedrooms had a high end hotel room feel to them and the beds were probably the most comfy beds I've ever slept in .
We went as a group of 6 adults and there was more than enough room for us all. On arrival we were given a welcome pack full of goodies and there wasn't anything the owner hadn't thought of to make our stay run smoothly. Instructions for appliances (wifi) were clearly labelled and were great. The booking system was very easy and the owner/letting agent was very helpful and friendly who kept us updated on everything by phone and email.
All in all this cottage exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be booking this little gem again very soon!

“Great location”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

We vIsited with my daughter and partner and for couple of days my granddaughter and boyfriend. The cottage was adequate for us all. Although one bathroom was a bit busy. The layout of the cottage is spacious but the steps from the car park are very steep and you have to be very careful if the weather is wet. We used the front door most of the time and you still had to be careful with the steps up to street level. A few minutes and you are in the midst of Bowness and all its amenities. We recommend the Albert for food. Excellent. My husband and I made use of our bus passes and visited Grasmere, Ambleside and Keswick which meant we didn't have to use car and my husband could enjoy the scenery. I would recommend this cottage for its location and spaciousness if there are a few people staying .

“Perfect Lake District cottage with Parking”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

people found this review helpful

We stayed at honeypot cottage for a long weekend in March our family of 6. 2 adults and 2 children (2 and 6) and my sister and brother in law. The location of the cottage is just fantastic only a two minute walk to the lake, shops and restaurants.

The property is spacious and spread over three floors with two double bedrooms and a bathroom to the ground floor.

The first floor had all of the living facilities including kitchen stocked with all the cutlery, crockery, pans etc you would need for a self catering holiday and an open plan living area that lead out onto a pleasant decking area.

The second floor has another double bedroom and bathroom facilities.

Don't forget your towels as these aren't provided but all bedding is.

For two families this was perfect as we were in the most central location in the Lake District and had our own space.

The steps leading down to the property from the car park are steep, but I just got my husband to collect the keys and he dropped us off at the front entrance and we entered through the front door with the children.

There was a park which kept our 2 and 6 year old entertained just behind the car park which was a lovely find.

If your looking for the perfect Lake District cottage with parking this is most certainly the place to stay we had a great time.

I have just arrived back from a lovely weekend in honeypot cottage. Once I had parked the car in the space provided which was right next to the gate, great for taking your things in. The car never moved until we were leaving as this cottage is set in an excellent location. Walking distance to amazing restaurants and bars. The cottage was also well equipped, they had everything you need & more. Very clean, the beds were also comfortable. Only thing to remember when booking is take your towels. I am definitely going to recommend this cottage.
