A Warm Welcome to The Sandford Arms, Appleby-in-Westmorland

The Sandford Arms was frequented by William de Sandford during the reign of King Edward I and remains just as welcoming today.

As you drive into the Hamlet of Sandford you will be immediately struck by the Sandford Arms, a suberb conversion of 18th century farm buildings into a beautiful residential inn with a lovely lounge, restaurant and fire side room.

Inside, a warm welcome awaits you from your hosts and attentive staff. Relax in traditional comfort, surrounded by local stone work and a profusion of oak beams. Enjoy local traditional ale or a choice of malts.


Our en suite bedrooms offer real comfort, well-equipped with TV & tea making facilities.

Enjoy views across the meadows or towards the romantically named fells, “Roman Fell” and “Murton Pike”. During the trout season we have a daily allocation of two rods, along a stretch of the beautiful river Eden which has an excellent reputation for Brownies.
