Penrith Van Hire
Penrith is a market town in Cumbria, situated close to the M6 and just a few miles from the edge of the Lake District National Park.
The Cumbrian town of Penrith is home to nearly 15,000 people and lies alongside the M6, just outside the Lake District National Park. Although agriculture plays a major role in the area's economy, tourism is also important. Attractions for visitors to Penrith include Penrith Castle and nearby Brougham Castle.
The northern end of Ullswater, reckoned by many to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the Lake District, is also only a few miles south-west of Penrith. A cruise on Ullswater is a very peaceful way to spend an afternoon and highly recommended. Penrith is also close to Mayburgh Henge, one of the best-preserved Neolithic henges in Cumbria and nearly 10 feet high in places.
Despite its modest size, Penrith is large and diverse enough to generate a steady demand for van hire and has at least one local van rental company, offering a typical selection of vans:
- Medium / short wheelbase vans - e.g. Ford Transit, Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic, Volkswagen Transporter
- Small vans - e.g. Vauxhall Combo, Ford Transit Connect, VW Caddy
- Large / long wheelbase vans - e.g. Mercedes Sprinter XLWB, Ford Transit LWB, Renault Master, LDV Maxus
- Luton vans & box vans (3.5 tonne / 3.5t).
