We stayed at Irton Hall for two nights from Friday til Sunday. It poured down all weekend so it was hard to find things to do.
The hotel itself is beautiful with a picturesque scene and lovely spacious rooms. The beds are massive and includes a tv with freeview, fridge, tea and coffee, ensuite jacuzzi bath and shower. We were on the ground floor at the back of the hotel overlooking the self catering cottages.
On the Saturday we headed to seascale to look at the beach however it was raining so heavily we turned around and came back. Then we went to muncaster castle to see the owl sanctuary but had to leave after an hour because of the weather again.
All the towns that surround Irton Hall are very very small with very little. We found that if you want something a bit busier and bigger, you need to drive about an hour away. We drove to cockermouth but it seems nowhere served food on a Saturday night so we ended up at a pun ten minutes away from the hotel in the end. Of course you can eat at the hotel but we preferred not to.
I think if the weather had been nicer we would have had a more enjoyable time however the hotel is lovely and I can't fault the service.
The only thing that did annoy me was that the fire alarm went off at 4am on Sunday morning. We were all stood on the front lawn absolutely freezing, we waited five minutes before finding out that no staff were staying on site!!! In the end the guests decided to call the fire brigade as we were all stood there like lemons. About ten-fifteen minutes later a member of staff turned up. As everything is so far away, it took a while for the fire brigade to turn up too!
