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 'Carpark' and as a result we do not have a carpark at the rear of our very lovely home!
However, we are exceptionally fortunately to have a number of great & very easy, convenient 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 at Glendale Guesthouse. 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 these times without restriction or disc requirement. However, before 6pm and after 8am parking is restricted to 2 hours on disc parking. Outside of these times (i.e. before 6pm and after 8am) you need to display a 'parking disc'; this delivers 2 hours parking. Hence our check-in time is 4pm - disc use to 6pm then unrestricted, then again 8am disc used for up to 2 hours taking you to our latest 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 with one to use while you stay with us. Also, please bear in mind, that this method of 'on-road' parking is not guaranteed, it is strictly first come first served; we cannot hold or reserve you a parking space.
Please don't worry - we have another perfect parking option too! Simply Read-on!
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 over the road at the other side of our beautiful Penrith Millennium Garden; 'Drovers Lane Car Park'.
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 of arrival, or paying in-advance before you arrive, is also 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 guest house to your left-hand side you are heading in the right direction! Simply drive to the end of Portland Place where you will find a 'mini-round-about' you need to turn right on this mini-round-about, taking the last exist, this is just around the 1960's styled NHS building on the corner of Portland Place taking you 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, it’s that easy! 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 no need to walk back around the long way - it really is as simple and convenient as that.
