Instructions in an A4 folder telling you ALL you need to know from for a satisfying stay are right there in front of you on the bed together with some biscuits, a sign welcoming you by name and plenty tea, coffee, sugar and dried milk, not to mention in the en-suite shower/toilet room a basket full of body/hair care right...

We stayed for one night in the Loft Suite for a Birthday trip to Windermere. Had a great stay, cosy little room with quirky features and modern decor, very comfy and warm. The only suggestion we would have is that both bathrooms could do with a makeover as they don't match the standard of the rest of this lovely little...

We stayed here one night in August. When we arrived, it was a bit early (about 30min) to check in, so we were given keys to the front door of the BB and our room, so we can access to our room without a person who manages the BB when we returned. We were able to leave our luggage. It...

The first thing to point out if anyone is reading this that if you click on this reviewers profile you will see that she basically rates the majority of her stays and experiences in her life as a 1 star which speaks volumes about the validity of her comments. My honest advice would be not to travel as it seems...

Amazing little cottage for families, friends or couples. Near to the supermarket and station. There is a path right outside which leads up to a viewpoint on a hill with breathtaking views. The host is fantastic and even cooks every guest breakfast. Super amazing stay if you're planning to visit the Lake District in the UK and choose to stay...

The location of this B&B was perfect for spending time in the Lakes. Compared with similar B&Bs it was a fantastic price for the area. Rooms are decorated very nicely, the photos don't do Orrest Cottage justice. Breakfast was fantastic, I only wish we had room for more, there was lots of choice on the menu. There was no parking...

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed here, for anyone curious it was the night of the presidential elections and even though it was a bad result imo this B&B made up for it in the morning. Found it a little odd at first that communication was by text and that I didn't meet David (owner) until the morning but the...

Have to say they were all spot on, place was lovely, little personal touches , clean, and the breakfast is fantastic, fresh and well cooked by Dave, also great diverse choice. The room had everything you would need. Great location, just round the...

Sort of an impulse stay as we had some time off work.

Absolutely excellent value for money. Fantastic location, amenities, breakfast & price. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again and/or recommend. You will not find another place in the area that comes even close on quality, let alone price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
David & Laura would like to invite you to stay with them in their cozy three-story 19th-century Lakeland Cottage situated in the town of Windermere, in the beautiful English Lake District. Orrest Cottage has been refurbished to give a contemporary feel and atmosphere. There are three comfortable en-suite rooms, each able to accommodate two adults. Wake up and look forward to a delicious Lakeland breakfast. To boost your appetite there is lots of fresh Lake District air and certainly plenty of local walks and many starting from just outside the front door. Across the road is the start of the Orrest Head walk, made famous by Lakeland author Alfred Wainwright, it offers you some of the most stunning views over the Lake District fells. We are ideally located just 200m, if you're walking, from either Windermere railway station or the main bus stop at Windermere Tourist Information and we're just the same distance from the centre of town. For your convenience we are Wi Fi enabled, and can offer you flexible check–in times to suit your needs. Check-out is by 10am. ... more   less
