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!

“Shepherd’s View is set in the peaceful surroundings of the Eden Valley and great for exploring the Lakes and the Yorkshire Dales.  The barn itself is very cosy and stylishly decorated with a lot of lovely details.  Our hosts were charming and helpful while always respecting our privacy.  All in all, if you are looking for a perfect hideaway to unwind: look no further, Book Now!”

Noel and AlexGermany - August 2019

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.”

“Our first and last thought of this place were ‘wow’.  From the special personalised messages from Carole & Simon to the truly luxurious touches of the high end finishes of the barn, this is the most special place to stay.  Thank you so much and we will definitely be back.”

Eddy and DeniseWirral, Aug 2019

This is a truly special place.  Serene, lovely scenery and sheep all around!  What more could you ask for?!  We spent a relaxing few days here, walked around Dufton and drove to the Lakes.  Carole and Simon are extremely welcoming… and so is Truffles the cat!

John and AnnemarieLeeds, July 2019

“Absolutely amazing!  From the minute we walked through the door we were amazed!  The view from the kitchen of the sheep in the field took our breath away!   The bedroom with the fire place and beautiful coloured lights and the amazing décor in the room blew us away.  However, the bathroom really was the best; jet bath and techno shower!  We loved everything about your home, thank you for having us!”

Cassie and JonathanEnfield, July 2019

“Weather, scenery, village, pub, coffee shop, house all ideal.  Wonderful setting, we will return to Dufton!! An unforgettable week.”
