You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Local Chambers of Commerce for CA11. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Victoria Road Dental Practice

9 Victoria Rd, Penrith CA11 8HR, UK – 01768 862009

Recently while on holiday in Cumbria, I lost a filling and I was able to get an appointment at Victoria Road Dental Practice. The staff were very friendly and professional. They explained everything clearly and I was very pleased with my treatment.

I have been a patient at VRDP for over 40 years. 4 years ago I moved from Penrith to Kendal and had no hesitation in continuing to receive my dental care at VRDP. The staff could not be more professional and friendly. As soon as one walks into the reception area there is always a cheerful welcome from Ann. I believe that I receive excellent treatment from Louise who always, in her friendly professional manner takes time to explain in detail what treatment etc is required.I have regular visits to the dental hygienist for a scale and polish and always leave knowing that I have received outstanding treatment. I would certainly recommend VRDP

Stricklandgate Dental Practice

Stricklandgate, Penrith CA11 7NH, UK – 01768 865744

Best dentist I've ever had. I always feel very like I'm in good hands here and travel from abroad to receive treatment from Dr Patel. They're never in a rush and take their time to explain what they're doing and the options you have for future treatment. They're gentle, cautious and up to the minute with the latest dentistry, which is quite a find in Cumbria. They are also very happy to talk about cosmetic treatment, which is not something you find normally. I also take my 2 young daughters here and they are very comfortable with Satya. Five star rating for the dentists, hygienists and very the friendly receptionists.

Best dental surgery I've been to This is one of the best dental surgeries I've been to. They're friendly and professional from when you walk in to the dentist and hygienists. All staff were fantastic and would highly recommend to anyone!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Catterlen

Brantwood Hotel, Bar and Restaurant

Stainton, Penrith CA11 0EP, UK – 01768 862748

Very worthwhile detour for a pleasant overnight stop. A good evening menu, well prepared. Quiet night's sleep in a room with wondrous decor. Nothing too much trouble for breakfast — even found Marmite for the toast!

I was attending a funeral tea, so only saw the bar area, but that was very satisfactory.

Indian plaza

Middle Gate, Middlegate, Penrith CA11 7PT, UK – 01768 865566

Initial impression was that it was a bingo hall and apparently it was. Don't let that put you off as it is very well furnished and serves very good Indian food. Excellent value for money.

Lovely food and good staff

I can't recommend this place enough we have stayed there twice now and never fails to disappoint a family run business which gives the personal touch very modern extremely clean absolutely great food and the morning after I stayed up to listen to the live music I woke up with somewhat of a hangover they sent me up a bacon butty and water to help me recover. Even the lady on the door on the Saturday night was amazing and so polite. Brilliant place to stay. Lee Dale.

Parking available outside the hotel. Rooms are modern, clean, tidy. Better than Travelodge standard by a country mile. Service was spot on. Food was lovely, well presented and good value for money. Top marks to the chef.
