Parking is available either on nearby streets or Theatre St Car Park which is a short 50yd stroll away. Dine at Craig's Kitchen at Virginia House with Chef Craig Sherrington of BBC2 Great British Menu 2018 then retire to one of our 8 cosy guest bedrooms, ready for a hearty Cumbrian breakfast the following morning.
