Group Accommodation

Howgills Barn Facilities

Are you looking for a character property with bags of outside space for a group celebration? Whether it's letting the kids run free on our games field or shooting some archery arrows for a Hen do; Howgills Barn offers a perfect country escape. Its location up a private lane in the charming market town of Sedbergh provides easy access to the Lakes and the Dales, so you can explore this outside playground until your heart is content. Or maybe just sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views of Winder fell, or stargaze from the undercover hot tub in the garden. TV room, games room, and outside sun terrace with firepit and BBQs means you can really make the most of those warm summer evenings.


- There are 8 en-suite bunk bedrooms sleeping up to 35 guests. 

-Bursting with character our Barn offers a spacious lounge with an open-plan dining area.  Curl your toes on the warm flagged floors that benefit from underfloor heating. Or find the perfect spot to gaze out of the large windows to take in the fells and get lost in your thoughts.


- The upstairs mezzanine offers the perfect space to enjoy satellite TV and the glazed partition means you can still keep an eye on what is happening below in the lounge! You can curl up and read a book or the kids can enjoy playing with our games and toys.


- Our two commercial kitchens provide everything you'll need to whip up a feast. Or if you fancy a break, we work with a local chef who can be booked to provide a variety of culinary delights for you; from handmade pizzas, tray bakes, or three-course meals. Click here for more info.

-There's a drying room for all your kit and downstairs there is a washer and dryer. Please let us know if you would like complimentary high chairs or travel cots.  

- We're not sure who likes our games room more? We call it the 'tractor shed' and you can play darts or a game of pool.  

- Even though you'll be in rural heaven, you don't need to worry about not being able to connect with the outside world with our wifi.

- We're all about family stays and that includes bringing the family faithful dog too! You can wander from the Barn straight up the fell so your dog will return home rested too!

- You'll feel like you're in the middle of nowhere but it's only a 10-minute walk down a country lane into the centre of Sedbergh which is handy for icecreams or perhaps a pint of local ale?


- To the front of Howgills Barn, there is a gravel forecourt that provides parking for up to 15 cars.


- To the rear of the Barn is a terrace for outdoor dining, with BBQs and a fire pit for cozying around for an evening. The Barn's position at the end of a private lane means there is very little light pollution so the dark skies are all the evening entertainment that is needed. Well, maybe a bag of marshmallows too.  If you need to warm up you can always have a dip in the undercover hot tub.

- As you drive up to the Barn you'll notice we have a 5-acre games field. Egg and spoon race anyone? Or maybe a water bomb fight on a hot day or a game of rounders?

Things to do...

- There's lots to see and do in the local area.  Or get some inspiration from our blog.

If you're looking for a treat for a special occasion we work with Activity Partners. Most activities can be delivered at our Barn and some in the local area. Duck herding, cocktail making, and bouncy inflatables to name but a few!
