Location description from owner

The England region

Whittlesey is an historic market town located approx 7 miles from Peterborough on the edge of the Fenland area.

The town contains a variety of architecture dating back several centuries. Whittlesey is mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle circa 972 as Witlesig and in the Doomsday book in 1086 under the name of Wittleseia. The town name is derived from a Saxon name meaning island, hence Witel's Island.

Traces of the Whittlesey area's early history can be seen in remains found at Eldernell and Glassmoor. A major new find of bronze age items at the Must Farm site Kings Dyke made national headlines in 2011.

The Flag Fen Archaeology Park houses many ancient wooden and metal items found in the local area dating back to the Bronze, Iron and Roman Ages and is approx 3 miles away.

Whittlesey town centre has many well preserved buildings. These vary from timber framed houses with thatched roofs through stone buildings to local brick properties.

The town centre has an impressive Market Square. Central to this is the late 17th century Buttercross. This is a square open market house. The market was founded by Royal Charter in 1715 and still takes place every Friday. This is a 5 min walk away.

The town has a fine selection of public houses, cafes and restaurants . The George Hotel on the Market Square has recently been refurbished . Restaurants serving Indian, Chinese , Italian and traditional English food are all located on or around the Market Square. All open lunchtimes & evening . A large range of local shops close to Honeyway cottage are perfect for those self catering.

“Fab! Cozy, charming, unique, clean and warm!”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2016

Excellent! Great stay in a lovely cottage tucked away in Whittlesey. Excellent features, facilities and furniture throughout. Made our weekend very special! :-)

Owner's reply: Many thanks for taking the time to give Honeyway such a great review. Great to meet you, have a great Christmas and best wishes for 2017.

“Lovely cottage with lots of little decor touches which made it feel like a home from home”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

Communications with the owners was good, with prompt replies to all my enquiries by email prior to our arrival and clear, timely information from them just prior to our holiday. We were greeted by Paul, one of the owners, and given a very comprehensive overview of the cottage features and key info on the village (best restaurants, which ones need prebooking etc) - extremely helpful. The cottage itself was beautiful, very well set up with all the basic equipment you'd need plus lost of little homey touches that made the whole place feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend this cottage.

Owner's reply: Hi, Many thanks for the great review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us & thanks for leaving Honeyway in such fine fettle. Hope to see you again maybe someday. Best wishes Paul & Sasha

“A Touch of Class!”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2013

A beautiful period cottage which was very homely, well kept with everything you would wish for and more. Owners are very accommodating and could not do enough to make our stay a special one. Would highly recommend.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Paul & Sasha

“excellent value or money”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

My self and partner have just stayed for 2 nights. Cannot speak highly enough of this property. Is small but very well designed and furnished. Lovely little private garden. Was immaculately clean and lots of little extras included in price. Paul was there to meet and greet. Only criticism is - could you please do something about the weather next time. Hope to visit you again very soon. Carolyn

Owner's reply: Many thanks for the kind review . It was lovely to meet you and will try & organise some better weather for your next visit.

“Fantastic cosy character cottage”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2012

The very friendly, helpful and responsive new owner met us to give us the keys and show us around. Once you are inside the cottage it's like being in another world. Really cosy, characterful (lots of old wooden doors, beams and other things that give you insight into its history) but it has been really well decorated and modernised inside. It was warm and the bed very comfortable. Everything about it was lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your kind review, so glad you enjoyed stay. Hope to see you again in the future, best wishes

“Lovely!”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

Cottage is lovely, a real 'get away from it all' experience to be there. There isn't alot to do in the town itself, but so many nice places to visit in the surrounding areas, in particular Stamford and Peterborough. The cottage has all the facilities you could need and really is idyllic! !

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet . Best wishes.

“Great cottage”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2012

We had a great time and cottage is very cosy and comfortable... We had great and relaxing holiday.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind review, best wishes

“A Lovely Cottage”

Reviewed 5 Mar 2012

A wonderful place to stay overnight when exploring Cambridgeshire or surrounding market towns. The cottage is of a very high standard - lovely authentic decor, brilliantly equipped kitchen, good bath/shower facilities, and lovely lounge with some DVDs to watch through the night. Owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The village itself does not offer much to see or do so it is more of a place to stay and that's it.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your positive review, glad you enjoyed your stay!
