Penrith is a historic market town acting as a regional centre for the eastern Lake District, lying just outside the Lake District National Park boundary. We are en-route to and from Scotland by road and railway and only 10 miles from the north Pennines. The welcoming town is the hub of the Eden Valley and a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. As well as the wealth of walking and cycling in the area, there are a host of other things to do and places to visit.
Please look through the other pages in this part of our website for more ideas on things to do.
We have also listed below some additional links to other attractions that may be of interest during your stay.
If you have any specific interests or would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
