WELCOME To IRTON HALL

You may want a base for hiking or biking amongst lovely Lake District fells; you might want to tour Lakeland, its coast and the English borders; or you could simply seek a place of peace and quiet to re-charge batteries and refresh your spirits. Whatever you wish from your Lakeland visit, Irton Hall is the perfect place to stay in beautiful surroundings.

With a noble history back to the 14th century, Irton Hall is a delightful holiday destination, in the foothills of Lakeland’s western fells between Wasdale and Eskdale. The Hall offers fifteen luxurious B&B rooms – plus there are six self-catering units both in the main house and in the 19 acres of surrounding parklands.  

Irton Hall is a pet-friendly hotel, and you are welcome to take your pet into your room and to the bar; however, pets are not permitted in the restaurant/dining room. Irton Hall features a popular bar and restaurant, as well as the purpose-built and self-contained Grey Lady Suite - perfect for civil weddings and receptions, parties and celebrations, as well as for business events and conferences.

Ideally located to local attractions and country walks

Irton Hall is close to a wide range of local attractions, such as West Cumbria’s beaches, the Eskdale miniature steam railway at Ravenglass - plus Muncaster Castle and Gardens, with its International Owl Sanctuary. Accessed via Hardknott Pass and Wrynose Pass, the Langdale Pikes are to the east, whilst Wasdale and Wastwater are only five miles away, providing walking access to Great Gable and Scafell Pike. Ennerdale Water, Crummock Water and Buttermere are also close by, as are the historic port and marina of Whitehaven. The nearest shop, pub and restaurant are one mile from Irton Hall.

Testimonials

What they Say?

"What a brilliant place!"
“Came to Irton Hall for two nights with my sister, together with my other sister and her husband. It was a last-minute getaway and we absolutely loved it! The setting is stunning and the grounds are well kept; the rooms were clean and entirely adequate for our needs. The staff were all, without exception, lovely and friendly – plus they were exceptionally knowledgeable about the area. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and the bar on the second night. Both meals were very good and excellent value for money.”
