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.
Wifi didn't work.....
Super comfortable bed! Amazing breakfast. Very close to town centre. DVDs available to borrow.

Its a sweet little place, with all the facilities available, that you would need for a comfortable stay. Owners were charming and the breakfast was wonderful. The attention to details by the owners was fantastic.
It was fresh,modern and extremely comfortable. A very friendly and helpful host. Quality breakfast and service Best B&B we have stayed in since arriving in the UK
Personal service, helpful and well run
There weren't any hand or face towels. Room was also small but cosy.
Everything, there was nothing not to like!

we could hear people in the next room
Services, personal attention, breakfast was excellent , small touches p
Warm friendly atmosphere. Owner very friendly,made you feel at home.

Radiators noisy in the morning...thats all
attentive owner, good choices for breakfast, clean room & location is close to public transport. would recommend it!
Location excellent. Breakfast excellent with little touches to make a difference. Def stay again
Very loud radiators in morning early on. Woke both of us up.
Everything was wonderful. The room was fresh and comfortable, and the breakfast was incredible! Great location and friendly, helpful staff.
Lovely decoration, clean and comfortable room, great location, well-organised check-in. David's breakfast was delicious!!
David, the owner, was very kind. The cottage is spotless and the location is perfect. The breakfast is delicious.
Great location Great breakfast
Walls a little thin!
everything about this place is so typically english nestled in the backdrop of windermere with the station practically next door the room was spotless the breakfast with its traditional milk bottles was so quaint and david the owner was a perfect host
the fact i had to go home i would quite happily move in forever x
This little b&b is by far one of the best I have stayed in,nothing was too much trouble! Orrest cottage is in the perfect central location,will easy access to public transport and beautiful views.The food was perfect,plentiful and delicious!! The owners were so lovely and chatty and the rooms were cosy,well equipped with very very comfy beds. Can't wait to come again :-)
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.
Laura and David, the breakfast and the location is perfect, all in all it is a great wee place, I really do feel bad about the didn't like box but it is a fair critique about our stay, I shall reiterate it is a lovely old cottage with brilliant hosts and a marvellous varied breakfast choice, but the loft bedroom and shower room were just too small for us and we are not huge overweight people I am 6ft 1in and my wife is 5ft 1in and she constantly banged her head on the combed ceiling, I would like to point out that we stayed in room 3 only and Laura and David have another 2 rooms of which any 1 of the 2 would have probably suited us better we booked the room we liked and no blame lies with the Orrest Cottage and we would have no hesitation about staying again but not in the loft room I cannot be fairer with my review and hope the people concerned understand this and absolutely no malice or bad feelings are intended.
It pains me too write this but I feel I must, we booked the loft room No 3 with its own private lounge great if you are young but we are a couple of old fogies we would have loved it when we were younger it would have been a hoot, there is no blame attached to Laura and David at all regarding this matter we knew the room was on the top floor I think the term loft room gives it away no probs with this,the lounge area is fab but we did find the room small and I am afraid the toilet and shower room is strictly for people with a height disadvantage (midget) not pc I know but sadly true, loved the Hosts L& d but not room 3 sorry guys.
Very friendly staff. Feels very homely, and well looked after. Good quality sleep, bed was better than most hotels for the price. Fantastic breakfast, the owners appear to have put a lot of thought into it. Best breakfast I have had in a long time. Lots of leaflets about the local area in the welcome pack and downstairs in the breakfast area. Owners are on hand until 1pm to give information about the local area. This helps so you can enjoy and make the most of the sights in the lakes. Would go back as we didn't do everything we could of done.
Nothing Major, Could hear the other guests when they got up and move downstairs, but it was not a problem.
