It makes best use of the available space and light to ensure a large, bright living area giving direct access onto a decked patio area, cleverly created onto the rock face and a great focal and talking point.

The two double bedrooms and one king size bedroom are arranged over three floors.

Really lovely and excellent central location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is well placed and central for Bowness shops, pubs and restaurants. The beds were very comfortable and the cottage clean and well equipped. The property is over 3 floors and spacious. The car park is tricky especially if you have large cars. We were there midweek when the car park was quiet. If there had been more cars it would have been a struggle.

Booking the cottage and the arrangements for access prior to our stay were spot on. I received prompt replies and detailed instructions that made things simple.

I would definitely recommend this property.

6 of us girls stayed at the cottage and were amazed as to how lovely it was! Very spacious over 3 floors and done to a high quality and great taste! The finishing touches were great like the welcome pack, box of toys, spare cosmetics! There was nothing you could fault! The location is also amazing right in the centre of anything! Can’t wait to visit again.

Lovely cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed. Location is perfect only a short walk away from the shops, pubs and restaurants, and the cottage had all the facilities we needed when we were staying in. Communication was great with Anne-Marie and we would definitely consider booking again in the future

Couldn't have asked for more. Located bang in the middle of Bowness, 2 parking spaces, welcome pack with basic provisions, great facilities in the cottage, and the bed sheets were amazing!

Thanks so much, we had a great few days and I can highly recommend this cottage to anyone thinking about staying in the lakes.

  • 5 of 5

Loved Honeypot Cottage, stayed for a long weekend 13th till 16th October 2017 for our wedding anniversary with friends , Wasent long enough as it was so homely ,warm, and welcoming. It’s better then some 5* hotels we have stayed in . There was a lovely welcome basket which was such a lovely touch,the Cottage was so clean didn’t have to clean before I used anything ( which is a first for me lol )

Honeypot Cottage is in perfect location for all the shops,restaurants and pubs. Anne-Marie was great always gets back to any question that I had promptly ,so thank you for that .

Can’t recomend this Cottage highly enough , absolutely loved it so much so that as soon as we got back home I’ve been looking to book it again .so have our friends .

I would definitely recommend and definitely be returning, thank you for letting us stay at this wonderful little gem

Beautifully presented and homely

  • 4 of 5

Before we even arrived, Anne-Marie made us feel welcome with her emails explaining everything. When we arrived, the cottage was clean and beautifully presented with lots of homely touches. The cottage is in an ideal spot, close to the centre but not too noisy. Had a wonderful time and would highly recommend. Thanks Anne-Marie.
