    “Honister Cottage is compact, but beautifully furnished and appointed.”

    It is warm and cosy and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The wood burning stove in the sitting room is run on gas, which we hadn’t realised, so we didn’t need the logs we had brought from home, but it was a lovely feature to enjoy and provided instant heat on top of the very efficient central heating. Both the bathrooms were lovely with excellent showers. The location of the cottage is very good, and the pub, just a hundred yards down the road would be another asset, had it ...

    It is warm and cosy and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The wood burning stove in the sitting room is run on gas, which we hadn’t realised, so we didn’t need the logs we had brought from home, but it was a lovely feature to enjoy and provided instant heat on top of the very efficient central heating. Both the bathrooms were lovely with excellent showers. The location of the cottage is very good, and the pub, just a hundred yards down the road would be another asset, had it not had to close its doors due to the pandemic. The views from the front windows were lovely and we did not feel overlooked at all by the neighbouring properties. The two bedrooms are quite small, but the beds were very comfortable. It was a bonus that the second bedroom, whilst specified for only one person, actually had a double bed. Unfortunately we can to cut our holiday short, due to the region going from tier 2 to tier 4 midway through our stay, but the owner gave us a refund for the unused nights. Honister cottage has lots to commend it, and is ideal for a couple who like a beautiful quiet environment with lots of walks out from the front door, and many places to visit by car, when the pandemic restrictions are lifted.

You'll find comfortable space for 2 or 3 people. There's a super dining area within the cottage and both the Outgate Inn and the acclaimed Drunken Duck Inn and Restaurant are within enviably easy reach.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.

No babies or children under 12 years of age.
