RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

We came back because it was so good! The location is excellent for accessing the fells and the coast road alike! And the cottage has been immaculate each time we've stayed. The key security box system is convenient too.

This cottage was in the perfect surroundings, being so close to the hotel was very convenient and the staff and food there were great. The living room area was well decorated and equipped while the kitchen was very well equipped with good quality utensils. The bed was very comfortable and the bath was probably the deepest one I have ever been in.

Not quite what we expected
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
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.
