Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Tufton Arms, Appleby-in-Westmorland, Cumbria, sleeps 2-41 in 23 bedrooms.
The Tufton Arms is a delightful, charming Victorian hotel situated in the middle of the famous medieval town of Appleby-in-Westmorland.
The idea of letting the hotel to large groups came from a large family Christmas for 40 friends and relations which we hosted a few years ago, which was simply the best, most relaxed Christmas ever. Christmas and New Year are therefore available on an exclusive use, fully self catering basis. Catering is provided at other times of year.
The hotel has been run for over 25 years by the Milsom family and has a reputation for friendly hospitality, good food and a large sensibly priced wine list. There is a good mix in the hotel of contemporary style and comfort whilst still retaining the building's history and heritage. The hotel makes an ideal venue for family celebrations or corporate groups, with function or conference rooms available.
Built in a huge loop of the River Eden, the old county town of Westmorland is famous for its annual Gypsy horse fair in June, its Norman castle and church. The main street, Boroughgate, is wide and elegant, steeped in history with the Moot Hall and council chambers where William Pitt was MP and became the youngest ever Prime Minister.
The Eden Valley with the North Pennines as a backdrop provides a rich playground for country sports and activities. High Cup Nick, arguably the most spectacular part of the Pennine Way, overlooks the town. The River Eden provides excellent fishing for wild brown trout, grayling and salmon. There are many established cycle routes and walks. The shooting fraternity are well catered for on local estates for grouse, pheasant and partridge.
There is also a wealth of sightseeing - castles, National Trust properties and ancient stone circles. If all this wasn't enough then Appleby is a short 20 minutes from Lake Ullswater and its steam boats, the Northern Lake District and a similar distance from the Yorkshire Dales which can perhaps be best enjoyed using the Settle Carlisle Cross Pennine Railway.
