About the hotel
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. Ravenglass is five minutes away as is the La'al Ratty, the miniature railway which takes you deep into the beautful 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. We do not accept pets.

Where do I begin.
The reception that we received on arrival was warm and friendly, we were shown to our room straight away. The room was spacious and clean with towels and toiletries. The bar is well stocked with some excellent local ales. The food was out of this world and very reasonably priced. After a very comfy night the breakfast was as good as any that I have had with a good choice. Loved the place.
Great food, good atmosphere, comfortable room and first class breakfast.
