After a long trip, It was a relief to find it, so near the railway station. We were very well received by David and our room was very neat and comfortable, with little pleasing details. Great breakfast, a choice of delicious local dishes. But not only that, just 20 minutes walk from the BB gave us the first lovely view... More

Orrest Cottage is clean, quiet and cute, very small room. Handy to town and lake. It is located very near to the start of the Orrest Head walk which offers panoramic views over Lake Windermere and surrounding countryside. The breakfast menu is very creative and offers much choice. Although if you prefer cereals, muesli etc there is none on offer.... More

Spent three nights here last weekend and had a great time. The B&B is conveniently located minutes from the train station/bus stop/Natwest bank and supermarket. All the rooms are meticulously clean and tidy. Upon arrival our keys were easily accessed and an email was sent beforehand with full instructions. Orrest Head is literally over the road and if you go... More

Spent two nights at Orrest Cottage, ideal to visit Windermere, half an hour walking distance down to Bowness-on-Windermere. The B&B is mostly appreciated by walkers, easier to reach the surrounding fells. Building is pretty small, as the rooms, but with noticeable care and attention. David is a very gentle owner, breakfast is very good, even if breakfast time 8.30-9 is... More

Hi were glad you enjoyed your stay, the B&B is a 200 year old Lakeland cottage so naturally and by design cottages are different to hotels! they are quirky lovely and full of character if not massive in terms of square foot. Were sorry you thought the price was high, your stay was in August (the summer season) in the... More

We arrived at Orrest Cottage at about 12 on Saturday 16th August. David had very kindly sent instructions by email on how to access our room key. He also provided me with information on local eating places and was very helpful. Our room was number one on the first floor. It is a lovely room with a very comfortable bed... More

Wonderful location, excellent facilities, lovelly decor and one of the best breakfasts possible. David was extremely curtious, very helpful when i contacted him explaining the parking of our car and advising us where to travel around this stunning area. Thank you David for your hospitality. I would highly recommend guesting at the Orrest Cottage :-))

This B&B is outstanding, I have stayed in 5 star hotels where the breakfast isn't anywhere near as good as you get here. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner. I can honestly say this is the best B&B i have ever stayed in, the rooms were immaculate and windermere town is literally around the corner (1... More
