Bank House Bed & Breakfast
Guest House / B&Bs in Cumbria
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.
