Check Availability and book online

Our spacious properties comprise a 17th century listed traditional Westmorland longhouse (The  Farmhouse) and 2 barn conversions (The Barn and Dairy) set around a courtyard. All the properties have been renovated to a high standard and are very well equipped, with quality fittings and all modern conveniences, but retaining much original character. All our properties are walker, child and dog friendly and we have an undercover BBQ area plus our unique dome.

Please note we are no longer letting out Sycamore House, so our capacity is now 23  people with the possible addition of 2 children on flexible beds that we can provide.

Fellside cottages are a group of 3 spacious cottages and barn conversions sleeping up to 23, but well suited to couples or smaller groups and families as well, for either a relaxed or an active break. We are situated in the Eden Valley in Cumbria, in the peaceful and picturesque village of Dufton, a conservation area easily reached from the M6 or the A1. Our traditional village pub, which serves good food and real ale, is within easy walking distance, as is the village tea shop. The beautiful countryside that surrounds us gives numerous and varied walking and cycling opportunities right from the doorstep. We look straight out onto the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the stunning day walk of High Cup Nick right on the doorstep, as well as many less strenuous walks in the lovely Eden Valley. We are also located within easy driving distance of the Lakes, the Yorkshire Dales, Hadrian’s Wall, the Solway coast and Scotland. The cottages are very dog friendly and the area is perfect for a holiday with your pet.


Our 3 cottages (sleeping 4, 8 and 10) have full self catering facilities, and all are decorated and equipped to a high standard, to provide luxurious accommodation whilst retaining numerous traditional features.

We have plenty of space for groups to get together for socialising, but also space to have time apart. We also have facilities for small or large groups to celebrate special occasions, including a marquee, and we can provide many options and ideas for catering.


Activities available through local providers include canoeing, cycle hire, climbing, ghyll scrambling, historical guided walks, horse or pony riding, golf, off-road driving, fishing and even an aerial rope playground and a zip wire half way up a mountain. Alternatively you can visit an ice cream farm, or just relax in the garden and enjoy our unique dome.

For short breaks we try to be flexible with arrival and departure times to allow our guests as long a stay as possible. If you have any questions or special requests please do get in touch.
