The Mansion at Whitehaven.

Whether for work or pleasure, the Mansion Guesthouse has something to suit all purposes and pockets.
If it's a couple of days of business or a relaxing weekend away, we offer unbeatable value and facilities.
We aim to make your stay a real home from home experience.


Unlike a lot of B&B's we have all you might expect from large hotels including a swimming pool sauna and hot tub. We have a large well lit car park and secure cycle storage. Our rooms are en-suite and most have, smart TVs, free high speed Wi-Fi and tea and coffee making facilities. We are now fully licensed and have a new guest bar.

Guests can use the house kitchen, so if you are staying for a while or with a young family you have all the facilities you would have at home. (This is limited during Covid)
Did we mention our 10 metre heated indoor swimming pool, sauna cabin and hot tub, all free to B&B guests and great to help sooth away a long day sightseeing or just a bit of fun to tire the kids out.

The garden offers a terrace to sit and enjoy the view across to Scotland and room for kids to play, guests can also use the BBQ when the weather allows.

Rooms Available

All our rooms feature double beds, most offer the option of an extra single bed providing great flexibility. We also have a family room which offers a comfortable lounge, large main bedroom, separate double bedroom and en-suite shower room, great for families or larger parties.

Our economy rooms are off suite, and are fantastic value when booked direct.
