Hotels and Bed and Breakfast in Penrith

Penrith is just beyond the north-eastern reaches of the Lake District National Park. Easily accessible from the M6, this charming market town used to be the area’s capital. The town has a number of interesting attractions, not least of which is the Church of St Andrew’s, a stunning building dating from 1720. You can also while away an afternoon exploring the shops along the main streets, not to mention the secretive alleyways and yards that also hold arcades.

Penrith Castle

Another nearby sight worth looking for is Penrith Castle. This is a ruin but an impressive one at that. Dating from medieval times, it is managed by English Heritage. A visit will take you across the now-dry moat and right up to the ruins.

Of course, with the Lake District National Park nearby, anyone staying in a Penrith B&B will have an easy journey to reach some of the best sights in the Lake District. Lake Ullswater and its famous steamers are about half an hour away, while it takes less than an hour to reach the pretty village of Ambleside and nearby Lake Windermere.

As such, it makes the ideal base for anyone wanting to explore the Lake District in further detail. You’re never too far from anything, and there are plenty of varied Penrith B&Bs in the area too. From more basic and affordable options through to high-quality choices with all the perks you are looking for, Penrith B&B accommodation is available to suit everyone.
