“Cosy, refreshing hideaway!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a lovely few days at Orchard Cottage, and particularly enjoyed the wood-burning fire which made us feel very cosy on the windy days. The cottage is well presented, and has a homely feel as well as being a lovely change of scenery, in a setting that allowed us to get away from the busyness of life and to rest and relax.

Jenny was incredibly helpful in adding to our fire-building skills, and was a delightful host. We accidentally left something behind and she kindly posted it to us - very much appreciated!

We enjoyed the sights of Ulverston and taking a walk up to the monument by the coast. We visited a lovely church on the Sunday we stayed, and would be very happy to visit again in future. Thank you for a lovely stay!

“Lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This really is a very pretty and homely cottage in a peacful location providng a perfect get away, and the hosts were very nice offering to take us into town and wash our towels. It is in a good location to visit the lakes only a short drive to the bottom of Lake Windermere, and fabulous value for money. We really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for 4 nights and can only describe it as wonderful. Jenny and Brian perfect hosts, flowers in kitchen on arrival, kindling and logs every day and even an offer to lay the fire for us. Good selection books to read, games to play and a selection dvds. Kitchen fully equipped, cosy sitting rronm. Hard to move from dining table as busty watching the birds in the apple trees. Good location and would definately recommend

“Peaceful, beautiful, and friendly rural retreat.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Jenny was delightful very amiable person. She was very attentive without ever being intrusive and caring of our requirements, nothing was ever too much bother. The place was just as it appeared on the photos. The setting was uniquely rural and perched upon a hill with lovely and spacious views. Everything I could've wished for in a Lakeland retreat - a real log fire ready to be lit, soft and cosy bedding, airy cottage. Very decent Wifi. On one night we had a power cut Jenny brought around some solar powered garden lights which was very considerate of her. Highly recommended!

“A peaceful Oasis and Warm and Friendly Owners”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

You can't help but love Orchard Cottage, the perfect relaxing lakes getaway. Stunning views over roaming hills, peaceful, quiet location, and super cosy cottage, with lots of little personal touches. Jenny the owner is reason alone to stay here. She exudes warmth and kindness, and clearly loves to make people feel at home, and I promise you will love her too!

Thank you very much for your feedback Kay. It is always a pleasure to welcome you back. We are having all the double glazing replaced this month so the views will be clearer for you next time. We will certainly be looking to upgrade the television as soon as we can too. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

“Peaceful stay and friendly owner”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a lovely little place in a rural location, peaceful with lovely views and countryside all around it. Inside it's quite well laid out and roomy enough. Good kitchen with everything you need to cook, but a new frying pan would be a bonus.
The owner is hospitable and very helpful and offered information readily. Everything is supplied except bath towels but these would be readily supplied if required, she also offered to do washing if we needed it. The bedlinen was clean and comfortable and good quality.
The only point I would make is that the shower is minute, it has the sink and toilet in as well and after showering everything is dripping wet including your toiletries, it's also not easy to get dried off unless you traipse water through the kitchen and lounge.
A lovely stay nonetheless.
