We stayed at Crosby while attending a family wedding at Askham Hall. We made a weekend of it staying 3 nights in the lovely family room, Dawn was very welcoming and was able to recommend restaurants and taxis which was very useful. The room was spotless with comfy beds and a nice shower room.

Arrived later than anticipated on the Thursday night but still received a warm welcome. The rooms were spotless. Next morning the breakfast was lovely and hot and plenty of choice. We had the dining room to ourselves as the other guests had had an earlier breakfast. We only stayed one night on our way to Carlisle for my sons graduation... More

On arrival all was good... Nice room and good location. However after time it appeared I was given no basic information. I was also made to feel like a child. Told by dawn on numerous occasions to lock the door correctly and switch my hair straightners off (who would have thought I was thirty next and recently married), I travelled... More

My fiancé and I stayed at The Crosby on 23rd April 2014 whilst cycling C2C. Fantastic bike lock up. Gorgeous peaceful room, beautiful bath & comfy bed. Breakfast was delicious especially the homemade lemon curd! The Crosby is a true Oasis in Penrith. Highly recommend .

After a mizzly drizzly drive up in the rain from West Yorkshire it was a joy to have a great warm welcome upon arrival! Our room was great, the hospitality amazing and we can't wait to come back! The hostess with the mostess even gave us some legendary fudge to take away on our onward journey to Centerparcs! ;-)

We arrived for an early check in which was no problem at all for Dawn who was so welcoming. We were given a choice of rooms and took the first shown to us as it was beautiful. We had a double room with ensuite shower room. The bed was comfy and the room immaculate. Dawn even gave us a parking... More
