There is a splendid walk through the wooded valley of Dufton Ghyll, home to red squirrels, foxes and a variety of birds as well as giving the children an opportunity to fish for tiddlers. In the village, you can enjoy an excellent meal at the popular inn on the village green. For the more adventurous the Pennine Way passes through the village and Dufton is also on the National Cycle network.

Free livery is available on request. Fishing and golf available in the historic market town of Appleby, 2 miles. An ideal holiday base. Shop 2 miles, pub 1 mile.
The cottage was situated in such a peaceful and tranquil spot, perfect walking distance to the local pub! The cottage its self had everything we needed and was perfect for our saluki grey hound and bulldog to play safely in the enclosed yard. The cottage was very clean and spacious, even though there were 10 of us and 2 dogs we were not on top of eachother! We will definitely we going there again and the price was well worth it ! Going to try in summer too to test out the bbq in the yard!
