Me and my boyfriend came to stay for 2 nights and couldn't have asked for anything more. The room was lovely and clean, had really nice finishing touches like an egg cup of sweets, galaxy hot choc and a selection of toiletries. Location was perfect. Every morning a perfect breakfast was served, there was 10 choices, I recommend the breakfast... More

We booked this on short notice as a nice little finish to our midweek break from Scotland. So we thought we would split the journey home and stop here. The pictures look lovely but sadly that's where the charm ended. When we arrived there was no one to greet us (we understand that we where out of their check in... More

Thanks for your detailed analysis of our business and your comments, naturally we feel them to be incredibly unfair and ill informed and very much different from the majority of comments on this and all other online forums, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but perhaps better and fairer to the business owner to stick to the...

Lovely rooms (stayed twice), fantastic breakfast cooked by a brilliant host (David), parking out front, convenient location to explore the lakes and walkable to Windermere centre. It's small and friendly, and we will certainly be back again.

Well positive first - very cutesy B+B and extremely clean although very small. We stayed for New Years Eve with friends so expected to pay more for this but really didnt feel that it was worth the £120 for the night. We traveled a long way and got there earlier than expected and the heating wasn't on so had to... More

Sorry you were disappointed with your stay on NYE. The price of £120 reflected the fact that is was New Year's Eve. Our rooms are normally from £59 and we had agonized at what to charge, and as you must be aware businesses universally put on massive premiums on nights like this. The price of £120 for two including full... More

All theses amazing reviews are true. ..its a beautiful cottage with everything you could need. Wonderful owners who can't do enough to help and also cook the most delicious homemade breakfast with tonnes of choice from a very authentic menu. Perfect location just by the walk to Orrest head but right by the town centre. The rooms are gorgeous, very... More

We've just returned from a two night stay at Orrest Cottage, everything about our stay (even the weather) was perfect. The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated, the food was great, (nice to be offered something different from your standard full English) and David was very welcoming, would definately stay again and will recommend to family who visit the lakes.

Just come home from our 3 night stay at Orrest Cottage thouroughly rested and planning our return already. The cottage, the host David, the breakfast and the surroundings all second to none. If you want somewhere to stay in Windermere and would prefer something more intimate, this is the place to stay. The rooms are clean and pleasant and unlike... More
