Super cute cottage in lovely village location - situated within 6 miles of the Lake District and within the border of the Yorkshire Dales. 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! The cottage comprises a very well-equipped, compact modern kitchen with hob, double oven, washer/dryer, microwave, kettle, toaster ... even a slow cooker, handy for coming back to after a long day's walking! The living area is beautifully quirky with ample dining space at the lovely table under a large window, a cosy open fire, TV with DVD player and free-view Sky channels.

The cottage comprises a very well-equipped, compact modern kitchen with hob, double oven, washer/dryer, microwave, kettle, toaster ... even a slow cooker, handy for coming back to after a long day's walking! The living area is beautifully quirky with ample dining space at the lovely table under a large window, a cosy open fire, TV with DVD player and free-view Sky channels. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a single bedroom - both having plenty of storage space for your clothes and possessions, even though they are cosy and compact! The modern bathroom has a powerful electric shower and a deep, cosy bath. There is also a WC and wash hand basin and lots of space for toiletries. Outside, there is a shed with space for bikes, a garden area - ideal for soaking up the evening sun - and a parking space. 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. More

Interaction with guests
We want you to really love your stay in South Cottage and for those precious moments in your holiday, it's your cottage to enjoy. So, we won't disturb you during your stay - and we don't live in the area either, so you needn't feel watched! You can enjoy complete privacy during your stay. We will only ever ask access if there is any critical maintenance to attend to. We are, however, fully contactable during your stay and have a team of maintenance and generally helpful people should you encounter a problem at all!

Additional amenities & feature info
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 throughout. Living room with wooden effect flooring throughout, a sofa, two modern armchairs, 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 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.

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.
