Situated near the centre of the historic City of Carlisle – The Great Border City – a bustling centre with a strong identity and an uncompromising motto within its Coat of Arms – ‘ Be just and Fear Not’. A Truly independently run hotel, The Cumbria Park enjoys an excellent reputation for high standards of accommodation and cuisine, combined with helpful and friendly service.
We’re an independent family business that has been in the industry collectively for over 20 years. Dean and Brian Barnes, a father and son partnership, successfully took their first business, which was a small bed and breakfast in the Cotswold’s and developed it into an award-winning venue which became a leading Wedding and Conference provider within the area. Following the success experienced in the Cotswold’s the duo wanted to take on a further challenge and an opportunity presented itself in the Lake District. What was initially a ‘tired’ mansion designed and built by the famous Robert Fell in 1787 was carefully restored and developed into a thriving and successful townhouse hotel.
With a growing entrepreneurial taste for the hospitality industry, Dean Barnes leads the family’s latest project.
Our Company mission statement comes second.
In the first place, there is a vision – a dream. It’s where we want to go, what we want to be, why we want to exist there and lastly when we're going to get there. It’s perfectly appropriate for our dream to be unattainable, to be just out of reach. It’s what we reach for.
“It is the ‘vision statement’ of Cumbria Park Enterprises Ltd to be a prominent operator within the midmarket hotel sector throughout the UK within the next 20 years, providing guests with the highest quality of service within the confines of a strict budget.”

IT’S NOT JUST OUR GARDENS THAT ARE GREEN!
The Cumbria Park Hotel embraces Corporate Social Responsibility as part of its duty in helping to protect your environment and encourage those whom we trade to do the same. We strive to play an active part and support the community in which we operate.
All of the Cumbria Park Hotels associates are aware of the policy and are fully supportive in ensuring that proactive efforts and ideas are initiated.
A great example of what the team are doing to go the extra mile is our waste recycling – all cardboard is bailed on-site and collected for recycling along with our glass bottles. Waste oil from the kitchens is converted into diesel engine fuel and organic waste from the kitchens is used for compost in our gardens.
If you get a chance it might be worth looking at our head Chef’s conservatory where he grows fruit and vegetables that are used in the restaurant.
When staying you can help us help our environment by following some basic “Hotel Eco-Etiquette’.
