The Blue Swallow Hotel in Penrith is lovely. My partner and I only stayed one night, but it's left a lasting impression on us. The room was really comfortable and just what we needed after a long drive up the M6 from our home in Wiltshire via a visit to Wolverhampton to call in on my Dad who's 95.
Being directed to the cellar which had been converted into a dining room was a surprise. Never had that experience before and breakfast was great, a lovely selection of cereals, fruit juice and home made jams as well as fruit salad.
I have a journal of places that we have visited and this is in it ready for the next time we venture up North.
