Who we ARE

Osprey Management Group

As well as offering management services, the Osprey Management Group’s ambition is to purchase and regenerate local hospitality businesses, relaunching, refurbishing and managing them to a high standard, in order to preserve them as viable businesses with a focus on the communities they serve.

Our aim is to offer not only an excellent service for locals and visitors alike, but also lasting employment for local people and an enduring legacy of community funds.

By providing good value home-cooked food, a range of drinks to suit all tastes and friendly, attentive service in a comfortable environment, at an Osprey property you are “always among friends”.


Parts of Hunday Manor date back to 1760, when the original private manor house called High Lodge was built. It was once owned by the Trench Family, who also held Sunday School meetings in the house.

It became an Approved School for Girls from 1944 to 1948. Between 1951 and 1968 a National Coal Board miner’s rescue centre was based here. At the time of the Winscales Rescue Centre’s establishment, there were 13 coal mines at work in the area. In 1973 the Solway Colliery in Workington was closed, and Haig Pit in Whitehaven became the only remaining coal mine in the area. 

It is only in more recent times that it became the country house hotel we see today.

Our Story

Hunday Manor Hotel: a special place

On the fringes of the Western Lake District close to the sea, in an enviable rural location, yet close to West Cumbria’s business hubs, Hunday Manor provides a comfortable and convenient home-from-home for leisure and business visitors, a stunning location for meals and drinks out, and the perfect venue for life’s special occasions.

The Hunday traded as a family-run country house hotel, and a popular choice for weddings and special events, for many years before its acquisition by Osprey. We look forward to refurbishing and relaunching this charming character property, to take its place at the forefront of the area’s hospitality provision.
