Due to the Appleby Horse fair (no hotels in Appleby), we had to start our final leg of the Pennine Way from Penrith. The Bank House Bed and Breakfast provided a great start with an excellent breakfast. The host even managed to sort out our Taxi to get to our walking starting point when it appeared the horse fair was going to make like very difficult.

It was a wonderful place to stay, made particularly special by the lovely hosts. We felt more like guests in their home than people paying to stay in a B&b. The place was spotless, the beds were really comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. There was also cake left in the fridge! All the food was locally sourced. We made use of the gazebo on the garden one evening which was perfect.

Our hosts were so friendly, and helpful with garaging our bikes. The room was comfortable, it caught the evening sun, beautiful. Lovely garden to relax in too. Best breakfast for ages, e.g. granola and yogurt and compote, home made bread, special marmalade!
