Fantastic place to stay with such beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place to attend a wedding. This is a really lovely place to stay. The whole experience has been seamless with prompt replies from the owner Dominic. Every effort was made to make us feel welcome and to make sure that our needs were catered for. Orton Hall is beautiful with lovely grounds and some fun facilities including an ornate chess board and snooker table. The Rochester Wing is furnished beautifully, is warm and comfortable. It was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The kitchen is really well stocked with some really thoughtful twists: dishwasher tabs and medicine spoons for children.

We met a long term resident of the Hal who is quite the photographer and was so welcoming - red squirrels live in the grounds, our children loved it.

We made a short journey to the Black Swan in Ravenstonedale and really enjoyed the Scarecrow festival.

Loved every minute. Thank you guys.

Lovely Clean Property between Dales and Lakes

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely, with a grand entrance and amazing drapes. Everything in our place was clean and new. The linens were white and crisp and comfortable on our four-poster. The bathroom was all redone and very clean. The only downside was there was a bad smell in the air outside, like manure. I'm sure it was coming from somewhere else, not the house itself.

A great property in a lovely village.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this listed building. It was spacious and clean and had great character.

It was in a good position geographically, just off the M6, so we could visit lots of different places not far from where we stayed.
