“Absolutely comfortable, centrally located and modern amenities with a touch of authentic lake district look”
Reviewed 22 April 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.

“Good spot but not perfect”
Reviewed 27 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

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.

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!
