Beautiful place to stay. It's right on the main road as you come into windemere. David was so lovely and welcoming. My room was immaculate, beautifully decorated and had plenty of home comforts. There is an extensive choice of breakfasts, I chose the full English which was one one of the best I have ever tasted! Local good quality products... More

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.

If you’re travelling to the Lakes by train, Orrest Cottage is ridiculously convenient. It’s about 4 minutes’ walk in a straight line from the station (past an equally convenient Booths supermarket). The local taxi firms know where it is, and at night we often called up and took a quick, cheap ride down to Bowness for some food. During our... More

We stayed here for two nights for a short break in the Lakes. We got the train in and the Cottage is less than a three minute walk from Windermere station. Bus station is also nearby. The owner was there to greet us and was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a choice of rooms and spent time explaining... More
