We visited South Cottage as a small family and loved it! The cottage is really cosy and cute and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very clean, warm and inviting. We visited Ullswater, Keswick and Windermere during our stay, but also enjoyed...More

About the neighbourhood
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.
Getting around
We do recommend you bring a car to Orton as there is so much to see and do in the wider area, it would be a shame to miss out. That said, there are lots of walks straight from the cottage door, there is a village pub, two cafes, a chocolate shop and a village convenience store, so if you really want to just nestle away for your stay, you can do! There are bus links into the village but they are limited. You can also get trains to Kirkby Stephen, Oxenholme (Kendal) or Appleby and taxi from there to Orton.
Car advised
