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 parking. We are minutes off the C2C (coast to coast) route and have ample storage for bikes. This is a lovely place to stay for a short or long break. If you are working or need to keep in contact with people we have free wi fi.
Our aim is to make your stay with us as pleasant and memorable one as possible either long or short.
