The Corner House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 15 Whitehaven B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We stayed at this brilliant B&B the night before we cycled the C2C. When my wife and I arrived it was pouring down - Dave and Leisa couldn't help enough to make sure we got sorted as quickly as possible. They were very attentive but without being intrusive. Excellent. The room was really comfortable and we got a great nights sleep before our bike ride. Breakfast was delicious and we were sent on our way with two gorgeous cupcakes (we devoured these at our first stop!). Superb B&B. Highly recommended. John & Evelin

walked through whitehaven from the train station in the rain to get there - town was fairly dull and depressing. Thisplace was definitly much better though. The bedroom and ensuite were really nice - absolutly spotless and with all the extras - more varieties of shampoo than you could shake a stick at. THe bed was very very comfortable - in fact i'd go as far as to say its the most comfortable hotel bed i've ever experienced - and i've slept in quite a few! Breakfast was nice - full english - all the trimmings. I will definitely return here when i'm in the area again.

We stayed for only one night, in transit from Manchester to St Andrews, to rest and have a look at Whitehaven. The Corner House B&B was the perfect stop over. Leisa and Dave are very welcoming and friendly. They are attentive to their needs of their guests, which was quite refreshing. We both felt very comfortable and relaxed from the moment we walked in the door. The rooms are clean, spacious, loved the old english feel to them. In particular the bathroom is very well decorated. The bath tub was quite large. Loved it.

I booked this B&B after searching reviews on this site and what a wee gem it turned out to be. Leisa and Dave are genuinely nice, honest, decent couple who can't do enough for you. The room was immaculate and very well presented. During our time there my wife was suffering from a really bad head cold and we ended up staying most of the time in the room. Leisa kept us well stocked in teas and coffee. Thank you guys for making the stay really special and for your generosity (the cup cakes were delish). We WILL definitely be back.

Room Tip: There all good....Just book!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Corner House for 3 nights over the august bank holiday and it was fantastic. Leisa and Dave are absolutely fantastic hosts and deserve all of the wonderful reviews on here, and which I am about to add too. I'll try and go in order, the arrival, welcoming and helpful despite us turning up at nearly 11.30pm at night, they were all smiles. Breakfast - mmmmm yum yum, gosh this was delicious, warm croissants, followed by cereal and fruit if you wish, however we saved ourselves for the brilliant cooked breakfast everyday because it was so scrummy, fresh grilled tomotoes and their own eggs from their own hens. We were completely stuffed!! Both Leisa and Dave checked we had everything we needed. The rooms are beautifully decorated and verrrrrrry stylish. We stayed in the Buttermere - which has a large ensuite with a great shower - powerful, nice and hot. Lots fo lovely extras and thoughtful touches throughout the room, shower cremes, cotton wool buds, hairdryers, tea, coffee, water the list is almost endless. They were also great with recommending places to visit and restaurants and bars to eat and drink at. Check out - Le Grande Finale - he he - we got cupcakes on departure whoooppppeeeee. Would definitely stay again and 100% wholeheartedly recommend. Go and stay you will not regret it. We will be back. A BIG thank you to Leisa and Dave.

We were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary and found this b & b online.....What a good find! The room & bathroom were beautifully decorated, well furnished,with a comfy king sized bed, maticulously clean with luxurious accessories. More importantly the hospitality was extremely friendly and welcoming, they couldn't do enough for us. A lovely touch was a pressie for our anniversary along with cupcakes on our departure. A big thank you to Leisa and Dave. Would definitely recommend The Corner House for your stay.

We found this B&B at the last minute to go walking around St Bees. Really enjoyable stay in a lovely room with luxury facilities, we liked all the little details - good choice of teas, water often missing from other B&Bs. The bathroom was really spacious with luxury bath products. It is a nice, quiet location, not far from the centre, we hadn't visited Whitehaven before, but liked the harbour side and Zest restaurant to eat. The owners are friendly and helpful and we also enjoyed the cakes presented to us before we left. Definitely recommend staying here.
