Reviewed 21 June 2013

Can't fault anything from the welcome, bed, room, cleanliness, views and superb breakfast. Would happily go back, and children welcome so maybe a short break and enjoy the walks and views even more. Cant think why I used to stay in chain hotels!

True Yorkshire hospitality in a homely farmhouse with beautiful views and pretty gardens. We received a warm welcome, & were shown to a spacious, comfortable room with relaxing decor and sofa and views over gardens, paddocks with horses, and hills/trees. Roomy modern shower room too. Everywhere spotlessly clean. Nothing is too much trouble, excellent hosts. Any small request dealt with so quickly, with a smile and tlc. We felt absolutely "at home". Breakfasts superb, lots of choice. Didnt eat a thing all day after the Full English our first morning! Yum. Access to room any time of day with own key was really helpful for a rest, shower and brush-up before birthday celebratory meals out with local friends. We will stay again when visiting our Yorkshire friends, and have told them about this local treasure for other visitors who might need a stopover. 5 stars well deserved. Oh - and the quiet is wonderful. How often today can one hear Silence! Well, awake for a while one night I lay and listened to precisely that. Wonderful, tranquil, peaceful stay. Excellent location for many towns, villages and locations in this area of Yorkshire.

Room Tip: I think all rooms here would be quiet and up to the standard of the room we were allocated.

thank you for such a great holiday we were greeted by Val and mick and it just got better thanks to their lovely rooms which were lovely quite like 6star you could not fault them in any way the breakfasts were again excellent with myself on slimming world diet I was able with Val and micks help to keep to my diet at short notice they really sorted me out with it . You can reach all the lovely tourist spots from this lovely home and there were plenty to keep you busy either touring by car, biking safely by the canal or walking even visiting the larger cities or just stopping of on your business trips .Still near enough to the main routes to stop of for a 2/3 day break thank you again we will be back again and again love mick and Mary.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet and the downstairs room is lovely for the older folk

Needed a place to stay for a day and a night - checked out the reviews of Ford House Farm , and thought that i needed to check this place out due to the sheer number of 4 and 5 star reviews.
Must say that i absolutely love this place - lovely location - pleasant and peaceful - there is a local walk nearby that is really nice it accesses the canal system , access to the local train station is a cinch.
And yet just 5 -10 minutes drive away you could go into Shipley town centre if you wanted to.
The rooms are clean and spacious - and i like spacious rooms - lol .
Absolutely everything that was needed was provided - i asked Mick and Val for aaa batteries to use in my wireless mouse - not a problem - they provided some -
Breakfast was really nice.
ALL in ALL - a wonderful experience and this B and B is a place that i heartily recommend to anyone who is looking for a great experience and happens to be in the Bradford area !

We stayed at Ford House Farm for a night as we had builders at home and craved somewhere clean and chaos free, it is 5 mins away from where we lived but felt like a million miles, lovely location, had no idea that this lovely place existed!

The rooms are clean and spacious and the bathrooms are gorgeous and Val the owner is extremely helpful and a wonderful host.

We will be recommending to all out family when they come to visit!'

Set in a pleasant peaceful location, Ford House Farm makes an ideal base. I stayed for a couple of nights and used the nearby railway station to travel into Bradford for business.
Val is very welcoming and is a mine of information. My room was clean, spacious and well equipped. There is a good choice for breakfast - I went for the full English which was spot on.

Room Tip: I had room 2 (twin room en-suite)
