  • "This is our second time to stay at this lovely property."

    We will definitely be booking again next year. Just perfect everything on your doorstep yet very quiet with beautiful views from every window. We just parked our other cars across the road no problem at all. Sue and John

    So pleased you enjoyed your second holiday at Honeywood House. We agree the location is perfect for the village and enjoying the beautiful landscape Grasmere has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you again next year. Property Owner

  • "Let down by parking issue."

    If more than one car forget it. Mad neighbours don't help. Ruined our weekend!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issue that you found with the parking. The web site listings for the property state that there is private parking for 1 car at the property (further on street parking is available 40m away). We have not had any previous complaints about the neighbors and as we were not informed of any issues during your stay we are unfortunately unable to fully investigate.

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    We had a lovely stay. Laura at Sykes cottages was so helpful and able to get our trip organised with short notice. The cottage was very well placed for Grasmere and the surrounding areas. Really well equipped and decorated to a high specification and it was a delight to stay there. A real home from home. And the wood burner ……. Just what we were after. Thanks again.

    So happy we could organise your stay at short notice and you enjoyed your holiday at Honeywood House. It's nice to know that it feels like a real home from home. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

    You enter a cloakroom/boot room then into a lovely dining area and kitchen then into a lovely lounge. Everything was well thought out including the downstairs toilet. The cosy fire was perfect on a cold day. The bedrooms were lovely plenty of storage and fantastic views from every room in the house. It is in a very quiet spot with a lovely garden. We had everything we needed. Very close to all the amenities. We will definitely be back

  • "An excellent property, but severely let down by the quality of the beds/mattresses/pillows."

    Cheap mattresses that offer no support. A bed frame which creaks every time someone moves. Pillows with no filling and which fall into the gap between the mattress and the bed-frame. Agh!!! But apart from that every thing else was excellent.

    Thank you very much for your comments Mr Giles and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. We are sorry to hear about the issues you encountered at the house, unfortunately we weren't aware of any of the issues you had as we could have resolved them to make your stay more comfortable. We haven't had any reports from previous guests regarding the standard of pillows, mattresses etc. These are all personal choice, however the owner has taken your points onboard and has ordered a new bed, mattress and pillows. Thank you once again for your comments and we hope to see you again in the near future. Regards the Lakelovers team Property Owner

  • "Lovely property, and in a good location."

    We note that 3 recent visitors questioned the lack of a 'starter pack' for the log burner and the response in each case being that the owner was rectifying the situation - well they still haven't! Also not a single 'tab' for the dishwasher? This is the first 5* Lakelovers property we have been to that has been missing this type of 'little touch'. Come on, don't blame it all on Covid, you can do better. However, we had a great time and would recommend the property.

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts Mr Leeder. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. We are sorry you didn't have the starter pack, we were in discussion with the Housekeeping team regarding the packs at the time. Our house keeping team are aware, it has now been addressed and wood is now supplied for each booking. As for the dishwasher tablets, we apologise for that as well, we have told the house keeping team to please check the supply of tablets during every changeover. We appreciate your time to contact us and hope to see you again soon Property Owner

  • "Fabulous cottage, lovely and clean and warm."

    Tasteful and comfortable furnishings. Beautiful walks from the cottage. Particularly enjoyed the walk to Ambleside, Grasmere with lunch at the Britannia and Alcock Tarn. Disappointed that after a long journey, there wasn’t a starter pack of logs to enable us to light the fire. It does mention this in the cottage reviews from others that the owners had rectified this so we didn’t take any. Thank you.

    The only thing I would say is, we knew there was a log burner and usually when we have been in winter to a cottage, logs have been provided. We did manage to source some, but we could have arrived prepared had we known. Many thanks for a lovely stay at your property

    Thank you very much for your comments. The owner has taken onboard your feedback and has now supplied a starter amount of logs for the burner. There are local suppliers either in Grasmere, Ambleside or Penrith where guests can stock up. We appreciate your time to contact us and hope to see you again soon. The Lakelovers team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage, well maintained and comfortable beds."

    The location is excellent with lovely views. It was a great stay. The only bit of feedback we could think of was no welcome hamper of any kind, which we've had at every other cottage over the years, so don't expect to turn up and there be a pint of milk, some lovely scones or any other lovely treats which is a shame considering how much the cottage is and nor is any wood provided for the fire, even just for one night.

    Thank you very much for your comments Mr Briggs and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. We are pleased you had a lovely stay at Honeywood House. The owner has taken on board your comments and is putting in place a starter supply of wood for guests to use for their first night. The welcome hamper is individual to each property and at the discretion of the owner. We hope the above doesnt deter you from returning to Honeywood House again in the near future.

    The kitchen was brilliant we were able to prepare and cook our own meals as the equipment and crockery was all clean and in excellent condition. All the rooms were spotless , hats off to the cleaners they had done an amazing job especially in these COVID times , the addition of The White Company products was lovely , the house smelt lovely all week. All the bedrooms and bathrooms had been prepared to a very high standard. The addition of seating in the garden was great and we were able to dine inside and out.

The property

A high-end honeypot for discerning Lakelovers!

The epitome of Lakeland luxury with all the character and cosiness of a traditional rural home, Honeywood House offers a tasteful and tranquil escape for six in sensational surroundings.

Just a scenic stroll from the centre of gorgeous Grasmere village, yet pleasantly tucked away to provide that ever so sought-after seclusion, you'll be fully relaxed here, and ready to explore the best the Lakes has to offer. Arriving at this striking slate-built and substantial property, circumscribed by fine hill scenery, you know you're in for a holiday to remember straight away.

A charming building to match the picturesque character of pretty Grasmere, Honeywood House sits on the fringe of this beloved village, perfectly balanced between centrality and peace.

Inside, the fine Farrow & Ball décor and elegant furnishings are complemented by excellent facilities, including a high quality contemporary kitchen, where you can rustle up sustaining meals for your party's adventures, and three sumptuous en-suites with monsoon showers.

One comes with a free-standing bath tub, too, for some serious unwinding!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

GRASMERE

Ambleside 5 miles; Windermere 9 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park is the lovely village of Grasmere, probably best known as the home of William Wordsworth, a place he once described as "The most loveliest spot that man hath found". Any visit to Grasmere needs to include The Grasmere Gingerbread shop, where the Wilson family has been making gingerbread for over 60 years. Also in the village are a number of shops, pubs, a church which dates back to the 13th century, and Grasmere Lake. Grasmere Sports takes place every August, where you can watch participants compete in a variety of sports, including Cumberland wrestling. Just five miles away is the town of Ambleside and Lake Winderemere where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants and the 17th century Bridge House, which is one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District. Cruises, boat trips and watersports can all be enjoyed on Lake Windermere, and the towns of Windermere and Keswick are also within driving distance. Grasmere is a wonderful base for your Lake District retreat.
