We stayed for 3 nights in the Hayloft suite. Stephanie and Richard were great hosts making you feel totally at ease The room and facilities were excellent and definitely justified the 5* rating for this B&B. Breakfast was excellent and the tasty evening meals on offer were also a very welcome option which we took advantage of a couple of... More

A massive 5* rating for this fantastic B&B. Only £75 for the night in the "Cream Room" represents great value for money. The proprietors also offer evening meals, which we didn't sample, but we can totally recommend the amazing breakfasts. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here for one night when we were going to a party in old Newton. We had such a lovely welcome. The room was lovely and breakfast was delicious, especially stewed fruit in earl grey tea. Would definitely recommend it. Setting was gorgeous surrounded by lovely countryside.

From the moment the door was opened on our arrival, to the e-mail Stephanie sent three days after we left with information about the wonderful champagne glasses she has, the service was superb. We booked Bays Farm as a short stay getaway to relax, we certainly did that and will definitely return soon.

Thank you so much for your review, we are always aiming for total perfection from the moment our guests arrive to the moment we have to say goodbye. Yes, our Cream room is our smallest room and as you say ideal for a short stay or we will add geared towards the single traveller. However, it enjoys all the comforts... More

It was a pleasure to have you both stay with us and thank you for choosing Bays Farm. We love our Nespresso machines - we have them in all our guest rooms (and even one in our own kitchen for those quick coffees - could do with George Clooney dropping by!!) We offer a simple supper menu which means guests... More

This B&B is is a beautiful setting very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Rooms were well equipped even had a coffer machine.

My daughter and I spent one night at Bays Farm. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Tea and coffee and biscuits were provided, and there was a fantastic ensuite bathroom. We ate dinner - fresh, light lasagne, salad and a glass of chilled wine - in the beautiful wood-beamed dining room. Stephanie gave us such a warm welcome. This... More

- The room: We stayed at the Pink room (it's not really pink, which is good...). The room and the en suite (shower only) are very spacious and comfortable, with great amenities, including a Nespresso coffee maker which is rare in B&B and was much appreciated.
