Welcome to Cornerways Guest House

Cornerways is a unique centrally located Grade II listed Victorian family owned Town House nestled in a lovely tree lined road in a quiet conservation area. We are only 5 minutes’ walk to many excellent restaurants, bars, shops the railway & bus stations. We are equally popular with tourists & walkers, alongside a range of visitors coming to Carlisle for a variety of events, business or just a romantic break. Some 170 years old, Cornerways retains many of its original Victorian features including a 'Minton' tiled hallway and cast-iron balustrade to the stairway. Our rooms are tastefully decorated merging contemporary style alongside Victorian architecture. Our rooms & hospitality have earned us a prestigious 4-Star Silver Visit England Award across our selection of accommodation which includes En suite single, twin, double & King rooms. Each room has an individual design & incorporates a wide screen TV with Freeview channels, a tea tray, comfortable chairs and free Wi-Fi. Our tasty breakfasts include the Traditional Full English, Buttery Smoked Kippers as well as a selection of Vegetarian, Vegan & Gluten Free foods. We offer delicious ‘bean to cup’ speciality Rijo Coffee, a selection of chilled drinks & bottled water. For guests who need a very early start we provide a chilled takeaway breakfast sandwich or for guests wandering off the beaten track we can provide freshly made hearty packed lunches.
