Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Penrith - Nell Gwyn Cottage at Orton Hall

2 bedroom cottage (sleeps 4) within a wing of elegant Orton Hall

Nell Gwyn Cottage is located in a wing of Orton Hall, a Jacobean Mansion in Orton, Cumbria. It is approached via an automatic gate along a tree lined drive in seven acres of private grounds. It is a couple of minutes from the village and is conveniently located for holiday activities in the Lakes, the Dales and the Eden Valley, whilst also being easy of access via the M6 motoway or the trans Pennine A66 route.

Nell Gwyn has been renovated to a high specification and enlarged to form a well proportioned dwelling in which the charm of an old cottage blends with modern facilities. It has two large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable and spacious lounge with TV, VCR, DVD and CD Stereo System, a dining hall and a fully fitted traditional kitchen with oak units, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, ceramic hob and microwave oven. The cottage offers a secluded holiday location which is nevertheless close to village amenities and convenient of access being just minutes from the M6 motorway. Whether you are looking for an active holiday or just a quiet place to unwind, Nell Gwyn is the perfect base, offering easy access to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Eden Valley.

Orton Hall is a grade II listed mansion dating from the 1660's with additions made in the late 19th century.

It is approached along a private drive through well established grounds of about seven acres, in which there are mature trees, extensive lawns and plenty of space to relax. Facilities for communal use include an elegant oak panelled great hall with pool table and piano, a coin op laundry and storage space suitable for bicycles.

Described by A W Wainwright as "one of Westmorland's loveliest villages" Orton gained the Cumbria Best of Countryside Award in 2002 and Cumbria Village of the Year 2004. There is a shop cum post office, a pub which serves meals, and two tearooms, one listed in the Les Routiers guide. For those with a sweet tooth, a further attraction will be Kennedy's hand made chocolate factory, with its associated shop. Orton is also a popular stop off point for Coast to Coast walkers.

Orton boasts one of the original Farmers Markets featuring produce from local farmers and growers. This is a regular sell out event, taking place on the second Saturday of each month.

Well equipped, smart cottage in idyllic setting

  • 5 out of 5
We had an exceptional week in this beautiful cottage, the perfect get-away to recharge your batteries. The gardens gave the children space for hide and seek, the snooker table was great fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage, it was clean, had everything we needed and more, a really special find.

A well apppointed cottage in a perfect setting.

  • 5 out of 5
This two bedroomed cottage has all the modern conveniences you need in a beutiful village well located for the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales and North Pennines. A good selection of eating places nearby if you don't want to cook and, if you are lucky like we were, wall to wall sunshine for the whole week!

Excellent stay at Nell Gwyn cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Nell Gwyn is an excellent cottage; clean, accessible and located in scenic grounds. We very much enjoyed our stay and recommend this cottage to those visiting either/ or of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

The owner provided detailed instructions as to how to access and use the cottage, was prompt responding to our queries and provided a range of insightful tourist pamphlets for our use in the cottage.

For those looking who enjoy good food we recommend Appelby Manor which is a short (12 miles) drive from the cottage. The Ullswater Steamer is worth visiting and more tranquil than the competition on Lake Windermere.

The cottage represents excellent value for money and a tranquil location for those who like escaping to the countryside.

A cosy hideaway far from the madding crowd

  • 5 out of 5
We found that this cottage far exceeded our expectations and I must say that the photographs do not fully do justice to its size or tasteful presentation. There is a delightful ambience to the property which seems to impart the idea that you should relax and enjoy the scenery. Everything had been meticulously cleaned prior to our arrival. The compact kitchen is very well equipped and there is no need to bring anything but food. The upstairs bedroom has a bright airy feel with great views across to the hills. The downstairs bedroom is more functional. The setting is superb with large grounds to the front and walks starting from the rear of the property. The living room is comfortable and has a vast window looking out across the front lawn.
Although there were other families staying at the hall we never heard them and only occasionally glimpsed people as they came in from their cars. As someone who enjoys a good nights sleep I can highly recommend the cottage, it is silent at night and the bed is very comfortable.
The village of Orton is very small but it does have the key requisites of a good friendly local pub which serves good food at a reasonable price, a tea shop which doubles up as the local chocolatier and a post office which sells essential groceries.
I am almost hesitant to submit this review as I do plan a return visit and wouldn't want it to be booked!

Nell Gwyn offers a convenient central base for a variety of activities. For walkers, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales are just a short drive away along good roads. More locally, there are good walks direct from the cottage, while to the south, the nearby Howgill Fells offer quiet days out with panoramic views of the Pennines, the Dales and the Lakeland Fells. The quiet local lanes also offer good possibilities for cyclists, while golf is available at nearby Appleby and Ravenstonedale.

For the less energetic, there are countless sightseeing opportunities and old market towns to visit. The spectacular Settle-Carlisle railway runs through the area and there are regular boat trips on nearby Ullswater and Windermere.

Serious shoppers will enjoy Kendal, with its variety of local shops and markets and the Orton Farmers Market helps you take the tastes of Cumbria home with you.
