Ideal walking base

This traditional, red sandstone barn has been tastefully converted to create two holiday homes which retain a good deal of charm and character. Surrounded by stunning scenery, the cottages stand on the edge of the picturesque and peaceful small fellside village of Dufton, which has a good pub on the village green and is on the Pennine Way. There is excellent walking and cycling from the doorstep and one of the highlights is High Cup Nick which is a spectacular geological feature and walkers are rewarded with an amazing view along the Eden Valley to the Lakeland fells. The ancient, attractive market town of Appleby, 3 miles, stands on the River Eden and is on the famous and scenic Carlisle to Settle train line. Dufton provides a good base from which to explore the contrasting but equally beautiful Lakes and Dales National Parks. The Scottish border and Hadrian’s Wall are also an easy, pretty drive away. Have an afternoon tea at the tea room, 200 yards. Shop 3 miles, pub with restaurant 200 yards.

    We have been here three times now. As you can tell we love it here. Perfect location to walk around 'High Cup Nick'. Great local pub with wonderful food and drink. Close to the Lakes too

    It's not clean, the owner doesn't care even too much trouble to empty the dustbin. Would not ever recommend this property

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; The bins were emptied every week and when the customer arrived they were asked if they wanted a cleaning service every week during their months stay in the cottage and they refused this offer.

    Perfect venue as overspill accommodation for a family gathering elsewhere in the village. With ample parking and easy to get to, the cottage gave our guests everything they needed for a convenient and cosy stay.

    The owners seem to think going round with a vacuum cleaner and wiping the kitchen work top is all that is needed. Cobwebs everywhere - old, dusty ones, not fresh! Tiled floor filthy - has it ever been cleaned? Window bilnds are filthy - obviously not been cleaned for years! Oven was filthy - too dirty to dare cooking a pizza in it. Fridge door opens the wrong way - the door is reversible (a 10 minute job), so why hasn't it beed switched round? Mould on the bathroom wall, and on the shower cubicle; shower-head mouldy. Bathroom extractor fan filthy. Shaving light loose - moves down the wall when you switch it on! Layer of dust on the back of the bathroom door. No recycling facilities at the property (Cumbria is still in the dark ages - you have to take plastics 3 miles to Appleby; card, cans, glass have to be taken half a mile to the bins in the village centre. Shame about the above, the location is very good, and the layout of the barn conversion is probably the best laid-out holiday let we've stayed in in the past 10 years. The staff at the village pub (The Stag) seemed grumpy and the food was poor - only ate there once. Pub (Masons Arms) in Long Marton (the neighbouring village) was excellent - friendly staff, great food, and cheaper that the Stag in Dufton.
