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 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.
Penrith is a cycle friendly town with the classic C2C, Lakes & Dales loop, LEJOG and National Routes 7 & 71 passing through. The Blue Swallow offers walkers and cyclists drying facilities and cycle storage.
We wanted to thank you for making our stay at the Blue Swallow special. Our room was lovely and comfortable, and the fabulous breakfast kept us going as we trudged through the mud at Kendal Calling!
Lovely place and lovely ladies! Thank you for all the warm and welcoming touches. The food was delicious.

A big thank you for a lovely stay at your guest house. Your flapjack helped me on a hard days cycling. Thank you so much!
We had a really lovely stay here doing the C2C. When we returned after the last day it felt like coming home. The flapjack was the icing on the cake!
Thank you so much for an amazing stay – very clean, helpful and warming and breakfast was great!
Another brilliant stay – see you next year!
So very welcoming, warm, sooo comfortable. Delicious home baking and cuddly puppy as a bonus. Thank you!
Just wanted to say no wonder you get such rave reviews. From the moment I dropped off my case Karen and Alison could not have been more helpful. My room and facilities were spotless, and so many extra touches. From fresh milk in little milk bottles for the room along with homemade tablet and cakes. Breakfast options were great plus home made marmalade. They even arranged a taxi and gave me a flapjack for my journey. 5 stars are obvious more are due, would go back in a heart beat, many thanks and continued success Rhona?
