My boyfriend and I spent the night here and thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing and comfortable stay. Upon arrival, we were greeted by David who showed us to our clean, tidy room.

We recently stayed in Orrest Cottage for a short break. David, the host, was welcoming, friendly and informative and made a great breakfast! The location of the cottage was superb, very central, and the room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely return.

Beautiful little B&B - really cosy, nicely decorated, very clean. We had everything we needed in our room and added extras (sweets, hot chocolate, plenty of shower gel, shampoo etc). The breakfast's are first class with lots of choice and fresh produce. David is super friendly and chilled. Although the owners don't stay there, I think this is so much... More

Owner was really friendly, made to feel really welcome. The rooms were in an excellent condition, really clean. The breakfast was one of the best we have had anywhere. Would highly recommend staying there for a long weekend, plenty of places to visit in the area.
