About Us

Are you sitting comfortably?

Welcome to Cumbria.Guru!

This is a passion project of two born and bred Cumbrians, Alison and Andrew. We are extremely fortunate to live in, in our opinion, the most beautiful county in the UK. Cumbria.Guru is a directory which aims to promote a diverse range of Cumbrian businesses, attractions, beauty spots and activities.

Cumbria.Guru started earlier in the year, when we (two teachers with an inquisitive child) were looking for local things to do with our son. Trip Adviser was ok, but it lacked heart and soul, and some of the things that we were looking for (free activities, for example) weren’t reviewed. Andrew, being a social media and Internet connoisseur, had the initial idea of creating a place to promote all that Cumbria has to offer. Alison has been blogging for four years, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get involved in something about Cumbria!

If you run a Cumbrian business or place of interest, please add yourself to the directory (or claim it if we’ve already got round to adding you). We’ll release a monthly podcast and a weekly blog about Cumbria. Let’s celebrate this amazing county.

Tek care, marras!
