Something for everyone...

Glenfield House B&B is ideally situated to serve the needs of those visiting the Cumbrian Coast and the Western Lake District for both leisure and business.


Located on the southern edge of Whitehaven town centre, the B&B is just a few minutes' walk from Corkickle train station and on a direct bus route to the outlying areas of Cleator Moor, Frizington, Egremont, Calder Bridge, Ennerdale Bridge and Gosforth. From here, keen walkers can easily access some of the Western Lakes' most spectacular scenery at Ennerdale and Wasdale - and the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. The guesthouse offers clothes drying facilities and a hearty breakfast to fuel intrepid walkers for an energetic day's fell-walking.

Our accommodation is also a popular choice for business guests whose requirements necessitate close proximity to West Lakes Science and Technology Park and Sellafield, just over 11 miles to the south. With free wi-fi, shirt pressing service and off -site parking, we welcome hundreds of business guests throughout the year.

Whitehaven is also recognised as the starting point for the famous C2C coast-to-coast cycle route, stretching from the Irish Sea on the Cumbrian coast to the North Sea off the Northumbrian coast. This 136 mile route, which crosses the Lake District and The Pennines, attracts more than 14,000 cyclists each year. Offering secure purpose-built cycle storage and early-morning breakfasts as well as optional packed lunches, Glenfield is the ideal choice for those embarking on the C2C.

Visiting the Cumbrian Coast for a leisurely break? More and more people are discovering the unspoilt beauty of the rugged Cumbrian coast and Western Lake District, with its wide, sandy dog-friendly beaches, breath-taking lakes and dramatic fells.

At Glenfield House B&B we are always happy to help you plan your break and make the most of your stay. Take in the spectacular scenery of the lesser-known lakes of Loweswater, Crummock Water, Buttermere, Ennerdale Water and Wast Water, with their backdrop of foreboding fells and majestic mountains.

Challenge your driving skills on one of the mountain passes of Honister, Whinlatter or even the infamous Hardknott Pass.


Or discover the historic significance of some of the quaint villages and towns in the area such as Roman Ravenglass, the sandstone cliffs of St. Bees, the market town of Egremont or the wide Main Street of Edwardian Cockermouth, and of course, the ever-popular tourist town of Keswick, situated alongside one of the larger lakes, Derwentwater. Whether you enjoy boat trips, fell-walking, cycling or simply taking life at a leisurely pace, there really is something for everyone.
