Over on the far western Cumbrian coast – out of the national park and away from the hills and lakes – lovely Lowther House peers down on the historic Georgian port of Whitehaven, which was one of the UK's busiest trading centres back in the eighteenth century. Owner and Whitehaven enthusiast Trevor Lloyd has fashioned a singular boutique B&B from his charming hillside townhouse, with three cream-and-white double rooms that blend antique furniture and crisp linen with big white modern bathrooms. There's a maritime air thoughout – from the schooner-print wallpaper and seafaring pictures to the distant harbour views – and Trevor is an amiable host willing to go the extra mile for guests. The house is ten minutes' walk from the town centre (you can park right outside) and Whitehaven is a handy base for the western Lakes (with Buttermere only 20 miles away, for example) or the off-the-beaten-track Cumbrian coast.
