We stayed here while a friend had her wedding up the road in Cooling Castle and it was perfect. We had a lovely big bedroom on the ground floor with a nice big bathroom and plenty of hanging and storage space. It was immediately clean and very welcoming. The owners were there to greet us and show us where to...

I stayed at the cottage the night before my wedding. Sue and Kevin are lovely. There was lovely warm scones waiting for us when we arrived and sue made us all a brew. The cottage was spotless and lovely and warm. The breakfast the following morning was very accommodating as they done it for us in two halves so that...

What a joy it was to stay at the Orchard B&B for the night. Kevin and Sue are the friendliest people and nothing is too much trouble for them. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, the breakfast was large portions of well cooked food. Everything on hand that you would want & need. They went above and beyond offering...

The help your self breakfast was "continental". The croissants were stale. Poor standard to say the least. Shower packed up at first attempt to use it. Dead spider on the carpet. Toilet seat loose. I honestly can't recommend this place.

Kevin F, Owner at Orchard Cottage, responded to this review

The gentleman was informed some time prior to arrival that unfortunately both owners of Orchard B&B had to temporarily step away from running the accommodation as my wife had been diagnosed with cancer and I was caring for her full time during her chemotherapy treatment. We had decided to try to honour existing bookings as, for example, the nearest available...

My parents have stayed here several times when they have visited from Cornwall. The proprietors are friendly and very welcoming. The rooms are well decorated and immaculate. You have a lounge area where you can relax and a kitchen fully equipped also. I'd highly recommend.

We stayed at Orchard Cottage prior to our daughters wedding at Cooling Barn. This is a fabulous place to stay and so so friendly. You get the feeling that you have gone from home to home. The rooms are of the highest quality and comfort. If we are ever in the area again then this is the place we would...

A party of six of us stayed overnight at Orchard Cottage whilst attending a wedding at Knowle Country House and what a wonderful find it was. We did not expect the high standard of accommodation and attention to detail. Kevin was so welcoming and showed us around the property when we arrived. The rooms were very clean with lovely bedding...
