If you’re searching for a Westmorland hotel, look no further than Premier Inn.
Historically, Westmorland was a county in its own right, but the area now forms part of Cumbria. The county of Westmorland may no longer exist, but its former county town, Appleby-in-Westmorland, is still a popular tourist destination. Book a room in a Premier Inn hotel near this attractive town and discover all that the area has to offer.
The idyllic village of Appleby-in-Moreland is the perfect place to visit as part of a holiday in Cumbria. It also still hosts the annual Appleby Horse Fair, an event which dates back to the seventeenth century.
Gypsies from all around the UK come to the fair, which is held in early June, to trade horses and enjoy the festivities. If you’re staying in a Westmorland hotel during the fair, you may be able to see the magical sight of the horses walking through the nearby River Eden.
You can use also your Westmorland hotel as a base to explore the Lake District and follow in the footsteps of the Romantic Poets or take a trip to the Pennines and enjoy a day walking or cycling against a backdrop of spectacularly dramatic scenery.
