A Great Base For Adventure Seekers And Their Dog

Honeycomb Cottage, Windermere is as sweet as its name suggests offering affordable and comfortable accommodation for visitors seeking a family and dog-friendly base from where to enjoy all the sights and attractions that this popular part of Lakeland has to offer. Set out over three floors, the cottage is traditionally styled and presented with a very homely feel throughout, somewhere you can instantly kick back, relax and unwind and enjoy quality time together. The lovely new owners have great plans to renovate the cottage in the coming months and we’ll update you on their progress.

This thriving village acts as a great hub from where to plan a host of fantastic adventures and days out. Whether you’re a walker, a cyclist or a swimmer, there’s plenty to do whilst you’re here, be it for a short break or a longer stay. Gentle ambles from the door include the inspiring Orrest Head, School Knott and Brantfell, all offering incredible views for little effort, swimmers can enter the calm waters of Windermere at Millerground whilst cyclists can make their way across the Lake by car ferry to reach Grizedale Forest and sample some exhilarating trails for all abilities.

    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..

  • 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.
