Orton is a pretty village, south of Appleby. It is a popular staging post on the Coast to Coast walk, before the long haul to Kirkby Stephen. Bridges cross and re-cross the two village becks enclosing a small central green that shares space with 17th and 18th century cottages. Orton Hall, a grade II listed Jacobean mansion, built of stone in 1662, is a self-catering establishment.
