Overview

Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

A stunning display of contemporary interior design within a magnificent Victorian residence, a stay at the Orrest House is a truly unique opportunity for 14 incredibly lucky guests!

You will enter this grand statement property via a set of Victorian steps out front and will be welcomed into the entrance hall which leads into two separate reception rooms. From the outset you can sense the sophistication and unique quality of this enormous property. On this ground floor there are the first two living rooms, the main one enjoys four large sofas in front of the woodburning stove and TV, and the smaller one is a perfect TV lounge. Throughout both rooms the décor is chic, with a boutique feel thanks to the quirky furniture set against a mostly monochrome palette, with vibrant splashes of dazzling colour!

On the lower level you will find the spectacular modern kitchen, complete with a central island and huge cooker ideal for getting the whole group involved with meal prep and rustling up something of a feast! A large fridge/freezer with ice dispenser and a Quooker boil tap for instant boiling water will make daily life a breeze. From the kitchen you can directly access the conservatory and terraced patio areas, and this large set of glass doors and huge windows create a lovely warm atmosphere through the kitchen. A formal dining area sits alongside the kitchen. On this floor you will also find a cosier living room with a comfy sofa in front of the TV.

The first of the seven exquisite bedrooms can be found on this lower level, alongside the fabulous kitchen/dining room and the den. This makes it the ideal room for the night owls who like to stay up late, or for young children so you can easily nip in and keep an eye on them in the evenings. In total there are five rooms with king-size beds, one of which is a four-poster bed, and two rooms, including the aforementioned room, with a choice between a super-king size bed or two single beds. This flexibility ensures groups of all shapes and sizes can comfortably make Orrest House their home! Each of the seven rooms is accompanied by a luxurious bathroom, all of which have a bath, shower and delightful fluffy towels!

Out in your garden you can enjoy a fabulous patio, complete with a comfortable array of furniture in which you can kick back and enjoy the fine weather. A barbeque here provides the perfect opportunity for a relaxing day in the sunshine, alfresco dining, chatting and soaking up the wonderful rural ambience.

You’re just a five-minute stroll away from the bustling village of Windermere, with tons of restaurants, cafes and traditional country pubs. Access to Windemere Lake is also only a few minutes' stroll from the village centre at Bowness Bay, where you can hire a boat or take a cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises which depart regularly to both Ambleside and Lakeside.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • There are two bedrooms that offer a choice between a super-king-size bed or two single beds, joined by a zip-link for maximum comfort. Please let us know how you would like these rooms to be set-up
  • The house is set over four floors and there is no lift making it less suited to those with mobility issues

Orrest House is nestled just moments away from Windermere village, with its many quaint cafes, traditional pubs and fantastic restaurants to enjoy, as well as outdoors shops and large supermarkets for your convenience. Access to Windemere Lake is also only a few minutes' stroll from the village centre at Bowness Bay, where you can hire a boat or take a cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises which depart regularly to both Ambleside and Lakeside.

Windermere is England's largest lake, at 10.5 miles long and 219 feet at its deepest point! And unsurprisingly is one of the most famous and popular areas in the whole of the Lake District, with unrivalled hiking, cycling and water-sports on offer, not to mention attractions including crazy golf, climbing, hot air ballooning and orienteering! It is a quaint and lively town with plenty of local shops, a Booths supermarket and the flagship store for Lakeland.

The slightly larger town of Bowness-on-Windermere is also just 2 minutes away and offers an Information Centre with plenty of useful tips for visitors, as well as a vibrant hub of activity around Bowness Bay, where you can even hire rowing boats.

Something of a mecca for cyclists (bikes can be hired just seconds from the house!), walkers and water-sports enthusiasts, the landscapes awaiting you have to be seen to be believed! Leave the car behind and lose yourself in the fresh air! For the true adventurers, unbeatable skiing, climbing and mountain-biking can be found throughout the Park, while more relaxing pursuits including boat hire and golf can be found a stone’s throw away.

Nearby attractions including the Lakes Aquarium, with the UK's largest collection of freshwater fish, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where you can enjoy a 3.5-mile steam locomotive trip into the Leven Valley and the delightful World of Beatrix Potter, where the fabulous animals of Beatrix Potter's tales are brought to life in three dimensions! All make for a great day out for all ages and can easily be combined for those short on time thanks to their proximity.

The Lake District is England's largest National Park, with more than 3100km of rights of way, you can walk, cycle and ride yourself silly through this enchanting valley as you marvel at some of the world’s best scenery! Adventure courses, boat hire, all kinds of water-sports and much more ensure you can take the Lakes at your own pace, be that racing down the mountains on a bike, fell-running up them or gliding through them on a Launch, the possibilities are endless!

  • Wonderful

    Posted by Gowers Family on 27/05/2019

    We had a wonderful holiday, made perfect by the weather. Orrest House is a beautiful house, full of character. We have absolutely no complaint or grumbles - everything was to our liking! Many thanks.

  • Would love to return!

    Posted by Gardiner Family on 20/05/2019

    We arrived in the rain to spend the rest of the week in sunshine, one getting a lovely tan!! The house was very comfortable and the house was so large you had ring to find each other. Bedrooms were true to photographs with white fluffy towels, hot roomy showers and great baths enjoyed by all. As there were 4 generations, and each one enjoyed a space in the house. Thank you for the welcome basket, very unexpected. Would love to return again.
