Acorn Bank Garden is a National Trust garden, best known for its collection of herbs. Wander along the beck to the partially restored watermill.
YHA Dufton is a great base for outdoor activity breaks and exploring the wild moorland and green valleys which characterise the area. This accommodation in Cumbria is the perfect opportunity to stay in Europe’s first Geopark, an area of great geological interest.
YHA Dufton faces the pretty village green near to the Pennine Way, and is perfectly placed to give easy access to Cross Fell and High Cup Nick. The area is great for walking and cycling holidays or just a relaxing weekend break in a quiet village.
