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

I stayed here with my fiancee after proposing earlier that day, having stayed here together almost 3 years ago. We both have happy memories of it then and it has gotten even better since. We had the top floor room and love that it now has an adjoining lounge, the decor is lovely and the breakfast selection was brilliant too,... More

No one is on site--any correspondence is via phone Room is cramped--bathroom is also cramped--linens are sparse and poor quality Internet description is misleading Owner offered us a refund and then reneged. We were disappointed in his dismissive attitude regarding our experience.

really pleased with my stay in Orrest Cottage - comfy room, clean and stylish. David cooked a great breakfast and was very friendly. They provide a detailed weather forecast print at the breakfast table for those who are walking in the fells.

An amazing B&B with a warm welcome from David. Lovely touches in our room made it comfy, yet special e.g. jelly babies! Location is perfect, just a short stroll from the town centre and really close to the train station. The breakfast however, is the best part! Wonderful breakfast menu, using local ingredients, and cooked fresh to order by David.... More

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
