A charming hotel near the Lake District, with treats on arrival, breakfast and three-course dinner

The George Hotel in the historic town of Penrith is perched at the gateway to the Lake District National Park, giving you direct access to its spectacular mountains and shimmering lakes. Its location is perfect for long idyllic walks and robust rambles.

A traditional and thoroughly English affair with plenty of character, this relaxed and welcoming hotel offers hearty dining with a fantastic wine selection and a cosy lounge for scones and tea. The building is over 300 years old, so there are lots of quirky little original features which only add to its charm. The George has also been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
