In the middle of Coniston and handy for all the local pubs, cafes etc as well as good walking right from the doorstep. Warm and comfortable with all facilities as you would expect, friendly owners and staff. recommended.

It is good to read that you felt at home at Orchard Cottage, it is so useful to have the lounge where you can all meet up and chat about the days walking or your plans for the following day. A shame it was abit of a soggy weekend for you but hopefully it will be better next time. Thank... More

We loved staying at Orchard Cottage! We were here for 3 nights in early October 2014. Great location right in the village, with parking on the property. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with a lovely en-suite bathroom and separate shower. Attention to detail is first class. Breakfasts were excellent with a good selection of cereals, fruits... More

Stayed here on our hike of the Cumbria way. We were beat by the time we got there. the shower was great, the rooms were small but just what you need after a 15 mile hike. Good breakfast. The garden is beautiful.

We arrived here after a huge day walk from Ulverston. Great location very close to everything. Friendly hosts. Very tidy and clean rooms but very small...if you have largish suitcases. Beds very firm with nice linen. Neat bathroom. The garden is stunning and the breakfast varied and delicious, made to order. Good for an overnight stop.

Saw the reviews on Tripadvisor beforehand, and this B&B certainly lived up to its reputation. Very hospitable hosts, brilliant breakfast, clean and tidy rooms well appointed with a very good shower. Location is great right on the main street through Coniston, parking spaces very useful since there isn't a lot of space around Coniston to park. Our room looked over... More

Thank you for writing your review, isn't it lovely that we are having a summer where you can sit and watch the World go by whilst having your breakfast. Our own ducks are often the source of the entertainment as they have their regular walk out in the front garden each morning. More

We had no idea what to expect when we turned up at the Orchard Cottage absolutely soaked through to the skin - we had walked from Grasmere through several hours of very heavy rain. We were met by one of the family to a warm and friendly welcome; they immediately put up a drying maiden to dry off our clothes... More

How unlucky were you with the weather as we are having such a scorching summer? We are used to drying people out when they arrive but this year wet guests have definitely been in the minority but we do have all the facilities to dry you out. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your walking holiday. Thank you for your... More

Stayed for a few days to have a touring base for The Lakes. Accommodation was first rate with a very friendly and efficient family staff.
