introduction

Victoria Hotel logo

The Victoria Hotel is a family run hostelry with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Extensively renovated in 2006 it features six quality en-suite bedrooms all with digital flat-panel television and tea/coffee making facilities.

The hotel is named after Queen Victoria and to keep the ‘royal theme’ each of our bedrooms are named after her children, Louise, Alice, Leopold, Beatrice, Edward and Alfred.

Your hosts, Belinda Munro and Gordon Wilson and all their staff look forward to welcoming you and will make your stay at the Victoria Hotel a most pleasurable experience.

Location

The Hotel at dawn

The hotel is situated in the village of Drigg on the West Cumbrian Coast. It was built around 1849 to service the Furness Railway that still runs along the coast from Barrow-in-Furness to Carlisle.

If arriving by rail, frequent trains pass by the adjacent station every day with the exception of Sunday. National rail enquiries.

The sand dunes at Drigg are a peaceful nature reserve and are home to what is believed to be Europe’s largest nesting site for black-headed gulls. It is also a sanctuary for rare natterjack toads.

Attractions

Attractions within easy reach of the ‘Vic’ (as it is known locally), include the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway which runs some 7 miles up the Eskdale Valley from Ravenglass to Dalegarth. Muncaster Castle is also nearby with its historic castle and World Owl Trust. The hotel is ideally placed for exploring the western Lake District, particularly the much acclaimed Wasdale Valley.

For the more active visitor, two miles away at Seascale there is a challenging 18 hole links golf course. For the business visitor to Drigg, our hotel stands close to the entrance to the Low Level Waste Repository and is only a 5 minute drive to the Sellafield site.

Our bar carries a good choice of beers, wines and spirits including Jennings bitter, Cumberland ales and regular guest ales. Our kitchen offers traditional home cooked food made on the premises at reasonable prices using locally sourced produce where possible.
