“Great last minute getaway”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

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 e...

Another fantastic stay at Orrest Cottage..........Everything was again first class and it was good to see David & Laura again. One difference was the breakfast........it has got even better than the last time we stayed! More choice (cant believe that was possible!), and it really sets you up for a good days walking. We cant recommend Orrest Cottage highly enough and we will be going again as soon as we can in 2014. Thanks once again, Fiona & Ian.x

Stayed here for two nights for a mini getaway, was met by David who couldn't have been more welcoming. We stayed in room 3 which was lovely and spacious with two bathrooms and a lounge area. Loved the decor and the homemade flapjacks. Was a lovely touch! Didn't need to bring toiletries as there was a basket which provided shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The breakfast was brilliant and very filling. My partner was impressed with the homemade granola Laura had made. Location was excellent! Right near the train station and a lovely 20 minute walk to windermere lake. Thank you David and Laura for a wonderful stay, cannot recommend this place highly enough, hospitality was fab !
