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!

“What an amazing stay we’ve had at Shepherds View barn.  Over the 3 days we’ve stayed here everything has been perfect – from the warm welcome to the luxury of the accommodation.  The location and surroundings are beautiful, we’ve been on some lovely walks including Dufton Pike and the Church walk.  Thank you so much, we’ll definitely recommend and come back.”

“So relaxing!! Luxurious accommodation. We wouldn’t hesitate to return.  Loved it. Thank you.”

“Thank you.  Just what we needed.  Thank you for all the delicious local goodies.”

“Returned again as a birthday retreat and it is just as lovely as we remembered from last year.  A perfect place to relax and enjoy a few days away.  No doubt we will be back again.  Thanks.”

“What a gem!!  A beautiful little hideaway for a relaxing weekend.  Everything we needed and more.  Thank you.  Hopefully we will be able to come back soon!”

“What a fab time we have had here.  There was everything we needed & more!  Loved the fire, the bath & the lighting.  Clean & fresh everywhere and Carole and Simon couldn’t have been more welcoming & helpful.  We wish you all the best for the new year.”

Please see the advice. Cumbria is closed for tourism. ... See MoreSee Less

Dear Guest

We have taken the very difficult but necessary decision to close our business for the foreseeable future. We need to do our part in protecting the safety of the vulnerable and essential workers in our local area and we feel that this is best served by not allowing guests to visit from other parts of the country. Cumbria has a small population compared to other regions and we need to ensure our own local hospitals can support local people in these difficult times.

We will continue to take bookings for dates later in the year and on into 2021, but will take a pragmatic approach to refunding deposits and payments depending on government advice and the situation prevailing at the time.

If you have a booking with us for later in the year and have any concerns at all, please do feel free to get in touch by phone or email and we will be happy to discuss your specific booking.

We hope we can welcome you back in the not too distant future. Hopefully more happy times are ahead.

Best Wishes
Simon and Carole

Beautiful spring morning in Dufton Ghyll today. Always a good start to the day walking in these woods. Bluebells still a few weeks away yet. Didn't see any reds today but they rarely come out when I have the camera! Plus my favourite memorial placed by the hard working @woodlandtrust
