We believe that whether you are an avid walker, an energetic cyclist, a family seeking a touring holiday or a writer relishing the opportunity for a calm, peaceful break, your stay in South Cottage is one you are unlikely to forget.

Right in the heart of the village, South Cottage has Orton’s hidden treasures within a few steps of the front door. From the popular village pub with regular quizzes and events, the famous Kennedy’s Chocolate Factory (we dare you not to venture in!), the village post office and stores with well-stocked shelves and, for real foodies, the monthly Farmers Market, there really is something for everyone. On market morning, open the windows of the cottage and a waft of hot dogs, chestnuts and seasonal offerings fill the air.

Orton is a favourite location for walkers, and forms part of Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk. Wainwright himself described Orton as ‘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.’ With stunning local walks including the majestic Howgill Fells and Orton Scar, what will delight the walker, cyclist and driver alike is the wide range of scenery that surrounds the village. From picture-postcard charm, barren and dramatic expanses of limestone terrain to the gentle rolling hills and sheep grazing innocently by the roadside, Orton is truly blessed with a variety of landscapes. Despite all of this, Orton revels in its relatively undiscovered existence and keeps its beauty a secret – away from the hustle and bustle of the central lakes crowds.

Further details

Please note that access to the double bed in the master is only from one side, so whilst all our guests have found that very cosy and inviting, it is most suitable for the nimble. Sadly, dogs are not allowed off the lead on the premises as the garden is not fully enclosed and is situated in a communal area. The front garden is lovely and only for the house, but it is not fenced, so it is unsuitable for dogs. However, just across the road from the cottage is a path and recreation ground - ideal for a quick tinkle late at night!

Further details indoors

Ample hanging and floor space for muddy boots (and paws), coats and rucksacks. A stylish and separate kitchen, with views across the village to the pub! Very well equipped - even a slow cooker perfect to come home to after a long, exhausting walk. Living room with wooden effect flooring throughout, a sofa, two modern arm chairs, cupboard housing a fridge/freezer, a gorgeous table with seating for four, and the all important open fire. Lovely inviting hallway with feature shelving, housing a wide range of literature. Lots of books on the local area, guided walks and maps for you to use during your stay. Plenty of board games and DVDs (from family ones to thrillers) for those rainy days or cosy evenings. In the corner of the hallway is the doggie corner – ideal location for a pet basket. Attractive and quirky bathroom with lovely deep bath and NEW FOR 2017 - powerful electric shower with instant heat. Additional hand-held mixer tap over bath. Plenty of storage for toiletries. Master Bedroom - small but super cosy and stylish! Inheriting a slightly awkward angle makes furnishing the bedrooms difficult, but we think the mixture of solid oak chest of drawers, matching bedside table and double bed with drawer storage underneath, plus a deep built in wardrobe with rail hanging hopefully more than make up for the lack of space! Bright and airy second bedroom with plenty of storage - a built in cupboard with hanging space, under drawers in the single bed, a wicker rack of drawers and bedside table.

Further details outdoors

A stone outbuilding provides ample space for you to stow away your bikes. The cottage also comes with a lovely rear patch of garden and a table with a bench. Ideal for soaking up the evening sunlight and having a glass of wine in the open air (welcome bottle of wine included). There is also a front garden which is less private but provides a view of the village – ideal for being nosey and watching life go by! There is allocated parking for one car, but there is also plenty of on-street parking just outside in the village.

Location description from owner

The England region

Orton is situated just six miles away from the Lake District border and is officially in the Yorkshire Dales and the Eden Valley. The area is famous for lakes and mountains and stunning scenery, and Orton is certainly no exception. Even Scotland is only a half an hour away! There is so much to do in the area, that we are only scratching the surface, but the cottage has a large pack of leaflets for numerous things to do - from walking, horse-riding, golf, cycling, watersports, art galleries, boat cruises, historical houses, family days out. You won’t have enough time to do it all!

Penrith

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.

“South cottage”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

Excellent location, well equipped little cottage Loved the open fire very homely and cosy Was our 2nd visit and would recommend.

Owner's reply: Hi there, thank you for your review - so pleased you had another lovely stay! Glad it was super cosy for you and you made the most of the fire!! Would love to have you to stay again one day :) All the best, Chloe x

“A wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 8 May 2013

The cottage had everything we needed and was comfortable and clean. The WIFI was excellent. Orton is a lovely village to walk in and enjoy the scenic beauty. If you get a chance, try to attend one of the church services at the village church, it made the visit that much more special. We highly recommend South Cottage !

“A lovely, well-equipped cottage in an ideal village”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2013

We really enjoyed our stay in this homely cottage.It is very well equipped, from the kitchen, to games and books, to the maps you need for Orton and the lake district. The village has everything you need, including a chocolate factory! You can walk out of the village, straight onto the fells, with a great view of the howgills and beyond. Lovely!

“A great little cottage”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2013

What more could you ask for! The cottage has everything you could possibly think of needing, it's a little unorthadox in layout but a fab use of space. Location wise the lake district is on your doorstep with great walks starting at the end of the drive. The pub across the road (less than 1 minute away) was so friendly with good food (coeliac friendly!!) and even did takeout. The village shop stocks everything and then some. There were 2 of us and our little border terrier and we all loved it. The only downside to this brilliant little cottage is the double bedroom and the fact that one side of the bed is against a wall - one person does have to be agile and the other prepard to climbed over :-) ! That said we can't wait to re-book for next year. We loved it.

“A perfect escape!”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2012

Lovely cottage, immaculately clean with plenty of utensils in the kitchen. My husband was kept busy making lovely log fires! My teenage daughter was happy discovering scrabble and rope swings over the lake!! The village has the best stocked supplies of any corner shop I have ever seen! The local pub had a fantastic roaring fire and friendly landlord and locals. All this before I even mention the chocolate factory across the road! We will definitely be going back!

“Excellent, well-equipped cottage in a lovely village.”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2012

The cottage was clean and very well organised, located centrally for the village, which had a pub, chocolate factory/tea room and local store. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and although the cottage was central it was very private. There was a real fire for bad weather and a good TV and wi-fi. Also there were loads of lovely local walks from the house. We are looking forward to going again.
