Great breakfast and all the family/staff were really friendly. Couldn't fault it -... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. It is a real working sheep farm. Our hosts were very pleasant and served us a wonderful breakfast. Our accommodation was a two bedroom suite which was very comfortable and relaxing. One hint is to call ahead to get directions to Bessiestown Farm Country Guesthouse.

We stayed at this Guest House overnight on our way to our annual break in Yorkshire. What an excellent choice. This is lovely accommodation with beautifully furnished rooms and very friendly owners. It is in a very quiet area of countryside and suited us perfectly. Unfortunately we were there on a Sunday which was the only day when evening meals... More

This is a peaceful, rural location offering a very warm welcome. The accommodation is excellent with comfortable beds. Dinner and breakfast were also excellent. There is plentiful safe parking. We would be very pleased to return.
