Irton Hall is a stunning holiday location with an impressive history, set in the foothills of the western fells of the Lake District between Wasdale and Eskdale. Parts of the magnificent hall, such as the Pele Tower, date from the 14th century. The Pele Tower creates a totally unique holiday venue on four floors featuring spacious rooms with beams, sandstone walls and an original stone spiral staircase from top to bottom of the tower. The third floor family bedroom and en-suite are accessed via this spiral staircase; the other floors have additional standard staircase access, whilst the first floor living room has a leisure area with pool table.

Both Oliver Cromwell and Henry VI visited the hall, although it is reputed that Henry VI was refused entry and spent the night under the 1000 year old oak tree in front of the house, known as ‘The King’s Oak’.

Surrounded by 19 acres of natural parkland where children can play to their hearts’ content, and guests may wander and explore the natural habitats of abundant wildlife in the grounds. A short drive will bring you to wide sandy beaches, the Eskdale miniature steam railway at Ravenglass, and Muncaster Castle and Gardens which also house the unique International Owl Sanctuary. The Langdales are to the east, accessed via the Hard Knott Pass and Wrynose Pass, whilst Wasdale and Wastwater, with their amazing views of Great Gable and Scafell Pike, are 5 miles away. Ideally situated at the heart of the western Lake District, many lakes are within easy reach such as Ennerdale Water, Crummock Water and Buttermere. Whether to stroll along the banks and watch the reflection of the drifting clouds in the lakes, or expend some energy climbing the rugged hills to admire the stunning views from the top - the choices are endless. The historic port and marina of Whitehaven is 14 miles, with shops, restaurants, museums and many holiday activities. Beach 4¼ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

Pele Tower (ref 25366) can be booked together with Broughton House (ref 24374), The Clock Tower (ref 24587), Ormondroyd Cottage (ref 26258), Lingard Cottage (ref 26257) and Lamplugh (ref 25507) to accommodate up to 56 guests.
