All about Appleby Castle

The imposing castle has a lengthy and rich history, with parts of the site dating back to the beginning of the 12th century. Through civil war and countless attacks over the years, the castle has stood strong and hosted a wealth of notable people throughout its time. Couples can now walk the same paths as Lady Anne Clifford and Hugh De Morville, and celebrate in the history of this incredible castle. The square stone keep known as Caesar's Tower, the curtain walls and the impressive Great Hall provide remarkable backdrops for a truly unique wedding day.

When it comes to exchanging vows, brides and grooms can choose from a number of locations within the castle that provide perfect traditional settings for a wide range of party sizes. The oak-panelled Great Hall and generous Garden Rotunda are ideal for larger gatherings, capable of holding 100 and 250 guests respectively for a civil ceremony. Those looking for a smaller, more intimate ceremony can take advantage of the delightful Old Chapel, traditional Dining Room, or pretty Bee House, all of which can hold between 15 and 30 of your nearest and dearest.

Couples can also arrange a religious ceremony at St Lawrence, a local Anglican church which is just a five-minute walk from Appleby Castle. The church was originally built back in 1150 so brides and grooms can enjoy a wonderfully traditional setting wherever they decide to tie the knot.

After the ceremony, a drinks reception is the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of your new married life together. Couples are free to choose from any of the historic rooms in the castle to hold the reception in, or take to the grounds and enjoy your celebratory drinks al fresco. The Old Great Hall, Dining Room and Inner Bailey are always popular locations dues to their stunning traditional décor and grandeur that they provide.

Couples again have the freedom to choose when it comes to the location of their wedding breakfast and evening reception, with the array of rooms meaning that the ideal setting is available no matter how large or small your number of guests.

Appleby Castle boasts a stay of the utmost luxury for you and your guests, offering seven exquisite bedrooms, sauna, hot tub, tennis court and games room. Most of the stunning rooms are home to ornately carved four-poster beds and boast lots of period features for a truly traditional stay. This breathtaking castle wedding venue also offers three self-contained cottages within the Inner Bailey, and will also be able to provide a further eight bedrooms by the end of the year.

This magnificent Cumbria wedding venue lies in between the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines, so it provides a wonderfully rural setting for couples to tie the knot. Despite this, it's still easily accessible and is just 20 minutes off the M6. To find out more about this stunning venue, call 017683 30318.
