Orton is a traditional village with pub serving food and village shop and post office, yet only a short drive from the M6 motorway. The great Alfred Wainwright considered living here at one time stating that it is one of the loveliest of Westmoreland's villages. The famous Kennedy's hand made chocolate factory is based in Orton and has cafe serving the most delicious hot chocolate as well as shop selling their produce. On the second Saturday of every month is the Orton farmer's market renowned as being one of the best in Britain.
Scar View Cottage is ideally situated for both longer and shorter walks. Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk, as featured on TV with Julia Bradbury, passes through the village . Walks from the village lead over Orton Scar limestone fells with lovely ferns and wildlife.
