Once the county town of Westmorland, Appleby is an attractive but ancient town dominated by a 12th century Norman Castle. It is on an important route across the Pennines (A66) to Scotch Corner and the A1. As such it makes a good base from which to explore the Eden Valley, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Appleby is an important stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, one of the most beautiful railway journeys in England. Today many old steam trains still travel this line and across the renowned Ribblehead viaduct. In terms of cottages and self-catering accommodation, the Appleby area seems to specialise in conversions. There is a stable block bungalow, a barn conversion cottage and a coaching inn conversion, all within a few miles of Appleby. Most properties sleep four people or less but bigger buildings are available or more than one property on a site which can be useful for larger groups.
