  • "This was our second stay at Honeypot Cottage and once again we had a lovely holiday."

    Coming back to the cottage after a day out feels like you're coming home. Plenty of walking again and went on the train to Lancaster this time. Thank you for the welcome pack.

  • "Just returned from a lovely short break at Honey Pot Cottage."

    What a lovely place to visit with lots of really good walks and returning to this lovely cottage was the icing on the cake. All the facilities you need and very comfortable beds. I was particularly impressed with the little things that normally nag at me when I stay in a holiday cottage such as somewhere to put your suitcase and a shelf in the shower to put all your toiletries on. A lot of thought has obviously been put into ensuring you have a comfortable break. Only niggle was the noise from the fan in the bathroom when you turned the light on, as I'm a light sleeper this did wake me up. However I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

    Thank you. It is a fantastic area. Sorry about the bathroom fan - we will get that looked at. John & Louise Property Owner

  • "This was an excellent property in an excellent location."

    Ideal for walking and days out to local places. The village is lovely and your a stones throw away from the 4 local pubs. If like us you enjoy doing things through the day then relaxing in the evening either in doors or down at the local this is the ideal place to stay. The property had everything you need. Clean, tidy and comfortable.

    We're really glad you enjoyed staying at Honeypot Cottage. It really is a smashing village. Hope to see you again. John & Louise Property Owner

Location was perfect for the things we had planned - Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes, also the forest of Bowland. We would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful home stay away from home.

    The cottage is in the heart of High Bentham, so is very close to shops, pubs etc but nicely set back off the road. Lovely back garden with table and chairs - just a shame we didn't have the weather to use it! Would definitely like to visit again.

  • "The cottage is ideally located in the centre of high bentham."

    Didn't use car as much as everything was within walking distant. The cottage was spotless. Cosy living/dining area. Kitchen was bigger than we thought it would be. Had everything we needed to cook. Gas fire in living room was brilliant as we had some rainy days. The two bedrooms were good sizes for small cottage. The beds were the most comfortable ones we had stayed in. The sofa and chair were good size but need replacing as not comfortable to sit on . Could have done with 2 sets of towels each as due to weather couldn't hang washing out, and no air dryer in house to put out wet clothes on. The parking space in front of cottage was really good as only allowed 30 minutes on main street. Would definitely stay here again. Pubs, restaurants, shops were really good.

    Everything you need for a comfortable stay is provided. Beautifully decorated and very clean. Only slight niggle, was trying to lock the back door as the lock is faulty. One day we had to leave it unlocked, which made us a little nervous. Other than that it was an excellent place to stay with a couple of nice pubs and take-a-ways within yards of the property. A good base for visiting attractions during the day and returning at night to cozy up in front of the TV.

    It was easily the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Despite being set back back from the main road it is very quiet and the neighbours are really nice. We used the cottage as a walking base and was really easy and quick to get to Ingleborough, Austwick, Malam and Clapham. There were also great walks on the doorstep, especially when walking our dog morning and evening. The welcome hamper was also an unexpected surprise, thank you.

  • "A very enjoyable stay."

    A big thanks for the welcome pack. Found the cottage very cosy, just right for the two of us and our pet dog. Found the front and back door locks a little difficult to open occasionally and the sofa a little uncomfortable. Other than that all very good. Great local amenities and two good pubs, Black Lion especially. Beautiful area for walking and sightseeing. Left out blue recycling bin as per instructions and found a label on it later saying unable to collect but with no reason marked. Everything in bin was recyclable. Would love to return at some stage.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Honey Pot Cottage."

    The decor was really bright and fresh, all furniture, fittings and linens were good quality and the location was perfect. It is in a pretty, little rural town which is set in beautiful countryside but has all the amenities you could need. There is a bakery, chip shop, cash machines, grocery shops, butchers, children's play area, train and a fabulous craft shop all within a few minutes walk. There is even a train station that is a 10 minute walk. The perfect base for exploring the area. The owners were friendly and offered to help with anything we needed and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore this part of the dales.

    The offroad parking is also a bonus. Due to a family emergency we had to extend our stay from 4 days to 7 and spoke with the home owner who was very helpful and assisted us in getting this sorted with Sykes. If need to hire a place in Bentham again in the future this will definitely be our first choice.

  • "This was our second time here and, despite the wet January weather, we still enjoyed our weeks stay."

    There was two of us and Stan, the small dog. We feel it that it would be cramped for more than two but it does accommodate 4 and all provisions and facilities are there for this number of guests. The cottage has good quality facilities, very clean and pet friendly. The central heating was excellent in every room and kept us snug whilst it rained for most of the stay. The gas fire was very warm as Stan will confirm. The two bedrooms have double beds and nice quality bedding and towels. We think that the cottage has “nice vibes” and being pretty solid you don’t hear the neighbours. Bentham is a good place to stay and a fair choice of pubs and eating places given its size. A Co-op and Spar are very close by and open late so no problems for shopping. There’s a Bus stop right outside to Ingleton or Kirkby Stephen and a train station about 5 minute walk to Leeds or Lancaster means that you don’t need a car to enjoy being in Bentham. There’s no shortage of walks 5 minutes from the front door into the countryside and the riverbank walks are very relaxing. You will need waterproof boots if it’s been raining heavy for some of the walks. The cottage is in the village centre and easy walking to most of the 4 pubs (which means no drink driving) but plenty of gastro pubs out into the countryside if you wish. Off road parking right outside the front door meant that access for those with mobility issues is minimal. Stairs are not too steep and plenty of hand rails. A contact number was left for any issues (we had none at all) and a welcome pack with card is a friendly touch. The big test for any stay is would you go back and stay there again- for us it’s definitely yes.

    The Cottage had all the facilities needed to make our stay very comfortable and everything as advertised on the web site. A great feature of this Cottage is its location and the one parking space right outside the front door. Although the weather was not really warm enough for us to sit out in the garden on this visit it would be great in the height of summer. Once again I would recommend this Cottage and we would not hesitate to come back again as our Old English Sheep dog enjoyed it as well, especially visiting the 3 pubs in the village.

The property

The delightful mid-terrace house of Honey Pot Cottage rests in the heart of Bentham.

Idyllically positioned between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is the perfect rural getaway for a family of four.

Lying at the front of the dwelling is a handy off-road parking space, for your convenience.

Enter the property to discover a rustic sitting room, the ceiling is adorned with exposed beams and the space is accompanied by a toasty gas stove-effect fire to warm you up after a day of countryside rambling; switch on the Smart TV to enjoy a movie night.

Continue to the back of the property to come across a well-equipped kitchen, the room has been fitted to a high standard with bright, white cabinets that host all your appliances to whip up those culinary delights; additionally, you can find a washing machine for your laundry facilities.

Enjoy an alfresco evening meal on the raised patio as the sun begins to set over this stunning part of Yorkshire.

After a lovely evening packed with quality time with your loved ones, head upstairs to rest your head in two wonderful double bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling and ample storage for your belongings.

The bedrooms benefit from being near a shower room that is ideal for those evenings where you want to wash away the day in the walk-in cubicle, before wrapping yourself up in a warm towel from the heated rail.

A highlight of the property is its location, Honey Pot Cottage rests less than a mile away from three fantastic pubs, along with two convenience stores; Bentham also hosts two golf courses for those afternoons where you want to enjoy a tournament with the family.

Venture north east to the village of Ingleton to discover a picturesque gateway into the Yorkshire Dales National Park; embark on the Waterfalls Trail to discover the stunning Thornton Force Waterfall, before hiking further to the fascinating White Scar Cave, or climb the Ingleborough Mountain Peak and explore its famed caves.

Spend the day in Kirkby Lonsdale and view the quaint Devil's Bridge, before trekking up the Radical Steps to the stunning viewpoint of Ruskin's View, where you can see the winding River Lune and the peaks of the National Park in the distance.

Enjoy an outing in Morecambe and spend some time strolling along the promenade, before touring the Stone Jetty and Dog Friendly Beach; spend the afternoon playing adventure golf and splashing in the waters of Happy Mount Park.

There is so much left of this region to discover, be sure to travel further into the Yorkshire Dales National Park or Forest of Bowland AONB to find more outdoors activities; why not visit Lancaster for a day out with a difference?

For your next North Yorkshire adventure, choose Honey Pot Cottage.

About the location

BENTHAM, YORKSHIRE

Ingleton 3.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 8.4 miles; Morecambe 16.8 miles

Positioned just west of the Yorkshire Dales, on the northern fringes of the Forest of Bowland, this lovely town is split into High Bentham and Low Bentham, with the babbling River Wenning running between the two. The town boasts an annual agricultural show, with handicraft, horticulture and livestock competitions, which dates back to the 19th century. In addition to this is the annual Carnival and funfair, entertaining a thriving community with workshops, music and many fundraising events. High Bentham has an array of public houses and eateries to choose from, and the railway station sits on the Leeds to Morecambe line. For walking enthusiasts, there are colour coded circular trails of different lengths and capabilities, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Ingleton offers some wonderful caves and tumbling waterwalls, along with a year-round climbing wall and a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. Enjoy a trip out to Morecambe Bay with your bucket and spade, where you can fly your kites, build sandcastles or simply take a stroll along the promenade. For more independent shops and restaurants, the town of Kirkby Lonsdale is only a short drive away, with access to Ruskin's View. Take the footpath from the churchyard at St. Mary's Church and follow the trail high about the River Lune, where you can marvel at a panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall. A wonderful location for exploring National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North West coastline.
