Appleby

The town of Appleby-in-Westmorland sits within a loop of the River Eden in the County of Cumbria. An ancient market town that was formed after the Norman Conquest, Appleby is home to a number of listed buildings and has remained largely unchanged in its layout for hundreds of years.

The Eden Valley is a peaceful and incredibly scenic area, offering impressive views across the Cumbria countryside. The most impressive feature of the local landscape is ancient Appleby Castle, which sits overlooking the River Eden. Build in the early 1100s, the castle consists of a medieval keep and a fine mansion, both of which are Grade I listed buildings. The town itself has a quaint local cinema as well as some great places to eat and drink in the evening.

The town is a perfect destination for anyone looking for a really relaxing and simple break in the country. The area is not overly busy, so quiet river side and country walks will be exactly that - quiet. But the town is also close enough to the popular outdoor playgrounds of the Lake District National Park and the North Pennines, so if you want a day out with a little more activity, you don''t have to go far at all.

There is of course one time in the year when Appleby does become a hive of activity; Appleby Horse Fair is held annually every June when hundreds from the travelling community descent on the town to exercise, display and trade their horses.

Stay in one of our charming holiday cottages in Appleby this summer and explore beautiful Cumbria and discover the Eden Valley in complete peace and quiet.

    Ref: CC132177
    Appleby Castle is situated deep in the heart of the beautiful Eden Valley, just 15 miles from the Lake District, nestling alongside the meandering River Eden. This spectacular motte and bailey castle has been held by the Kings of England and Scotland and boasts one of the few remaining intact Norman keeps in Great Britain. In the 17th Century, the castle was the preferred residence of Lady Anne Clifford. She was a patron of authors and literature and known for her many letters and diaries.
    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 2 is one of three holiday properties which make up part of the inner bailey wall and medieval defences, which stand adjacent to the Norman Keep which has hardly changed over the past 900 years. TThe old great hall, built in 1454, stands across the courtyard and guests are welcome to take a tour with afternoon tea during their stay (at an additional charge).
    Appleby Castle owns the fishing rights on both sides of the River Eden immediately beneath the weir. This is prime fishing territory and salmon, trout and grayling abound in this special stretch of river. Fishing rights are exclusively for castle guests.
    Appleby is built in the curve of the River Eden and is a traditional medieval town with the castle at the top of the hill sloping gently downhill to the church. This is one of the prettiest market towns in England and despite once being the county town of Westmorland, it retains a village atmosphere with a great deal of interest and charm. One of it’s famous residents, the father of George Washington, Augustine Washington, grew up in Cumberland and attended Appleby Grammar School with his elder brother John. Situated in the beautiful Eden Valley, the location is superb for exploring the highlights of the North of England as it separates the Lakes District fells from the Pennines and also gives easy access to the Yorkshire and Durham Dales. The scenic Carlisle to Settle railway route runs through Appleby and makes a great day out. Further afield, the Northumberland National Park along with Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Border are within an hour’s drive. Superb walking, cycling, golf and fishing are all available nearby.
    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 2 can be booked together with Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 1 (CC132176) and Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 3 (CC132178) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
