“beautiful cottage and stunning location”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed here in January (and my apologies for the delay in reviewing) as an annual girls' trip we've been doing in the Loch Lomond area for around 8 years now and found The Honeyholm via one of the holiday rentals sites. It was important to have somewhere I could take my diabetic cat as she needs medication 12hourly. Everyone absolutely loved it, and bearing in mind this was 6 women - no mean feat!!! It's ideal for families as well, having stair gates and fire guards all to hand, games and dvds also ready for use. The décor is lovely and fresh and I could have moved into the kitchen! There is loads of equipment already in the kitchen, plenty of dishes, glasses etc. We will be back for next year and have renamed our "Loch Lomond" trip "Balfron". Showers are all great, the master bathroom is just stunning and the views, which we had at the time of snow are gorgeous. We didn't venture into Balfron but will most likely next time. It's easily found (when it's not snowing and covering the road signs!). I cannot fault the cottage.

“Oasis of Tranquility”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Within an hour of our Ayrshire home, Honeyholm Cottage is set in a tranquil area on the river Endrick. What a location! Even our dog 'Baillie' loved the walks and the large garden to the front on the property.
Yes, the home baked scones and jam were there on the table for our arrival along with a starter pack of essentials - bread, eggs, milk etc.
This three bedroom cottage was superbly equipped and even a log-burning stove in the sitting room. Views out of the patio doors (and the three bedrooms) is stunning...down to the river and bridge and off into the distance the (snow-covered) hills.

This is one of the most comfortable cottages we have booked - especially as it is pet friendly. The welcome by Julie was great and everything was explained to us when we arrived.

A complete chill out venue within minutes of the towns of Balfron and Kilearn.

Within four miles is one of the best pub'restaurants we have come across - the Old Mill in Kilearn. Top marks for food and outstanding service - with a smile.

“Great cottage, great views and very relaxing.”

Had a great time at this stunning cottage. The kids had a fantastic time playing outside on the trampoline, swings and treehouse. Beautiful views over rolling country side to the campsie hills Booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 4.. It was that relaxing. Thanks to Julie and Ian. We will be back.

“Lovely cottage in a great location - want to go back!!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Honeyholm for a week and we had a brilliant time. The cottage is really lovely, everything you could wish for and would recommend it to anyone. We walked through the door to freshly baked scones and homemade jam which was delicious. The cottage is really clean and well kept with all the essentials and more for a great holiday.
It is in a good location for getting around, we went walking everyday and explored the area of Loch Lomond.
We are now back home and want to be back there - only had one day of slight drizzle so did everything we wanted.

“A hidden retreat”
Reviewed 16 August 2012 for a stay in March 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this beautiful restored cottage In March 2012, and as soon as we entered, we relaxed within this comfortable, spacious and inviting home. We loved the decor and would like to steal some of the design ideas! The kitchen and living area was large with lots of space for our small baby to roll around. Our bedroom was quaint and calming and the other rooms also looked nicely decorated. We were welcomed with sandwiches, fresh scones and jam, much needed fuel after a long drive from our previous accomodation. The weather was mild and sunny so we had the opportunity to sit out on the back patio for breakfast and lunch, where we had a lovely unobstructed view of the countryside, with a little stream in the foreground.
Juile and her husband were helpful yet did not intrude on our privacy despite living next door. They accomodated us with very late notice and gave us extra time to pack up all the baby items, which took quite a while... Would definitely recommend this place for couples, families or groups of friends.
