OverviewA stunning location on a popular bridleway with far reaching views to Ribblehead, Park Fell and Ingleborough. This old agricultural building has been renovated to a very high standard with bedrooms, showers, toilets and drying room on the ground floor and an upstairs open-plan area with exposed beams, excellent kitchen facilities, dining area and seating area with large, comfortable sofas. A small resources room has a good selection of books, maps and games. There is free superfast fibre WiFi but limited mobile phone reception. The Dales High Way long distance path passes the door and the Pennine Journey LDP is just a field away, making it an ideal overnight stop. The Three Peaks can be walked from the door avoiding the crowds at Horton. Plenty of other walking, biking and caving opportunities in the area as well as the Ingleborough NNR across the valley and the limestone pavement of Scales Moor a short walk away. Broadrake is in a fantastic Dark Skies area too.

September 30th 2020
Broadrake Bunkbarn is currently offering sole use for up to 6 people for £350 for a 2 night weekend, or £300 for 2 nights mid-week (Mon-Weds). We can also take a single household alone or with their support bubble (in England, that is an adult living alone, or with children under 18). If you have more than 6 in your household (incl. support bubble) it’s an extra £25 pppn at weekends or £20 pppn midweek. If you come mid-week as a smaller group, then we can pro-rata the cost. Currently we are not asking for deposits, but for full payment just one week before your stay; we’ll keep in touch if Covid-19 guidelines / restrictions / legislations start going pear-shaped before then.
October will see the trees lose their leaves and November and December can be stunning up here with those iconic bare hawthorn trees against limestone pavements and short-grazed grass revealing the underlying shapes of the Dales drystone landscape. Plenty of high and low level walks from the door to give you a fresh air blast from up on the tops or along the valley in all directions; in winter sunshine, the views are truly amazing at Broadrake.
Even if the weather is inclement, why not bring your crafting hobbies to keep you busy whilst weather watching through glazed roof lights from inside the barn. Plenty of flexible space and extra tables available for artists’ workspace, sewing machines, jigsaws, paper crafts and comfy sofas for those cosy knitting or crochet projects. For those that want some gentle indoor exercise, tables can be moved to free up space for yoga/pilate sessions on the waxed oak floor with underfloor heating.
We have fibre broadband wired directly into the building and if you are working from home again, why not consider taking a break away for a change of scene. An office space can be set up so you’ll be able to work in peace and quiet, with excellent internet facilities and opportunities for escaping directly to the great outdoors for breaks.
Please look ahead at our availability calendar so we can provisionally book you in so you don’t miss out. We have some free weekends and good midweek availability. It is possible that other weekends may become available as new guidelines may not work for our existing bookings.

Broadrake Bunkbarn is offerring sole use for up to 10 people for half price – that’s £450 for a 2 night weekend for 10. Additional guests charged per head.
In the first instance we will just be taking bookings for sole use and it looks likely that we will be able to receive groups consisting of one or two households. Separate households will need to practice social distancing but as the Bunkbarn usually sleeps up to 20 that should not be too difficult.
We will offer sole use for up to 10 people at half price, so that’s £450 for a two night weekend or £180 per night midweek. If you have more than 10 across your two households it’s an extra £25 pppn at weekends or £20 pppn midweek.
Do get in touch if you are interested. We have some free weekends and good midweek availability. It is possible that other weekends may become available if the new guidelines don’t work for our existing bookings.
