Welcome to Dufton Barn Holidays

As you arrive into the beautiful village of Dufton in the Eden Valley you immediately start to sense the benefit of a rural idyll in your own garden of Eden.  All around you is peaceful countryside and gentle rolling hills, away from the daily hum drum of life and the bustle of the Lake District.

Dufton Barn Holidays ticks all the boxes, as we are perfectly positioned between the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Moors, for a complete pamper break for two in luxurious Shepherds View.  You can even leave your car parked up for the whole of your stay, as there are numerous walks suiting all abilities direct from the property, together with easy to follow walking guides.

We have provided everything you need to recharge your batteries, leaving you to decide how active you want to be, whether walking or cycling in the beautiful Eden Valley or just simply relaxing in the gorgeous jacuzzi bath!

“Another great stay in an amazing cottage.  We’ve explored some more but there is so much more to see and do, so we’ll definitely be back.  Thank you.”

“Our second wonderful stay here.  An oasis of perfection in Dufton, a fabulous place to stay where we enjoyed great walks, fishing (successful!), lovely food at the Stag Inn and great pizzas from Micky!  Such a comfy bed with the best view!!  See you again next year!”

“Lovely accommodation and stunning views.  Wonderful time of year to visit.  Everywhere is green and beautiful.  Lots of lambs are a treat to see.  For us the natural beauty and views are what makes this place special.  Loved our cycle to National Trust Acorn Bank and all the local walks.”

“Our first visit to SV and a very long time since we were last in Dufton (probably 25 years ago!). We have had an absolute blast.  Just brilliant accommodation and hospitality.  We have walked locally most days and made v. good use of the maps and laminates.  The weather has been a joy every single day.  The views from the Pennines and from SV have provided us with some lovely memories.  Thank you Carole and Simon.”

“Lovely accommodation that contained everything we needed and a great location!  The lambs were a fab surprise that we all fell in love with including our little sausage dog and found ourselves sitting watching them most evenings.  Thank you for a wonderful stay – we will be back!”

Ullswater lake has lots of activities for our more active guests to take part in and can be done even on a rainy day. With it only being 25 minutes away this makes a great place to try your hand and have a go.
Ullswater Wake & Surf offers excellent coaching and tuition. We had a great day out trying this. Very friendly staff who make it lots of fun.
