Situated over the road from the Orrest head walk entrance path (a must do walk for the stunning views ) the Orrest cottage is a lovely 3 room guest house. Also ideally situated for the pubs and restaurants of Windermere with free on street parking right outside. Rooms are original in their decor and spotlessly clean. As others have mentioned... More

We booked our room very last minute and were so happily surprised when we arrived to a gorgeous little loft suit. The communication was brilliant right from the start. The key is easy to access and the accommodation is a stones through from the station. David, the owner, was very knowledgable and gave us useful information on the area. The... More

Brilliant communication right from the beginning and flexible which suited us after a long drive up from London. Access to keys was very easy when owners were not around. More like a small hotel with guest lounge and breakfast room at entrance. Very very clean and it was evident as soon as you open the front door. We were in... More

The breakfast choice was excellent and delicious including homemade... More

We once again stayed at the Orrest Cottage for two nights. Superb welcome and excellent clean rooms. We stayed in the new loft suite this time, done room 2, next booking will be room 1! We received a warm welcome back from David and Laura. Excellent breakfast (David H how do you do your lovely scrambled eggs?) See you again... More

We stayed at Orrest Cottage for two nights and couldn't have been happier. We received a really warm welcome from David and Laura. The cottage was fabulous, we managed to get free parking right opposite, it was just a few minutes walk from the town centre, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean and a perfect base for a visit to the...

It's located about 5 minutes walk from the train station and a mile and a half from lake windermere. We stayed in the loft room which comes as a double bedroom and en suite and also... More

We stayed for one night at the orrest cottage and absolutely loved it. The cottage was very pretty, lots of small details. The loft suite was spacious and clean. The flapjacks were delicious and the owners were very welcoming. We will definitely return in the summer. It's definitely worth a stay here during your time in Windermere.
