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.

“Absolutely Wow! Wow! Wow!  Thank you for offering this wonderful sanctuary.  We weren’t here long enough.  We’ve had a perfect time and have so loved the hills, the sheep, the light, and as for the “bells and whistles” – amazing.  We do hope to come again indeed.  Thank you! Thank you!”

“What a lovely holiday cottage with a beautiful view.  Everything in the cottage is superb and you have gone the extra mile with the homely touches.  Definitely one of the most well equipped cottages we have stayed in.  Never mind 5 stars – we’ll give you 6!”

“Wow, Wow, Wow.  Absolute perfection!!  Shepherd’s view certainly meets the standards set by the Premier Cottages collection.  I don’t think anything could beat the view from the bedroom/lounge windows.  The facilities in the cottage are absolutely amazing.  We will be back!”

“This has been a wonderful experience and we have enjoyed every minute of this holiday, from going on walks up Dufton Pike, to travelling to different parts of the Lake District.  From the first day we have had a warm welcome, and Shepherd’s View is beautifully furnished and well equipped.  Many Thanks.”

Lovely autumnal walk in the north Pennines to the top of Talkin Fell with spectacular views across to Alston and over to Blencathra. Easy walking with a small climb and then a circular route back round and down to the start over rolling moorland. We even watched the rain run past below us, met some new friends, took note of the welcome sign to Castle Carrock! ... See MoreSee Less

Love this review we had recently off one of our lovely guests with up front reviews .
It just shows that even when the weather is wild there is still plenty to do in the area.
