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

Always treated professionally and with a smile. I have always dreaded the dentist and the hygienist even more!! But not any more.. The place is immaculate, all the staff are polite, welcoming and friendly. Kept fully informed on any treatment plan and the associated cost.

Fantastic Dentist, we just moved to the area and had no idea of where to pick, I'm delighted we picked here it is spotlessly clean, everyone is very friendly and we had the whole family in for a check up with no fuss, great care and attention from everyone involved and they advise you of everything as you go through the appointment.

Stricklandgate Dental Practice

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

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.

I had a crown fitted 18 months ago and I am very pleased with it. Been today for a checkup. Both the hygienist and the dentist gave very good service. The dentist even recommended a course of treatment which will be less painful both in the mouth and in the pocket!

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

Great little church. No end of people wanting to chat and get to know us. We went as a family on holiday and we're very glad to be in good company whilst away from home. Praise was led by acoustic guitar. Sunday school was exciting for the kids, learned about palm Sunday and we're invited to share with the whole church at the end. And our baby was happy to play with toys set out on a Matt at the back of the hall. the preach was interactive and simple, with a real sense of relevance and deep truth inspiring us to grow in relationship with God.
