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!

“Third visit and definitely not the last!  Once more everything is perfect, even the weather took a turn for the better and the sun came out.  Thanks again to Carole & Simon, friendly as always.”

“A great week and we’ve been very comfortable.  Enjoyed the hamper – thank you.  A very convenient place for visiting a wide area.  We hope to be back sometime!  PS on a clear night the stars are fantastic!”

“We have had a super time, so relaxing.  Everything has been top notch – and the weather has been pretty good as well.  Carole & Simon have been very helpful with advice on what to see & the walks instructions proved very useful.  It has been good to get away on holiday again.  Couldn’t have been better.  PS we have already booked for next year!”

“A first class cottage well worth the 5 star rating, wonderful views with fantastic walks all around without having to travel.  A warm welcome from Carole & Simon.  Best place we have ever stayed in the Lakes Area including hotels.  The Stag Inn Pub 2 mins down the road serving great food and drink.  Loved our 3 days short break here so much we are coming back next year for a week.  Thank you for the lovely hamper!”

“What a gem of a find the place was!  Perfect location, who wouldn’t want views over glorious open countryside?  Everything at SV is high end and the attention to detail is superb!  We have been supremely comfortable here.  We came to walk and we have walked our socks off!  We brought books and maps which we never opened thanks to the detailed walks left by our hosts…did all the local walks including Dufton Pike and High Cup.  Amazing views both of them.  Food at the Stag is good, cakes at the tea shop delicious and take a trip to Brough Castle for the ice cream.  Thank you for having us Carole & Simon and for the lovely welcome hamper.  We will return!”

Fancy a romantic short break this winter with your special someone?

Relax in the hydrotherapy jacuzzi bath. Snuggle up in front of the cosy log burner and enjoy the underfloor heating. Set the atmosphere with mood lighting and your favourite tunes playing through the Bose speaker. Gaze out at the magnificent view from the feature window as you lounge on the Hypnos superking bed with dressing gowns added as standard for your comfort. And when you’re hungry, walk the short distance to the local pub serving fantastic local ales and great food or cater for yourself in the well equipped kitchen with superb local produce from nearby Appleby.
