When we booked ,it was difficult to get a good idea of what the penthouse was really like.We walked up the stairs from the front door and thought, this is great.Although we had far from the best of weather, coming in at the end of the day was like coming home. Orton is a lovely village and in an ideal spot(The chocolate shop is a bonus).Close to the motorway but you can't hear it and accessible to many places of interest.

We stayed in the Penthouse during our first week in the UK and we were delighted with the experience. the apartment was lovely and warm, especially arriving from australia to your coldest winter in 100 years! We were greeted with flowers, wine and milk in the fridge which we were very grateful for.
We would have loved to know more of the history of the Hall, but it did not detract from our holiday. We would highly recommend this to others looking for a quiet romantic spot. Walking is delightful and the local shops provide backup to anything you have forgotten (milk, bread, wine, coffee etc). The local chocolate factory makes fantastic hot chocolate and trempts you with sample chocolates.
Overall an excellent apartment, which proved to be the best out of the four apartments we rented during our months stay. Well done and thank you. Sally

Idlyic, is a word that sums up the whole experience. The setting was marvellous and the fire alarm works as the lady looking after the property will testify! Would recommend to family and friends who want a relaxing break in beautiful countryside
