What a great little cottage in a quiet peaceful location which is just what we were looking for after a very hectic few months at home. So relaxing and peaceful that we wished we had booked to stay longer . The welcoming gift of a cake and materials to make drinks was most appreciated. I think we will most certainly consider the cottage again next year sometime.

Beautiful cottage with a very warm welcome from the owners. Left us milk and a wonderful chocolate cake to get us started. View was spectacular.

The cottage was lovely, cosy and warm. The log burner was a great feature. The owner has added some thoughtful touches. We had a wonderful week and will hopefully book again.

This lovely little cottage was a real find in a small village. Location just off the M6, but far enough away not to be bothered by it. Allowed access to all areas of the Lake District, a wonderful location. The locals were very friendly, as were the owners who made us very welcome, nothing was to much trouble for them. We found that the BT hub didn't work but they were in communications with BT for a resolution. We also felt that having to leave at 10am, was a little early but otherwise no other complaints, a truly lovely little place. We would definitely visit again.

Very convenient for all the south and western Lake District. A well stocked shop in the village with friendly pub and really excellent shopping in nearby Milnthorpe - - a superb butchers there!!
December 2012
We had a lovely week's stay in this cottage which was ideal for my wife and I. The cottage was ideally situated for the area around Windermere and nearby Kendal. Furthermore it was clean and tidy and in a quiet area of the village-would certainly recommend if you wanted to visit this part of the Lake Distrct

What a delightful little cottage, with absolutely all the amenities one could wish for, plus a host and hostess who couldn't do enough for us. The welcome cake and drinks were the icing on the cake. Location was fantastic, with so many activities and attractions within minutes of the cottage. Even the trip up to Beatrix Potter's home was not a long drive. Very happy to recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice little bolt hole".

A lovely cosy cottage in quiet location. Had a very well equipped kitchen and was clean throughout.
Mrs Deane

The cottage was peaceful, clean and well equipped. The owners, although living next door, were helpful but not intrusive. The cottage is well placed for all the local attractions, and the pub serves excellent food at all hours, and is family friendly. Should the occasion arise, we would have no hesitation in staying at The Orchard again.
