lovely friendly owner, delightful room! comfy bed and a great choice for breakfast. breakfast was a delight worth getting up for.
slightly noisy road but this didn't bother us, its very quiet by bedtime anyway.
My partner and I stayed at the cottage in August 2014 and found it to be a great little place. david (the owner) was very laid back and friendly and cooks a mean breakfast! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We stayed in room 3 which is the attic room. Headspace is limited on one side so taller people may struggle. I am 5'9" and had to be careful !
Ideal to visit Windermere, half an hour walking distance down to Bowness-on-Windermere. David is a very gentle owner, breakfast is very good.
Building/rooms pretty small (but with noticeable care and attention). Breakfast time 8.30-9 is quite short. Price is quite high (being Windermere is a quite popular tourist destination).
Location is good for local buses and the train station. Many local pubs or restaurants within easy walk. Host David could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Breakfast are a bit different to the norm and are absolutely delicious!
Parking is not always that easy right near the property, gets better after about 5oclock.
Neat, clean, fairly comfortable. Nice location just out of busy high street but a short stroll to shops and attractions. David our host very accommodating and welcoming.
Tiny room, barely enough space to store two medium sized suitcases. Bathroom needs some small renovations.
The room was comfortable and homely, the breakfast was excellent and the owners Laura and David were welcoming and helpful. Would definitely come again.
everything was good
The rooms, location and service were excellent.
The walls are thin and we had a very energetic, and vocal, couple next door!
Church St is located on the A591 with a lot of traffic noise,so that if you opened your window the noise of the traffic especially on a wet road is unbearable
Very comfortable beds. Friendly owner. Good location
Location, staff, breakfast
Room too tiny
Very quiet and peacful nights sleep. The included breakfast would have been enough to make the stay perfect just on its own but the staff were very friendly and down to earth. Location wise there was alot to do and within 2 minutes walk of local eating establishments for evening meal. Definately recommend to anybody.
Only thing was the weather, pouring down from about 5 minutes after arrival...lol
The location was fantastic. The breakfast was brilliant. The friendliness was very much appreciated. A great trip.
A delightfully friendly atmosphere with extremely helpful owners. Superb breakfast. A lovely two day break in Widermere. Would not hesitate to revisit Orrest Cottage and to recommend it.
Lovely room, friendly, kindly, nice smile, good foods, wifi was high, we could get need all.
I can not find.
A little bit noisy.
Lovely breakfasts cooked by David not just same as usual. Handy to bus station.
the rooms suited us perfect, they where close to the centre but easy parking outside, clean, welcoming and the communications I had with the owner where first class, we will be back
The breakfast was excellent, a good selection of meals and every bit of it was very taste.
Bathroom was a little bit on the small side.
In the centre of the town and a fantastic breakfast. The owner was a great host.
Ideal location and one block from the bus and train station. Lovely wee cottage, great staff and fantastic breakfast. They offer way more than the typical booked breakfast which is a nice touch.
Perfect location if you're visiting the Lakes without a car as it is 5 minutes walk to rail and bus station. Make sure to request the top floor which has a bonus room plus second bathroom. David cooked the most unique breakfast we had in our 2 weeks in England and was extremely helpful in sightseeing. Highly recommended!
We would recommend Or rest Cottage to anyone - it was warm, clean and welcoming and the owners were so friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable and access easy. Breakfast was to die for and attention to detail and personal service was second to none.
We just wondered whether on a Sunday the owners might consider extending the breakfast times by an hour to allow a little bit of a Sunday lie-in!!
Lovely cottage extremely well presented, friendly people and great place to stay. Breakfast was delicious with a great choice of different dishes on the menu. Will definitely go back for another visit.
