We were given a gift package for Christmas and decided to use it for an overnight break with breakfast at The Tufton Arms in Appleby, Cumbria. We booked for our 11th wedding anniversary on the 14th January. This is a historic, family run hotel right in the centre of Appleby; a converted coaching inn, it has been sympathetically restored and...

Our group were made very welcome at this excellent hotel run by its very hospitable host, Nigel. The rooms are clean and tidy & the beds comfortable with amenities that perform well up to modern standards. The food is good with some very tasty local additions. If you are staying for angling/fieldsport related activities, Nigel is more than able to...

This hotel were very acomodating, I rang to say I was running late and the receptionist was very understanding and when I arrived she advised on parking in the 'yard' just behind the hotel, which has plenty of space. The room is comfortable and well appointed, the bathroom is modern and better than the standard of a 5* hotel! The...

This hotel was exactly what I liked, spotlessly clean, staff warm and welcoming, comfy beds, lots of hot water, tasteful decor and lovely breakfasts, Appleby is a very small place but has great pubs and cafes and a few restaurants, this hotel is great as a base to get out and explore

This a traditional, old fashioned and privately owned hotel in a beautiful part of the country. The rooms are lovely, well designed and in general the food at the restaurant is excellent. Any criticisms? Well perhaps it's a bit frayed around the edges and lacks levels of the investment you'd expect from some of the main hotel groups, however the...

The Tufton Arms Hotel is an individually owned hotel set at the bottom end of Boroughgate right in the heart of the very attractive small town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. This is a comfortable, old-fashioned (in a quaint way) traditional provincial hotel with all the quirks and charms which can only come from establishments that don't belong to a chain of businesses....

Lovely quaint hotel set in the centre of Appleby, one of the prettiest liitle towns in Cumbria. Pleasantly surprised at the size, quality and comfort of our room (No 7) and the excellent breakfast which was full English cooked to order. Not a venue for those seeking clubs, music or a busy night-life .. but an ideal hotel for a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the medieval town of Appleby, just outside the Lake District and 15 minutes from the M6, this intimate family-run hotel offers excellent food, in its relaxed newly refurbished bar areas and in the Conservatory Restaurant. We are a fish restaurant and have developed an enviable reputation for dishes such as Gumbo's, Chowders, Goan Fish curries, Fresh Mussels (3 different ways), Cajun Prawns and Calamari, and our constantly changing fish specials all fresh daily from Neves in Fleetwood. We still have our traditional sources of great beef and Cumbrian lamb on a grill menu so meat eaters are not left out! Originally a 16th Century coaching inn, it was rebuilt in the Victorian times and is now a Grade II listed building. It blends both the contemporary and the classical creating an atmosphere that reflects the traditional charms of the past as well as the sophisticated elegance of the present. With stylish soft furnishings, heaped cushions, deep sofas, polished wooden floors and open fires its homely comforts are further completed by warm and friendly hospitality and free wi-fi. Each of the 22 en-suite guestrooms are individually furnished and decorated. Beautifully appointed they offer all the necessary modern comforts and luxuries one would expect from a hotel of this calibre. Guests can choose from a range of different accommodation options including Single, Classic Double and Family options. For those special occasions they also offer Luxury Double rooms and spacious Suites. ... more   less
