Very helpful staff who are very knowledgeable about Appleby and its history. We had wanted to go into St Laurence Church, however, it was closed due to refurbishment which the staff at the Tourist Information office were aware of but apologised to us for as...MoreThank you for the lovely review especially in light of the fact that the church was closed during your visit. We look forward to seeing you again .

St Anne's Hospital

Reviewed By MD-FatDonkey - Settle, United Kingdom

We stumbled across St Anne's Hospital when wandering around the town of Appleby. What a lovely little property this is. Founded as a hospital, it has retained all its character and is now a series of really small cottages, surrounding a squared courtyard garden, each property with its distinctive pillar box red door. In the corner is the tiny chapel (again with red door) and through the courtyard to the rear of the property is a large garden/lawned area with views.
You can really imagine the frail and ill enjoying sitting out in the grounds here in bygone times.

Reviewed By shane s - Northamptonshire, United Kingdom

We have seen so much beauty today but to locate this waterfall close to our accommodation really made our day.It is signposted as Rutter falls quite clearly from the main road and the approach is slightly tricky down a narrow track and there is a small layby to pull into....we did and got some fabulous photos of the old mill as well as the waterfall...then proceeded to drive through the ford.....absolutely stunning scenery with rented accommodation in close proximity.visited Oct 16th 2017

Appleby Castle grounds are listed heritage parkland. Public are allowed to walk around the grounds. The inner bailey cherishes one of the few Norman Keeps still fully intact and in existence. Walk by the C13th round tower or C12th portcullis door. If your lucky the tea shop will be open and you can go inside the Old Hall.

Reviewed By kc31York - york

We ordered afternoon tea through groupon which included castle entry. Id suggest this as it is significantly cheaper then paying at the castle directly. The food was very nice and was served in a very grand room in the castle. Customer service was excellent and we were able to wander round a few of the castle rooms after our meal. We really enjoyed the experience.

If you want whistle and bells and a trendy gastro pub then not for you but if you want a friendly down to earth real boozer with very friendly locals who make you feel welcome and great bar staff and a landlord Andy who takes time to befriend a visitor than check this place out as by the time we left our weeks stay in Appleby the place felt like we had been drinking there for years, this is also dog friendly and has a real good atmosphere
