“Beautiful cottage with fantastic views across what feels like a private river”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We have stayed here twice and enjoyed both visits very much. There is a fantastic little pub just down the road called the old mill. Great pint and fantastic food. The owners are accommodating and very friendly. Go ape is only 15 mins away and worth a visit.We will definately visit this beautiful little cottage again soon. Great for a birthday surprise and party or cosying up beside the log fire with a bottle of wine.

“Idyllic setting”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a lovely relaxing family break to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday. Cottage has stunning views over open countryside and you are only 2 miles from Balfron, a nice wee village with shops etc. Cottage was comfortable and well equipped . Even had our groceries delivered to cottage before we arrived! All this and only an hours drive from home. Will definitely return for another visit and recommend to family and friends.

“Beautiful view and peaceful setting”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just enjoyed a wonderful stay in the cottage. The weather was great so got to enjoy sitting having breakfast on the patio with stunning views and a lovely peaceful setting.

Beds were really comfy and as it was nice and quiet had a wonderful nights sleep. Great facilities and a lovely big table in the kitchen to sit and enjoy a meal and drinks with friends.

Overall a wonderful break.

“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.
