Orthwaite

Orthwaite manor house courtesy Andy WallaceOrthwaite is a small scattering of buildings. Orthwaite Hall once belonged to an African traveller. Sheep thrive on the land around the farm. Ruins on the property are thought to be Roman in origin.

Nearby is a bridleway leading to Ullock Pike ridge. The Cumbria way footpath skirts the area. Overwater Tarn is to the north of the hamlet, and Little Tarn is to the south. To the east are the Uldale fells.
