Appleby In Westmorland
Appleby Manor Country House Hotel is nestled amid the Pennines on the Edge of the Lake District, Cumbria in a beautiful rural setting on the outskirts of the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland and close to the town of Penrith.
With all this breathtaking beauty around, you could be forgiven for overlooking Appleby itself. Yet it would be a mistake not to take time to investigate this beautiful and historic market town, set like a jewel in the midst of the quiet, peaceful, and aptly named Vale of Eden. Situated in a bend of the beautiful River Eden - Cumbria's longest river, Appleby was the former County town of Westmorland. Upon the creation of the 'new' county of Cumbria, the town adopted the former county name to become know as Appleby-in-Westmorland in order to reflect the town's heritage and preserve the name of the ancient county.
Appleby offers a wealth of places to visit, Appleby is steeped in history with an array of places to explore the heritage of this former county town. The beautiful scenery offers many opportunities for walkers and nature lovers and for garden lovers there is no shortage of nearby beautiful gardens and nurseries to explore.
If you are looking for an active holiday, whether it's swimming, tennis, squash, bowls or enjoying a round of golf, trout fishing in the River Eden, or a tranquil riverside walk amid the breathtaking scenery, Appleby-in-Westmorland offers something for everyone whilst on holiday.
In addition to this Appleby's award-winning train station, a short stroll from the town center lies one of Britain's most spectacular railways - The Settle - Carlisle Line.
