“Friendly, great hospitality and good value for money”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Our Scottish team stayed at the Acorn during a company charity event which involved cycling 258 miles in 26 hours over two days (they cycled from Glasgow to Manchester).

The Acorn’s warmth, hospitality and friendliness made all the difference to the team, who had cycled nearly 111 miles before reaching the hotel that day, and everyone who stayed over said that the place was great, the meal good and the service outstanding - so very well done.

Room Tip: We called the Hotel in advance of the booking for some local information on best restaurants to eat...

Staff were perfectly jolly and helpful. Clean and comfortable and offered secure bicycle storage and dry room for rain-sodden clothes. Lovely breakfast. Perfect location for other c2c riders. Walking distance to restaurants and pubs.

We had pre booked The Acorn for the first stop over on our C2C bike ride. A lovely warm welcome and help to take in 6 yucky bikes. Clean and comfortable bedrooms and a perfect drying room for our soggy gloves, shoes, jackets etc followed by fantastic breakfast the next morning. What more could you ask for!

Stayed here as a group of 10 doing the C2C on May Bank Holiday......
Rooms were clean comfortable and supplied everything that was needed....en suite was ideal and good location into Penrith....food,pubs etc....
The welcome was great and had the impression that nothing was too much bother... Breakfast was great and the 7 week old puppy was just gorgeous.....
Criticisms.....only that the walls in the rooms are paper thin, fortunately I don't think that any of our party were criticising each other...the puppy crying was different but it will grow out of it..
Overall a good stay....thank you

I've just stayed here as I had to attend a funeral in Penrith, the rooms are a good size and spotless. Nothing was too much trouble, parking right outside, tea, coffee tv, on-suite large spotless bathroom. It's right on the coast to coast route as well. Can't thank the owners (Joyce and family) for the sensitivity they showed me during my stay. I am happy to,recommend this b&b to anyone,it really would be hard to beat !

Needed a stopover on the way back from a family wedding in Scotland and were lucky enough to be directed to The Acorn by a local publican.
Really clean and comfortable room in a lovely town. Anita and Joyce are really welcoming and friendly but the star of the show was the breakfast! Fresh, quality ingrediants served with as much tea/coffee/orange juice and toast as you wanted.

Would highly recommend and will definately return in the future
