Local area guide

History

Penrith is a thriving and popular market town in the beautiful Eden Valley. The local area is steeped in history and has the imposing 14th century Penrith Castle as its most breath-taking landmark. Ancient monuments dating back to the Neolithic period can be found in the surrounding areas, and the Romans built fort Brocavum two miles south of Penrith and fort Voreda five miles north during their occupation of Cumbria around 70AD. Control of Penrith was passed to Scottish and English kingdoms during periods of conflict with Scotland, but now remains firmly and securely placed as one of the best places in Cumbria. To the north of the town lies Beacon Hill with the beacon monument pinpointing a sublime location to take in the far-reaching panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Much of the older housing in Penrith is constructed from the local sandstone which is a rich red colour rather than the more usual sand colour- locally the town is nicknamed ‘Old Red Town’. The range of property types available in modern day Penrith really does offer something for all tastes and budgets. The town has impressive large Victorian, and imposing Georgian terraced townhouses, and newer semidetached and detached properties on the outskirts of the town. Carleton and Beacon Edge are popular locations for families as they are close to good state primary schools, Hunter Hall independent primary school and has easy access to the amenities in town. The Penrith area also has a range of secondary schools in the independent, state, and special needs sectors.

The Town

The town lies within the Eden Valley; close to The Lake District National Park and the Pennines. Although Penrith is a traditional market town, it has good access (about 1 mile) to the M6 motorway making commuting to larger towns easy, (around 20 miles to Carlisle); the proximity of the motorway also means that heavy traffic does not impact on the local areas and congest the local trunk roads.

Amenities 

The cobbled lanes of the town centre hold a comprehensive range of boutique cafes, pubs, and independent restaurants offering a wide choice of cuisines and refreshments. Penrith is something of a local agricultural hub which enables local growers and producers to sell their produce and artisan foods direct to the public through small, specialist food emporiums. Penrith Farmers’ Market is held once a month (from March to December) to supply the town with handmade crafts, culinary specialties, and fresh seasonal produce. The town also has a varied selection of independent shops and larger national high street brands to cover all your requirements.

Penrith has a well-stocked public library, a community hospital with an urgent treatment centre that is open 24 hrs a day and runs specialist clinics, a choice of medical practices, a fire station, and a good leisure centre with a pool, gym, sports hall, and soft play area for the younger customers.

Surrounding Areas

Castletown area to the west of the railway line has a mixture of older terraced housing and newer housing developments offering a range of property styles and prices, our Hunters Penrith area includes the Roundthorn, Redhill, Carleton, and Pategill areas of the town and beyond to the outlying areas of Stainton and Newbiggin to the west, Southwaite and Cotehill to the north, Kirkland to the east and Appleby in Westmoreland to the south.
