Foundry 34

34 Burrowgate, Sandgate, Penrith, CA11 7TA
Foundry 34 Outside

Offering boutique style accommodation without the over-inflated prices, the Foundry 34 is an independent hotel and restaurant that is conveniently located in the centre of Penrith. The hotel offers 10 stylish and modern rooms along with an award winning restaurant. As this is a town centre hotel, there is no parking, but guests can park for up to one-hour on the street outside of the hotel for unloading, before moving to a nearby public car park that will cost just under £5 per day. The hotel’s owners also advise that due to the town centre location noise can be a factor, especially at the weekend late at night.

Foundry 34 is a great hotel for those seeking to explore the Lake District on a budget. The hotel is close to the train station, and a number of bus services run from the town centre to various points of interest, including to Glenridding and Pooley Bridge for Ullswater and Keswick for Derwent Water. Penrith and the surrounding area is rich in medieval history with Brougham Castle ruins within walking distance of the hotel.
