This outstanding end-terrace cottage is just off the village square in the pretty village of Orton and has been lovingly renovated to provide first class accommodation in an unusual 'upside-down' layout. The modern styling and furnishings combine with the original features to create a property that is full of character. The open-plan sitting area features a wood-burning stove set between window seats and a plasma screen television whilst the dining area is minimalist yet cosy. The cottage is well placed for all local amenities and is situated in the heart of this lovely area of the Lake District.
Set in a secluded position in the Lake District National Park is the charming village of Orton. Along with its better-known neighbours of Kendal, Sedbergh and Appleby-in-Westmorland, the village 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 a local pub serving good food, a post office/shop, tea-rooms and the famous handmade chocolate shop and tea-room. A tranquil village green surrounded by 17th and 18th Century cottages adds to its charm and there is a farmer’s market in the village square on the second Saturday of every month. Take a short drive and discover the unspoilt lake of Haweswater - home to the only pair of nesting Golden Eagles in England, or take advantage of the excellent road links to the Lake District, the Eden Valley and the Yorkshire Dales.
