“A comfortable haven for the British weather”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Near Gosforth, Wastwater district of the lakes.
the weather was very mixed when we arrived but the cottage itself was inviting and comfortable. Many gadgets available in kitchen, I found it home from home.
great to have a dishwasher and washing machine which we used a lot.
Used the woodburning stove in the evenings when it was a bit chilly and the downstairs area warmed up a treat. Bathroom lovely but the taps on the bath were a bit dangerous, they were loose and the hot water meant it was very difficult to turn tap on or off without burning hands, I used a towel to do this.

“Not quite what we expected”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

THE COTTAGE

The cottage was reasonably clean and attractively furnished and equipped.

We did have the turn the mattress, as it was sunken at one end. The kitchen would benefit from improved lighting. A plumber needs to provide attention to the bathroom where taps would rotate on the units.

Although a washing machine was provided there was no means of hanging clothes to dry, which is an oversight.

LOCATION

This was not what we expected. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing Lake District location then we would not recommend it. The cottage is one of many properties on an estate situate close together and next to a busy hotel. During our stay, we had to suffer outdoor live bands playing on the hotel lawn. Nonetheless, you do have freedom to roam the grounds which was a benefit when having small child.

“Certainly the best side of Cumbria”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Having stayed away from the Lakes because we felt that the area was going to be crowded out with visitors we were delighted to find that the Western side is a far and fairly secluded place. Irton Is a great base and the accommodation is fine (but for goodness sake sort out the taps - kitchen, bathroom and sink). The wood pellet boiler heats the house really well and the kitchen is well equipped.
Irton Hall is a bit whacky (William Court is privately owned) - the bar/restaurant; part of the hotel, is populated by business people but the food is OK. Might be better to check out both the Wasdale pubs.
BUT this is a great place for great walks away from the crowd. There's an amazing route to Skafell from Eskdale where you'll probably not meet a soul until the summit and then gaze across to to nearby peak of Skafell Pike and see the masses that have walked up from the Eastern side.
Wasdale is marvellous and the mountains to the North are all most rewarding.
BEWARE - the bad manners of the people,that work at the nuclear power station; Sellafield, every day from about 4pm they rat-run their way home in a North Easterly direction across the countryside. On a narrow country road we met over 150 vehicles in a 10 mile stretch from Calder Bridge to Ennerdale Bridge - never met such headlong rude driving. They are a discredit to an otherwise lovely area.

“Great Base for Climbing Scafell Pike”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Irton Hall is in a quiet relaxing location with a good on site bar and restaurant. Lovely cottage with well equipped kitchen and bathroom but perhaps in need of a repaint in some areas and a check of the taps especially in the kitchen. There is no private garden area but plenty of space to walk your dog within the grounds.
