    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. We had a wonderful stay at Honeywood House , and would highly recommend it . The stroll into Grasmere is not too far and its location for the pubs and shop makes it a really good place to stay.

From local shops and supermarket to quaint tea rooms and acclaimed restaurants - the Good Food Guide. Listed Jumble Room is a treat for a special occasion. For touring by car or exploring the Lakes, the A591 leads you effortlessly south past Rydal Water to Ambleside on the northern shore of Lake Windermere, or north to Keswick and Derwent Water.

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 have 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, plus 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.
