For a really special afternoon tea, take a companion to Appleby Castle for this historic treat in the amazing dining room at this marvel of the Eden Valley. Surrounded by Westmorland Oak panelling and sat near the crackling fire (in the colder months!) you’ll get a taste of the high life in this stunning room built in 1454 – long before afternoon tea was even invented! You’ll tuck into a delicious array of sandwiches, scones and cakes and wash it all down with a tea or coffee of your choice. Then perhaps you’ll wander the grounds or book a tour of the castle to gain insights into the rich history of this stately country residence.
