Welcome to Appleby-in-Westmorland
Appleby-in-Westmorland, a historic market town set in the beautiful Eden Valley, is the ideal base for anyone looking to explore the historic and natural spectacle of Cumbria. The town's parish church, St Lawrence's, is a Grade I listed building, and recorded in the National Heritage List for England. The privately-owned Appleby Castle was besieged in the Second English Civil War, where Thomas Harrison, a prominent military leader, was wounded.
Discover the North Pennines
Be amazed by the incredible views of the North Pennines - one of the most remote and unspoilt areas in the whole of England. A landscape made of expansive heather moors and roaring waterfalls, this incredible area is both a UNESCO European and Global Geopark, and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors from more urban areas will love losing themselves on long walks, cycles and horse rides, and exploring rustic villages like Allendale and Blanchland.
