Orton attractions

OrtonOrton lies in Cumbria, a county formed from the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and part of North Lancashire, and now England's second largest county in size. Here you will find the beautiful Lake District National Park with spectacular mountain scenery, forest trails and lakeside paths around the 16 major lakes. The almost alpine landscape of England's highest mountains are a draw for the millions of visitors who pour into the park each year, where for 200 years, it has been the inspiration for artists, poets and writers who have made their home here.
