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

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

For a peaceful, relaxing get away from it all weekend I would definitely recommend The old dairy farm. Paul and Pam are the very friendly attentive owners. Paul deals with front of house welcoming you on arrival with coffee and a choice of homemade cake. Pam does the cooking which is excellent. We stayed for 1 night, our room and... More

Just returned from a two night break on a special offer. We received a friendly reception and a slice of cake on arrival. We were in Room 2 which was small but clean and tidy. There was no bath but a shower with 4 jets. As others have mentioned the water was discoloured but having worked in the water industry... More

We have just returned from a two night break at the Old dairy farm. From the outside this place doesn't look anything special but inside is like a different world. It is modern and and you are greeted with a warm welcome from Paul. The bed and breakfast is about six miles from Hawes and is surrounded by hills. It... More
