I have an Orcon branded router which I use as my main router and for VOIP. I would like to use my previous router TP-Link TD-W8960N on the lower level of my house as I get poor coverage in the far corners.

Can I use the TP-Link as an access point? I read that I may need to connect the 2 routers via a physical ethernet cable which I don't have access to downstairs. I have also read about Wireless Bridging on the TP-Link however it looks as if this may only work between 2 TP-Link branded devices.

Is anyone able to help me out?

Wireless bridging is very unreliable between different brands. If you can't run a cable have a look at Homeplug/Powerline (Ethernet over Power) adapters eg:
