Superior accommodation in a beautiful and tranquil area. Paul and his wife, Pam, are really a great double act. Paul is there to greet you when you arrive with fresh coffe or tea and a delicious piece of cake. He finds the time to sit and chat and makes you feel very welcome. He is on first name terms throughout... More

We have just returned from a perfect weekend at the Old Diary Farm near Hawes. What a wonderful place to relax. Paul is the perfect host and sees to all your needs while his wife Pam cooks the most amazing food. The food and drink choice is excellent. I imagine something for everyone. It seems they have the perfect location... More

Very high quality accommodation with outstanding food and ambience. Stunning, remote location, yet only 3.5 miles out of Hawes in area of red squirrels. It is amazing that such a varied dinner menu can be created and served to such a high standard by just two or three people working there - the owners and sometimes one helper. Pamela is... More

We visited for a meal while staying in nearby Hawes for my wife's birthday, Paul the owner was really chatty & friendly & the food certainly matched his great service. Post script: We managed to get epically lost on a walk the next day when a 12.5 mile walk turned into closer to 18+ miles. Stumbling upon The Old Dairy... More

A small B&B come restaurant and bar set in the buitifull Yorkshire Dales What it lacks in size it makes up in quality and the attentiveness of the host Paul and Pam From arriving to leaving nothing is to much trouble Pam serves top notch food and Paul is a very good host Rooms very good cannot wait to return

Our room was very comfortable and clean, the food was excellent and always plentiful. If you are looking for a tranquil base from which to explore... More

There are only 3 rooms and we booked room 3 which is the best but there is a supplement charge. The whole place was very nice and relaxed. the food was was also excellent,... More

Booked a stay here for two nights, from start to end we could not have wished it better. upon arrival, Paul greeted us and made us feel very welcome, with coffee and cake to settle us in! The whole place is stunning and very homely, and Paul's hospitality is second to none. We ordered our evening meal from the menu... More
