Penrith

This charming town is set in the picturesque Lake District in the Eden Valley in the county of Cumbria and within easy distance to both the stunning sights of Bowness-on-Windermere and the exciting city of Carlisle. The Eden Valley is a lush and green area full of mountain landscapes and charming villages as well as the babbling River Eden. Travelers often visit this area for the abundance of outdoor activities on offer, from simple strolls to mountain biking, fishing and much more.

The town itself is mostly made of red sandstone from the local area, giving a unique and warm feel. There are plenty of quaint pubs and excellent restaurants to choose from in town, and a famous market, which is held once a week. The Lake District is also one of the most famous areas and tourist attractions in England, famous for its pristine countryside and unbeatable lakeside walks and lake cruises.

We love Penrith because...

  • Stunning mountains
  • Outdoor activity fun
  • Lakeside walks

In and around Penrith

Aira Force

These spectacular waterfalls cascade down from an astonishing 70 metres. Travellers can view the waterfall from a variety of spots including the two fascinating footbridges. The area and the waterfalls have been immortalised by the ‘bard of the lakes’ William Wordsworth in many of his poems. There are a number of footpaths in this area to be explored and we recommend bringing a picnic and turning it into a full day trip.

Lowther Castle and Gardens

This spectacular building looks out across the stunning landscape of the Lake District and provides visitors with over 130 acres of well-maintained ground for exploration, including secret gardens, viewing spots and woodlands. The castle underwent one of the largest renovations ever to have taken place in Europe in 2011 and is now open to the public for viewing.

Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre

This wonderful centre houses over 150 owls, falcons, hawks, eagles and other birds of prey from the British Isles and abroad. There are daily exercise exhibitions that are marvellous to behold as they twirl in aerial acrobatic and in this natural environment. The castle was erected in the early 19th century and belongs to the Earls of Lonsdale.
