Wonderful location, excellent facilities, lovelly decor and one of the best breakfasts possible. David was extremely curtious, very helpful when i contacted him explaining the parking of our car and advising us where to travel around this stunning area. Thank you David for your hospitality.
I would highly recommend guesting at the Orrest Cottage :-))

This B&B is outstanding, I have stayed in 5 star hotels where the breakfast isn't anywhere near as good as you get here. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner. I can honestly say this is the best B&B i have ever stayed in, the rooms were immaculate and windermere town is literally around the corner (1 min walk). We got this at an amazing price as well considering it was a sat night. A very pleasant, friendly B & B, would definitely stay here again!

We recently stayed at Orrest cottage for a short break and we loved it. The house is well decorated and is very clean. The owners were brilliant, from making us excellent home cooked breakfasts on both mornings, to advising us where the best walks are in the area. You have an in house Lake District guide as your host. The location in Windermere is good, close to the centre. The home made flap jack on arrival was tasty and a nice treat. Highly recommended.

Loved the decor, the lovely little lounge area and the nice comfy bed and pillows. Lots of nice little touches including a good dvd collection, toiletries, nice breakfast area and a great choice of breakfasts. My husband and i are quite tall so found the bathroom and the bedroom a little on the small side, the shower particularly was a bit of a squeeze! we also got a lot of traffic noise from the busy road outside but we did have the window open all night as it was a very warm evening. It's a bit of a walk into the town but there are quite a few shops and pubs and bars very nearby, and just round the corner we found a fab cocktail bar called the lighthouse. over all a pleasant place to stay, particularly enjoyed the breakfast and loved the fact that they had home made breads and granola.

Room Tip: room three is on the third floor and has a little living area with a tv, and en suite, not sure if t...

The Orrest Cottage B & B is a cosy, comfortable & very friendly place to stay. They provide an excellent breakfast with various choices other than a full English. However the personally cooked Hearty Cumbrian Breakfast makes for a great start to the day!
