It is clear that there has been a lot of work undertaken by the caring owners and we were not disappointed. We had a lovely ensuite room...

This was our second visit to the Sanford Arms and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The owners are lovely people as are their staff. Rooms are warm and very comfortable, spotless too, as is the whole pub which has just been redecorated and looks very smart. Food is very well cooked and plenty of it. Delicious. We will definitely be returning...

Recently refurbed facilities. En suite room. Very clean and nice big comfy bed. Tasty food served in the bar that was reasonably priced. Breakfast included in the room price was cooked on order and included full English. Location: just of A66 near Appleby and about half an hour to Penrith.
