“great viewing point in Windemere....”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Orrest Hill is both easy to find and easy to climb - 20 minutes. We headed for Booths in Windemere bought a packed lunch and then made the walk up Orrest Head. It has stunning views and little benches for you to have your lunch. Booths has 2 hours on the car park and so it is easy to eat your lunch and then climb back down and take a drive somewhere else.

Well worth the little walk up the hill to the top! Beautiful view of Lake Windermere and all the mountains on the horizon.

“great views through an easy walk”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Park at the windermere hotel, take the left path up to the top through the beauty of nature. 20-30 min walk. When you get to the top just enjoy what you can see

“Orrest Head”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

A short and relatively steep walk, great views from the top, great place for a family picnic, although I would imagine that it is packed when the weather is nice.
