- "Do be sure to book a table for evening meals in advance, as all the locals come here and it’s very popular! Delicious breakfast and dinner, the room it is served in is very well designed and great vibes, location is ideal for Penrith visitors and right by the lakes for sightly views, parking isn’t the easiest but with a little resilience not a problem. I trust we’d use Villa Bianca if we return to this area!"
- "Location was lovely, Penrith town centre literally 2 minute walk, vibe of the town is party-centric and we enjoyed that, but valued the fact Red Townhouse wasn’t in the midst of it, no noises at night heard from the accommodation. Our room had everything we’d needed, good brand toiletries and fluffy towels, extras like chocolates and biscuits, tea making facilities etc. everything was thought out, top notch visit!"
- "Breakfast was lovely and evening meal was extra delicious (perfectly cooked steak), room setup is traditional with nostalgic furniture that sustains durability, all facilities were very clean. Location ideal for train users as it’s short distance to station, town centre also close by. If price of beer was a little lower I’d give it a 10/10. Would re-visit for sure."
- "Very close to the town centre for restaurants/pubs/shopping and excellent owners. My room was immaculate, well furnished and decorated with good quality linens and some nice extra touches. Breakfast has to be one of the best I have had, cooked to perfection. I can't think of anything to complain about. Top marks all round."
- "We used the Brantwood as our base for a couple of days exploring the Lakes and were very pleased with our decision to stay there. It would appear that rooms have recently been refurbished, modern, comfortable and spotlessly clean. On our first night we had a couple of drinks at the bar before having a very delicious meal, breakfasts were good too. A very good value for money stay and we will definitely be returning for a longer one to explore more of this fantastic area."
Penrith was famously the setting of the 1986 comedy film Withnail & I, and whilst the protagonists of the film didn't exactly make the most of their experience, Penrith still has lots to offer for its visitors.
Located on the north-east edge of the Lake District National Park, Penrith is surrounded by incredible scenery and stunning views. The local landscape lends itself well to outdoor activities such as climbing, and the Eden Valley Mountaineering Club draws many of its members from here. The town itself is also full of landmarks and places of interest, such as St Andrew's Church, Penrith Castle and the clock tower in the centre of town.
Penrith is also famous for its pubs, owing to its strong associations with the brewing industry, and so you needn't go far to find a warm welcome and a cool pint!
The town relies heavily these days on tourism, and as such there are many different shops to explore with high street chains alongside independent specialist shops.
Penrith's location makes it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of Cumbria, with Keswick, Ambleside and the lakes of the Lake District all easily reachable by car, and Kendal to the south.
