About the location

ORTON

Kendal 12 miles; Penrith 12 miles; Kirkby Stephen 12 miles; Keswick 25 miles.

The charming old village of Orton sits in a secluded position where the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales meets the eastern fringe of the Lake District National Park. Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the area is surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and beautiful scenery. Above the village sits Orton Scar, a limestone hill, used in days gone by to warn the village of Scottish raiders and popular today with walkers. The village centre has an imposing 16th century church, local pub serving good food, a Post Office/shop and the famous handmade chocolate shop and tea room. A lovely village green surrounded by 17th and 18th Century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmers’ market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month. Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the rest of the Yorkshire Dales.
