                                                              Our weekend at Irton Manor surpassed all our expectations. The house itself is stunning and both the grounds and the house are perfectly maintained. The inside is spotlessly clean, bright and spacious, with immaculate modern facilities and a superbly equipped kitchen. The rooms are stylish and comfortable, with wonderful views of the garden from the windows and the photos on the site do not really do them justice. The sunny patio overlooking the gardens was the perfect place for al fresco dining, or for sitting and chatting whilst watching the children playing in the enclosed gardens in front. We were a family group of 12 people. 8 adults and 5 children, aged from 9 months to 69, gathered to celebrate a milestone birthday. There was plenty of space for everyone to either be together or to find a quiet corner in one of the many rooms if they wanted. We made use of all the facilities. We swam in the pool at least twice every day, had a birthday BBQ, played table tennis tournaments, billiards, golf competitions, tennis matches, looked for tadpoles in the ponds and badgers in the woods and had a picnic lunch in the secret rock garden with its ponds and waterfalls. The weather that weekend was glorious so we spent most of our time outside in the grounds. The house has everything you could wish for and more. Every detail has been considered and everything you think you are likely to need for your holiday you will find is already there. Karen the House Manager was so helpful both before our stay when all our queries were answered promptly and also nearby for help and advice when we were there. We had a wonderful time at Irton and would highly recommend this fabulous home for a fantastic family/friends holiday. We can't wait to go back. Thank you to Karen, Karan & Paul. The Smith Family

                                                              Perfect escape from it all

                                                              Booked for two nights 13-15 May 2016. Arrived and found the address via sat nav perfectly. Fell in love with the cottage on sight. We then went up to the Forresters and had dinner - staff friendly, locals friendly and fab food. Spent the rest of the night I front of the fire and TV. Saturday was spent out and about but came back with nibbles to relax in front of fire. Kitchen had everything you can think of and well stocked. The bed was amazing!!! Perfect sleep both nights and very quiet outside. 10/10 and would love to go back - thank you x

                                                              Fab cottage for large party with dog walkers

                                                              Fabulous cottage, well designed for large family weekends away - space to be together and apart. Wonderful walking in nearby location. And well equipped, including the popular snooker table. (Please put in a new darts board). Be prepared to be away from it all, with sheep as your closest neighbours - bliss! Highly recommended, but not so much that we can't get back again!
