Welcome to Hunday Manor
Osprey Management Group Limited has recently added the Hunday Manor to its portfolio of properties and we are very excited to share that we have an ambitious one-year transition plan to carry out an extensive refurbishment of the Hotel and its gardens.
Parts of the Hotel date back many years, so naturally our programme will be sympathetic to the history of the building but nevertheless will ensure it has all of the 21st century facilities, technology and amenities to ensure our guests are comfortable and have an exceptional visit.
We like our guests to feel that while staying with us you are ‘Always Among Friends’ so if there is anything we can do to make your stay with us more comfortable, please inform us and we will do our upmost to help.
We hope the following guide provides you with all the information you need to make the most of your stay with us. If you need anything further, our reception team are only too happy to help.
Business Services & Conference Facilities
Any secretarial services you may require including typing, photocopying, faxing and emailing are available at Reception.
There are a variety of meeting rooms at Hunday Manor which can accommodate between 2 and 200 delegates. Please speak to a member of staff if you would like to view any of the facilities or to discuss any requirements you may have.
Exploring the Local Area
With its central location ideally located between the fells of the Lake District and the Cumbrian coast, there is plenty to see during your stay at Hunday Manor.
The historic harbour towns of Workington and Whitehaven are between 10 and 15 minutes’ drive from the hotel, where you will find a variety of shops and local services.
The popular town of Keswick is around 30 minutes’ drive from the hotel. Here you can take a stroll around the beautiful Derwentwater, explore its many outdoor shops and independent boutiques or simply relax over a cup of coffee.
In the entrance of the hotel you will find a wide selection of brochures and leaflets for local attractions and walks. Alternatively, if you have any questions about the surrounding area, please ask a member of staff who will be more than happy to help you.

For alternative dinner options, we have another two properties locally;
The Galloping Horse is a recently refurbished pub and restaurant only 5 minutes drive away at High Harrington CA14 4NQ. It serves quality pub food Monday-Sunday evenings and lunchtimes at the weekend.
In the Georgian gem which is the town of Whitehaven less than 15 minutes away, we have The Peddler recently-opened restaurant and bar. Located in the historic former Bus Station (postcode CA28 7XE), it serves food and drinks daily and dinner Wednesday-Sunday.
See their websites for more, or Reception will happily provide further information and menus.
Room Service can be ordered by contacting Reception, and a member of staff will be able to provide you with the relevant menu. All of our menus are available to order from, for an additional charge of £5.00 per person.
Parts of Hunday Manor date back to the 18th Century. Built in 1760, it was originally a manor house called High Lodge. Once owned by the Trench Family, the family also used the building for Sunday School meetings.
Between 1951 and 1968 it became a National Coal Board miner’s rescue centre. 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’s only in more recent times that the Hunday Manor became a country house hotel. We at Osprey are delighted to welcome this lovely old property to our family of inns.
