Prior to our stay, I had a few queries and David was always responsive. Check-in was seamless and our bedroom was cozy, exactly like what was shown on the website. We did have to somehow manage 2 large luggage in the room but that was only a slight inconvenience. You get to choose your breakfast from a list, which David...

I booked the B & B through late rooms at a great and affordable rate allowing me to visit my sister who lives in Windermere but doesn't have the room for 2 more. Before we had even left home I received a curtsy text from the owners , then another explaining how to let ourselves into the accommodation. On arrival...

The cottage is small and cosy. Breakfasts excellent and set you up for the day. Convenient for Windermere and easy to get elsewhere by car, bus or train. We had a wonderful time whilst there and will try and get back next year.

We stayed for two nights in September, when we arrived we were welcomed by a small tub of jelly beans which went down well after our long drive. The room itself was very nicely decorated and well kept. We were in room 3 which had its own living room next door, a nice touch, not that we used it apart...

We really enjoyed our honeymoon at Orrest. It was perfect for us. Ideal location with brilliant links to Bowness, Ambleside and Kendle. The breakfasts were lovely as was the manager. Was gutted to leave!

This B&B is so close to the rail way station. And the room is sooo lovely, tidy, adorable, just feel like home. The radiator and shower are powerful. Moreover, there are numerous choices for breakfast. Th host is very nice as well. I'll recommend this B&B to my friends.

I had a lovely time here. David made me feel so welcome and was really easy to talk to. My room (2) was so cozy. The little touches were really lovely and made me feel very welcome. The set up for breakfast was lovely. I can't recommend this place enough, and when I come back to Windermere I won't even...

We visited for my birthday and only stayed the night. Very easy to find, fantastic location and easy access to the room on arrival (secure key box). We stayed in room 3 which of course as the other reviews state, is the largest area of the cottage due to the separate TV/DVD room and the extra shower room. However this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
David & Laura would like to invite you to stay with them in their cozy three-story 19th-century Lakeland Cottage situated in the town of Windermere, in the beautiful English Lake District. Orrest Cottage has been refurbished to give a contemporary feel and atmosphere. There are three comfortable en-suite rooms, each able to accommodate two adults. Wake up and look forward to a delicious Lakeland breakfast. To boost your appetite there is lots of fresh Lake District air and certainly plenty of local walks and many starting from just outside the front door. Across the road is the start of the Orrest Head walk, made famous by Lakeland author Alfred Wainwright, it offers you some of the most stunning views over the Lake District fells. We are ideally located just 200m, if you're walking, from either Windermere railway station or the main bus stop at Windermere Tourist Information and we're just the same distance from the centre of town. For your convenience we are Wi Fi enabled, and can offer you flexible check–in times to suit your needs. Check-out is by 10am. ... more   less
