Paul Lamb and the team at Norcroft Guest House, Penrith extends a warm invitation for you to come and stay with us. Built in the 1860s as the school master's house for the Girls National School, the house was expanded some 20 years later. In the 1920s it was converted into 4 flats and in the late 50s the house was split into the two houses (yes, we are a semi) that you now see. The Norcroft has been run as a guest house for 25–30 years.
We offer a high standard of accomodation, all en-suite, in which to unwind after your journey.
Safe motorcycle parking
Our car park, which is at the rear of the house, can take up to 9 cars, so plenty of room for safe, off-street motorcycle parking,
Enjoy a relaxing drink in our lounge, before a short walk into Penrith itself to enjoy the excellent range of pubs and restaurants you will find there.
In the event of damp weather (surely not in a British Summer!) we have a drying room for your clothes.
We have a total of nine rooms in all, and can sleep up to 22 people in en-suite comfort.
- Please also note that the Norcroft is strictly non-smoking within the building and rooms.
We have one single room.
We have two family rooms - Both of these are double-bedded rooms with bunk room annexes.
The rest of the rooms can be configured to be either twin or double rooms - you tell us!
This room can either be a triple-bedded room, or a double with a single bed.
All rooms are en-suite, some with showers, some with bath/showers, all have colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities.
Our location is the perfect for exploring the Lake District, Northumberland and Southern Scotland, all of which can be reached within an hour or so's ride.
