Your hosts Karen & Alison look forward to extending you a warm welcome to the Blue Swallow Guest House

Ideally situated on the edge of the historic market town of Penrith, the Blue Swallow Guest House is a charming Victorian town house built in 1851.  The guest house offers 7 comfortable and well presented rooms and is within easy walking distance of the town centre, bus and railway stations.

Penrith is situated just outside the Lake District National Park, located at the crossroads of the A66 and M6 (J40). Its central location within Cumbria makes it an ideal spot from which to explore the Lake District, Eden Valley, North Pennines and Hadrian’s Wall.

The C2C cycle route passes through Penrith and the town has been designated Cumbria’s first Cycling Hub. The Blue Swallow offers walkers and cyclists drying facilities and secure cycle storage.

A warm welcome awaits from Karen and Alison!
A very comfortable and homely B&B, clean and tidy. A good night’s sleep followed by a good breakfast. Would stay here again when in Penrith.
The bed was super comfy a nice homely b&b. The hosts were lovely and accommodating. Breakfast was amazing so much choice depending on what you fancy.
With so many Guest Houses to choose from in Penrith, where to start … we chose the Blue Swallow. Turns out the two lovely ladies who own the establishment deliver an amazing, personal, friendly service. Rooms are immaculate and breakfast was perfect. Look no further for a perfect comforty stay in Penrith.
Realy good welcome. Good chat with the hosts. Loved the room and the facilities. Great location in Penrith. Excellent breakfast preceded by a lovely sleep. Set me up for the day.
We have stayed at the Blue Swallow around this time of year for the last 12 or so years. The new owners made us feel very welcome this year, and the room and breakfast were first class. Highly recommended, and thanks very much!
Under new ownership since late 2016, the Blue Swallow provided outstanding service. Room was great, breakfast was excellent, location ideal and the owners were superb. Free wifi, friendly and attentive hosts. It’s only five minutes walk from the main amenities in Penrith. Thoroughly recommended.
We couldn’t have been made more welcome on arrival, the room was lovely and clean and warm, bed was comfortable, fresh milk in the room for tea, just what we needed after getting caught in a snow storm up Skiddaw. Breakfast was absolutely amazing, set us up perfectly for a day out walking … Will be recommending and will most definitely be staying again.
