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 :)

We were looking for a B&B which would break our journey to the Highlands of Scotland and Bank House more than fitted the bill. It is conveniently situated about a 10 minute drive from the M6. The property sits on the bend of a steep hill in half an acre of beautiful gardens. We were greeted with a friendly welcome... More

We have just returned from Penrith, staying 3 nights at Bank House. What a wonderful B and B. Sarah and her husband were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were lovely.. We tried different food each morning and each time we were not disappointed. Try the smoked salmon and scrambled egg and porridge "Bank House style". Delicious. Our room (3) was... More

We stayed at Bank House for a weekend in August, a Saturday and Sunday night. The bedroom was lovely, overlooking the garden. The room and the en-suite were spotlessly clean and the bed was comfy. Hosts were welcoming, with lots of local knowledge if you need it, however they gave you space too so you didn't feel smothered or uncomfortable.... More

Stayed for a night on 19/09/14 and wow. Lovely house in a excellent quiet location overlloking Penrith and up towards the Lakes. Sarha and her husband are extremely friendly and welcoming and gave us some good hints on local places to eat. The room was clean and well laid out with coffee and tea, robes and towels. Breakfast was superb... More
