This was our third visit to Orton Hall and again enjoyed ourselves immensley. If you want the clinical experience of a hotel, then try somewhere different, but if it's perod, historical, peaceful and chilled, then you can't beat it. The heating is not an issue, there are sufficient means to keep warm in the winter and the cost is nothing. We have stayed once in the summer and twice in the winter and have never had a problem.
There have been a few changes since we last stayed, notably new furniture and decor, remodelled kitchen and an electric power shower in the bathroom (Duke of Clarendon Suite)
We used the complimentary health spa membership which went down a treat. Both of us had a massage, I used the gym and then we spent about an hour in the pool and sauna (health spa is not on-site). Great benefit thrown in.
All in all great value for money, beautiful building and grounds and ideally suited for exploring the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Will be back in the summer.
