PenrithWelcome to our page of accommodation in Penrith! Penrith is an attractive market town originally built around a network of gates through which the townspeople would herd their livestock into the safety of the centre whilst the town was vigorously defended against the Scottish raiders who once terrorised this region. The gates have long gone but the names remain i.e. Middlegate, Stricklandgate. It was in the 9th century that the town of Penrith became the capital of Cumbria, a semi-independent state which until 1070 A.D. formed part of the Kingdom of Scotland and Strathclyde. Penrith boasts a myriad of sights including a large, imposing Norman church, a 13th century castle set in a municipal park with sporting amenities, a beacon on top of a pine clad hill overlooking the town, numerous historic houses and coaching inns with connections to Bonnie Prince Charlie, Richard the III, Wordsworth, Anthony Trolloppe and Samuel Plimsoll. Penrith is a large town acting as a regional centre for the eastern Lake District, lying just outside the National Park. It is an important shopping centre, with a good mix of traditional shops and sophisticated arcades. Local information for Penrith at the bottom of this page.
