In the medieval town of Appleby, just outside the Lake District, Tufton Arms Hotel was originally a 16th Century coaching inn, it is now a Grade II listed building. One of the best hotels in Cumbria and situated in the Town Centre we are perfectly located to explore the Pennine Way, the Lake District and the Setttle-Carlsie railway. Rooms are elegantly decorated with a mixture of old and new. Each room has an en-suite bathroom or shower room, molton brown toiletries, a flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi and tea/coffee facilities. We have two newly refurbished one bedroom ground floor apartments that sleep up to 4 people and a two bedroom deluxe apartment on the first floor that sleeps up to 6 people. All apartments have a fully fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area and can be taken self catering. The Conservatory Restaurant offers fine dining and has an impressive wine list. The newly refurbished reception and bar areas have a contemporary feel with solid oak floors giving the perfect space to relax and unwind with a glass of wine, local real ale or a bite to eat.
I have been running the hotel with my family since 1988 and have a passion for food, fishing and wine in any order!! I like nothing better than sneaking of to the river and teaching our guests to fish for wild brown trout or salmon on the River Eden that enriches the town and the surrounding area. My passion for wine has resulted in a wine list that is both modern and traditional, along with being very good value and far bigger than it should be! I have recently been re-joined at the hotel by my brother David Milsom who has returned from our sister hotel in Comrie, Perthshire to take charge of the kitchen again. He has held an AA Rossette for over 25 years continuously and it is great to have such a talented chef back here at the hotel. David just simply has a passion for cooking, he excels with his own smoked produce particuarly smoked salmon and game, as well as being a great baker of breads, cakes, relishes, jams, marmalades and chutneys. Increasingly you will be able to buy these products in the hotel when you come to stay.
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. We offer fly fishing for both wild brown trout and salmon on The River Eden along with guiding and tuition and are responsible for many would be anglers having their first experiences on the river! The Eden valley is also blessed with perhaps the most spectacular natural feature in the North of England, High Cup Nick.
