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 click on the Barn Tab at the top and find the video at the bottom of the page.

“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.”

Sarah & GreggRippingale, December 2019

“We had the most relaxing week in the best place we have ever stayed in!  The views have been absolutely breath-taking.  Every pub we went to for food was amazing and everyone was so friendly.  Brilliant walks to High Cup Nick.  Low Force and High Force didn’t disappoint either.  We would definitely come back.  Thank you Carole and Simon.”

Sophie and JackIpswich, November 2019

“What a beautiful place!  We have had a wonderfully relaxing and cosy stay at Shepherds View.  We walked up to High Cup Nick – breath-taking views all around!  This is a very special place – all the finishing touches mean that we have thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to this lovely area.  Thank you Carole and Simon, we can’t wait to come back!”

Becky and BenWarrington, November 2019

“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!”
