A luxury hotel in the Lyth Valley is proving a hit with visitors following a major refurbishment that saw it downsize its bedroom numbers from 15 to nine.
Lyth Valley Hotel, near Kendal, is owned by Steve and Karen Edmondson and opened its doors in July 2016, following an extensive renovation programme.
A total of 15 jobs were created after the renovation which saw the interior of the pub completely gutted and then redeveloped with the number of bedrooms reducing from 15 to nine.
Lyth Valley Hotel is the second property for the Edmondsons, who also own Winster Valley Brewery and The Brown Horse Inn in Winster, South Lakeland.
Mr Edmondson, said: “This was a big project over an 18-month period which has involved significant investment. The final result is better than we could have ever imagined.
“We have reduced the number of rooms from 15 to nine, which are all en suite with baths and showers and we have put in a balcony at the back where people can sit out and enjoy the views.
“The feedback from visitors so far has been extremely positive and we have very high hopes for the future of this venture.”
The couple’s vision was to create a fresh and exciting place to eat, drink and stay in Kendal – as well as become a venue for events including wedding and corporate occasions.
