Bank House Bed and Breakfast
Bank House is a beautiful period house with extensive gardens on a quiet street overlooking the lovely town of Penrith, ideally located for touring the Lake District, Eden Valley, Pennines and Hadrian's wall. Our rooms are elegantly decorated and furnished (some with antiques) in keeping with a victorian house.
Bank House is just a short walk into the centre of Penrith in easy reach of shops and restaurants but in a quieter setting with easier parking. We are minutes off the C2C route and have ample storage for bikes. A lovely place to stay for a short or long break and if you are working or need to keep in contact with people we have wireless free internet.
Our aim is to make your stay with us as pleasant and memorable a one as possible either long or short. Recently presented with a Breakfast award from Visit Britain confirming our very high standard. Locally sourced food such as home made bread using milled flour from the Watermill at Little Salkeld, jams and pickles from our famous very local Mr Vikki, as well as Cranstons cumberland sausage, local bacon, and cooked hams black pudding.and locally produced cheeses.
We have ambitions to be greener so as well as using all eco products in the estabslishment we provide Pure Lakes toiletries that are kind to the planet and to you. Bank House gives panoramic views of the Lakeland fells, and we are one of the few houses left with its originaly laid Victorian garden with a variety of trees and shrubs including winter flowering rhodendrons.
