Further details indoors

Howgills Bunk Barn is a 2005 converted barn with underfloor heating and 8 en-suite bedrooms each having 4 beds (3 of which are double) allowing 35 bed spaces. The views from the Barn are directly towards the Howgill Fells being Winder and Crook situated directly behind Sedbergh Town. We are confident that when you read our TripAdvisor reviews you will see that we can offer a great place for very many different kinds of gatherings, - Birthday, Anniversary, Special dates, Weddings, Corporate meetings, Training venue, Team Building, Activity base, Youth schemes (eg Duke of Edinburgh), Old University pals meeting up, Sports fans get together ( In or Out of season), and for what ever reason anyone can think of .

Further details outdoors

Situated at the foot of the Howgill Fells with Settlebeck Ghyll running through the grounds, Howgills Bunk Barn enjoys a fantastic location in this historic settlement. Spacious outside facilities with no problems of noise for neighbours (or to your party if you want the tranquility), then you can enjoy the best of both worlds with a short walk of 400 yards into Sedbergh Town.

I have ticked 'Secure Parking' because although we do not have a garage to lock cars up in, we can make the road inaccessible for vehicle arrival and departure by arrangement with the owner if necessary - although I would not have a clue as to why you would want that here.

The Cumbria/Lake District

Englands Lake District has its share of rain to make it as beautiful and green as it is, but when the sun shines, there's hardly a better place to be than right here inbetween the Lake District National Park and inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park at Howgills Bunk Barn on the edge of the famous Howgill Fells so beloved of famous walker Alfred Wainwright. Sedbergh is an historic Market town granted a market charter by King Henry III in 1251. Nearby attractions by car are Hadrians Wall near to County capital Carlisle, Ingleton Caves, Hawes cheese making factory and famous Kendal mintcake.


Restored and rejuvenated Farfield Mill buzzes with local artisans and craftspeople as welll as a more modern clothing factory of Farfield Clothing in the heart of Sedbergh. Famous for producing some outstanding sports people representing their country, Sedbergh School has been a backstay to the Towns economic development since 1525. The Howgill fells stand high to the North of Sedbergh and make for fantastic walking not as testing as some of the higher Lakeland Mountains. Kirkby Lonsdale is reputed to have some of the loveliest views over the River Lune most notably from Ruskins View. Dentdale and Garsdale valleys lead through ever tightening and narrow valleys and both can access the Settle Carlisle Railway line through stations high up.
