After a mizzly drizzly drive up in the rain from West Yorkshire it was a joy to have a great warm welcome upon arrival!

Our room was great, the hospitality amazing and we can't wait to come back!

The hostess with the mostess even gave us some legendary fudge to take away on our onward journey to Centerparcs! ;-)

We arrived for an early check in which was no problem at all for Dawn who was so welcoming. We were given a choice of rooms and took the first shown to us as it was beautiful. We had a double room with ensuite shower room. The bed was comfy and the room immaculate. Dawn even gave us a parking pass and gave us a lift to a nearby hotel where we were going to a wedding. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. Central location, walking distance to town. Reasonably priced for great accomodation!

I booked here for my first stop on C2C bike ride. After cycling for over 8 hours the welcome was very warming and this was 20:30 at night. I had a room with a bath which was a very much needed supprise. Because of my travel i just needed sleep which i got with a comftable bed.I am sure if i needed anything then i only needed to ask and i would have been helped.
Next morning i got up to a lovely breakfast.
Only stayed just over twelve hours which was to short to enjoy this B&B. Hope to return and enjoy it more.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of August. After seeing family in Scotland we'd decided to break up the journey on the way back and stay in Penrith to see some of the Lake District. Crosby is everything you want from a B&B - lovely house, room, comfy bed, good ensuite with a great shower and everything spotlessly clean. Not only that but also a truly fabulous breakfast. Dawn the owner cooks up a storm and could not have been more friendly. We're so glad we stayed here as deciding to see the Lake District was a last minute thing and we chose Penrith to avoid the crowded southern lakes. It was a good decision, Ullswater lake is just stunning and there's also a place nearby called Askham Hall gardens which is picture postcard perfect and has a wonderful café to boot.

The first night in Penrith we took pot luck in town for dinner and had a dire meal at a local Italian restaurant. The second night we drove to nearby Clifton on our way back from a boat trip at Ullswater and had an early dinner at the George and Dragon. Wonderful food and if you're staying in Penrith, highly recommended.

We stayed here for two nights as we had a wedding nearby. Crosby B&B really is a lovely place to stay. We had a great room which was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and very comfortable (and in the midst of a heat wave it was nice and cool too). The breakfasts were fantastic with a great selection and in a lovely setting. The owners were so lovely and I will definitely be staying here again if I visit Penrith.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Crosby bed and breakfast for 2 nights. We checked in and were shown straight to our room by Dawn who was very friendly & welcoming upon our arrival. Our room and bathroom was very spacious and clean and decorated to a good standard. We felt comfortable & relaxed immediately and the bed was exceptionally comfortable in our room. Breakfast was very nice and set us up for the day. Dawn was very friendly but not in your face. The house is around 5-10 min walk from the centre which is ideal as we didn't want to stay in the centre. All in all I would recommend and certainly stay at the Crosby B&B again.
