Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Cumbria

An increasing number of holidaymakers in the United Kingdom are discovering that the county of Cumbria has more than its fair share of natural beauty. The Lake District is responsible for the bulk of the tourists that head for the county, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Cumbria also boasts the idyllic Eden Valley, and parts of the Pennines and Yorkshire Dales. This unique rural county calls for some unique accommodation, which can be found in the myriad of independent hotels in Cumbria.

Exquisite Country Locations

Cumbria has no shortage of idyllic rural locations, which means that visitors are spoiled for choice when it comes to exquisite country hotels. From shimmering lakes to luscious woodland and dizzying peaks, there's all types of impressive views to be found.

Sharrow Bay Hotel enjoys a particularly magnificent setting, overlooking Ullswater and the surrounding countryside. The restaurant gets the best of the views, but the meeting rooms and conference space also get their fair share.

A More Personal Experience

The real charm of staying in an independent hotel is the service. With staff members fully dedicated to pleasing guests, it's reasonable to expect a more personal level of service than can typically be found in larger, chain hotels.

This is particularly true in smaller hotels and B&Bs. The Wheatlands Lodge Bed and Breakfast, for example, has just eight rooms. This allows the owners to welcome guests individually and to offer handy advice on things to see and do in the local area. With the waterside location at Windermere, there's plenty on offer.

Explore Historic Carlisle

It may be true that most visitors to Cumbria come for the countryside, but the historic city of Carlisle is well worth the visit. As the county's only urban area, the city is home to the highest concentration of hotels in Cumbria, meaning visitors are spoiled for choice.

The Angus Hotel is a three-star guesthouse in the heart of Carlisle. From here, guests can enjoy a short walk to all the major attractions, including Carlisle Castle and the spectacular cathedral. There's also a small garden.
