A WELL-KNOWN hotel in Workington has been put on the market.

The Cumberland Hotel was originally built in 1901 as a commercial hotel serving the centre of Workington and once belonged to Matthew Brown's brewery.

Standing in a prominent trading position between the town and the harbour, the hotel has 29 en-suite letting bedrooms.

It also comes with parking facilities and a spacious two-bedroom flat for the resident owners or manager.

The hotel is being marketed freehold by agents Colliers, on behalf of RSM UK Restructuring Advisory LLP as LPA Receivers.

According to the agents, the business has a net turnover of around £400,000 - and it has significant re-development potential.
