The Tufton Arms Hotel is a small, intimate, luxury hotel, situated in the centre of the historic, medieval town of Appleby-in-Westmorland.
Appleby is rightly regarded as the jewel of north west towns with its wide elegant main street Boroughgate, ancient church and grand castle all looped by the River Eden. The town is the old county town of Westmorland and is set in the heart of the tranquil, unspoilt and beautiful Eden Valley which lies between the Dales to the south, the North Pennines ANOB to the north and the northern Lake District to the West.
Run since 1989 by The Milsom family this most comfortable hotel in Cumbria will assure you of a warm and friendly welcome. The Tufton Arms Hotel was originally a 16th century coaching inn and is now a Grade II listed building rebuilt in Victorian times with tall ceilings creating a sense of space and elegance.
A stunning backdrop which Teresa Milsom has used to display her interior design which takes its inspiration from and reflects the ambience, character and charm of the Victorian era. The newly refurbished reception and bar areas have a striking, chic, contempory feel with solid oak floors and clever use of Farrow and Ball paints. Giving the perfect space to relax and unwind with a bottle of wine or glass of local real ale.
At the heart of our Cumbrian hotel is The Conservatory Restaurant offering daily changing fresh fish and seafood from Fleetwood as well as a grill menu with locally sourced meats. All complemented by a large, but very reasonably priced wine list. If you need a hotel in Cumbria for civil weddings, meetings or functions we also have a range of suites to accommodate you.
