Appleby Castle is situated just 15 miles from the English Lake District and deep in the heart of the Eden Valley, 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 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. Imagine being able to relax in the home of Lady Anne.
You can now stay in one of Appleby Castle’s historic bedrooms or in one of our luxurious holiday cottages.
The Castle’s 7 guest bedrooms are full of period details and antique furniture.
Our 3 holiday cottages were completely renovated in 2016. Each cottage has a lounge, kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom and is equipped with modern appliances including free WiFi. The cottages are situated in Appleby Castle’s Inner Bailey next to the 12th Century Norman Keep.
