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 cycle storage.

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😀
