This B&B oozes charm and character. With only 3 rooms for guests, you feel like you are staying at a friend's house rather than a B&B room. Everything regarding the stay reflects quality. From bone China crockery in your room and in the dining room to 'free trade' tea & coffee, Orchard Cottage makes your stay special. The B&B is... More

We stayed in the twin room during the hot spell, luckily the room did not get sun in the day so was cool in the night. Very clean and tidy, superb shower room. Breakfast was freshly cooked each day with a bonus of David's own bees honey, lovely. It was our Wedding Anniversary so I asked Jean if she would... More

Thank you for your review, sorry you found the towels scratchy, in the warm weather we dry them outside (friendlier to the environment) rather than in a tumble dryer, then pop them in the dryer for a few minutes to soften off. More

Stayed overnight at this B&B where my husband and I received a really warm and friendly welcome. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Walk-in wardrobe with plenty of hanging space! The breakfast was excellent, served in pleasant dining room overlooking gorgeous gardens. A vast array of cereals and fruits were provided and cooked food to order, which came to... More

Spent 3 nights here, excellent accommodation. Made so welcome by Jean and Dave and Vicky. Central location with pubs, shops all near by and not far from the Lake. Beautiful garden, much photographed by people walking by. Great breakfasts gave a good start for the days activities whether walking or something less strenuous. Will not hesitate to return and also... More

Our second visit to Orchard Cottage was excellent, just like the first one! This is a great B&B, good value for money, comfortable rooms, spotlessly clean, great breakfast, good parking and friendly hosts who kindly helped to dry off our walking clothing after we came back after a wet day on the fells! We could not ask for more. A... More

Such a shame the weather wasn't better for you but I'm sure it would improve as your walk continued as the rest of the week was quite good. We are quite used to drying people out ready for the next day. Thank you for finding the time to write your review. More
