Hotels, hostels and other accommodation should only open for those who have to travel for work purposes and for a limited number of other exemptions which will be set out in law:

A person (providing visitor accommodation) may continue to carry on their business and keep any premises used in that business open—

(b) to provide accommodation for any person who needs accommodation for the purposes of their work

(c) to provide accommodation for any child who requires accommodation for the purposes of education

(d) to provide accommodation for the purposes of a women’s refuge or a vulnerable person’s refuge

(f) to provide accommodation for any person who was staying in that accommodation immediately before these Regulations came into force

(g) to host blood donation sessions

(h) for any purpose requested by the Secretary of State, or a local authority.

The information on this database is for the sole-purpose of linking those travelling for work (or other exemptions to the restrictions as noted above) to Cumbrian businesses who may be able to accommodate them. Please see the specific guidance for NHS staff below.

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.

  • When liaising with a provider, they may request confirmation from your employer and/or require evidence of ID.
