Reviewed 28 May 2012

We stayed at Orrest Cottage for 3 nights.As soon as we got there we were made to feel very welcome. It has a very homely feel. Judy was very helpful giving us information on which walks to do,places to visit etc. The room we had (no.2) was lovely, very cosy and spotless,the bed was very comfy too. Breakfast was outstanding.There was a choice of just about everything and it kept us full for most of the day.
I would recommend Orrest Cottage in an instant.
Thanks again
Andrea & Paul.

We stayed over Christmas 2011 and received a warm welcome from Judy, the cottage is very easy to find and very nicely appointed. Our room on the first floor was modern and catered for all our requirements. Breakfast had to be on of best I have eaten in a B&B, good choice of fruit and excellent quality cooked English platter, the sausages being the highlight. This is a highly recommended establishment in a town of mostly mediocre B&Bs.

Room Tip: First floor at the rear, Room 02

Yet another lovely stay in a small, very friendly B&B. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished, lots of unexpected extras. Judy and Steve are very welcoming hosts, with lots of tips for places to visit and info on walks. Breakfast was outstanding and the bed REALLY comfortable. Avery comfortable, value for money B&B, we will be back!!

Room Tip: Top floor has smaller room, sloping ceiling.

This is a lovely little B&B with lovely owners. Its located on the main road just round the corner from the village shops. I couldn't tell you if there was noise from the main road as we had the back room. The rooms were lovely and clean and provided everything you would require for a few nights away from home. Every morning we had a lovely breakfast, different variations if we required something a little different from the full english. The portions were generous and definately set you up for a day's hiking. Good value for money and I can't think of any reason not to choose this B&B on your visit to Windermere.

Room Tip: If you think road noise would be a problem, then ask for room 2

Stayed 2 nights Aug 2011. Good points - location, cleanliness, modern bedroom presentation, affable lady host, good breakfast and wi fi. Worth comment - main road position for smallish front bedroom (noise), thin internal walls (more noise), small breakfast room a little austere. However good value for money, great base for exploring the Southern Lakes, and not too far from the M6.
