About Karan

My husband and I have owned Irton Manor for approximately 9 years, we have spent a lot of time bringing the estate up to the standard it is today and we would love to share it with you. Our gardens are beautiful and the house is comfy and spacious and with so much to do on the estate you could spend all your time here.

Karan purchased this chateau / country house in 2007

Why Karan chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

We have lived in the area for most of our lives and when the property came up for sale we had to buy it even though we had to spend 2 years renovating it to the standard it is today, entering the gates you feel that at the end of the drive there is a special house. The peace and quite at Irton is very relaxing but it is just a short drive into Scarborough.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Irton Manor has 6 spacious bedrooms (5 south facing with 4 ensuites), 3 further bedrooms are situated in Courtyard Cottage which has an indoor corridor linking it to the Manor which means we can accommodate up to 18 guests (the cottage is priced separately) the Manor is very convenient to the town, beaches and moors yet with all the facilities we have on site you may wish to stay within our 35 acres and enjoy the estate. We have negotiated a rate of £10 per person for any guests who would like to play a round of golf at South Cliff course in Scarborough.

Out of this world amazing weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have just come back from a relaxing girls weekend and can I say that Irton Manor was absolutely amazing .... overwhelmingly so!! The Space and both modern and old features complimented this magnificent home. Karen and the staff do an amazing job maintaining the home, grounds and pool. We were very sad to leave as we made such fun and memories at Irton Manor and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family in the future (as long as they invite me too). Superb!!

Annies 60th / Jothams 6th Birthday Celebrations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start ? Probably the ultimate location for a family / friends gathering.A magnificent building in a equally beautiful location.Karen, the House Manager and all the support staff couldnt do enough to help make our stay one to remember.

The facilities are first class, lovely little touches eg.fresh free range eggs, bottles of wine, birthday rose etc.all helped to make our family break one the children and grandchildren will always remember.

There is so much room in the Manor, beautiful quiet areas ,an exciting games room and exceptional pool area , everywhere decorated to a very high standard.

Unfortunately I feel all future family holidays are going to be compared with this one.Cant imagine how I top it !

Thomas 30th birthday celebrations

  • 5 of 5

I had wanted to stay in a manor for a while and had spent many hours researching which one I would choose for my 30th birthday. This did not disappoint, what an absolute stunning place inside and outside. I was surprised how large the pool was, the bedrooms were beautiful and the games room well that was very entertaining spent many hours playing on the pool table, ping pong table andfootball table. Before we arrived I had planned to visit other places near the manor but nobody wanted to leave we spent all of our time there. We met Karen on arrival the house manager who was very nice and very helpful and I had also been given a birthday card and gifts. My friends and family will definitely be back we miss it already.

Fantastic Family New Year

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away as soon as we approached the house down the driveway. It really was an awesome sight. The interior did not disappoint. The children had a great time running up and down the hallways. The swimming pool and games room were definitely the highlight for the children/teenagers. The open plan kitchen had everything in you could ever need and was great for everyone to sit around and chat over breakfast and relax in the evenings. It was nice to have sky tv and watch a film together in the large sitting room which had extremely comfy sofas. The dining room and the snug room added a touch of elegance and a chance to have some quiet time. The bedrooms were all spacious and very comfortable with amazing views. My husband loved the quality of the carpets under foot. We spent a lot of the week in the house, it was so cosy and lovely that we didn't feel the need to go out very much. On our return the damage deposit was back in our bank account the very next day. All in all a fantastic week in an awesome house. We felt truly spoiled with it.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

I booked Irton Manor for a family getaway for Christmas 2016. Wow !!!! The pictures really don't do it justice. It is absolutely stunning. So spacious and well laid out. There were so many gorgeous rooms, i couldn't pick a favourite. Karen was so helpful with all our needs. Our shopping was unpacked prior to our arrival. the welcome gifts were a lovely touch. All our children ranging from 1 to 17 were over whelmed and didn't want to leave. All the rooms were amazing and luxurious. The swimming pool was a big hit, every day, very clean and well maintained. The owners were very friendly and helpful and on hand with anything that we needed. The surrounding landscape is beautiful for walks for some fresh air. Our party of 12 were so impressed, we all had an amazing Christmas thanks to Irton Manor. I would highly and already have recommended to friends and family. It really is absolutely beautiful.

An amazing place beautifully furnished

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place with fantastic grounds and facilities. This was our second visit there were 12 of us which included 5 teenagers and we just love the place. The pool is of a good size and depth and just the right temperature. The kitchen is exceptional and a joy to cook in, we tended to relax around the kitchen area as it had great views over the garden and there was so much room. Tennis court is pristine and the golf course was much appreciated by the men folk. The owners kindly arranged for a round of golf for the keen players at their club. The hidden garden is a sight to behold. I can't praise this place enough for a relaxing break we felt like lords and ladies of the manor. We were so well looked after by Karen who kept in contact to check if we needed anything.

Karen is always on hand to make sure that all our guests have a great experience at Irton Manor. Thank you again and maybe we will see you for a third visit sometime in the future?
