Just what was needed for a base for an active weekend. A hot shower, comfortable bed, fine breakfast, somewhere to dry wet footwear. Wifi. Easy parking on site and a central location. I was on my own this time, and was made to feel welcome and at ease.

We only stopped at Orchard Cottage for one night, but would definitely go again. Located in one of my favourite areas of the Lakes within an easy drive of Tarn Hows and Langdale, and close enough to Ambleside and Windermere, but not too close to be troubled by too many tourists. Orchard Cottage is situated in the heart of Coniston... More

We arrived earlier than usual and were warmly received, our room was ready, we could check in and then go out to explore Coniston. This was very generous and we felt most welcome. There is ample parking and Orchard Cottage really couldnt be better placed. The room was spotlessly clean and warm, the shower had loads of hot water. We... More

This B&B oozes charm and character. With only 3 rooms for guests, you feel like you are staying at a friend's house rather than a B&B room. Everything regarding the stay reflects quality.

Thank you for your review, sorry you found the towels scratchy, in the warm weather we dry them outside (friendlier to the environment) rather than in a tumble dryer, then pop them in the dryer for a few minutes to soften off. More
