The Lutwidge Arms at Holmrook is a Victorian roadside Inn on the banks of the River Irt with a welcoming atmosphere in one of the most unspoiled and beautiful regions of the Lake District. We are ideally located for access to the superb walking areas in the nearby Wasdale and Eskdale valleys. The beautiful Wastwater Lake is only 15 minutes away from the hotel.
We provide comfortable accommodation in 15 ensuite bedrooms and offer a varied selection of home cooked food in our Restaurant and Bar.
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 as well 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 Sanctuary. Ravenglass is five minutes away as is the La'al Ratty the miniature railway which takes you deep into the beautiful Eskdale Valley.
This has been described as one of the 'most beautiful train journeys in the country'. For the anglers out there permits can be obtained locally to fish various Lakes and local rivers when in season. The Hotel welcomes families with well-behaved children aged FIVE years and over.
