It was a shame we could only stay one night. We loved everything about lily hill farm. Location, beautiful countryside, friendly welcome, blissful night's sleep and splendid breakfast. Plenty of choice for dinner nearby. Planning a longer visit next time!

Fantastic location, fantastic hosts,fantastic breakfast.we only stayed one night but could not have picked anywhere better. Would definitely return. The scones on arrival were a lovely touch after a long journey. We even had a packed lunch when we left for a minimal charge.Can definitely recommend a stay at this working farm.

Only a hop and a skip from the A66, but Lilyhill is beautifully quiet and peaceful. A warm welcome and a lovely comfy room in a gorgeous old farmhouse with plenty of space for luggage and relaxation and a nice view over the walled garden where the birds serenaded us. The scones and jam on arrival were lovely - I... More

What a place to stay!!! Karen & Frank were so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Fresh home-made scones on arrival, spacious very comfortable bedroom, peace and quiet - wonderful. Breakfast was excellent, cereal, fresh fruit, full English if required, fresh toast and lashings of tea or coffee. Our 4 day stay was simply not long enough, despite the weather,... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights to attend a wedding nearby. I can't add much more than previous reviews, other that to say that we had a nice stay and enjoyed the peace and quiet that the location provided. Special mention must go to the breakfast, it was really good!

Very comfortable stay with welcoming hosts. Nice touch to have fresh home made scones on arrival. Comfortable, well appointed room and an excellent breakfast with fresh fruit salad, full English breakfast and ample coffee, toast etc. Highly recommended. We'll be back!

My husband and I spent two very relaxing nights at Lily Hill Farm: the room was perfect (spotlessly clean and quiet, well-proportioned with a gorgeous view and an excellent matress), and the breakfast was delicious (great range to choose from too). The location is both convinient (just off the A66) and idyllic-the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The welcome was warm... More

A friendly welcome, a spacious, comfortable room, excellent breakfast, and a peaceful rural location. Our window overlooked the farmhouse garden, and sheep grazing land with the moors rising in the distance. Perfect.

We stayed at Lily Hill Farm for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding nearby. We received a very warm, friendly welcome from Karen, the owner. Fresh homemade scones in the rooms on arrival and fresh milk for tea/coffee were a lovely touch. Rooms were great and breakfast fantastic. Can't recommend Lily Hill Farm highly enough. We'll be back... More

We had a one night stay in this delightful and charming B&B on a working farm after breaking up our journey from London to the Lakes. We received a very warm & genuine welcome from the owner. The rooms (view, warmth, cleanliness, size) were exemplary. The homemade scones and biccies were a real treat! Breakfast was tasty and substantial and... More
