A cumbrian castle wedding venue. Appleby Castle is perched at the highest point of Appleby. Surrounded by the River Eden & 27 acres of ancient forestry. A 900 year old motte and bailey castle. Beloved country retreat of Queen Elizabeth the firsts jouster.

This castle has a rich and varied history, held by the Kings of Scotland and England. Perhaps its most famous resident was Lady Anne Clifford who did so much for the castle and surrounding area.

Privately owned, this place is no hotel, it’s an experience. Not only is the decor unique, this is all kept to the 16th Century period, it’s the history, and the people that work there that make this castle one you need to consider. From the owner to her butler and his staff, you’ll be very well looked after from the moment you step foot in the door.

Furthermore there’s a great sense of ambiance in each room.  As you wander through the corridors, following the foot steps of lords and ladies before us, you start to get the feel of what makes this castle such a unique place to get married. Family home springs to mind, not a corporate hotel.  This is apparent from the moment you ring the door bell to alert the butler you’ve arrived. If you’re looking for a cumbrian castle wedding then you need not carry on your search.

Applebly offers a variety of packages to suit all couples, from a private elopement to a complete venue and grounds hire. But no matter what package you choose, their wedding coordinator is on hand round the clock to make sure your day goes without a hitch – pun intended.

Finally, up in the servants quarters: wonky floors, small windows and bells that still work. Up in the gods is the Honeymoon Suite; equipped with large super-king wooden bed frame, his and hers sinks, roll top bath and a walk in shower. This Suite is the largest of the rooms in the castle with the best views over the Pennines.
