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...

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...
