The State Bedroom room is situated in the corner of the North East Tower with fabulous views looking across the Castle Park to the River Eden and the Pennines. With 16th Century tapestries adorning all walls, this special room is a fine example of how the very wealthy decorated their rooms before the advent of wallpaper and very few rooms like it exist in the country today. Two 16th Century four poster beds are situated in the room, one of which has Lady Anne Clifford’s headboard dated 1590. Book Now! (Link in bio!) www.applebycastle.co.uk
