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!

Dental Surgeries

Ghyllmount Dental

Unit 4/Hobson Court/Gillan Way/Penrith 40 Business Pk, Penrith CA11 9GQ, UK – 01768 862291

So far I have only had a consultation for an implant, but this is a nice modern building, parking was no problem when I went, with plenty of spaces to park. Reception was genuinely friendly. I was particularly impress with the free toothbrushes in the toilet area, if you have not come from home it is nice to know you can freshen your teeth before being seen. The waiting area was bright and roomy yet with a nice ambience. The Dentist was also friendly and unrushed and explained everything very clearly. I’ve yet to received my quotation ( I only went yesterday) I am hoping it will be competitive as this would be where I would be very comfortable to have treatment.

A great dental practice. From the helpful receptionists, to Anna, my dentist who really does have the gentle touch, and Charlotte who always takes the time to make sure everything is right. Thank you.

Stricklandgate Dental Practice

32a Stricklandgate, Penrith CA11 7NH, UK – 01768 865744

Havent had treatment at clinic yet, but i know the staff are a very friendly ,caring and very professional team.

I needed to have some teeth removed and was given various options, all fully explained, as to what could be done. In the end, I opted for a combination of implants and clip-in denture. I was very apprehensive about having implants but need not have been, as the staff were very good and put me at ease. The fact that I was ill part way through my treatment and had to change appointments was not a problem and they made new appointments for when I was able to continue treatment. They did an excellent job and I am very pleased with the results.

Victoria Road Dental Practice

I have just received the most amazing treatment at short notice following broken front teeth at 4.30pm on a Friday. All done without the need for any injection and allowing me to enjoy a family meal out at 6pm. Many thanks to Fran and her team.

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.

Villa Bianca restaurant and hotel

5 Corney Square, Penrith CA11 7PX, UK – 01768 210826

Great location. Very good staff. Excellent food .

Rooms ok, need a little TLC but reflective of price. The service was good and the breakfast great. Location ideal but parking restricted.

Four & Twenty

42 King St, Penrith CA11 7EJ, UK – 01768 210231

Had a great experience here. I was in a rush to catch my train, and when I ordered I misestimated how long I had so the final parts of my meal were to come out when I should have already left. I let my waiter know and he was very understanding and helpful in getting my meal made more quickly and to go, plus pay eight away. He even gave me a spoon for the road with which to eat my dish. The food was good too, well done risotto, nice soup (although quite tomatoy, not my thing) and berry dessert. I'd come back if I were in Penrith again.

Excellent food and good service. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone interested.

Gianni's Pizzeria

11 Market Square, Penrith CA11 7BY, UK – 01768 891791

This nursary is fantastic brilliant staff feel very safe leaving my 3year old there hes made so many friends and learnt so much i will miss it when my little boy starts school in september!

Ignore the other review the nursery is fantastic. I have no fear leaving my son at nursery and have seen his development skyrocket since he started there. The interior is fantastic, well decorated and is very clean (considering it is over ran by small children!) Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School

Ullswater Rd, Penrith CA11 7EG, UK – 01768 864621

Amazing atmosphere. Great educational system. Couldn't ask for more. Fond lifelong memories.

Possibly the best school in the area. They are selective about their admissions, and as a result attain high academic results. Their range of subjects at GCSE/A-level may be relatively small, but the teachers are genuinely enthusiastic about their respective subjects and this shows in the results they get. There's a wide range of extra-curricular activities available to all students too. The only thing that lets the school down is that some of its facilities are relatively dated, however, this does not stop it from being a fantastic institution.

Yanwath Primary School

4 Moorside, Yanwath, Penrith CA10 2LA, UK – 01768 840739

Children learn from the moment they are born. Curious minds absorb information constantly in an attempt to make sense of the world although, as most parents and teachers will tell you, this doesn’t always fall neatly into the packages of education outlined in any prescribed curriculum or scheme of work! In a time of ever-rising expectations and testing pressures in primary schools, developing the “whole child” remains of paramount importance at Yanwath. Through an emphasis on engaging pupils in their learning by making it real, we aim to harness their curiosity and produce confident young people who are ready to face the challenges of life and who have a love of learning.
