Orton is very fortunate still to have a Village Shop and Post Office as well as
- a pub (Jennings for those who know their beer) that offers food – www.georgehotel.net
- Kennedy??s Fine Chocolates – www.kennedyschocolates.co.uk
- one of the best Farmers?? Markets in the country (second Saturday of each month).? See www.ortonfarmers.co.uk for details.
With confirmation of your booking you will receive a shopping list from Orton Village Store so that you know the range of food available and, if you wish, you can place an order in advance that will be unpacked into the kitchen cupboards and fridge, ready for you on arrival.

Fishing – If you??d like to try trout fishing then we have Bessy Beck Trout Fishery just a couple of miles away. See www.bessybecktrout.co.uk for further information.
Ice cream ?? We are spoilt for local ice cream with Kennedy??s Chocolates in the village offering a selection and the Village Store stocking ice creams too. However, if you fancy seeing the cows that make the milk that makes the ice cream, try Abbott Lodge Jersey Ice Cream, just off the A6 on the way from Orton to Penrith. www.abbottlodgejerseyicecream.co.uk.
