Nestled close to the relics and ruins of Barden Tower, Barden Bunk Barn has been lovingly converted from former stables to a unique accommodation sleeping up to 24 guests. Situated on the renowned Bolton Abbey Estate, this grade 1 listed residence is one of Yorkshire’s pivotal sites of historical interest. Not only ideal for the fabulous rolling hills and surrounding deep valleys, the site boasts superb panoramic views within private grounds, making it the ideal retreat for a rejuvenating break.

The barn caters for all events from weddings, to outdoor sports clubs, schools, scout groups and is increasingly popular for corporate events. We have hosted team building events for some of the countries largest companies. Our unique medieval props and furnishings are also ideal for a memorable experience.

If you crave a night off from self catering then the on-site Priests House Restaurant allows guests to consume a delicious meal with drinks without the worry of driving! Perfect!
