  • “The cottage looks cute and lovely.”

    The aga looks like a lovely touch. However, on closer inspection the place is in desperate need of a clean. I don’t know when someone last cleaned behind the bed heads or under the sofa but it was thick with dirt and dust. My baby at one point was about to put a finger nail clipping in his mouth that wasn’t ours. The heating is far far to hot. The thermometer on our baby monitor was saying that the bedroom was 25 degrees as one point so we had to have windows open and the heating on. There ...

    The aga looks like a lovely touch. However, on closer inspection the place is in desperate need of a clean. I don’t know when someone last cleaned behind the bed heads or under the sofa but it was thick with dirt and dust. My baby at one point was about to put a finger nail clipping in his mouth that wasn’t ours. The heating is far far to hot. The thermometer on our baby monitor was saying that the bedroom was 25 degrees as one point so we had to have windows open and the heating on. There was shards of glass in the dishwasher that wasn’t from us using it. In all the place needs cleaning, deeply.

The property

Honeypot Cottage, formerly the village Sunday school building, is an attractive stone-built cottage located on a hillside overlooking the charming village of Brigsteer in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria.

With lovely views from the elevated garden of the Lyth Valley, this cottage is perfect for a romantic escape or family holiday.

Upstairs in the cottage are two elegantly furnished bedrooms, one king-size bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a twin bedroom.

On the ground floor this property has a wet room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Also on the ground floor is a cosy sitting room with a woodburning stove, a perfect country kitchen with AGA Range cooker and dining table.

Outside there are plenty of places to enjoy the garden with steps leading up to a lawned area and patio.

Just a short walk down the hill, (longer on the way back up!) takes you to the village centre where there is a super local pub serving excellent food and ales.

The “auld grey town of Kendal” is just 5 miles away and the tip of Lake Windermere is approx. 13 miles where you can visit the Aquarium of the Lakes or hop on board the Windermere Steamer and cruise up the lake to Bowness or Ambleside.

The great attraction of this lovely cottage is the excellent walking in the Southern Lakes, fantastic local pubs and lots of interesting villages such as Cartmel to visit.

An outstanding cottage, perfect at any time of the year.
