I booked a nights stay for my partner Jon's birthday - couldn't have been more pleased with my choice!!
Fabulous location, 2 minute walk from Windermere bus and train station, plenty places to park close by. We had a beautiful comfortable room - with an extremely comfortable mattress! I was slightly concerned that room 1(at the front) would be noisy but I need not have worried, had a lovely comfortable night.
Breakfast was superb!! Pre-ordered the night before, it was served hot and delicious!! Little additions of home made granola and bread were just gorgeous.
All this topped off with great hosts!! Dave and Laura were lovely, very welcoming and friendly!
We will DEFINITELY be returning - and not just to collect my coat!
HIGHLY recommended. - It's a gem!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be a great choice!!

We stayed in the 'Loft Suite', the rooms were very clean and beautifully presented with cute touches. Perfect for those looking for a romantic getaway. Breakfast was delicious and so much choice, even though we had the full English everyday. The B&B is very close to the train station and there's even a fish and chip shop next door! Only a 20 minute walk down to Bowness with excellent views of the lake from Orrest Head as well, only a 20-30 minute walk away. Would recommend Orrest Cottage to anyone wanting to go to the Lakes.

Room Tip: Choose the loft suite, well worth the extra money!

Stayed here for 2 nights last minute as a post Christmas break. We stayed in room 2, room was modern and also very clean. The cottage is in a lovely spot for either walkers or people who want to go and enjoy the restaurants/pubs. There was also plenty of choice for breakfast which was also delicious. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.

My partner and I stayed here for a long weekend just before Christmas, we stayed in room 1 which was lovely! Really comfortable bed, slept so well! Ensuite was very clean and modern and all toiletries are supplied!! Breakfasts were amazing, we tried out a different one everyday and they definitely set you up for a day out walking! Location was brilliant, very handy for the train and close to the pubs and restaurants in Windermere as only a leisurely 30 minute walk into bowness and the lake! David and Laura are so welcoming and helpful when it comes to good spots to walk/visit! Looking forward to coming back in the summer!!

We had a fantastic stay this New Year's Eve. The cottage is modern, spotlessly clean, warm and comfy. Breakfast the next day was delicious. The cottage is in Windermere a nice stroll away from Bo'ness or an easy bus ride. Perfect for walkers great base location if you are visiting sights of the lakes.

Room Tip: Room 3 in the loft is delightful with a separate living room with DVD player and DVDs to relax and enjoy
