Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Sycamore House is a spacious late 17th century listed sandstone cottage comfortably sleeping 8. It has 4 bedrooms and loads of bathroom facilities, including 2 full ensuites. Formerly a pub called The Black Bull Inn, it is full of character with many beams and huge stone fireplaces with logburners. Recently renovated, it provides well equipped and very spacious luxury accommodation.

Combined with Midtown Farm next door we can take groups of up to 30 people.

We are located in the Eden Valley with easy access to the M6 and A1, but in the peaceful village of Dufton which is a conservation area on the edge of the North Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty. We have a variety of local attractions for all ages and are an easy drive from the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Scotland. Our area is ideal for walking and cycling from the doorstep, including the spectacular glaciated valley of High Cup Nick in the Pennines. Alternatively just take a short stroll to our village pub or tea room.

SHORT BREAK PRICES Please note, we have introduced a new low price for a 2 night break and additional nights above 2 will be at a cheaper nightly rate than quoted by the system (eg a third night costs just £90 and not the £225 quoted). When booking for more than 2 nights we suggest you contact us for a price as we think you will be glad you did!
