    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 !!

  • Danielle says:

    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).

  • paul edwards says:

    Fantastic location & a beautiful well kept cottage in the heart of Windermere.
    They allowed us to take our two small well behaved dogs.
    Sleeps 5 & the bedrooms are fantastic.
    Near to many great bars & restaurants & only a 15-20min walk down to Bowness by the lake.
    Very near to the train & bus station & many great walks on your doorstep.
    Free parking & a nice bottle of prosecco on arrival. All condiments supplied & everything you need for your stay in the cottage is supplied.
    Great value & would definitely recommend.

  • Mike says:

    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!

  • Ross says:

    Lovely stay in the middle of Windermere. Good size house for 5 of us with all the expected facilities.

  • Susanne says:

    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.

  • Michael says:

    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

  • Kaley says:

    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.

  • Lauren says:

    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.

  • Kirsty says:

    Straight forward check in. Property was clean and cozy. Parking permit provided on arrival. Great communication prior to stay. Would stay again!

  • Gemma says:

    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 ♥️

  • Lisa says:

    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!

  • Danielle says:

    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.

  • Kerry says:

    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.

  • Wendy says:

    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.

  • Jonathan says:

    Absolutely fantastic place, location could not of been better. Cannot fault anything host was great too.

  • Natalie says:

    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!

  • Martin says:

    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!

  • Stuart says:

    We had a very pleasant stay at the cottage. Excellent location – just 5 min walk from Windermere station. Quaint in feel, but stocked with all the modern amenities. Will definitely come back..

  • Ceri says:

    Really great, central place to stay. Much more spacious than you might expect.

  • Tim says:

    Had a great stay here, a few minor issues were dealt with swiftly by Lakeland Retreats meant that we able to enjoy our holiday. The cottage was well presented with everything we needed for our holiday, also in a great location right in the middle of town. Would definitely book again.

  • Joanne says:

    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.

  • Laura says:
