“True Scottish Hospitaality”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Had a lovely time at HoneyHolme Cottage, The views are stunning from the spacious living room. Albeit the weather was cold and frosty inside the cottage with the log burner it was warm and comfortable. It was like a true home from home. I would definitely recommend this true gem to anyone who loves the scenery walks countryside there's no better place!

“Honeyholm is a real find.”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Who would think to find such a gem of a place only 40 minutes outside of Glasgow? My partner and I (plus dogs and friends) stayed for the weekend. The cottage is spacious, but at the same time warm, cosy and welcoming. It is set in the most gorgeous surroundings at the foot of the Campsie fells, right next to a picture-perfect stone arched bridge. The owners (Julie and Ian) were wonderful hosts: we arrived the first evening to find waiting for us champagne, chocs, and a plateful of croissants and home-made scones! They were incredibly friendly and amenable, always on hand to help with anything and everything. We are already arranging to stay there again next year.

“Perfect Accomodation”
Reviewed 14 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We booked the accommodation for 4 nights, Ian was very accommodating at short notice for 2 of us + dogs.
Whilst I can't control the weather which at the time was pretty poor, the accommodation more than made up for this. The accommodation is pretty much a home from home, everything you need can be found within this delightful property. The property is perfectly located and catered for our every need, whilst also providing a lovely log burner, which after a day outside in the rain was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this property to others

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Honeyholm and can't fault it. The cottage is furnished to a very high standard and is situated in a stunning location. Very close to Glasgow and Stirling if you want to visit the city but at the same time located in the country with excellent access to walks and villages. The owners (Ian and Julie) will make you feel very welcome and provide you with good tips for sightseeing visits. if you're planning on visiting Scotland this place is perfectly placed to allow you to make the most of your holiday. We will certainly be coming back and would recommend it without hesitation.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself, my parents and our dog had a wonderful 5 nights at the cottage. It's incredibly spacious, fully equipped for the family and comes with a stunning view. Julie is very welcoming and hospitable. The accommodation is ideally situated to discover Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and is not too far away from the coast, Glasgow and Edinburgh. It's a lovely cottage with character and I hope to return soon!
