RhegedPenrith is a bustling historic market town nestling in the Eden Valley and just outside the boundary of the Lake District National Park and is a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. Penrith offers a good mix of unique specialist shops offering local produce and crafts, traditional shops and arcades. With its distinctive red sandstone buildings, numerous ‘yards’ and alleyways to discover and many pleasant open spaces, Penrith remains a traditional market town.

The town has much to offer including a lovely walk through the wooded slopes of Beacon Hill to the Beacon "Pike" Monument, which was built in 1719 of local red sandstone. This rewards you with great views over the town and Lake District fells beyond.
