Eden Valley Holiday Cottage in Cumbria
If you are looking for a great value Cumbrian Cottage then you will discover Orton is a superb location for touring the National Parks. Orton is situated just 6 miles from the Lake District and nestled within the border of the Yorkshire Dales directly south of the charming market town of Appleby.
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. The cottage has been beautifully presented throughout and has been designed to cater for all your needs - even down to the courtesy picnic hamper for those summer walks!
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.’
There are so many stunning, hugely rewarding local walks right from the cottage door that you could choose not to venture further afield - but if you do, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, the Howgill Mountain Range and even the Pennines await you!
