Bank House Bed & 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 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. Recently presented with our second Breakfast award from Visit England confirming our very high standard.Locally sourced food such as home made bread using stone ground 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 four lovely airy rooms. Beautifully decorated each with its own spacious en-suite all having double sized showers. Each Room has been equiped with restored beds with upholstered bases and high quality mattresses. The cotton bedding. (our own linen which we launder ourselves using environmentally approved products). In each room there is a digital flat screen tv with free view and a DVD, hairdryer, coffee and tea making facilities and alarm. In your en-suites we provide handmade toiletries from Pure Lakes based in the Lake district, made with sustainably sourced ingredients including organic sunflower and coconut oils, Aloe Vera and pure essential oils. 'Natural skin care that doesn't cost the earth'. These are large refillable bottles (no small difficult containers which are difficult to open and don't hold very much).

We also supply a generous amount of towels and flannel. You will find cotton pads and cotton buds along with other toiletries in the ensuite. We also stock a few emergency supplies. just in case.
