About the neighbourhood
Penrith is a Market Town in a very convenient location for many visitor attractions - close to the M6 motorway and on the main west coast railway line. Although it is only 6 miles from stunning Lake Ullswater it doesn't rely on tourism like Keswick or Windermere. It is a great place for food with lots of cafés, restaurants, pubs, a farmers market, old fashioned grocers shops and modern supermarkets. Near Penrith is the Eden Valley with Lacy's Caves, Long Meg & her daughters, Lowther Castle, Coombs Wood as well as attractions such as Eden Ostrich World, Penrith Laser Wars, Eden Soaring (gliding) and the South Tynedale Railway. You can also visit the Hub museum & Nenthead mines up in the North Pennines.
