She stood up to the Kings of England and to Oliver Cromwell and was remarkable for her social conscience and good will, building alms houses for poor and destitute women of Appleby and restoring churches in the mid 17th century.
Lady Anne had a very close and strong relationship with her mother who encouraged and supported her especially over her inheritance claims in a world dominated by men.
This year we would like to celebrate Mother’s Day with a special afternoon tea, followed by a short tour of the Appleby Castle.
There will be three sittings for afternoon tea; 1.00pm, 2.30pm and 4.00pm. The tour will follow the afternoon tea.
Sit in the Great Hall that was used by Lady Anne and enjoy a splendid afternoon tea made from fresh local ingredients and the best that Westmorland has to offer.
A pianist will play both the Harpsichord that was played by Lady Anne and the piano.
