Hotels, hostels, B&Bs, holiday rentals, campsites and boarding houses for commercial use must remain closed to help reduce social contact and limit the spread of Coronavirus. However, there are exceptions for key workers.

The information on this database is for the sole-purpose of linking key workers in need to Cumbrian businesses who may be able to accommodate them. Please see the guidance for NHS staff below.

Some of the below properties will be charging reduced rates and some will be able to offer accommodation free of charge. If you need any further help identifying accommodation that suits your needs, please get in touch with us by email at and we will do our best to help.

Please be aware that:

  • When liaising with a provider, they will request verification of key worker status through the confirmation of your employer or through evidence of ID.
  • Not all accommodation providers listed are members of Cumbria Tourism and as such, they will not have signed up to our code of conduct. Therefore, we cannot guarantee any of the products or services offered by the participating providers.


NHS staff with accommodation needs are advised to contact their Trust Accommodation team for support:

  • Staff from North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust can contact the team through the details found on the NCIC staff webpages.
  • Staff from Morecambe Bay NHS Hospitals Trust should contact or 01524 519700 for support.


If  you are a provider able to house key workers and wish to be added to this database, please complete this form. Remaining open to provide for key workers does not affect the business’ ability to furlough staff, receive business rates relief or receive the grant fund. If you have any further queries, please contact

Please note: accommodation providers in Cumbria who wish to provide for NHS staff specifically should register with the Government maintained NHS central database by also contacting:
