Barbon is probably one of the quieter villages in the area. Situated on a back road from Kirkby Lonsdale to Dent, it was made even quieter by the closing of its railway station on a now disused branch line that linked the Leeds to Lancaster railway.

The village's busiest two days of the year are when the Barbon Hill Climb comes to town. The village is invaded by cars and motorbikes of all ages to take part in hill climbs up the drive of Barbon Manor organised by the Westmorland Motor Club.
Nearby is Bullpot Farm, which is famous for being a centre of caving.
