We stayed here for a night at the end of January. Collection of the keys for a locked box outside helped us greatly as there was no rush to get there. The room itself with an en-suit was lovely and very clean. The breakfast was fantastic! there was plenty of choice and cooked well. The location of the B&B is... More

Absolutely fantastic. It couldn't be more conveniently located. Easy to find with parking outside and only a 20 min walk from the Bowness pubs and restaurants. If you don't fancy the walk there's plenty of options for food and drink less than 5 mins away. Warm, clean, friendly and David was an excellent host in the morning, making us feel... More

We stayed here for one night before new year. The stay was lovely. You collected your key from a locked box at the front door and let yourself in. The room was cosy with a shower and dos the job intended with a comfy bed. There was none there overnight so you just do your own thing. They ask you... More

Fab guest house - couldn't ask for more. Everything you need, clean, tailored, accessible to amenities, cosy, close to station, great food, but most importantly - wonderful hosts.

We visited in July 2015 and absolutely loved it. Great attention to detail in the rooms and personalised welcome messages. Definitely a five star breakfast - the kind of meal you would pay good money for. The host was warm and welcoming and gave us great advice about Windermere. Can't wait to go back and visit again.

Oh dear, what a hideous review for such a beautiful place. My husband and I come from New Zealand, we were travelling around Scotland and England for about 8 weeks during the Rugby World Cup. We stayed at over 29 different hotels, B&B's and private homes. Some were relatively ordinary and some where a delight. Orrest cottage was one of... More
