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!

“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.”

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.”

Brexit update!
You don’t need a passport or visa to visit Cumbria and there is no border control. Also, your £ is worth, well, a pound, and there are plenty of wonderful places to see and lots to do. Plus you don’t have to take a flight to get here, just pack what you need in the back of the car. English spoken.
