Welcome to Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Workington

Overview

We have been selling and letting properties in the Workington area for many years and as part of our transition to offer improved services to our customers, we became part of the Hunters Estate Agent family in 2019 when our Managing Director, Graeme MacLeod, became the Hunters Cumbria.

This venture enables us to provide the same friendly and local service that all our customers deserve, but with the additional boost of a national brand. Our valuers still provide the same reliable and professional advice, our accompanied viewers still guide potential buyers and tenants with integrity around your property. However, we now have the added support of over 25 property professionals based in our Central Hub in Carlisle.

Our valuers live locally and have extensive knowledge of the area which places us in a very strong position within the local estate agency industry. We are committed to be the number one choice for sales and lettings and offer extended opening hours for the convenience of our clients.

Services

Hunters Workington specialise in residential property sales and lettings in town and within the surrounding towns and villages. We provide a personal service during property valuations and all viewings are accompanied by our experienced and knowledgeable accompanied viewers.

At the point of handling seller and tenant enquiries, progressing sales, and negotiating offers we do this centrally through our Central Hub which is in Carlisle. The Hub has over 25 experienced negotiating staff supporting the branch teams and our customers every single day; this makes us one of the biggest estate agency teams in the region. Our Central Hub allows us to utilise new sales technology and software to assist our business while not taking away any of the personal service in our branch office…no estate agent team works harder for your sale or let.

Contact Us

We would love to know what you have in mind for your next home move, why not give us a call on 01900 872001. You are guaranteed good advice, a personal service, and a warm welcome. The phone lines are open from 9am to 8pm weekdays and until 4pm at the weekend.

Local area guide

The Town

Workington is a historic market town located at the mouth of the River Derwent on the Solway Coast, and yet so close to the Northern Lake District for a real taste of the best of both worlds - you can spend time at the seaside or for the walkers among us, a short drive takes you to the beautiful, yet challenging, Lakeland Fells.

History

Some parts of Workington date back to Roman times and our fascinating history can be explored by a visit to the Senhouse Roman Museum just a stone’s throw away along the coast in Maryport.

Workington’s industrial heritage was reliant on iron and steel manufacture, and coal mining which have since gone into decline. However, the town is immensely proud of its industrial heritage and there are echoes of this past dotted about this bustling town. There is also a splendid 14-acre town centre park called Vulcan’s Park which has family fun days during the warmer months and a cenotaph honouring our fallen soldiers.

Attractions 

Sitting in the heart of the town centre is Curwen Hall, formerly a grand manor house elevated above the River Derwent with its wooded grounds, previously owned by the Curwen family and now a much visited ruin, Curwen Hall gave refuge to a fleeing Mary Queen of Scots as she escaped from Scotland.

Amenities 

Workington is the main shopping centre for the West Cumbria area with a variety of local independent and major high street retailers, there are lots of eateries, bars, pubs and two busy theatres offering a diverse choice of music and drama.

Events

Workington has an annual tradition every Easter of an “Uppies and Downies” match. This is a medieval version of football but has a distinct similarity to rugby. Depending where you live in Workington, you are either an ‘Uppie’ or a ‘Downie’. The game is played with a small leather ball which has to be hailed (thrown into the air) three times at the opposition’s goal. There is no pitch and the game is pure rough and tumble, it is played over several nights and each team can have around a thousand players.

Surrounding Areas

Workington is steeped in history and there are some fascinating period properties on the edge of the town centre. The local village of Seaton which is one of the largest villages in England, has its own primary schools and local amenities which makes it very popular with families and couples. Ashfield and Stainburn are popular suburbs of Workington due to the handy local primary schools and short walking distance into town. Further east are the villages of Great Clifton, Little Clifton, and Bridgefoot. Heading west takes you to the coastal village of Harrington with its own harbour and seaside, adjacent to here is High Harrington with lots of family friendly residential areas and a little further still lies Distington and the more rural village of Gilgarran.

Transport

Workington is a bustling industrial town with convenient transport links to the Lake District towns and to the City of Carlisle.

Education 

There is plenty of choice for primary schools and two major secondary schools in the town centre, St Joseph’s RC High School, and Workington Academy. As Workington is part of the Energy Coast, we are proud to have the Energy Coast University Technical College in the town specialising in the trades required in the local area.
