The current owners have operated the hotel as a family-run business since 2007 during which time it has benefitted from a series of tasteful improvements and refurbishments which have not lessened the historic Victorian charm of the property. It was originally built as a Coaching Inn by the Lutwidge family in the late 19th century. It is located in the village of Holmrook on the banks of the crystal clear River Irt which flows out of Wastwater Lake. The Hotel is popular with both Leisure and Business visitors alike due to it s down to earth friendly approach. All of its recently refurbished ensuite rooms benefit from central heating and a good level of room-based facilities including flat screen TVs free wi-fi and in-house mobile phone signal enhancement. The original characterful wooden sliding sash windows have been recently replaced with modern double glazed hardwood units in the same style which aswell as maintaining the original look of the property gives the added advantage of warmth and quietness in the rooms. The Hotel has a tasteful restaurant as well as dining facilities in the Bar Area or in warmer months the Beer-Garden located at the rear of the property. The Lutwidge Arms is well located for not just the walkers amongst us but nearby is the seat of the Pennington family the Muncaster Castle with its magnificent stately home extensive gardens and delightful Owl Santuary.
