Cottage Holidays in Orton, Cumbria, England

Ideal for a tranquil cottage break with its location nestled in the Cumbrian countryside is the village of Orton.  Orton has earned a great reputation for itself thanks to its pleasant atmosphere, scenic views and unique attractions, all of which make it a wonderful place to stay on a country cottage holiday as there’s plenty to see and do both in the village and in the surrounding area; it also happens to be very relaxing and peaceful.


About Orton for Cottage Holidays

While in Orton, you simply have to visit Kennedy’s Fine Chocolates, a handmade chocolate shop that sells a variety of enticing luxury chocolates. Another one of the village’s must-see attractions is All Saints Church, which was constructed in the late 12th century and whose tower, now white thanks to its lime rendering, dates back to the 16th century. While strolling through Orton, you’ll realise that many of the cottages are quite historic in appearance and that’s because they were built during the 17th and 18th centuries. If you happen to be here on the second Saturday of the month, you’ll be able to visit the farmers’ market, where over two dozen farmers and craftsmen gather to sell a variety of foods, trinkets, wares and artisan products. Just beyond the village is the Orton Scar, known for its craggy limestone paths and its stunning views.

So if you’re after a relaxing country escape, Orton is a great place to consider. It’s set in a quiet, idyllic location and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the country. There’s plenty to do in the village itself and further afield - while the village is actually in the Yorkshire Dales, it’s also a short drive from the Lake District National Park.  We hope you find the perfect holiday cottage for you in or near to Orton in Cumbria.

Book a Orton cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Cumbria on holiday.
