This former coaching inn is now the most charming of hotels in Cumbria
The Tufton Arms Hotel is a small, intimate, luxury hotel in Cumbria, situated in the centre of the charming 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 set in the heart of the tranquil, un spoilt and beautiful Eden Valley, near to Penrith which borders the Lake District.
