“Lovely”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We stayed 3 nights here last month and loved it
It is a pretty bungalow with a lovely garden in Coniston village, about 15min walk to lake
There are only 3 rooms, we had room 3 which was spacious and comfortable with a lovely big shower room
Breakfasts were excellent, and the owners and Vicki very friendly and helpful
Highle recommended

We stayed for one night whilst on a walking holiday in the fells. This is a good old fashioned well run B&B. Good size bedroom, smallish bathroom. You get a key to the front door as well as your room so you can come and go as you please. Well located not far from the local pubs for a few beers and dinner. Breakfast was the best we had, had in seven days. They will provide a packed lunch if asked, they also take credit cards and debit cards which is an added bonus as not many B&B/Guesthouses do.

We were pleased to see you mention the packed lunch and that it is possible to pay by card at Orchard Cottage. These are things that people don't always realise we offer so thank you very much and we were glad you enjoyed your stay with us

We just completed the "Furness Way" waking 7 days through the south lakes, staying in hotels and B&B's. Orchard Cottage was the best accommodation, best breakfast, best welcome - everything.
Our room was large, airy, super clean. Beautiful white cotton bedding, superbly comfy beds. Bath and shower (yes both, in a B&B!) with tons of hot water.
And the little darling ducklings and their parents - so adorable!
We are going back for a nice long weekend before the end of the summer.

We travelled to Coniston for a Wedding, and stayed in this B&B for 3 nights over a bank holiday weekend. The place is located in the heart of the village, but our wedding was over the lake, about a mile and a half away. The owners were very friendly and offered to give us a lift there, but we decided to walk anyway.

A particular highlight was the breakfast. We had read about the home-made honey on the reviews here and looked forward to trying it, but there was none available (its been a bad a bad year for Dave's bees). However the rest of the breakfast was fantastic. The eggs were from Dave's chickens which he rears in an allotment in the village.

After the wedding, we walked up the Old Man of Coniston on Sunday, and ate at Torver (2 miles away). Overall a very pleasant stay and we would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Thank you for your review. We are hoping for a better summer this year than last, then perhaps the bees will produce more honey. At the moment the sun is out so fingers crossed.

After finishing our walk on the Cumbria Way from Ulverston this was a very welcoming B&B to arrive at. Our room was very generous in size and the bed very comfortable. Lovely lounge area to sit and relax in. Breakfasts were very good. They even made porridge for us which was not on the menu. Thanks so much for that. Coniston is a lovely small village and a great base to do walks from.

As an elderly but active retired couple we found Orchard Cottage the ideal accommodation with no stairs for our four day stay, with the very friendly hosts Dave and Jean. The rooms were immaculately clean and well equipped and the breakfasts were just to our individual liking. Coniston is a fantastic base for walkers, climbers and holiday makers in general (we've been many times before) the local people invariably being friendly and happy to pass the time of day - very different from the south east of England, although our home town of Broadstairs is friendly. We can't wait to go again.
