About Our Home  ‘telling the story’

Glendale Guest House is a very beautiful, extremely spacious Victorian built town house, constructed from traditional Cumbria Red Sandstone, built sometime mid to late 1800’s. The plot on which number four (Glendale) would be built, stood in the wooded grounds of the ‘Wordsworth Buildings’ close to public baths & wash-houses The house was understood to have originally been built for the ‘Eddington Family’ with Daniel Charles Eddington, born in 1866 in Edinburgh, trained as a Doctor. He was a prominent member of the local community, overseeing autopsies which were widely reported in the newspapers of the time. He shared his home at 4 Portland Place, with his wife Frances and son, who’s birth at the house was announced in the Scotsman in 1899.

Our delightful Victorian property still retains many of its original features with soaring ceilings & large boxed bay windows delivering tranquil views both to the rear, over the delightful & peaceful Church Grounds of Christ Church and to the front over the beautifully maintained Penrith Coronation Gardens. Hallways are spacious with the most wonderful wide, sweeping, solid wood, carved staircase. We have ceiling roses, picture rails, original cornices & skirtings & traditional light switches in nearly every room. And our dining room has the most handsome fireplace. All these gorgeous features make our home a truly lovely place to stay.
