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.

We have just returned from a couple of nights away at Brandelhow, and I am pleased to say we had a very pleasant time staying there. On arrival we were invited by the owners for cakes and drinks, and given the cakes that didn't use lard (as we are vegetarian), which just goes to show the attention to detail here.... More

Just stayed for one night only wish it was longer. The hosts could not do enough to help us. Rooms were excellent in both facilities and decoration standard. Breakfast was also really good quality food with an excellent choice. I would recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting this lovely place, you will not be disappointed with any aspect of...

We stayed at Brandelhow last week for four nights. Both Mel and Lanie made us most welcome. A delightful guest house in prime location near the centre of Penrith, less than a 5 minute walk away. Everywhere and everything was spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were not only beautifully cooked but immaculately presented and absolutely delicious - a great start... More

We recently had a very enjoyable stay at the Brandelhow Guest House. The standard of accommodation was very high indeed. Our room was spotlessly clean, very spacious (we booked a family room on a double occupancy basis) and extremely comfortable. The owners of the guest house were very friendly and helpful and it was obvious that they care that their... More

If you find yourself in Penrith, I recommend you stay here. It is a short work to the town centre (5 mins) and station (10 mins) and easily accessible from throughout the town. The room was quaint, spotless and very comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and happy to help with whatever I needed. I stayed here during my birthday,... More
