As well as the monthly farmers market, Orton is the home of Kennedy's Fine Chocolates (www.kennedys-chocolates.co.uk) You can watch the hand-made production; have coffee, cake and homemade ice cream in the coffee shop.  Have your own chocolate selection made up into a presentation box to take home or send to a friend.

 

Also, for more markets like ours in the area contact Made In Cumbria for other excellent producers and events.

For walkers:


"The Howgill Fells are particularly distinctive. They are sleek and smooth, looking, at a distance, like velvet curtains in sunlight, like silken drapes at sunset; they are steep sided but gently domed, and beautiful in a way that few hilly areas are. Their soaring and sweeping lines are not interrupted by walls or fences, giving a splendid upland expanse of 'free range walking'" (A.W.Wainwright) You can buy your ordnance survey maps on-line from The Westmorland Gazette (www.shoppersworld.co.uk)

A walkers paradise
Family Walks

Eden Ostrich World, Rheged Discovery Centre, and a host of other family attractions are within 15-mile radius of Orton. For full details of things to see and do in the area visit the official Eden website or Cumbria Tourist Board (www.cumbria-the-lake-district.co.uk).

Orton village won the Cumbria Countryside Award in 2003 and was named Cumbria's Village of the Year in 2004 Not bad for a village of 261 folk!

The scenery is outstanding: Orton lies at the foot of Orton Scar, which is one of the few remaining limestone plateaux in the country, and the Howgill Fells - a distinctive cluster of hills that marks the boundary between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. There is plenty to see and do in the village and surrounding area.
