From Our Editors

Nestled in the heart of Eden Valley, Appleby Castle is a motte and bailey castle that has been held by the Kings of England and Scotland and boasts one of few remaining intact Norman keeps. The history of Appleby Castle reaches back to Roman times when a fort existed on the site to protect the crossing over the River Eden. Now, the Castle is available for private celebrations, conferences, filming and sporting events. During the summer months, the Castle holds a number of social events including open-air theatre and battle reenactments.

Out of season we had our own personal guide who was very informative and helpful. We then went on to enjoy our afternoon tea where we ate alone but the service was to our satisfaction and we were well looked after.

Very nice afternoon tea and tour was interesting but you don't see much of the inside of the Castle. Your tour should be included if you have an afternoon tea.

Afternoon tea was lovely but there was no one else there. The staff (James) was a delight but it was so quiet. We had booked a history tour as well but when we arrived we were told that he guide was on holiday!!

Not much attention by staff after service staff disappeared and had to go and find a person for further beverages

I think the ackage should include the castle tour option, without which it's a long way to go just for afternoon tea. The food was superb, the dining room impressive the staff excellent, but an additional £40 for 4 to tour the castle rather spoilt the overall experience.
