The owner, very nice man :-) Breakfast choices were fab I liked the modern room
Bed a little to firm for me
Despite entering property via a prearranged keypad the place was welcoming warm & friendly. We met David in the morning who was very pleasant & gave us tips on current road conditions & was clearly well versed on the local area.
The cottage was a great base for getting out and about and was lovely and cosy to come back to. We stayed in the loft which was lovely, so comfortable, David the owner was really nice and the breakfast was second to none!!
Lovely place, warm welcome and amazing choice of breakfast. Would stay again :)
My partner and I stayed at the Orrest Cottage for 1 night travelling back from Edinburgh. The cottage is very welcoming and easy to access if you are arriving after 1pm (David sent through details to gain access). When we entered there was a cute breakfast area which was well presented. We then went to the 3rd Floor to 'The Loft room 3' which had a double bedroom with ensuite and separate living area with ensuite. It was very cosy and romantic! The breakfast that was included was very nice and the selection was excellent! We will definitely be returning to the lake district and staying at this cottage! Ben
The only thing that could have been better was the water pressure in the shower and that it went hot and cold every now and then but it wasn't an issue.
Orrest bnb is a charming little place with such convenience to transport, banks, information centre and pubs/restaurants we couldn't ask for more. It was my first trip to the lake's and our host was very helpful, comfortable, fantastic shower and that bfast just sold it! Just 20minutes up the hill opposite is orrest head which it worth every penny spent staying here. Couldn't believe how close to such beauty we were... We'll be back again!! :)
Very easy to find and communication from owners regarding booking in and where to park was excellent. Room was lovely and clean and well equipped. Breakfast was outstanding, would be nice to stay for longer next time.
good location near the train station and a few minutes walk from centre, owner very friendly
It was hot, turned the heating down, but it didn't really get colder
Wonderful host who was friendly and helpful. Amazing sleep in a clean warm room and couldn't of asked for better location as was right on bus route and best Train station. All finished off with an awesome breakfast....so much choice.
Wish check out was at 11am.
Location and value for money,
location is easy to reach from train station,the owner contact me via email how to get into room,clean room,delicious English breakfast.
Very cute. Lovely owners. Really nice finishing touches. Very nice breakfast.
The check out time
Nobody there to greet us, didn't see the owner until breakfast. Room on main road, no double glazing so noisy.
Even before we arrived communication and contact was excellent to ensure our arrival ran smoothly. During our stay the owners could not have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable including advice on must see attractions etc. We will definitely be returning. Id also like to add how extremely yummy breakfast was! Thank you so much :)
Great location, nice breakfast, very clean and comfortable room. The owners ever feed their own hens to lay eggs for breakfast for guests!
Fantastic location, quiet but right next to Windermere town. Free parking just outside and excellent owners, David was brilliant. Gorgeous homemade breakfast from a great selection and lovely modern rooms.
Sloped room and dated bathroom but only as the cottage is beautiful.
- Friendly owner - Attractive room - Great tasting breakfast and good choice - Comfortable bed - Good strong shower
A walk to Orrest Head before breakfast.
