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!

“Five star is an understatement!!  The best we have stayed in, nothing has been wanting.  The welcome basket just added to perfection.  The village is lovely, the pub is friendly and the food delicious.  Managed a couple of walks when the rain ceased, but aim to do more when we return in May.  A great distraction from lockdowns and infections!”

“What a gorgeous place with everything you could wish for.  Awesome welcome basket.  Fantastic local walks.  We’ve enjoyed staying here immensely and we can’t wait to return.”

“Another lovely stay at Shepherds View.  We enjoyed our walks in the snow.  Thank you for the delicious treats.  See you after the next lockdown!”

“What a beautiful part of the world, thanks so much for having us!  We got thoroughly, wonderfully muddy on our week and enjoyed all the fresh air and scenery!  Thanks!”

“Thank you Simon and Carole, you have created a wonderfully peaceful, beautifully presented and thought-out space.  Everything we needed and more!  Perfect!!”
