Bank house is a very friendly quiet b And b within walking distance of penrith centre. Great breakfast, nice room and hospitality that you will find hard to beat. Stopped for 1 night on the way up to Scotland. A great choice, will stay again for sure.

Good, quiet location yet only a short distance from the town centre. Very nice room with comfortable beds so we got a good nights sleep. Excellent breakfast each day with a good choice of wonderful local produce. Lovely house with lots of character. We were made to feel very welcome and would not hesitate to return to Bank House.

When you stay in Bank House, you are made to feel so welcome. Home made cakes, bread, and great local produce ensure you have a fantastic gourmet breakfast. The rooms are great too, full of character and charm. You will not be disappointed if you book this wonderful B & B
Sarah also is an artist and many examples of these pictures can be found in the rooms.

Lovely room, spotlessly clean and the bed so comfy. Fantastic views over Penrith, loved the toiletries too! Breakfast excellent and really set us up for another day on our bikes riding the C2C There was also safe storage for our bikes overnight.

The cake that Sarah baked was a Caraway Seed cake and it was delicious, and very welcome! Will be visiting Penrith in the future and will definitely come and stay again, we had a lovely stay.

My husband and I chose Bank House as it was within 3 minutes drive from our elderly Aunt, who we had come to visit in Penrith, but what a wonderful surprise to find such comfort, good food and excellent service from Sarah and Deano.
We were made to feel so welcome.As we had travelled from our home in Spain to spend our first night in such a comfortable bed was sheer bliss! The food was excellent, will book Bank House againon our next visit back to the UK.

Only stayed one night unfortunately but it was perfect - beautifully decorated room with quality furnishings and attention to detail (right down to quality toiletries, towels, etc.). Breakfast was delicious, cooked to order, and with a wide choice, served in another tastefully furnished room with wonderful views over Penrith. Really enjoyed the quality cereals provided and fresh fruit salad as well. Our hostess was friendly and very helpful. Thoroughly recommended. Keep a look out as you drive up the street as the sign is quite small and you may miss it on the first pass, as we did . Carole F,

I just spent a lovely 4 nights at Bank House in Penrith. The house is warm and cosy and the welcome friendly and laid back, the perfect place to come back to after a hard day's sight-seeing. The room was spotless and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, substantial and with a wide choice - I really loved the home-made bread - and there was always coffee and cake to come home to. Bank House is an easy walk into town, with its great choice of shops and restaurants. Very highly recommended. I'm coming back in June!

Room Tip: Bank House is small and intimate and all the rooms are nice.
