    “Dale House is very comfortable with a lovely garden and in spite of it being mid October we had beautiful weather and were able to enjoy a morning coffee in the garden.”

    The shop in the village sells an array of different things and the gentleman who runs it is extremely friendly and helpful. We got some especially nice bread from him. The village is in a beautiful part of the Lake District and we didn't have to go far to enjoy all that it has to offer.

The property

Dale House is a semi-detached early Victorian house resting in High Lorton, a quaint Lakeland village surrounded by spellbinding scenery from glistening lakes and magnificent mountain views to pretty Lakeland towns.

Retaining many original features, including stained glass, a characterful open fire and Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, this retreat is a charming base for families or travellers.

The lounge oozes comfort and tradition, with books and collectables on display, creating somewhere pleasant to relax morning through to evening.

Join the whole family for some quality time in the dining area, equally as impressive, with seating for eight people, a woodburning stove, and a piano to really set the scene.

The kitchen brings a fresh feel to the cottage, with whitewashed units and a country overtone, neighboured by an equipped utility area.

The next floor is a characterful haven, offering three different room styles, each boasting their own personality, with access to the modernised family bathroom.

After a peaceful night's sleep, why not enjoy a moment or two on the delightful sunny patio, or tour the village, from which to explore the quiet and less frequented Vale of Lorton which includes Buttermere, Loweswater and Crummock.

Also, Keswick is only 7 miles away.

There is an abundance of walking opportunities directly from the door and close by Whinlatter Forest is home to a whole host of activities including Go-Ape tree top adventure on the Whinlatter Pass, mountain biking and orienteering to name just a few.

There is no wonder that once discovered, holidaymakers choose to return to the area year after year.

About the location

LORTON

Braithwaite 4.3 miles; Cockermouth 6 miles; Keswick 7 miles.

Lorton is a village in the district of Allerdale, in Cumbria and is made up of two small villages – Low Lorton and High Lorton, both of which are nestled at the northern end of the Vale of Lorton. Surrounded by the mountains such as Grasmoor, Hopegill Head and Whiteside it is a perfect destination for exploring a number of hillwalks and visitors are encouraged to visit the 12th century St. Cuthbert’s church. Lorton itself is relatively untouched by tourism and yet is only approximately 4 miles away from Cockermouth, which offers access to the A66 road. Other nearby settlements include Loweswater and Brigham. The Whinlatter Pass road offers a scenic drive and connects Lorton with Braithwaite. Within an easy drive the nearby town of Cockermouth has plenty of places to eat and drink and is of course famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. A great location whatever you choose to do.
