“Great Bank Holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Me and 6 other people stayed here on Bank Holiday Sunday.

We were travelling there to camp and the couple who own the farm are absolutely lovely! More than accommodating. They said that the door was open all night if we needed anything (use the toilet, shower etc.) and we thought that was great.

They said that we could pitch our tents wherever we liked on their property and that noise was not an issue.

We had a lovely night and there are animals there as it is a working farm but we loved them!

I would definitely recommend this B&B for a lovely night or two away in beautiful surroundings. For £5 each to camp for the night it was great value for money too!

A good value B&B for our overnight stay on the Pennine Way. It is very much a working hill farm with livestock all around but Mike and Emma make you feel very welcome and part of the farm. You can make tea and coffee in the kitchen whenever you like and have use of own lounge. Rooms were large airy and bright. Very peaceful, it was great to wake up to bird song and to look out on to the beautiful countryside. The meadows were at the very best in June. Good wholesome home cooked evening meal. Yes the bathroom facilities are family shared, downstairs and a little limited, shower and toilet in one room and bath, toilet and basin in another, but this was not a problem at all for out party of 4. If you choose to stay in working farm type accommodation then you have to be a little flexible. We all really enjoyed the stay. A good different experience which is what holidays are all about.

We stayed here as party of 9 ( adults and children).. what a great couple who run the farm , excellent hosts!!
They welcomed us into their home come business and could not have offered more or being more accomodating. We were aksed what time we wanted our breakfast cooking in the morning ( a full cooked English for everyone in the farmhouse!!) and the wild caming field with vistas over the moors was amazing!

The couple who own this farm are so welcoming and are two really nice people, they went out of their way to make us feel at home, even though we were only camping in one of their fields!

They cooked us breakfast (a very, very well spent £5) and they let us use their facilities (I even had the luxury of a lovely warm bath!)

There is only one down side, well two actually, you will not want to leave, and you won't want to tell others, but you will have to!

Amazing! Had such a great time, thank you both! (Julie & Frank Knight & fellow campers)

Room Tip: Book for more than one night!

Had the misfortune of staying here one night. Hosts arrived 2 hours after check in time and completely ignored us. Bathrooms downstairs (bedrooms upstairs) seem to double as the owners bathrooms as well - unclean. Entrance was very "working farm" and not for the fainthearted with numerous animals and their dropping around the place - very dirty. Certainty not a well run B&B - seemed to be more a sideline than a business. Not to be repeated. Beware of the aggresive geese if you can find the entrance to the place.

Stayed one night during the Pennine Way. It's a short distance uphill off the path, just past the youth hostel. I had some difficulty finding the door and walked through a pen with a young calf in it - the adventure began! Another guest found her way in around the back of the house - apparently there's no "right" way to come in, you just find your way in! There were lots of animals about with various poultry coming to say hello as I had a cup of tea in the garden. This is very much a working farm and you become one with the farming experience in staying here. This is the opposite of a pretentious B&B - it's run by genuine hardworking people who invite you to make yourself at home and to use their kitchen freely. I had dinner here, which was delicious. Breakfast was late and a bit burnt, but I can't fault the loveliness of the hosts and felt honoured to stay in their home and to meet the various birds, sheep, cows, that all seem part of the family here.

Don't go expecting a pristine formal place. This is as informal, genuine, and home-like as you'll find. Emma was quick to respond to anything I needed, in between tending the sheep. There are two shared-facilities toilets that are downstairs from the guest rooms, but only one has a sink, so it can be a short queue if all 3 guest rooms are booked. Emma gave me a choice between all 3 guest rooms when I arrived - they were all very large and spacious with high quality bedding (such a comfortable sleep!) and clean. Two of the rooms have a double bed and a single bed, one room had just a double bed. I felt cold - on mentioning this to Emma, she was quick to put the heating on. I wanted a hairdryer. On asking Emma, she swiftly found one for me. If you need something that isn't there, these hosts are happy to help. A good sleep. Lovely, friendly people.

The reception from Emma and Michael is as warm as the open fire in their lounge. A good home cooked breakast starts the day and prepares you for adventures such as High Force, Cow Green reservoir and the many circular walks you can choose from, created by a landscape built by time itself. Finally come home to rest those tired feet and be greeted by the Gander, Peacocks and farm animals who insist on not being ignored. Put your feet up and relax as dinner awaits those adventurous souls.
