Scar View is a charming stone cottage in an elevated position on the edge of the peaceful Eden village of Orton. Scar View offers comfortable well-equipped accommodation for five people. There are two bedrooms - a double bedroom and a family bedroom with a king size and single bed making Scar View ideal for both families and friends. The cottage benefits from a beautiful pastoral view over the village towards the church and Orton Scar, a fell with an impressive limestone pavement across the summit.

Orton is a traditional village with a pub serving food, a village shop and post office. The writer and fell walker Alfred Wainwright considered Orton to be 'the loveliest of all Westmorland's villages'. The famous Kennedy's hand made chocolate factory is based in Orton and has a cafe serving delicious hot chocolate and a small shop selling their chocolates. On the second Saturday of every month is the Orton farmer's market renowned as being one of the best in Britain with live music and a hog roast as standard.

Scar View Cottage is ideally situated for walkers seeking a variety of distances to tackle. Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk passes through the village or you can walk from the cottage to the limestone fells of Orton Scar. The limestone environment offers a rare habitat for plants and wildlife.

Scar View Cottage offers cosy 'home from home' accommodation all year round. Orton remains pleasantly quiet, benefitting from beautiful scenery right on the doorstep whilst being within easy reach of the Lake District.
