Hunted Howgills Barn
It’s all been kept ‘hush hush’ at Howgills Barn, as last May two red-faced lads sprinted up our lane, telling Howgills Barn owner, Liz Close that ‘they were on the run!’ As it transpired, the two lads turned out to be Jo (Appleton) and Dan (Murphy) from the channel 4 show ‘Hunted’. For any of you that have spent January hibernating the basic premise of the programme is that three duos evade a team of former police and intelligence professionals, using advance surveillance systems, for 25 days. The fugitives are chasing a £100,000 prize. Jo and Dan were just expecting a camping Barn and were quite chuffed to find our 8 bedroom en-suite Barn with outside hot tub. Let’s face it, they were in need of a rest after the tough experience of living life, on the run.
We refrained our ‘twitching fingers’ from the temptations of twitter and facebook to ensure that Jo and Dan’s efforts were kept under wraps. Really excited to see Thursday episode to see how far they make it and of course, if our beautiful Barn makes an appearance! Lets us know if you spot us! Don’t forget that we are offering midweek specials too, so if you fancy a break away and a bit of star gazing from the hot tub, please get in touch!
Hunted Howgills Barn – the video!
Ok, ok, we’re never going to be professsionals, but we couldn’t help but capture a couple of seconds of footage whilst Jo and Dan stayed with us!
