  • "Really lovely, well kept, well equipped house."

    Absolutely nothing to complain about. Perfect location for walking sections of the Pennine Way. Excellent food available in The Stag Inn opposite.

    Thank you for your positive comments. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "We really liked the house, it's location and facilities."

    It felt warm and welcoming, although some of us found the beds a little uncomfortable, but that was due largely to personal preference rather than a lack of quality. We enjoyed the pub, which served good beer and food and, in the short time we were there, the walking from the village.

  • "The cottage is absolutely stunning both charming and comfortable."

    A high standard of cleanliness throughout and has everything you will need for an enjoyable stay. Dufton is a lovely village and everyone very friendly. The pub opposite is definitely worth a visit the food was amazing. Had lots of lovely dog walks in the area, a really great stay was had by all of us.

    We're so glad you appreciated the cottage and enjoyed your stay in Dufton. Property Owner

    All comforts provided for. Quiet and wonderful for wildlife and walking. Warm and cosy although slightly disappointed that I hadn’t realised that it was not a real wood burner in the lounge housing the tv. Other lounge and wood burner very nice. Great idea to have extra wood at a cost in the shed which saved a lot of trouble. Pub excellent with good food.

  • "We had a lovely weekend."

    The house was warm on arrival on the Friday. The beds and bedding were amazing. The only little things that were noted were bath sheets in all the bedrooms, as my friends bath towel was a little revealing :-) We also had to put the hot water onto constant, to manage the capacity. Also, some minor touch up on the cutlery draw and maybe some more comfortable bar stools as we did hang in the kitchen ( which had everything we needed minus a wok ) lol. Those present seats were not a winner. However, the pub over the road, the location and the cottage were amazing, It was also stated a TV by the fire, as I think we would have got more use from the fire. However, I’d 100% live in Dufton and loved the cottage. Ps if you want to eat in the pub on arrival ‘pre book’ we couldn’t get in the Friday or Saturday but got a table for 4 on the Sunday. Thank you Carwood and Dufton a much needed relaxed weekend after studying for 4 years ;-) 2 x Newly qualified nurses

    We were three generations together for the holiday and the facilities proved to be just perfect. Whilst not in the Lake District national park it was within easy reach and in many respects we were as impressed with the local countryside as we were with lakes. Great dog walking country and easy walking country for all three generations.

    Thank you for your very kind comments. We are glad that you appreciated the beauty of the North Pennines AONB. It is somewhat 'undiscovered' because most people visiting Cumbria just head straight for the Lake District. The result is beautiful countryside without hoards of tourists! If it was anywhere else it would probably be over-run. Lets hope the area remains an 'away from it all secret'! Property Owner

    I needn’t have worried, it’s a lovely cottage in one of our favourite locations, and felt like home away from home. The kitchen-diner is beautifully appointed, with underfloor heating (which our dog loved), plenty of cupboard space and a large fridge-freezer. Being Nov/Dec we didn’t sit in the garden but it catches the afternoon sun and would be a great place to sit with a drink in the evening. Having The Stag Inn just across the green, plus being on the Pennine Way and close to Appleby and Penrith makes this a perfect getaway whether for a weekend or, as we discovered, a month. I recommend Carwood without reservation.

Appleby-in-Westmorland 3 miles; Penrith 13 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Dufton is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and Eden Valley. The village has a pub, which serves good food, an Agricultural Show held on the last Saturday in August, and is just three miles from the historic town of Appleby. At the heart of the lush Eden Valley, Appleby-in-Westmorland is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain; still today, many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Visit Appleby in July and experience the atmosphere of the Jazz Festival, which is fast becoming a popular attraction, enjoy a walk on the Pennine Way at Dufton, or explore one of the local cycle trails. With the delightful Pooley Bridge, Penrith and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
