Honey Pot Cottage is listed in The Guardian newspaper’s Top 50 places to stay April 2016!
A traditionally built stone and slate Lakeland terraced cottage, over 300 years old and oozing traditional charm and contemporary comfort in one of the most sought-after locations. Formerly part of an estate within the copyhold of the Manor of Hawkshead, Honey Pot Cottage was originally known as Courier Cottage. The cottage is part of the tiny hamlet of Outgate, where the original properties date back to the early 1700s and prior. Honey Pot Cottage, the only three-storey structure, is attached to Birkwray Farm Cottage, which dates from the 17th century and is a cruck beamed building and, on the other side, a cottage that was, at one time, the hamlet’s smithy. Relax after a day out in the hills in front of the wood burner in the beamed lounge, or enjoy a glass of wine on the tiny private terrace surrounded by the sweet, honeysuckle scented evening air. Just one mile north of Hawkshead and a ten minute drive to Ambleside, this cosy three storey holiday cottage has two well-appointed, dual aspect, double bedrooms (one can be converted to a twin), each with its own bathroom and great views. The cottage also boasts a kitchen cooks will love. Honey Pot Cottage is a mile from one of the Lake District’s best gastro pubs and micro-breweries, and just five miles from another gem which, in addition to gorgeous food and its own acclaimed micro-brewery, boasts a well-regarded smokehouse (smoking courses available). There is a friendly local pub just around the corner - and some seriously stunning country walks directly from the front door.
