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.

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. Attractive patterned wallpapers, engravings and prints, heavy drapes, old fireplaces and large porcelain table lamps mix with contemporary fabrics, soft muted tones, modern lighting and bathrooms to create a sophisticated yet rich, classic look at this luxurious hotel in Cumbria.
