Howgills Barn is a unique place to stay at in Sedbergh which is large in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and near the Lake District. Our barn is a perfect place to get together with friends and family as there is so much space and the scenery is breath taking. The barn is set up a winding lane but is only a few minutes walk from the independent cafes and shops in town. There are lots of things for the family to see and do (if you want to!!) Our accommodation is close to the beautiful market towns of Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale and approximately a half hour drive from the Lake District. Our accommodation offers; - 8 en-suite bedrooms (sleeping up to 35 guests) - large lounge - 2 kitchens - upstairs lounge - games room - outside games field - drying room - hot tub (which we offer additional charge for this) - we are dog friendly - parking up to 20 cars - wi fi - we can organise a whole host of activities for your visit and we can even arrange hot food to be delivered to your door!

Great place for a relaxed stag do. The facilities were excellent and the owners were extremely helpful. The location is really nice especially when the sun shines. Having a bathroom per room was a godsend.

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location, we were well looked after by our host (who was friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive). The barn was well equipped to a good standard; I can’t think of anything we would have wanted in the kitchen that wasn’t provided, and

Howgills Barn is a brilliant place to have a gathering, and great value for money. It's in a lovely area with lots of beautiful countryside. The rooms are comfortable and the social areas are perfect for relaxing in.

Response from Nigel C, Owner at Howgills Barn
Responded Dec 27, 2018
We are so glad that you all enjoyed your time with us and in our beautiful area of Sedbergh. So many people used to visit and then go off into deep Lakes area or other wonderfully famous areas and then miss all the incredible benefits of being here in Sedbergh at the foot of the Howgill Fells. Look forward to your return sometime in the future.

ive read that you have to pay for the hot tub does anyone know how much this is please
Hi tracy Sorry we missed this but it seems that we have reviews across different places in TA. The Hot Tub hire is same as last year at £130 hire plus £20 per night stayed service visit fee so a 2 night weekend is £170 and a 3 night is £190. This compares with the £250 hire fee to other companies that visitors used to pay when requesting a polystyrene tub to be brought in for the weekend with no onward monitoring. Nigel
