Irton Hall Cottages These two bedroomed cottages are built in traditional style and set within the grounds of the magnificent Irton Hall. Each cottage enjoys the full benefits of this peaceful parkland setting, itself located in a quiet, yet particularly beautiful area of West Cumbria.

Each cottage has been tastefully constructed to reflect traditional style with use of stone and rendered walls under tiled roofs. Internally the modern comfortable accommodation is well appointed and furnished.

Irton Hall is set within 19 acres of ground and 12 acres of mature parkland, lying at the foot of the majestic western fells of the Lake District National Park. The hall nestles in the junction of Wasdale, Miterdale and Eskdale which provides a spectacular backdrop and a very special location for expoloring this beautiful region, which is unspoilt by mass tourism.
