“Lovely stay, excellent food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We have just returned from a two night break at the Old dairy farm. From the outside this place doesn't look anything special but inside is like a different world. It is modern and and you are greeted with a warm welcome from Paul. The bed and breakfast is about six miles from Hawes and is surrounded by hills. It is very peaceful indeed. The food is outstanding. We stayed in room three which is lovely. It has a small balcony and the biggest bathroom ever. The price is above the average but it is worth it. There are only three rooms so be warned that it is very quiet but if you are looking for a peaceful break then this is for you.

If you want to get away for a relaxing, away- from-it-all-break The Old Dairy Farm is the place to go.
You will be given a warm welcome, accompanied by delicious home-made cake and coffee, then shown to a lovely comfortable room with excellent on-suite bathroom facilities. I can only write about room 1, but I understand that room three has a balcony overlooking the Dales and a jacuzzi, this room does incur a supplement, but the people staying in it whilst we were there said it was well worth it.
The guest house is short drive from Hawes and is surrounded by hills, trees and sheep, it's a really peaceful setting.
There is no need to go out searching for somewhere to eat, just go downstairs and order a perfect home-cooked meal, cooked by Pam and served by an attentive Paul (the owners), first rate!
All in all a perfect retreat.

The old dairy farm is one of the best places I've stayed! Paul & Pam are a wonderful, friendly, helpful couple. We had tea and cake on arrival before being shown to our room. The room was cosy, I would have preferred a bigger room but it had everything we needed for our weekend away. The water is a little on the brown side but they provide bottled water I the rooms. I have to mention the food... Pam is an amazing chef! The food is excellent!!!

We will definitely go again and recommend it to our friends and family :-)

You will get the warmest welcome ever here and the most fabulous food. The bedrooms are wonderful and full of character and yet very traditional. From when you get there you are made to feel so welcome and comfortable as if it is your own home.

Room Tip: We have now had room one and three and both are so comfortable.

Beautifully converted old farm buildings in a tranquil rural setting just a few minutes drive from the nearby village of Hawes.

Husband and wife team Paul and Pam are dedicated and passionate hoteliers and restauranteurs who will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive on the drive and every moment of your stay with them.

Paul and Pam make sure they use fresh and seasonal produce, designing menus around this, providing superb food which matched the quality of the dishes they created for our wedding.

A very relaxing and enjoyable stay with fantastic people.

We stayed here with our 7 year old daughter for a weekend in July 2013 and loved it.

Food was amazing - so amazing we ate here both nights. Breakfast was fab - plenty to eat.

The room was gorgeous. Very beautifully furnished and comfortable with great views of the countryside. There is loads to do in this part of the world.

The owners were lovely people who bent over backwards for us.

Def would return again - gorgeous part of the world.

Had a lovely couple of days staying at The Old Dairy Farm. We upgraded to Room 3 so we could experience the jacuzzi bath. As has been previously said, the water was so brown there was no way we would want to sit in a bath of it. Bottled water was provided and as it stated in the guest information about the brown water one does wonder if this is a regular or permanant occurance. We would certainly not have paid the extra for the jacuzzi bath and balcony had we known.
This said the room was lovely and very clean and the breakfasts were delicious. There is no mobile phone signal at the dairy farm and this could prove a problem if you need to be in touch with the outside world!!
