Why Tony Sartorius (Manager) chose Irton with Santon
The farmhouse provides comfortable roomy accommodation in the beautiful Wasdale Valley. Only a short walk away is The Bridge Inn, there are views of Great Gable and Scafell Pike and other mountains of the Western Lakes are nearby. The Eskdale Valley is only a short drive away. The beach at Drigg offers beautiful sand dunes and there is a wealth of other attractions such as Muncaster Castle and the Lal Ratty railway. Short breaks are available November to March, excluding Christmas and New Year, and on a last minute basis from April to October. We can also offer 2 or 3 bedroom occupancy at lower rates.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The property is spacious and retains the traditional features of a lakeland farmhouse with a roomy kitchen as well as a large dining room, perfect for winding down after energetic walks on the fells. This area has England's deepest lake, Wastwater, England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and the Bridge Inn nearby hosts the 'World's Biggest Liar Competition' each autumn.

I would definitely stay here again. Great location for the western lake district
We had a great 2 nights in this spacious farm house. The house was very comfortable and suited us perfectly. We enjoyed being able to walk to the pub for meals in the evening and the location was perfect for walks from Wasdale Head. The landlord provided very helpful instructions and it worked well having the keys sent to us by post. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks very much!
Many thanks for your review, we’re pleased you found everything ok and it it’s so convenient having the Bridge Inn just a short walk away. We love the Wasdale Valley too, the scenery is stunning, and views from the farmhouse too!
See you soon.
Lovely property overall but looking bit tired in places , just a lick of paint here and there and some fixing of tiles and wood around kitchen fireplace, new hob and oven and update of carbon dioxide detectors as expired. But on the whole a very comfortable stay great location and with the Bridge Inn pub just few minutes walk away it’s a good location. Our group of 6 adults and 2 children enjoyed the space of the property and each had en-suite with stunning views. So much to do and see either by car or local walks made this holiday one to remember but we were lucky enough to have beautiful sunshine all week. A must for the brave to climb Scarfell pike, but many other less energetic climbs and walks near by . Waterfalls, motor museum,
Steam trains, Beatrix Potter, lakes and so much more to do topped of with delicious food and great beers at the Bridge Inn . Would not hesitate to return and will highly reccommed comming here .
Many thanks for your review, thanks for the suggestions, they're always welcomed, and of course a great help for other guests too.
The breakages (which weren't reported by previous guest unfortunately) have been fixed now and last September all the smoke alarms, CO alarms and heat detectors were changed, which I hope is a comfort for our guests.
In due course we will carry out some sympathetic decor improvements but try and keep some of the old distressed patina!
We're glad you found so much to do, this is the big benefit of the Western Lakes as we have the best of both worlds; sea and mountains.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Home away from home
Verry welcoming, felt like walking in to a home. Flowers made the house look and feel relaxing.
Many thanks for your review, we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found the old farmhouse a 'home from home'. It's a quirky old building and now nearly 200 years old, so it retains so much character. It would be a real shame I think to modernise it, and I have to say most guests are like you and prefer it that way.
It's a real bonus too to have the mountain views from the house as it's set amongst stunning scenery.
We hope to see you soon.

This property is perfect for 4 couples, each room having an en-suite bathroom. The lounge is fab with big comfy sofas set around a wood burner. The kitchen really well equipped for cooking for 8 and we were warm and toasty throughout our stay. The pub serves excellent food too!
Lovely property in good location
Lovely well-equipped property in beautiful countryside
The Farmhouse has stood at the entrance to the Santon Bridge hollow since the days of the old packhorse trains that used to ply their way between Whitehaven and Kendal over Styhead Pass. This fascinating traditional old building provides homely, relaxing and spacious accommodation for up to eight people – with breathtaking views of Wasdale. The building was constructed in the early part of the 19th century and retains many of its original features. There are many walks nearby, Wastwater and the Scafells are a short drive as is the sea, Muncaster Castle, the L'al Ratty railway and other attractions, but the essential tranquility of the Western Lake District is uncompromised.
