Irton Hall was steeped in history, with the building now divided into seperate accomodation. Our room was huge with views across the front garden ( including the Kings tree ) including ensiute. The rooms are neat and tidy but very basic, but worth the money. This B&B is popular with hikers and those who love to loose themselves in the beautiful scenery. There is a restaurant within the building serving good quality meals and a full bar. We liked this place.

We booked Irton Hall last minute and received a great discount for our 1 night day as we only paid £50 for a double room. Irton Hall is a very 'grand' building and our double room was huge - as was our bathroom. Our room came complete with TV, king size bed, tea/coffee, and the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath and a shower. The breakfast was good and included a selection of cereals, toast, juice, tea/coffee and a full english breakfast - served with either a black pudding or haggis.

The purpose for our visit was to climb scafell pike the next day - it was the perfect base for this as the start of the walk was only 25 minutes drive away.

Would definitely recommend.

A nice, dog friendly hotel - the room was a very good size, as was the bathroom, and it was clean and comfortable. Well located for our walk up and down Scafell Pike, which is only a short drive away.

We were given a quick tour of the hotel (bar, restaurant and room) by Tom, the manager on arrival. He was very friendly and welcoming.

Although they don't allow dogs into the restaurant area, where they serve breakfast, they are welcome in the bar area and so, helpfully, our breakfast table was set up in the bar area so we could eat with our dog.

We only ate breakfast at the hotel - but this was fine.

It's a grand old building and well maintained. It's perhaps short of something like a swimming pool or spa area which would be the finishing touch to a very nice place to stay.
We'd happily stay here again.

Fabulous, brilliant, great! Stayed at Irton Hall, in the Clock Tower, for 4 nights, 3 days, from 14th to 18th August with 8 members of my family. This was a surprise for me, all I knew was that my husband was taking me away for a short break to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary and my 65th birthday, which are a week apart.

When we approached the Hall I was taken aback at it's beauty and the well-kept grounds that surround it. At Reception, Tom (the Manager) said he would escort us to our accommodation and I was surprised when he led the way outside and towards buildings at the rear. Then he opened the door to the Clock Tower and took us inside. What a surprise! Hidden behind the sofas and a pillar were the other members of my family who had travelled down from Scotland - Tom had been in on the secret, arrangements for which had (apparently) been made months beforehand!

The clock Tower has five bedrooms, 4 of them ensuite (one bedroom has a connecting door leading to a children's room with bunk beds). Every room had more than enough space, big comfy beds and a toilet/shower room that was also spacious. Everything was clean and the joint living area had TV, DVD player and a CD player. There was a cosy wood-burner and additional radiators. The kitchen area was extremely well-equipped with everything one could need for self-catering (usually things such as tea towels are missing or not provided) and towels were also provided in the bathrooms. So the guests need to take nothing but themselves! Outside there is a decked/fenced off area with a small BBQ - a lovely, private spot with only woodland behind.

We had arrived quite late but Tom ensured we were able to dine in Irton Hall's bar area - good quality, reasonably priced food, a Specials Board and interesting local beers. Very friendly and helpful staff. Really couldn't fault anything. We also dined in on the Friday night and were accommodated in what i assume was the Breakfast Room - a nice, private room for our party.

I cannot write in praise too highly of Irton Hall's Clock Tower, the bar in the main Hall, the staff and the general surroundings. Ideally situated to reach all the Lakes and to traverse Hardknock Pass/Wynrose Pass (a must for the brave driver!).

Obviously, I cannot comment on other accommodation, either B & B within the Hall or self-catering in any of the surrounding cottages, but I understand that Irton Hall itself is under recently new ownership and is gradually being refurbished, but everything I saw was spic and span.

Highly recommended!

Oh, and Tom, if you're reading this - a big thank you to you and your staff!

This hotel is such a hidden gem. Just 15 mins away from wastwater and ascent to scarfel pike. We have stayed here twice. Each time it has been an absolute joy!!! The service is great and the hotel rooms are excellent with jacuzzi bath too. This is our favourite hotel in the lakes.
