Welcome to Dufton Barn Holidays

Being perfectly positioned between the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Moors, Dufton Barn Holidays ticks all the boxes either for a complete pamper break for two in our luxurious Shepherds View, or in Shepherds Hut, our walkers “bolthole” with everything you need to recharge your batteries after a hard days walking or cycling over the Pennines!

“Had an amazing stay, accommodation is beautiful, not to mention the view & village.  We have really enjoyed our stay, and will recommend to all our friends & family.  Always nice to stay somewhere very homely.  Carole & Simon are lovely hosts, and have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable.  Thank you.”

“5 stars isn’t enough! Just incredible amenities, location, welcome and presentation. Carole and her husband welcomed us and were delightful. Nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful walks and a great little pub in easy walking distance. Sweet little garden to relax in. Hands down the best amenities of any airbnb we’ve ever stayed in (enormous welcome basket, jacuzzi bath, Bose sound bar, netflix, coffee pods, remote control velux/blinds/mood lighting…the list goes on!) book this now. its perfect.”

Callum and MarissaEdinburgh, July 2018

“Really enjoyed it.  Location perfect for cycling.  Cottage definitely lives up to its rating.  Hares, swallows and sparrows (and the owl) a nice bonus.”

Dufton Barn Holidays

Boiling in Brum. Sweltering in the South. Melting in the Midlands. Had enough of that hot weather over 25C? Remember when grass looked like, well, grass rather than straw? Well in Cumbria its still green and we have some of that wet stuff occasionally in the sky with temperatures a lot cooler at 20C! Well it is the Lake District. So why not book now at Shepherds View for a more relaxed and comfortable holiday - booking now available for September. Also the last week in August which includes the famous Fellside Royal Show Dufton Agricultural Show and Sheepdog Trials.
Photos show gardens in London and in Dufton!
