Fellside Cottages are located in the picturesque, tranquil village of Dufton in the Eden Valley and provide an ideal venue for large groups of friends or families who want to holiday together or celebrate a special occasion. Sitting at the foot of the Pennines in Cumbria, Fellside Cottages can accommodate up to thirty guests in four properties, set around a courtyard and are ideal for those who enjoy outdoor activities with wonderful walks starting directly from the front door.
Conveniently located, the peaceful pretty village of Dufton has a traditional village green and pub and this beautiful conservation area is easily accessible from the M6 and A1 (via the A66). Simply relax in the garden and soak up the stunning scenery or take a leisurely stroll to the village pub for a pint or something to eat.
Alternatively, explore the areas many attractions. Within an hour's drive you have a "Via Ferratta" - an exciting way to get up a mountain; pony trekking; quad biking; paint balling; sailing; kayaking and "Go Ape" - a tree top playground for all ages with zip wires. Or for those wanting something a little more sedate, try your hand at a bread making course at a village bakery; take the little ones to an animal park; indulge yourself at an ice cream farm or sit back on a steam train and take in the scenery. Fellside Cottages are also within easy driving distance of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish Borders, making it an ideal base from which to explore the North West of England.
For those who want to stay closer to home and explore the beautiful surrounding area on foot or by bike, there are lovely walks (from a gentle stroll to a more challenging hike) and cycle routes into the Pennines from the front door. Dogs are welcome by prior arrangement and are sure to enjoy the lovely walks.
