“Lovely little B&B”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

I have never stayed in a B&B before so I didn't fully know what to expect but upon arrival Judy made us feel very welcome. She offered loads of advice about nice little walks around the local area and good places to eat. Our room was lovely. We stayed in room 3 which is the attic room and it's gorgeous. Breakfast was superb. On offer there is a full cooked breakfast with whatever you fancy and there's also a good selection of fruit, yogurt and cereal. Vegetarians are well catered for aswell. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orrest cottage and we would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Windermere.

If you are looking for a great little B&B in Windermere, then Orris Cottage is the perfect place to stay. The cottage is cosy and beautifully decorated, our room was very clean and well presented. We were delighted. Judy was very helpful, suggesting restaurants, walks and places to visit etc. The breakfast choices were great, I especially loved the fresh fruit. We would certainly stay there again. Many thanks to Judy & Steve for a great stay.

We stayed at Orrest Cottage for 3 nights.As soon as we got there we were made to feel very welcome. It has a very homely feel. Judy was very helpful giving us information on which walks to do,places to visit etc. The room we had (no.2) was lovely, very cosy and spotless,the bed was very comfy too. Breakfast was outstanding.There was a choice of just about everything and it kept us full for most of the day.
I would recommend Orrest Cottage in an instant.
Thanks again
Andrea & Paul.

Reviewed 29 December 2011

We stayed over Christmas 2011 and received a warm welcome from Judy, the cottage is very easy to find and very nicely appointed. Our room on the first floor was modern and catered for all our requirements. Breakfast had to be on of best I have eaten in a B&B, good choice of fruit and excellent quality cooked English platter, the sausages being the highlight. This is a highly recommended establishment in a town of mostly mediocre B&Bs.

Room Tip: First floor at the rear, Room 02

Yet another lovely stay in a small, very friendly B&B. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished, lots of unexpected extras. Judy and Steve are very welcoming hosts, with lots of tips for places to visit and info on walks. Breakfast was outstanding and the bed REALLY comfortable. Avery comfortable, value for money B&B, we will be back!!

Room Tip: Top floor has smaller room, sloping ceiling.
