From the Owner

.Appleby is an interesting town with some very old buildings. The local people are really friendly. It is close to Windermere. Kendal, Keswick and the lakes to the west and Barnard's Castle, Durham and the Pennines to the east. There are stone circles in the area including Long Meg and her Daughters, Hadrian's Wall is to the north. There is a lot to choose from and in the centre of Appleby there is a very friendly Tourist Information Centre in the Moot Hall (a white building near to the church cloisters). Enjoy.
