    • “Cosy central”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We started looking at houses in the countryside but thank heavens we decided on this one which is the middle of Bowness - everything within walking distance and a great location to visit other places either by ferry or by car. Honeysuckle Cottage is well equipped and nicely decorated giving a very homely feel, especially when the log burning stove was alight. We went in autumn so the garden didn’t get used but it would have been lovely on a summers evening. Might be a bit of a squash for six but for four it was lovely.”

    • “We had a really lovely time in a beautiful part of the country. The cottage was very welcoming and cosy. The lights were even on when we arrived and it was toasty warm too. A real home from home.”

    Mrs Lunn, Colchester, October 2018

    • “The cottage was lovely, felt homely rather than just a holiday let. The location was perfect and we would definitely book again.”

    Mrs Dodd, Ashford, October 2018

    • “We found the town of Bowness to be charming. Honeysuckle Cottage was beautifully appointed and comfortable. It exceeded our expectations for charm and convenience. Edward & Anne Miller. Columbus, Ohio, USA.”

    Mr Goddard, September 2018

    • “Excellent cottage. However, it was extremely difficult to find out the cottage in the evening. Mentioned postcode took us to a different place and direction was not clear. We could identify the the cottage after 2.5 hrs and was about to shift to a hotel. The cottage itself was very nice.”

    Mr Roychowdhury, Reading, May 2018
