Orrest Head House is a truly special house in a country location yet moments from the hustle and bustle of Windermere Village. Dating back to 1672 the building has a pletora historical features, tastefully blended in with chic wallcoverings, tasteful fabrics and cool furnishings.

Ground Floor

The ground floor features a designer kitchen with gloss flint grey units under granite worksurfaces, a central island with sunken prep sink, separate washing area with double draining sink and a lovely breakfast table seating 12 on bench style seats. This really is a chef’s paradise. The appliances include a 7 ring burner, twin fan oven range cooker, 2 American style fridge freezers, one with ice-maker and water fountain, 48 bottle wine cooler, microwave and dishwasher. Everything you need to cater for the extended party.

The majestic dining room has a square table, which seats 16 people (18 at a squeeze). The lounge has 3 of the biggest leather Chesterfields you’ll have ever come across, again seating 16. The room also has a hifi with iPod dock and a large flat screen TV. Filled with light from 2 lovely windows and patio doors, which open onto the sun terrace. This room is a fabulous place to unwind. Perhaps our most unique feature is Josiah Brown’s, our bar. Named after one of the original owners of Orrest Head House who was a local philathropist, this room gives pleasure by the glass, quart or gallon. It’s the perfect party room and is there to make your celebration even more special.
