For someone on their own I was happy to be welcomed so sincerely. There was even an offer to drop off my luggage at the train station!!!! Staff were engaging & genuinely seemed interested in what the patrons were up to. An elderly lady who came into the dining roomwas treated with respect & dignity. Terrific place to stay!! ES,...

Found the Norcroft on the website of The Wood Workshop, where I'm attending a course in furniture making. Paul made me most welcome and even invited me out to a tapas night at a local restaurent with other guests! Will definitely come back here when I return to Penrith!

Stayed at the Norcroft for a couple of nights and was well pleased with the very welcoming Paul and team, really delivered on service. breakfast was great we are a tad fussy but nothing was a problem. The room was spacious, warm and lots of hot water. Good recommendations for local dining all within easy reach. Would definitely use again... More

We where on a cycle trip round the Lake District and stayed here the first night. The accommodation was great; Paul and staff where very friendly and helpful, ideally had a safe location to store our bikes at night. Also centrally located for a work down the high street\centre where there where enough places for dinner and a few drinks.... More

On arrival, my heavy bag lifted, shown my room, clear directions to interesting areas nearby. I liked the comfortable space and the staff were open and friendly, not tired of tourists. Breakfast was overwhelming generous. the B and B was also warm.

A warm welcome from owner and friendly,attentive staff at breakfast. Large room with clean modern en-suite. Not modern decor, but that would not suit the building. Bed very comfortable. We stayed for 3 nights and even though most rooms were taken we never heard anybody coming or going. We always managed to be able to park in the car at... More

We (family with two grown children) spent two nights at Norcroft, one each at the beginning and end of our week-long cycling tour of the lake district. Our room was very nice and spacious, with a comfortable bed and a new bathroom with a luxurious shower. I didn't investigate the children's room but they didn't complain about anything. The best...

Thanks to an engine problem I got stuck in Penrith on a Sunday night. The garage pointed me towards Norcroft so I gave them a bell. As they had no guests that night the proprietor Paul Lamb was socialising with friends for the evening in Penrith. He put that to one side to save my bacon and check me in... More

We booked a room at relatively short notice (a week beforehand) after we decided against our pre-planned B&B in Carlisle. I'm glad we booked when we did, otherwise we would have missed out on this great B&B - there were no vacancies when we got there. We had a double room with a very large comfortable bed. The bathroom was... More

Not a typical review, but I hope a useful comment on the Norcroft. On riding my bike into Penrith at 5:45pm on a Friday night, the chain split and mangled the rear mechanism. Paul was a absolute star, his reaction was - put the bike on the back and I will take you straight round to Halfords (where I bought... More
