Good, quiet location yet only a short distance from the town centre. Very nice room with comfortable beds so we got a good nights sleep. Excellent breakfast each day with a good choice of wonderful local produce. Lovely house with lots of character. We were made to feel very welcome and would not hesitate to return to Bank House.

Breakfast was delicious, cooked to order, and with a wide choice, served in another tastefully furnished room with wonderful views over Penrith. Really enjoyed the quality cereals provided and fresh fruit salad as...

It can be a little tricky to find if you're a bit careless with navigating but it's near enough to walk into town yet far enough for...
