General Remarks

Description
Farrers Cottage is an appealing three-bedroomed property, traditionally constructed, centrally positioned, and convenient for the village P.O./Store.

The fellwalker's writer, Alfred Wainwright, at one time considered living in Orton, and it was undoubtedly one of his favoured villages. In his book, "Westmorland's Heritage", he writes:

"Orton is one of the loveliest of Westmorland's villages, a delightful 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."

The surrounding countryside is indeed very beautiful and unusual in having large tracts of unfenced land providing a huge variety of interesting walks. The village itself has retained many of the services lost in recent years by other rural communities. There is a village school, shop/P.O., surgery, church, chapel, inn, tearoom/gift shop, and a nationally-acclaimed monthly Farmers' Market.
