A gem of a B&B in the heart of Penrith. A warm welcome awaits you. A very clean and comfortable bedroom and an outstanding breakfast will set you up for the day ahead. Easy street parking and plenty of choices for evening meals within in 10 minute walk. What more do you need?

Stayed at the Crosby on the way to Scotland. Excellent accommodation and Breakfast, very clean and the owner went that extra to ensure everything was to the highest standard. Would certainly be our first choice if we are in the area again.

We stopped over in Penrith and chose Crosby because of the family room. The B&B is very clean and tidy and is tastefully decorated throughout. Our room had a double and two singles with plenty of room and good tea/coffee making facilities. The host was very friendly and easy to talk to. There was a good choice of food, I...

Easily the best B&B we have stayed in. We arrived late at night and Dawn's porch light was a warmly lit oasis on a dark street. The rest of the stay followed in much the same way. Dawn made us feel instantly at ease when she opened the door and the house itself is wonderful with big rooms and gorgeous...

We were welcomed warmly and made to feel at home right from the start. The room was very pretty and clean with everything you would need for an overnight stop. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice. I would definitely recommend the Crosby for a stay in the Lake District.

We had a truly lovely stay at Crosby's at the end of September. Dawn was very welcoming, and the accommodation is within close walking distance of the town. Our room was spotless and we had plenty of room both in the bedroom and the bathroom. The bed was very comfy and all the linens used where lovely. I would definitely...

not stayed here before, but knowing the town well I was recommended to this cosy B&B. The position of the B&B is close to the ton, but far enough away to be nice and quiet. Parking is easy enough, and I was able to walk easily into the town where there are plenty of eating places to choose from.
