under new ownership since late 2016, the Blue Swallow provided outstanding service. Room was great, breakfast was excellent, location ideal and the owners were superb, Free wifi, friendly and attentive hosts. It's only five minutes walk from the main amenities in Penrith. Thoroughly recommended.

Couldn't have wished for nicer or more helpful hosts. Always ready to offer advice on places we wanted to visit. Lovely location, not too far from local amenities and fairly central to tourist attractions. Rooms were well decorated and very comfortable. We stayed here for 7 nights and would highly recommend.

We stayed here on our trip to the Lake District in England one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. Both this place and Penrith deserved more time. Our hosts could not have been kinder, their guesthouse delightful. Room was spacious, clean, bright, and was ensuite. English breakfast was generous and the perfect way to start our day. Definitely going...

Doing the usual trick of forgetting my gear at the guest house, Peter and Cynthia returned my jacket promptly to my home...

Staying here as part of a coast to coast leg the guesthouse is situated near the main road into the centre although the property is well insulated from the noise. The accommodation was clean and bed very comfy with a tv and en suite. The breakfast was super tasty and served in the lower basement which was really enjoyable. The...
