Glendale Guesthouse is a traditional Victorian Property dating back well into the 1800's as such building of this nature where not built with a 'Car Park' and as a result we do not have a car-park at the rear of our very lovely home.
However, we are exceptionally fortunately to have a number of parking options available to all our guests - read-on to find the option that best suits you.
Most of our guests choose to opt for 'on-road' parking, when staying with us. This is delivered directly outside our property on Portland Place; parking on-road is however restricted in this locality. Between the hours of 6pm & 8am, parking is unrestricted - you can leave your vehicle during this timespan without restriction or disc requirement. However, before 6pm and after 8am parking is restricted to 2hours on disc parking only. Outside of these times (i.e. before 6pm and after 8am) you need to display a 'parking disc'; this delivers two-hours parking. Hence our check-in time is 4pm - disc use to 6pm then unrestricted, then again 8am disc use 2hours taking you to our check-out time of 10am.
Please Note, should you need a parking-disc simply let us know on arrival check-in and we will happily supply you one. Also, please bear in mind, that this method of 'on-road' parking is not
guaranteed, it is strictly first come first served; we can not hold or reserve you a parking space.
Please done worry - we have another perfect parking option!
In the event that you require longer parking options or you are unable to find suitable on-road parking at Glendale we are extremely lucky to have a 24 hour, over-night car-park located just over the road at the other side of our beautiful Penrith Millennium Gardens.
This car-park backs onto the Penrith Police Station, where they also park police vehicles. This is a 'pay-and-display' car-park, you can pay by the hour or for the full day; options to pay on the day or pay before you arrive in-advance are available. For further details of this please visit the dedicated Eden Council Web Page at:
Finding the car-park is really easy once you have arrived onto Portland Place; if you have our guesthouse to your left-hand side you are heading in the right direction! Simply drive to the end of Portland Place where you will see the 'mini-round-about' you need to turn right on the last exist, this is just around the 60's built NHS building, onto Drovers Lane. Then simply ignore the first right-turn this leads into the NHS car-park only, take the second right-turn into the main car-park entrance. Once you have paid-and-displayed as required, you can head across to us via the lower side exit on the right, after the police station; this cuts back onto Portland Place - you do not need to walk back around the long way - it really is as simple as that.
