This character stone-built cottage near the village of Orton sleeps two people.

The Gatehouse is a unique, stone-built character cottage in the hamlet of Kelleth, three miles from the village of Orton, close to the Lake District National Park. This cottage sleeps two people in a galleried king-size double bedroom. The cottage also has a bathroom with cast-iron bath, kitchen and a sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove. Outside there is off road parking for one car and a front lawned garden with patio and bench. The Gatehouse is an ideal retreat for a couple, with walks and cycle routes in the area, the Settle-Carlisle railway, two National Parks and a number of villages and towns that are waiting to be discovered.


Loved The Gatehouse; loved the d?cor, the open plan design and it's location. The boys enjoyed the hammock in the living room. We also loved the bedroom and the bathroom.
Mrs Stokes

Really enjoyed our stay in the heart of the Lake District. The Gatehouse was lovely with a great garden, WiFi, TV and a wood burner to entertain the kids and the adults. Loved the piano.
Mr Dixon

Absolutely wonderful place, the view out of the windows, the slightly bizarre but beautiful and romantic, decoration, the roll top bath, the heavy curtains, the books, the comfortable and luxurious bed, the wood burner. Perfect.
Miss Simpson

An absolutely brilliant place to stay, very quirky but my wife and I loved it. Exactly as described and in a lovely location.
Mr Robson

We were inspired by the imagination that went into this property. It was relaxed, a wonderful place to chill out. Enjoyed walks around the village and the Howgills. Had a gorgeous view across the Howgills, changing with the moods of the weather. We enjoyed visiting the Yorkshire Dales and seeing Spring Gentians in Teesdale. It was also very accessible for the Lake District and Eden Valley.
