An intimate luxury hotel filled with historic character, in the heart of a Cumbrian medieval town looped by the River Eden - breakfast included

Add a dose of intimate luxury to your next English getaway with a stay at the small yet character-packed Tufton Arms Hotel, set in Appleby-in-Westmorland. Looped by the River Eden, this town brims with medieval charm, and offers the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Eden Valley, Lake District and Pennines, as well as for soaking up all the medieval history you could need.

Housed in a Grade II-listed building that was once a 16th-century coaching inn, the hotel is quite a destination in itself, with classically elegant interiors offering the perfect base for a memorable stay. Guest rooms blend patterned wallpapers, creamy colour schemes and Victorian touches with all the necessary mod-cons for a hassle-free night's sleep, while the fine dining restaurant offers an award-winning wine list and a must-try Sunday lunch. You'll be based in the town's medieval heart, too, with Boroughgate's shops and Appleby Castle within quick and easy reach.
