Ford House Farm
Ranked #2 of 3 Shipley B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 April 2012

The friendly welcome from Val on our arrival set the tone for our 3 night stay with an immediate offer of help with our bags into a warm and cosy farmhouse. The secure car parking added to our sense of well being.
Our room was large beautifully furnished and very comfortable with idyllic views across the countryside and pretty well kept gardens anyone would be proud of. Breakfasts were excellent in choice, quality and quantity served by our genial host Michael. We will stay there again whenever we are in the area and would recommend the friendly hospitality of Ford House to anyone.

We enjoyed a very comfortable 3 night stay at Ford House Farm. Val and Mick were very hospitable and looked after us extremely well. Val was very helpful with suggesting places to visit and going to a lot of trouble to draw maps and give us directions. A brilliant location for exploring the Dales and very close to Bradford and Saltaire.

Excellent accommodation and hosts.
Nice to be off the main road with gated security.
Not often we can travel by motorcycle without worrying about it's overnight security.
Large well furnished rooms and a good breakfast.
Will be staying there again when in area.

We have stayed here three times. The property is off the main road , therefore very quiet, with ample secure parking protected by electric gates over night. The rooms are furnished to a very high standard , and of good size being a farm house. The breakfast is exceptionally good , served in excellent style. Mike and Val are excellent hosts. We have stayed in many establishments in the area , and this is the `best my miles ` for all facilities and value for money

I stayed here twice last year and plan to stay again this year for 3 trips to Yorkshire. It is a warm welcoming B&B with an excellent breakfast. Mike and Val are great hosts. Brilliant!

We stayed for five days in September 2011. It was a lovely place to stay. Mike and Val are great even if Mike supports a rubbish football team! What is really nice is that if we are in that part of the world again then we know we don't have to search for somewhere to stay, we will only have to phone Val.

Ford House Farm was a great treat. Wonderfully warm room (it was -4C outside), comfortable bed, lovely bathroom with fantastic shower. The breakfast was delicious. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Mike and Val were extremely welcoming and very friendly.
