Appleby Castle has 27 acres of beautiful grounds for you to explore. The grounds are home to our 2 ponies, doves, buzzards and endangered Red Squirrels.



We have been on a quest with local writer, Anja Phoenix, to create a new adventurous Tale Trail for the grounds of Appleby Castle. Families can enjoy the trail for free with paid entry into the castle grounds….and there is a prize too for each brave adventurer!

Can you help Merlin and the Green Man break Morgana’s cruel spell and set the Wildlings free?
