Lovely cottage - perfect location!

Absolutely, I'd be happy to help you with that review! Wow, what an amazing experience we had at this cottage in Windermere! I can't stress enough how fantastic it was. First off, the rental office staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us wonderful local recommendations and even let us store our bags and food in the fridge to keep it cold before check-in. Now, let's talk about the cottage itself - it was an absolute dream! Every corner was like something out of a Pinterest board. The attention to detail was impeccable, and it exceeded all our expectations. As if that wasn't enough, they even surprised us with a complimentary bottle of Prosecco to enjoy during our stay. In summary, our time at this cottage was beyond perfect. If you're looking for a cozy and charming getaway in Windermere, look no further - this place is a gem!

Lovely break
On Saturday, 30 Dec 2023
We have recently returned from a stay at Honeycomb Cottage. It was a lovely property that was beautifully furnished and cosy. It was extremely clean and we very much appreciated the welcome bottle of Prosecco! The wood burner is easy to use and you can easily buy logs etc from the local garage, which is a few minutes walk away. We found the little chippy opposite very good and the Magic Wok Chinese Takeaway does excellent food. We would also like to mention how helpful the Lakeland Retreats staff were ! We will definitely be returning to Honeycomb !!

Lovely old cottage in the heart of Windermere, close to the train station and main bus routes through the lakes. The cottage was just what we were looking for, clean and tidy and a feel of a home from home.
On Saturday, 19 Aug 2023
Right in the centre of Windermere village. Loads of great cafes, restaurants on our doorstep. The beds were clean and comfortable, the rooms bigger than expected and car park close by with permit provided. Easy access not only to the property but also walks, train station and buses.
On Tuesday, 08 Aug 2023
We will definitely return here! A beautiful house, ideally situated for food and sightseeing. A wonderful touch was the parking permit that was included in the welcome pack - it saved us a fortune on parking throughout the week. All kitchen amenities were on hand so that we could cook if we were feeling a little cheap or roll out of our front door and within a few steps we had an abundance of eateries to choose from! House was clean and tidy and we felt right at home.

Me and 2 friends stayed in honeycomb cottage for a long weekend. The cottage was clean and homely and is in the centre of Windermere. We had no issues whilst staying here and the host was very responsive when we asked about the parking permit. Parking gets VERY busy as expected nearby but the permit allowed us to go further afield and explore. We had everything we needed in the house, it was very spacious! The only thing I'd say if I was being picky is that the cottage didn't have a small freezer compartment. The outside space was simple but that's all that was required with such a beautiful area to explore.

Very convenient - short walk from train / bus station / big grocery store. Close to all the restaurants yet in a private street. Spacious and comfortable. About 20m walk to the lake. Great stay!
On Saturday, 17 Jun 2023
Beautiful well equipped cottage in the perfect location. All shops, bars & restaurants on your doorstep. Michelle Is a fantastic host & loved the bottle of bubbles awaiting our arrival. Would definitely recommend.

Fab location. It felt very homely. We had a slight issue when we were there and it was resolved very easily and efficiently. The internal stairs are very steep.

On Tuesday, 09 May 2023
We had the best time at Honeycomb Cottage. It was lovely, spotlessly clean, the beds were comfy and it had everything we needed. The location is perfect -restaurants, coffee shops and food shops are all within walking distance. Parking close by. The adults and our dog had a wonderful time. We will definitely book again.

Nice property for short stay and was adequate for our needs. Lack of visitors permit outside detracted but good value and good location
On Monday, 24 Apr 2023
We had a great time. Perfect location in central Windermere without feeling too busy.
On Friday, 21 Apr 2023
Brilliant cottage in a central location in Windermere. Parking permit for a car park closest was a godsend. We were allowed an early entry to the property, which enabled us to arrive early, get unpacked and start our holiday so much sooner. The property was excellent, we loved the log burning stove. The bottle of prosecco was a lovely gesture. We will certainly return.

We spent Christmas in the cottage and really enjoyed our stay. We particularly liked the stove. It's in a really central location with great walks nearby.

The house was wonderful, warm and cosy - perfect for our adventures in the hills on those wet days. Clean rooms and washing machine and dishwasher working.

Our family had such a lovely stay in Honeycomb. It is located right in the centre of Windermere. There are some great shops to explore, delicious restaurants and bakeries and a nice little park about a 3 minute walk away for the kids and dog to run. Booths is located right up the hill for groceries which was very helpful to us. This was our first time in the Lake District and we were stunned by the beauty and had such a lovely walk on the Coffin route (very kid friendly).

Great location, cosy cottage and perfect base camp for a quick trip away to the lakes with family and a dog. Parking passes also helped a lot and made life very easy. Sky TV and Chippy opposite were also great perks!
On Friday, 09 Sep 2022
Perfect location. Parking was a little difficult but didn’t impact our stay. Like others our dog wouldn’t wee in the yard so had to walk her but other than that had a lovely stay.
On Wednesday, 31 Aug 2022
Lovely stay in the middle of Windermere. Good size house for 5 of us with all the expected facilities.
On Friday, 12 Aug 2022
This a a lovely cottage in the centre of Windermere, it is spotlessly clean and well equipped, ideal for a family of 4 or 5 people. Located on a quiet street. There are lots of shops, lovely cafes and bars nearby. We would highly recommend it. There can be an issue with parking due to the very limited parking on nearby streets. Car parks are quite a distance away.
On Wednesday, 03 Aug 2022
Lovely wee cottage in the heart of Windermere. Great location for exploring surrounding areas. Ideal place to stay for families & couples. We took our 2yr old dog & he loved it.
On Sunday, 31 Jul 2022
If you are thinking of going to Windermere and get to stay in this lovely cottage you should it’s in a perfect location and it’s lovely
On Sunday, 31 Jul 2022
We had a great time at this lovely cottage, it’s in a perfect location just off the main road with lots of great restaurants & shops but far enough away that it was quiet at night. The kitchen had every utensil & pot we needed, however there is no freezer compartment. The courtyard was a little disappointing as it is a small alleyway leading onto the main road. Our 16 yr old dog is fussy & wouldn’t pee down there so we ended up taking her for a walk down the street in the night. If your dog isn’t fussy then it will be fine.
On Saturday, 02 Jul 2022
The cottage was so lovely. We enjoyed ourselves so much. The location is easy to walk to the city center and there is a large field nearby to take your dogs if needed. The cottage had great spaces for all of us. The beds were so comfortable and they had everything you need! The kitchen was well stocked as well. We loved it here! Thank you for thinking of everything.
On Friday, 10 Jun 2022
Fantastic property, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. It’s in a great location and we were able to get parked outside most days. The owner also provides parking permits for other car parks in the area which was really useful. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again!
On Tuesday, 07 Jun 2022
Straight forward check in. Property was clean and cozy. Parking permit provided on arrival. Great communication prior to stay. Would stay again!

The most perfect cottage! We had the best stay, the location was amazing - right in the centre of the town, with lots of places to eat and drink close by. Prosseco on arrival was such a lovely gesture too - thank you ??

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful week in Honeycomb cottage. The cottage is spaciously set over three floors and is well equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable break. The property is clean and warm with comfortable beds. The location is great with ai Little Chippy across the road and art galleries and plenty of shops just a short walk away. Highly recommended- we would stay again!

Honeycomb Cottage was as described. It’s a lovely spacious cottage with everything you need. It’s in an amazing location right in the center of Windermere. Everything was on our doorstep.
On Tuesday, 15 Mar 2022
Lovely stay, the only downfall was trying to get parked up. There were no spaces available when we arrived and we had to carry all of our bags from the car park and street. Did spoil it a little on arrival. No wood, or welcome pack, although we did have a bottle of Prosecco which was a nice touch.
On Saturday, 12 Mar 2022
We had a lovely week at the cottage, location perfect for town and accessing the rest of the Lakes. Well equipped kitchen and cozy lounge.

Absolutely fantastic place, location could not of been better. Cannot fault anything host was great too.
On Tuesday, 22 Feb 2022
What a wonderful stay! It was just perfect. The house is gorgeous and just what we needed as a cosy base to get out and explore. Everything was super clean and tidy, and a treat to have a woodburner like home from home. Really close to pop out to the pubs and shops, but lovely and quiet at night. We loved the bright and spacious kitchen and dining room, and our beds were really comfy - perfect for flopping into after a walk and a swim! Can't wait to come back!
On Friday, 11 Feb 2022
Great location, well finished cottage. You won’t be disappointed. We will stay again.

A fantastic cottage in the centre of Windermere. The pictures don’t do it justice, the cottage has such a lovely feel to it. Plenty of space and cosy at the same time, especially with the log burner going! Really enjoyed our stay and we’ll be back. Highly recommend!

Lovely cottage in a great location in central Windermere. It was comfortable and clean with great heating and shower (important to us on a walking weekend in January!). I would definitely recommend it and hope to stay again the next time I'm over in the Lake District.

This house is in the most fantastic central location near loads of shops, cafes and walks. Best places are Home Ground for the best ever food, coffee & amazing cakes, The Pig for drinking & pizza & wild Boar inn (a short drive away). The little Chippy opposite is also very very good! There are plenty of lovely independant shops plus Booths & Sainsburys. The house was super clean, warm, cosy and really comfortable. Loads of room and so well equipped to live like you are at home, we love to cook and there was all the equipment needed. Very comfy mattress, super clean towels & bedding. There is even Sky tv! In the downstairs room there is a super efficient dehumidifier so no damp smell which basement rooms can sometimes have, but not here & a radiator, this is a lovely cosy additional bedroom with an extra tv! All in all a fantastic house, great location and somewhere we will stay time & time again. Thanks to the owner.

Great place to stay! The location is fantastic, the cottage is well appointed, cosy and great value. We would definitely come back!
