Christmas is a time for celebrating before, during and after we say. Penrith is such a lovely place to visit for Christmas shopping and for a Pre-Christmas getaway.
From Christmas themed events, screenings and shows at Rheged to the big lights switch on in the town centre on Saturday 28 November, Penrith comes alive with full on festive cheer.
In fact, the big lights switch on marks the start of the Penrith Winter Festival. Beginning on November 28 and running right through until December 24, this event in its fourth year aims to bring as much festivities to the town and its visitors as possible as well as encouraging them to buy local from the high quality choice of shops on and around Penrith. Full details of the Penrith Winter Festival can be found here, http://www.penrithwinterfestival.co.uk/.
At Roundthorn Country House Hotel we hold Christmas party nights for work and social gatherings, private lunches and dinners for 10 to 200 guests as well as our new Festive afternoon tea. Any one of these can be combined with staying over in one of our 10 sumptuous bedrooms. We love Christmas time here at Roundthorn and we’re sure you will too.
