About Shepherds View

Shepherd's View has stunning views and all the luxuries you could wish for in a romantic holiday cottage in the North Pennines. The charming barn conversion is in the Eden Valley, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Pennine Way, with incredible views from the feature window you’ll want to gaze upon from morning to night. Furnished with a superking-sized bed, plush velvet sofa and a log burner, it is a year-round favourite for couples who love that it feels so remote while within walking distance of The Stag Inn in Dufton and only three miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland. With other features, including a Jacuzzi bath and underfloor heating, you won't be surprised that Visit Britain awarded Shepherd's View a highly-coveted 5-Star Gold rating and the owners have just won Self Catering Accommodation of the Year at the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2022.

Dufton is a peaceful Cumbrian village in a fantastic location on the edge of the Lake District. Hikers and cyclists appreciate the green filagree of footpaths, bridleways and trails. There are country lanes with mountain road climbs, gentle riverside walks with spots to fish, and a wealth of flora and fauna thriving in the protected environment. Walk along the Pennine Way to High Cup Nick, or take yourself to Dufton Ghyll or the Neolithic standing stones known affectionately as Long Meg and Her Daughters. You're not far from the Northern Lake District, and you can add places like Aira Force in Ullswater, Blencathra, Askham Fell, and Derwent Water to your itinerary.

Appleby has a great choice of food shops and places to eat, so self-catering is a breeze whether or not you want to cook. Penrith is around 14 miles away with more choice, and you can also arrange for Asda and Sainsbury's to deliver groceries to your door.
