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!
