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.

We booked very late via booking.com for just the one night before going onto Keswick. David the owner emailed us within an hour giving us directions plus instructions on how to get in as we were due to arrive late on Sunday (normal booking 11am - 1pm) he also provided us with details regarding free parking, which is a bonus...

Honestly the bathroom looked like brand new to me even though the cottage was fully occupied each night we stayed there 2 - ridiculously convenient - 3 mins from train station, bus stop just on...

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

Amazing location...right on bus route and nearby train station and really handy to get to neighbouring villages. After a lovely sleep we were treated to an... More

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...
