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.  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.  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 relaxing in the jacuzzi bath!  To take a video walk through the Barn please visit the Barn Tab and find the video at the bottom of the page.

“We had an amazing stay at the barn!  We have never been so relaxed and were able to switch off and enjoy the amazing views!  The barn was cosy and snug and amazingly clean!  The barn has everything in it that you need, Carole and Simon have thought of everything.  We will be booking this place again soon!  Thank you for a great stay!”

“This was our 2nd visit to the wonderful Shepherd’s View and it didn’t disappoint.  We managed to walk Dufton Pike, Askham Fell Loop and the Ullswater Way!  The barn was a lovely place to return after all the walking.  We will be back again soon.
