Kirkby StephenKirkby Stephen lies in Cumbria, a county formed from the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and part of North Lancashire, and now England's second largest county in size. Here you will find the beautiful Lake District National Park with spectacular mountain scenery, forest trails and lakeside paths around the 16 major lakes. The almost alpine landscape of England's highest mountains are a draw for the millions of visitors who pour into the park each year, where for 200 years, it has been the inspiration for artists, poets and writers who have made their home here.

Attractions The Horse Fair, Appleby-in-Westmorland. An annual event where every June, the Romany families of Europe – many in colourful, horse-drawn caravans – converge on nearby Gallow's Hill for this world-famous, week-long event. The fair began in 1685 when a charter was granted by James II. For many centuries, sheep and cattle were also sold at Appleby. The horses are washed in the River Eden before being shown off to prospective buyers. About 10 miles northwest of Kirkby Stephen.
