Very welcoming, clean, spacious and comfortable b&b. Its location is not far from the town but on a very quiet street. The couple were helpful with where to eat, taxis and even a lift back to get our car in the morning. We were welcomed with tea and homebaking and the breakfast was superb. Fresh and local produce well cooked... More

We just had a one night break over Easter and could not have found more helpful or welcoming hosts. As well as a superb breakfast (which was chosen from a varied and extensive menu) our hosts were always ready to provide us and the other residents with interesting facts about the area and point us in the right direction with...

Spent long weekend at Bank Hs B&B. I have stayed in a couple of B&Bs since my wife always preferred good hotels. I'm now converted - if B&Bs are like this then give me more. What made it special were the host and hostess (Deano & Sarah) so keen to please. We wanted to practise a dance "Ok would you... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Bank House B&B. Sarah & Dean were very welcoming and gave us lots of ideas for things to do in the area and places to eat. We had the larger room which has a great view over Penrith to the fells beyond, and was very peaceful. It is just a short walk into Penrith... More

We stayed for one night on a Saturday in July, so this alone sets it apart from most B&Bs in the Lakes that would require a 2 night stay. We booked direct with Bank House so under the scheme to encourage direct bookings we received a bag of free local hand-made fudge, which was delicious. Breakfast was excellent, all local... More

We needed to be in Carlisle, but from past experience we wanted to spend the night at Sarah Hiscoke's wonderful Bank House B and B in Penrith. Not the cheapest, but certainly the best. Nothing too much trouble. Food, surroundings - absolutely wonderful, and actually terrific value. And such friendly hosts.

Very welcoming and helpful owners, they prepared a beautiful breakfast that had just about everything imaginable. Especially loved the very special creamy slow cooked porridge! Room was impeccably clean and comfortable, overall excellent :)
