Down the hill our local farmers Steve, Barbara & Michael Dunning, at Raisgill Hall, think that holiday makers are a real benefit to the local economy & offer terrific produce from their own Beef herds & sheep flocks &, in lambing time, are delighted to show kids & families the new lambs

Security deposits are returnable within 10 days of the end of a rental.

The Cumbria/Lake District

Before the creation of the M6 this was a remote region, not easy to get to, but today to the left and right of the M6 is beautiful, empty faming land, fantastic views & friendly local people.

Cumbria, at the very north of England, is amongst its most beautiful regions.

The Lake District National Park has long been celebrated for its mirror lakes, craggy peaks, holiday cottages and country houses.


Orton is a living village, with school, Hotel/Pub...The George Hotel,... Post Office & Shop which sells most things holidaymakers want, a Tea Room. Church & a local Chocalatierre chocolate Factory.

Located on the path of the famous Coasat to Coast route, it is popular with walkers partculaly in the summer months. Every fourth Saturday, there is the famous Orton Farmers Market.
