A bit more about us
Howgills Barn is located in Sedbergh which is nestled between the beauty of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.  Sedbergh is only a 10 minute drive off junction 37 of the M6 and you step in to a tranquil world of rolling green fells, ‘old worldly’ cobbled streets and fields grazed by our local ‘Rough Fell sheep’.

Howgills Barn is a beautifully renovated Barn that sleeps up to 35 guests and it’s private location in 5 acres of grounds means that you can relax and enjoy the stunning panorama of the Howgill Fells. Luxurious touches like underfloor heating, Sky TV, Sonos music system and the hot tub on the patio, make it a stay to remember.  Not forgetting the onsite activities that we can offer you, if you really fancy burning off a ‘few mince pies’! We are a small family run business and our aim is to offer you a tailored holiday, that you will remember for life.

We are ranked as the No 1 place to stay in Sedbergh on Tripadvisor where over 145 groups have rated us 5 out of 5 stars.

“The barn is just the perfect place for a large group of people to stay together. I have been for many years now, with many families. It works so well because the children have the space to play together without any roads or traffic to worry about and the adults can relax and socialise too! The hot tub is a hit with everyone and the addition of the fire pit this year was a bonus. It was lovely to sit around the fire and look up at the stars. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!” August guest – Howgills Barn
