This cosy cottage is an ideal self catering base. The small kitchen is well equipped (albeit the fridge/freezer is in the cupboard under the stairs off the lounge, a minor inconvenience). The lounge/dining area has a comfy sofa and easy chairs, plus a dining table and chairs. There is digital tv, with dvd, and a cd/radio player, plus good wifi,...

Myself, my mum and auntie stayed in South Cottage in May this year and it exceeded our expectations. It was the cosiest cottage to return to after a day walking the Orton Scar or visiting Hill Top and Lake Windermere. We chose Orton cottage initially because it was more reasonable than staying right in the Lake District however I would...

About the neighborhood
Orton village has a Post Office with a newsagents - where you can buy food, logs for the fire, newspapers, sweets etc.. Kennedy’s Chocolate factory is a definite must-see and only a few steps from the cottage door. As well as a large cafe, there are lots of lovely gift-ideas, sculptured chocolates and novelty items. The Farmers market is on the 2nd Saturday of every month and has a whole host of interesting foods, cheeses and wine. The smell of hot dogs and bacon baps wafts across to the cottage as the market is situated a few yards away! The George Hotel is the lovely, welcoming village pub - a popular stop over for people doing Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk – with a large range of ales, food, regular activities and pub quizzes etc.
