Thanks for a lovely over night stay. We were welcomed at the door even tho we didn't arrive till 8.40pm. It was just a short stay for us but was a lovely relaxing evening.rooms very nice and was very impressed by the king size bed we had. Breakfast was delicious, lots of choice and the cooked breakfast was lovely. Thanks... More

This is a lovely house. The rooms are impeccable and high quality. The breakfast is simply outstanding - the owner is a very good cook. We also ordered a packed lunch for a very long train journey home. Very good with excellent home made cakes. If you need a lunch, go for it. Its a great location. The rooms are... More

We stayed for 2 nights and are very fussy eaters. I am veggie, my husband is coeliac and veggie. This was no problem at all. The room was immaculate. Handy location, parking easy. A lovely stay, thank you.

We have been travelling heavy with burdened luggage by train all across England and Scotland. Brandelhow was the first place where we truly felt welcome and wanted. The owners were kind, warm, and welcoming. They agreed to watch our bags when we arrived early the first day and offered to take care of them for our late departure as well.... More

A B&B that we will definitely be re-visiting when we travel to the Lakes again. We stayed for 3 nights during half term whilst we travelled the Lake District. Clean and comfortable room with attention to detail to ensure your stay is comfortable & stress free. Fantastic breakfast suited to individuals - Our breakfast kept us going through our Scafell...

I was on my way to Ben Nevis from London, so I picked Penrith as a logical stop on the way. It was for one night only but I wanted something more than a Travelodge. The Brandelhow Guest House exceeded my expectations. There was a very warm welcome! Penrith has a weird parking policy. You need "Parking Discs" that have... More

Very smart townhouse in superb condition very close to town. We managed to park right outside. Room quiet and spotlessly clean, with really good carpet, curtains, linen etc. Comfortable bed. We booked on their own website which means you can choose which room you have (all different, with pics). Breakfast excellent (imaginative choice and good quality) but a bit hushed.... More

What a find! This lovely B&B is just a few minutes walk from Penrith station. The owners were very welcoming. The room was charming, had everything I could possibly need and was very clean. Breakfast in the morning was a veritable feast. Veggie breakfasts can be a bit hit and miss but this was lovely. Just sad I couldn't eat... More

We had a very pleasant comfortable stay at the Brandelhow. We only stayed 1 night but we felt very welcome and were greeted warmly by the owners. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the kingsize bed made for a good nights sleep. There was a good selection for breakfast and my husband particularly liked the dried fruit compote... More

Absolutely loved my two night stay in this lovely guesthouse. Super room with lots of extras that were 'over and above' including fluffy bathrobes, classy shower products and mini fridge with bottled water. Delicious breakfast choices served by a friendly, very helpful host. Highly recommend and fully intend to return.
