AMAZING !!!. Great place to stay nice and comfy and excellent breakfast. David was a great host and the area is absolutely spot on .... Will definitely be giving this place another visit ..... Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere ........ Easy parking just outside the cottage and plenty of places of interest to visit.

Well located near to the railway stn., with plenty of parking available around the area with a small 5mins. walk into town centre. The room was clean and comfortable with small personal touches which added to a very friendly and pleasant stay. Breakfast was available with a large range of foods to satisfy everyones tastes and the large cooked breakfast... More

We visited for my birthday and only stayed the night. Very easy to find, fantastic location and easy access to the room on arrival (secure key box). We stayed in room 3 which of course as the other reviews state, is the largest area of the cottage due to the separate TV/DVD room and the extra shower room. However this... More

We were lucky to book the Orrest at the last minute on a flash visit to the lakes (we found out later that we only got it because of a last minute cancellation) ... and we were very pleasantly surprised! They've got a great system where on arrival you don't even need to meet the owners - you recover your... More

Visited as a surprise from my girlfriend for 2 nights. We found the stay homely, cosy and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our varied choices of breakfasts each morning especially the eggs from the spice hens. Overall a great experience and wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thanks David.

Stayed in Room 2 for 1 night, every last detail is there! Loved the personal touches - the welcome sign, the jelly beans, even the bottles of shampoo etc. The room was cost, bed was very comfy & the shower was lovely and powerful. Loved the idea of the key locks, we could come & go as we wanted and... More

Had a great stay at Orrest! We had room number 3, right on top with a private loft! Loved the extra space to watch TV and just chill. Bed was comfortable but must beware of the slanted ceiling, can get bumped on the head. Convenient location. Train station was about 200m away, so was the Booths supermarket. Cafés, restaurants all... More

We stayed here after taking part in the great north swim. It is a very nice little b&b. Plenty of choice for breakfast and the food was amazing! Welcomed with a chocolate orange, choice of tea, coffe or galaxy hot chocolate in the room which was fantastic!

We really had a great time when we were in Orrest Cottage in May. The location is convenient, just 2 minutes walk to windermere station, and 30 minutes walk to the Lake in Bowness. The breakfast is fantastic! The owner David comes to cook breakfast for his guests every morning, his culinary skill is really good, I love the traditional... More

Stopped for the night in May with my boyfriend and we felt the £85 tag expensive, especially given just a few weeks previous we'd had an apartment for £85 per night with our own kitchen/diner/lounge in a major city. When we walked up the 2 flights of stairs, we got in the room to find it small & cramped, indeed... More

David H, Owner at Orrest Cottage Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

We were massively disappointed to receive your review but also a little wary of its content and would question if it is in fact genuine. Its so wildly different to all our other reviews so we are confused as to how your experience could differ so much from the many hundreds of happy customers and reviewers. For example our breakfast... More
