William Court Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
William Court Cottage is a delightful terraced cottage, situated in the grounds of the Irton Hall Estate, a mile from the village of Santon Bridge. Decorated to a high standard, the cottage offers a cosy retreat amongst the Lake District countryside and the cottage also has solid oak flooring throughout the ground floor and a pellet woodburning stove in the sitting room. William Court Cottage sleeps four and has two bedrooms - one king size double and one twin. The cottage also has a bathroom and an open plan living area that contains a lovely kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside, the cottage has off road parking for two cars and a small patio, plus there is shared use of 19 acres of parkland and woodland within the Irton Hall Estate. This part of the Lake District is ideal for walkers, cyclists and climbers, plus with the many other attractions nearby, William Court Cottage makes a delightful base for exploring the area.

Irton Hall sits at the foothills of the Western fells and is situated amongst breathtaking lakeland countryside. Irton Hall lies just a couple of miles from Santon Bridge and Eskdale Green and is steeped in history with Oliver Cromwell and Henry VI both visiting the Irton Hall Estate. The area around Irton Hall is a walker's haven with many peaks, just as Scafell, Great Gable and Hard Knott and valleys, just as Eskdale and Wasdale all nearby. Other attractions in the area that are well worth visiting are Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, plus Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church . Irton Hall is a perfect base to explore this peaceful part of the Lake District.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Great base for climbing Scafell Pike and a very quiet relaxing setting with a good bar and restaurant on site. Dog friendly and a no hassle booking arrival procedure.

The property had wood floor through the ground floor which was easy to clean, and the washing machine in the property helped manage a weeks washing. The king size bed and master bedroom were spacious with really good sized wardrobe. The wood burner was a bonus in the evening. The property was in a great setting with restaurant and bar and a safe site for dogs being able to walk straight out onto the grounds and woodland.

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.

This was a lovely cottage with everything we needed. It is in the picture perfect grounds of Irton Hall with the hotel bar just 30 seconds away serving real ales and good food. Also very dog friendly, we didn't want to come home. We had such a good stay in a beautiful location!!

The accommodation was very comfortable especially the beds. I often have difficulty feeling comfortable away form home so this was most welcome. The area was fantastic. I loved my holiday and would certainly like to come back to the same area and accommodation.

We enjoyed being able to take our 2 dogs to a pleasant and well-located collage. It was very practical for dog-owners.

Immaculate cottage in perfect location for exploring western side of Lake District. 6 miles from Wasdale and Eskdale valley up the road. Beautiful place. Thanks

The location was lovely with lovely pubs and great food near by. Great walks and scenery. Not far from Wastwater lake which is well worth a look. As a whole the cottage was lovely.

Irton Hall is in a quiet relaxing location with a good on site bar and restaurant. Lovely cottage with well equipped kitchen and bathroom but perhaps in need of a repaint in some areas and a check of the taps especially in the kitchen. There is no private garden area but plenty of space to walk your dog within the grounds.

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.

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.

The house was on a site with a hotel. The bar and restaurant were within 300 yards of the front door.

Lovely cottage in stunning settings, lovely thought that owner came by to see how we were getting on. I have recommended this cottage to family and friends for next year and hope to visit again.

Great situation and nice grounds. Lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby. Able to sit outside in the sun when the weather was good.

A beautifully tranquil place which is what we were looking for. We loved the cottage and didn't want to leave - it had such a pleasant feel to it. Also enjoyed the opportunity to use the bar at the hotel.

Do you know this was the first time I'd been to Cumbria and saw the top of the hill from the bottom. Our week started in rain and in deed finished the same. But the bit in the middle was beautiful. I guess you want to hear more about the cottage. A very smart cottage which was big enough for the two of us and our dog Jake. Good quality furniture, kitchen and bathroom. I do hope they have fixed the wobbly taps. Lovely location with a short walk to Irton Hall which is busy but great if you want a beer or can't be bothered to cook. Nice walk on peaceful roads to the pub and Santon. Lots of nice places to visit like Ravenglass. Don't bother with Millom. Liekd it so much would go next year.

Excellent standard of accommodation with local amenities. Cottage set in beautiful grounds. Further from some central lakes attractions so v peaceful and not too many tourists.
November 2010
The cottage was well appointed and it looked as though we were the first ever visitors from the paintwork and utensils. The main problem was finding which one it was when we arrived in the dark as there was no sign outside and nobody to ask. We eventually worked tried 2 keysafes and found the correct one! Apart from that we had a great week.
December 2011
-Easy to find. -Fantastic location. -Bar on site and great local pubs with wonderful food and famous walking faces! -Well equipped cottage but could do with the lounge seating being made more 'comfortable/cosy' and a dressing table in the main bedroom. -All in all a great cottage for the money.

Stayed here with a family member for a week in August and found it delightful: we were looking for a peaceful, restful stay and that is exactly what we received. The cottage was spotless with all necessary equipment and facilities - we found it welcoming and comfortable. The location, although much further from the M6 than we had expected in terms of time, was beautiful and ideally placed for visiting the coast as well as Wastwater and Eskdale. We enjoyed the opportunity to use the hotel bar where the food was plentiful as well as the very pleasant Woodlands tea room in the nearby village where delicious meals are available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I fully intend to book again in the near future,
