Eating Out

In Orton there is the George Hotel Restaurant and Bar 

Also in Orton is Kennedy's Chocolate Factory, great for a light lunch or hot chocolate

Tebay has The Cross Key  and the Barnaby Rudge

Shap has a number of good pubs with restaurants

There may be other pubs and restaurants I have missed off.  This is not intentional and is not intended to be a definitive list or recommendation.  Just a starting point


A local taxi company is Allens of Eden and is based in Tebay


The property is rural and as a result does not have a particularly good internet connectivity. We at best get 2Mb down load so ok for getting emails and limited web browsing but not for streaming movies. 

The elevated position does mean that 3/4G mobile connectivity is reasonable particularly with Vodafone and EE


Useful tip when driving to the property is that the  M6 motorway can  be reached or left via Tebay services.
