Tufton Arms Hotel was originally a 16th century coaching inn rebuilt in the Victorian era, which means that its Grade II listed walls now enclose period features including high-ceilings and grand decor with elegant and traditional furnishings. Located in the Appleby-in-Westmorland town, this hotel offers guests the chance to visit the scenic region of Lake District that beckons with specific attractions such as the The Lake of Derwentwater, mirroring in its calm lake the mountainous setting. Visitors are welcomed to spacious bedrooms where the Victorian style has left its mark, featuring antique engravings, large table lamps, elegant chandeliers and curtains. The Conservatory Fish Restaurant uses locally sourced produce from the nearby butchers and greengrocers, and serves up hearty meals in a bright atmosphere with pastel colour tones, patterned wallpapers, statues and paintings. The Wine Shop and Cafe Bar offer tantalising refreshment options, providing visitors the chance to sample imported wines and coffee delicacies that the hotel specialises in.
