Self-catering holiday accommodation in Penrith
Once the capital of Cumbria, Penrith is now a hub for shopping in the area with many chain brands, as well as a selection of local boutiques and independently-run family stores. The Rheged Centre offers shopping, eateries, cinema and theatre productions in the town, which is a great attraction for locals and holidaymakers alike.
The town isn’t just about its modern facilities though - it has a vast history waiting to be uncovered by those eager to find it. Penrith Castle and Brougham Castle are both ruins in the town for you to visit and there are many other landmarks around the town to find. The town also has its own museum revealing more about the town’s history, geology and archaeology.
Nearby towns such as Kendal and Keswick are also popular larger towns, while the North Lakes offer the more peaceful traditional Lake District tranquillity.
