Laurel Cottage to Orrest Head

Turn left out Laurel cottage and walk to the junction.

Turn right onto Woodland road then immediate left onto Broad street then walk to the end of the road.

Turn right onto Crescent road then walk through the village centre until you reach the Queens Pub, follow the road to the right and walk to the top of the hill.

On the other side of the road you will see a large hotel called “Windermere Hotel”. To the left of this there is a marked footpath leading to Orrest head view point. Take the footpath,  you will immediately see a track to the left, ignore this and continue uphill. Follow the track until you reach a wall, turn right here and continue up the hill until you reach a gate. Go through the gate and climb to the summit.
