About the location
Irton Hall is situated in the foothills of the Western fells, and sits amongst beautiful Lakeland countryside just a couple of miles from Santon Bridge and Eskdale Green. Irton Hall is steeped in history; both Oliver Cromwell and Henry VI found their way there. Within the grounds is a 1000 year old tree, The Kings Oak. Tradition has it that Henry VI arrived at Irton Hall and sought shelter; being refused by the then owner, Irton, a Yorkist, King Henry spent the night under the great oak in front of the hall, which still stands and is hence called 'The Kings Oak'.
An area deemed beautiful by many Lakeland visitors, this great location boasts a skyline dominated by the towering peaks of Scafell - England's highest peak, as well as Great Gable, Hard Knott, Harter Fell and Muncaster Fell, whilst the nearby stunning valleys of Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale provide breathtaking, ever-changing scenery to be enjoyed throughout the year. Local attractions include Muncaster Castle, the World Owl Centre and the Ravenglass to Eskdale miniature railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys imaginable. Beautiful Wastwater - the deepest lake in the country and St Olaf's - the smallest church - are amongst the many well known landmarks in this awe inspiring and unspoilt area.
