Planners can now host their events at Lindeth Howe, a building formerly owned by the famous children’s writer Beatrix Potter.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, the Lake District hotel has unveiled a new look, including the Hill Top room for business gatherings and conferences.

Named after Potter’s famous farmhouse, the Hill Top room is filled with nature-inspired furnishings and can host up to 42 delegates. The restaurant is also available for up to 80 people, and there are options for smaller boardroo- style gatherings and seminars in a variety of breakout rooms.

Lindeth Howe’s 2 AA rosette-rated restaurant can provide options ranging from light bites throughout the day to full banquet-style meals and events.

Delegates can be picked up straight from the train in a luxury mini-coach and taken to the hotel. There is also the option for team-building activities to be part of a corporate stay, including a round of golf at the nearby Windermere Golf Club, archery in the gardens once tended by Beatrix Potter or a murder mystery night.

Hotel manager Tony Holden, said: "We’re all very excited with the hotel’s new look, which we think still captures the spirit of Beatrix Potter’s love of nature and the Lake District landscape, but will also appeal to 21st century corporate guests.

"The latest investment at the hotel means we can offer more flexibility than ever before, giving businesses a unique location to energise, inspire teams and really help give them a competitive edge."
