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 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!

“Relaxing and enjoyable stay, really lovely cottage, everything we needed was provided.  First time to this area, lovely walks, shops in Appleby, food at Stag Inn great, Thurs quiz good.  We had rain but it didn’t spoil anything.”

“OK!  So it rained all week, the Stag’s kitchen was closed all week for maintenance, Dufton Cafe was closed for the winter break, but it didn’t matter!  Shepherd’s View is delightful.  The tup-serviced sheep kept us entertained.  Everything is provided.  The hamper contents were devoured.  Best place for eating out – Casa Verde at Larch Nurseries.  The nursery itself is large enough for you to get up an appetite as is the opposite shop.  Enjoy!”

“A lovely birthday surprise.  Excellent accommodation with everything we could possibly need.  We made good use of the maps and flasks.  Very relaxing few days.  Thank you.”

“Shepherd’s View is simply amazing accommodation – beautifully clean and comfortable, it contains everything we could have hoped for …and more!  The welcome hamper full of local products was much appreciated and we made good use of the laminated walk guides.  Thank you for giving us such a warm welcome.  We’ve had a very relaxing week and we’ll be sure to tell our family and friends about you!”

“Gorgeous accommodation, fab setting, great walks, so lovely and quiet – What more could you want from a few days away?  Carole and Simon, you have thought of everything.  Thank you.”
