The chink of china and cutlery, the cosy atmosphere, the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the best scones in Cumbria all make Orton Grange Café one of those places that you just keep going back to again and again once you’ve discovered it. The warm welcome and gentle hum of relaxed conversation help you to unwind whatever car you’re driving and there’s always plenty of parking spaces. Electric car drivers have their own cordoned off area – crucial for electric cars which rely on easy access to charging points.
Other destinations with charging points have issues with petrol/diesel cars taking up electric car places leaving them stranded because they can’t reach the charging point. Not so at Orton Grange where a 24/7, free, easy access charge makes life easy for electric car owners.
Like her brother Richard, Claire is passionate about using local produce and providing facilities for the local community to use. Orton Grange ice cream is a perfect example of the values running through the business, made with milk from their own Holstein cows using power generated by the turbine the family truly live and breathe a modern day “good life”! As you drop into Orton Grange for a free charge for your car, you can pick up your Sunday Roast from Cranstons, get Aunty Betty’s birthday card and present in the gift shop that stocks gifts from local business, have a swim get your hair cut and a lovely lunch into the bargain.
Whether you drive an electric car or not – pop into Orton Grange before 11.30am any day with the voucher you can find in our e-magazine http://tinyurl.com/oyemh22.
