Details

A refurbished Victorian school house built in 1866. Now offers 3 ensuite rooms some with baths, queen and king-sized beds and furnished to a high standard. We serve a hearty and extensive breakfast menu, with homemade bread and home-grown tomatoes in season. We are also a licensed premises and dinner is at 19.30, serving a 1, 2, or 3- course meal as desired.

There is also a beautiful garden with mature trees, flower beds, ornamental pond, and terrace where you can take breakfast or dine outside on a sunny day, or just laze the day away sitting in the garden. There are many stone seats and benches to choose from.
The Old School is situated in Newbiggin west of Penrith 0.75miles off the A66, and 2.5miles from M6 jct 40.

We are ideally placed for a stopover to and from Scotland, or for a longer visit to explore the Cumbrian countryside. UIIswater is just 4 miles away with the hills beyond including Helvellyn, Place Fell, St. Sunday Crag, and Blencathra and Saddleback to name but a few.

We are delighted to announce that the Old School was awarded the 2013 Cumbria in Bloom Chairman's Trophy Award for B&B and Guest House of the Year.
