“Good spot but not perfect”

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!

“lovely cottage”
Reviewed 27 January 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”
Reviewed 24 January 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!

“fab stay”
Reviewed 9 January 2012 for a stay in September 2011

booked this through internet site, nobody to meet us, but didnt matter as clear instructions left, this is a wonderful cottage right in the heart of bowness, had its own carpark space, which is great as there is nowhere to car in the lakes, bedrooms are lovely and clean , kitchen is modern , the living area is on the second floor so it is a the centre of the house, my kids loved it and want to go back again, as we could walk out every night to lots of different restaurants and pubs, would recommend this cottage to everyone, would be not good for disabled as quite a few steps
