Stayed twice for weekend trips and love the place. The owners are really friendly and welcoming, the rooms are comfortable, beds are dreamy, coffee machine and I had a bath both times. Breakfasts are fantastic, fresh fruit and vegy as well as meat cooked breakfast menus. The place is 5 mins walk from Penrith which is a lovely little town,...

I had a lovely surprise when I was told yes when I asked about a room for the night. I have stayed at The Norcroft on many occasions and also I've been told 'no room' quite often. I can imagine that once people experience the quality and the friendliness they stay as often as there is room. I just love...

Without question one of the finest guest houses that I have stayed in and cannot wait to return. From the warm welcome on arrival I knew I was going to be content with my accommodation choice for that night; the room was excellent well decorated, clean and with all you could need including an espresso coffee machine. The bed was...

Shared a twin room, comfortable with nice addition on a coffee machine. Lovely hot bath, complete with toiletries, although in room 5 the cold tap was quite noisy (possibly air in the system) but nothing that really worried me. Tasty breakfast in the morning and very friendly owner, obviously used to cyclists. Clean and good value.

I booked a single room here for one night on my way up to Scotland. For the price I was paying, I expected something rather rough around the edges, but the Norcroft delivered in every way. The room was fairly small, but it was cosy, homely and very clean, and they'd been very clever with the use of space. The...

owner was very friendly and helpful and informative although his partner was less enthusiastic serving breakfast. Must say excellent breakfast. I had booked a single room and was very disappointed overall. The room was top of the house with bed under eaves sloping ceiling made it very enclosed. As the room was very small with a small window didn't have...

Hi Please review, Great little B&B 24 March 2016. Or any other review for the room you stayed in. We do try to offer a complete package to our customers. Whist the room is small it has everything required including a mirror and a new fully working kettle, as for the hair drier, the information book tells you to ask...

Stayed here before when previous owners had it, and new owners are just as good. It is just a shortish walk to the town, and being slightly out of the town centre it is a quiet location. It also has its own small car park which is very useful as many B&B's in the town centre don't have of street...

Stopped at Norcroft with a group of friends on the C2C. The owner is a superb host. We were extremely grateful for his help getting into town to the pub we were heading to for dinner. The breakfast is brilliant with endless choices and excellent preparation.

Stayed one night passing through on a cycle tour. Owner was helpful with the local knowledge of places to eat and drink. The shower was powerful and warm and room was decent in size with comfortable bed. It even had a little tassimo coffee maker in the room. Breakfast was a variety of the standard cooked items and cereals but...

Clean room and ensuite bathroom. Good decorative standard. Excellent breakfasts. Friendly owners and staff. A good central location. A good stop for the C2C. Small car park but you can park out the back as well. Overall good value and worth a visit.
