Orton All Saints Nov 13 LROrton Village

Orton is located on the southern edge of Orton Village in Cumbria. Many of the village houses were built in the 18th century and have remained virtually unaltered in external appearance since. A magnificent sixteenth century church stands guard over the village. The pace of life is relaxed and offers a truly peaceful and friendly country holiday.

Alfred Wainwright, in his book ‘Westmorland’s Heritage’, writes:

“Orton is one of the loveliest of Westmorland’s villages, a pretty rural settlement built around a central green with two streams crossed by many footbridges and having numerous venerable buildings and a fine church on a hill overlooking tranquil countryside.”

Orton Village also features a pub, tea rooms, shop with post office and the renowned Kennedy’s Chocolate Factory.

Orton-Farmers-Market

Orton Village hosts the nationally acclaimed Orton Farmer’s Market every second Saturday of the month. Orton was the National Farmer’s Market of the Year 2005 and the first accredited farmer’s market in Britain.

The immediate area offers some of the best countryside in England. Orton is set within a triangle formed by the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Eden Valley, all of which can be reached via quiet country roads and are no more than 20 minutes drive away.

Guest comments

“This was a brilliant find and even better as we got a deal. The apartment was in a great location for touring the lakes and surrounding area. It was extremely well equipped, the furniture was in keeping with the house and the oak panelling throughout was superb –  wished the walls could talk!! The grounds were also beautifully kept. Would go back again.” Christine Wells – Market Harborough
