We are proud to offer a fully relationship managed service with a single point of contact from day one.

About The Cumberland

Established in 1850, we’re a building society run for the benefit of our customers.

Our purpose is to provide a banking experience that’s kinder to people, planet and community.

We treat people with warmth, and respect their dreams and ambitions. We look beyond the numbers to help them build a stable foundation for a life they truly love, whether they’re starting a mortgage, starting a business, or starting retirement.

We see kindness as a strength – and if that means we swim against the tide, so be it. To us there is no other way. It’s just who we are. Smarter, stronger, kinder banking. It’s in our nature.

We have branches located across Cumbria, Southwest Scotland, West Northumberland, and North Lancashire.

In addition to our specialism in hospitality lending, we also offer:

• Business and personal current and savings accounts
• Residential mortgages
• Vehicle finance provided by Borderway
