The Details...

For those looking for a large cottage for a family holiday, special occasion, or simply to get away with friends, then Orrest Head House in the Lake District is the perfect option. This luxury property sits on two acres of private grounds and has everything on offer for a getaway to remember.

Sleeping up to 12 guests, the house boasts some superb and spacious social spaces for those staying to enjoy. In the lounge are huge leather Chesterfield sofas seating up to 16 people that sitting in front of the wood burning stove and large flat screen TV. Then there is the dining room, complete with a table that seats up to 18, the ideal spot to enjoy meals prepared in the vast kitchen. This fully equipped space has a seven-ring burner twin oven, dishwasher, two sinks, and an American style fridge/freezer. There's also a utility room with washing machine and dryer.

Meanwhile, those who want to take themselves off for some quiet time can enjoy the snug room complete with a large flat screen TV and DVD player. Orrest Head House also has its own bar room, named after one of its original owners, Josiah Brown.

There are five individually styled bedrooms that offer great versatility to those staying. The two king size rooms each have a freestanding bath in the bedroom and also an en-suite shower room. The super king room has an en-suite with bath and shower. Finally, there are two bedrooms with three singles, which can be pushed together to make further super king beds. These both have en-suite bathrooms as well. All the pillows and duvets are duck and goose feather for that added touch of luxury.

Outside there is a large patio with outdoor furniture that seats up to 18 people and a barbecue for alfresco dining.

Located in the Lake District, the famous Lake Windermere can be reached within 15 minutes by foot. There is also the walk up to Orrest Head - from which the house takes its name - right on the doorstep and there are many other hiking and cycling routes in this beautiful area. The village of Windermere with its cafes, bars, and independent shops is only 600 metres from the cottage.
