Lovely house and beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the property, the house was stunning and very well equipped had everything we needed for our 3 night break. We loved the view from the property absolutely stunning. Easy access to the heart of the lakes. Jennifer and Howard came over to say hello and left some cake for us which was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend the property to friends and family and we would definitely stay again.

Good base for exploring with some lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on a glorious sunny day, though sadly the weather didn't hold out for our week. However, there was plenty close by to keep us occupied despite the rain - Sizergh Castle the closest choice. Actually finding the property was a little tricky as the grass at the top of the track had grown over the name sign!

The property suited our needs (two adults) well. The kitchen was light and airy and the cooker worked well (very quick hob). There was a bit of a random selection of pots and pans, but enough to be useful, and plenty of utensils. Dishwasher was good to have, though better to put it on before heading out for the day as the open-plan nature of the property meant it was fairly noisy to have on at night. Bring all cooking basics as only salt & pepper provided (supermarkets in Kendal not far away). The seating and dining area was comfortable and the glass doors look over to beautiful rolling hills, and there's plenty of birds to watch in the garden. Bathroom (shower, loo, sink) was compact but fine.

Upstairs the bed was comfy (duvet a bit warmer than we needed) and nice to have another seating area and view. The stairs quite frankly scared the life out of me! I've never come across paddle stairs before, and hope not to again. You really have to pay attention to what you're doing!

Over all the property was modern and nice, clean and simple, and in a good location to explore the Lake District from.

Beautiful,cosy well equipped little hide away.

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous little hide away!! We stayed at Orchard Nook for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The place is small but very well thought out, spotlessly clean and comfortable. We wanted peace and quiet which we got but kendal was only minutes away and had everything. We can't wait to return, thanks Howard and Jenifer for a fabulous stay.

Cosy, modern feel. Lovely views, easy access to the countryside. Well equipped and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very helpful owners who popped by on our first day to offer advise on the local area.

Easy access to the property, key safe so we could arrive and settle in. Easy parking in a garage.

Property is exactly what it looks like online- a snug, cosy, comfortable place to stay. Well equipped in the kitchen as well as plenty of DVDs to watch (a good mix of films).

Nice bathroom, kitchen and living facilities.

Very impressed all round. Would definitely recommend it to a friend and we would love to come again

Clean and well presented accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Light filled accommodation with beautiful scenery, viewable from the lounge and bedroom velux windows. A bonus was being able to sit outside with a cuppa and soak up the countryside. Also having a DVD collection to hand with quite recently issued films was a thoughtful touch.

Cons: The paddle stairs, whilst a novelty, took a bit of getting used to and aren't the easiest medium to climb whilst carrying anything. The biggest 'gripes' for us, though small, were that an oven glove wasn't supplied, which surprised me, especially after reading a previous reviewers comments. Also, we needed to boil water for shaving and washing up as the tap water wasn't very hot.

However, all in all, a very pleasant setting for a couple, with close access to Kendal and southern lakes.
