Kick Off Your Muddy Boots and Settle in to One of the B&Bs, Penrith

While the town has several hotels, nothing beats staying in a Penrith bed and breakfast. Maybe it's the feeling of staying in a home away from home or the knowledgeable owners, many of whom have run their B&Bs for decades. Perhaps it's the difference in cost or the unique character of the guestrooms, compared to bland hotels. The best place to find the perfect match is on Expedia, which lists every B&B, along with candid photos and descriptions. Just filter the search by your date and budget, then let Expedia do the hard work for you. The bed and breakfasts in Penrith are as diverse as the owners who run them. Some are traditional little family-run properties with just a handful of rooms and back gardens that provide a little oasis away from the bustling centre. Others are a little more swish, housed in ancient stone cottages with original exposed features, cosy fireplaces and dining conservatories. It doesn't matter whether you're looking for a budget B&B where you can kick your muddy boots off and warm up after a day out walking in the national park or a more luxurious experience, Expedia has got you covered.

Checking in to your Penrith bed and breakfast is always a breeze and as you settle in to your room, you'll find the sort of amenities that you might expect from a hotel. Most have facilities for making hot drinks, a TV mounted on the wall and lots of storage for your belongings. You'll find some have ensuite facilities stocked with toiletries while others have shared bathrooms. If you have specific needs, like family-sized or pet-friendly guestrooms, you won't have any trouble finding them on Expedia. Every morning, you can get a good start to the day with a full English breakfast, porridge, or something lighter, like pastries or fruit, all washed down with freshly brewed tea and coffee. Have you thought about combining your Penrith getaway with a few days in the Northern capital of Manchester?
