Just returned from a perfect weekend break. High standard accommodation, everything was good quality,very clean, peaceful but good location to explore the Yorkshire dales. We chose to eat in both nights and the food was top class. Being about three miles from nearest town Hawes, it suited us to be out all day and eat in on the evening. Recommend... More

What a little gem of a place! Everything is wonderful from the warm welcome at the door to the stunning food and cosy bedrooms. We were fortunate to have three nights in this lovely dairy farm conversion and definitely want to return. We went for room three with the jacuzzi bath, an extra treat but worth it! Thank you both...

Have stayed here a number of times in the past and stayed here over New Year even though there were only 4 other guests there for dinner we had a good night. Can't understand why more people weren't there. Had canapés and prosecco whilst sitting in the bar area, our glass of prosecco never went empty, filled up numerous times... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years. Simply perfect for a peaceful break. Small and tasteful with quality food too. You're catered for very well and it's that attention to service that always gets me to book again. A couples ideal break from the hustle and bustle of everyday city life.

Located a few minutes drive from Emsworth, in a quite pastoral setting, the ODF is a modern and beautifully furnished building, where a dairy farm once existed. The owners are charming and very welcoming. Whilst our room was not large, it was spotless and contained all the necessary fixtures and fittings. It looked over fields with a few grazing horses....

This was our second stay here, and it was as good as ever. Paul was very welcoming and the food was absolutely brilliant (thanks Pam). The location is beautiful and an added bonus was that the weather was good. Rooms are well appointed and are very warm cosy and inviting. Don't miss the Wensleydale Cheese factory in Hawes!!

Great place to stay in the lovely valley of Widdale. We arrived tired and wet, after a long walk and were very warmly welcomed with tea and cakes. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Our room had a lovely view too. There is also a residents' lounge. Evening meal and breakfast both very good as well. Obviously well sourced... More

Friendly and welcoming hosts Paul and Pam have managed to combine the best attributes of a cosy, intimate family run B&B, with a stylish and well equipped Boutique Hotel and a top quality restaurant. We have just spent a very relaxing two night break at The Old Dairy Farm and were very impressed by the whole experience. Paul runs the... More
