The Cumbria/Lake District
Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Appleby in Westmorland
Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley is one of the most elegant and beautiful towns in the north of England â€“ the historic settlement of Appleby, originally the county town of Westmorland. At the heart of the town is the picturesque street of Boroughgate, which boasts some interesting old buildings and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. As a major stop on the Settle to Carlisle Railway, Appleby is ideally placed for one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, still undertaken by steam trains which wend their way over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. In June, visitors can experience the atmosphere of the 300 year old Horse Fair. Traditionally, this was an annual event where Gypsies gathered to sell their horses. Alternatively, the July Jazz Festival is fast becoming a popular attraction. The town is also within easy reach of the Lake District National Park, making it a wonderful spot for a family holiday.
