About The Dairy, Midtown Farm

Midtown Farm offers a choice of self-catering accommodation accommodating couples through to large groups. Located in the beautiful tranquil village of Dufton, Mitown Farm nestles at the base of the Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cumbria and is within easy driving distance of The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders, all providing a wealth and diversity of attractions. Located in the village of Dufton, Midtown Farm has easy access to the M6 or A1 (via the A66) and is a delightful conservation area with a traditional village green and pub.

The Dairy sleeps up to ten guests and is a spacious substantial holiday home which provides a comfortable well equipped base from which to explore the many attractions of the area. The owners have carefully restored The Dairy to provide welcoming accommodation with lots of charm. The rooms are laid out across three floors with a layout that allows guests to make the most of the magnificent views over Dufton Pike and the Pennines.

For those who want to explore this beautiful area on foot or by bike, there are good walks (both challenging and gentle) and cycle routes into the Pennines from the front door. You are also welcome to bring your dog (by prior arrangement) to enjoy the lovely walks. Alternatively simply relax in the garden or take a short stroll to the village pub for some friendly hospitality, good food and a pint of ale!

There are plenty of attractions and things to do within an hours drive including: A "Via Ferratta" - an exciting new way to get up a mountain; paint balling; pony trekking; quad biking; "Go Ape" - an aerial playground with zip wires; bread making courses at an organic village bakery; steam trains; animal parks; an ice cream farm; sailing and canoeing.

Appleby-in-Westmorland is the closest market town and offers a variety of shops including a top quality butchers and bakers. The nearest large town is Penrith which is just twelve miles away, offering all the usual amenities such as supermarkets, cinema, and plenty of other shops.
