    Orrest Head Cottage sleeping up to 5 guests

    Detached cottage located in the grounds of Orrest Head House with easy access to one of the finest short walks in the Lake District, Orrest Head. S81986 is a detached house located in the grounds of Orrest Head House just above Windermere Village. The house is surrounded by National Trust Fields and looks out over a delightful vegetable garden to lake Windermere beyond. For the keen walkers (or even an after dinner stroller) the house backs straight onto the path through Common Woods and up to Orrest Head, one of the finest short walks in the Lake District (according to Alfred Wainwright). Even though the house is in such a rural location it is within a couple of minutes stroll into Windermere Village, with all the restaurants, bars you’d expect and of course Booths Supermarket.

    Patricia – 5 Nov 2018
    "We (two adults, two grandchildren and a dog) enjoyed our Autumn half-term break in the cottage very much. It met all our needs, and the views of lake Windermere were an unexpected bonus."
    Jennifer – 27 Oct 2018
    "We had an amazing time at the cottage and can't find fault at all."
    Mandy – 23 Oct 2018
    "What a fantastic location within easy walking distance on Windermere and Bowness. Property is spotlessly clean with great accommodation all rooms being of a decent size. Brilliant views from the aster bedroom. We had a wonderful break and Will definitely return."

    Kashif – 22 Sep 2018

    Rachael – 15 Sep 2018
    "A lovely, spacious cottage. We really enjoyed our stay and the lovely walk up to Orrest Head. Would recommend and would stay again."
    Christine – 18 Aug 2018
    "Spacious cottage, well equipped, very comfy beds and big lounge. Two bathrooms useful. Room for us all. Excellent position easy walk to Windermere and private parking. Tricky turning our of drive though."
    BARRIE – 15 Aug 2018
    "Perfect for our family of 5 and a dog , the grounds are large that come with the cottage."
    Martha – 24 Jul 2018
    "Great place too stay!"
    Chris – 22 Jul 2018
    "Really nice clean accommodation high standard of decoration and comfort. Again the door closers are too strong, these should be sorted and in the height of summer there is no outdoor umbrella to shelter from the sun. Other than these 2 points I would recommend this accommodation."
    Richard – 21 Jul 2018
    "Negative points Could do with some updating in kitchen, kitchen utensils etc need improving, main bedroom mattress needs renewing.House location fantasticGood value accommodation, overall a good property"
    Kelvin – 24 Jun 2018
    "Not disabled friendly, high step into cottage and extremely strong door closers on all but one internal door. As a former consulting engineer, I know that they have to close, but to the extent where they are difficult to open? No. Most closers have adjustment so that they are reasonable to open and still close adequately"
    Nigel – 9 Jun 2018
    "A great cottage, fantastic views, quiet and has plenty of parking. All within a few minutes walk of Windermere town."
    Fiona – 6 Jun 2018
    "The Cottage was brilliant. It was clean and everything you would need was provided. The views from the master bedroom where lovely. There is a lovely short walk to the top of Orrest Head perfect to watch the sunset over the mountains. It was an easy walk into Windermere village, with shops, restaurants and bars. The couple of the things I would mark the cottage down on was that there is no dishwasher and the internal doors had closers on them which made them really heavy to open but that is just me being picky"
    Simon – 13 May 2018
    "Very good .Front door step needs to be made saferExcellent for parking Fine views.Good for local walking."
