A well equipped, clean cottage ideally placed for easy access to Wasdale Head. The cottage is situated within the grounds of Irton Hall Hotel where one can enjoy the excellent bar meals and real ale, they also had free wi-fi. James Court Cottage is surrounded by other cottages, some privately owned. The Santon Bridge Inn is within walking distance, but we preferred the food in the hotel bar. The only problem during our stay was a lack of towels which was quickly rectified by contacting the owner.
A great place from which to explore this remote corner of the Lake District.

Lovely property well presented, warm and cosy. The settee is a bit low for older people so any easy chairs would be ideal. Irton Hall has a bar and restaurant and if we'd known that would not have taken so much food and drink. Nice walk to Santon Bridge over the fields. The grounds are peaceful and walking brilliant
Only problem with the entry system, the key number had been changed so the agent had to come out.
Nice stay in tranquil surroundings

Lovely estate, very tranquil. Purposely stayed somewhere that had a bar, sadly it had no atmosphere and was just too quiet. The property was nice but a new 3 piece suite is required as after a fun packed day it would have been nice to have relaxed on a comfortable sofa instead of a rock hard one.
comfy cottage in stunning location

This is a small (but more than spacious enough for a family of four) cottage which has been very recently renovated to a high standard. The owner was very friendy and left a much appreciated "welcome pack" of wine, milk and chocolates. There are several cottages all in the grounds of Irton Hall, a country house now small hotel. There isn't a private garden with the cottage but all can use the extensive attractive grounds which was great for children; we also appreciated the outdoor games (swingball, tennis rackets etc) left for our use. The hotel runs a very friendly bar in the evening and we spent some lovely sunny evenings on the benches outside (us with local beers, the children happy with frui-shoots and crisps). The local lake "Wast Water" is stunning, completely undeveloped and beautiful in a bleak way. There are plenty of walks to do around here, which even our 6 year old managed. Further afield (a good hours drive from this far point of the lakes, be warned) we loved Keswick, a really pretty town and a great place to spend a wet day. The kids loved the Pencil Museum there, which had a great drawing room conveniently next to the cafe so the children could sit and doodle while we relaxed with a coffee. Be warned the nearest decent sized supermarket is a good 30-40 minutes away so it may pay to shop on the way or order in from the local Tesco. A bargain of a holiday though, great for families or those wanting some peace and quiet and extensive walking!
