5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having read the reviews for this lovely bed and breakfast we were expecting to be happy with our stay, however it turned out to be even better than expected. We were made to feel really welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. We stayed in the cream room which, although small, was "perfectly formed" and very comfortable. The room amenities... More

For the last 4 years my partner and I have spent dozens upon dozens of weekends exploring the British Isles, from the top of Scotland to the white cliffs of Dover. Bays farm has immediately set itself into the top 3 places we've ever stayed! (The other 2 are a 5* spa in York and a castle in Scotland) My... More

Stayed over for 1 night on Monday night this week. All I can say is wow. I have spent the last year in various B&b's and hotels and this is the best one yet. From the welcome to the breakfast the next morning I simply loved every second. I can't remember the name of the couple, but I was greeted... More

If you can, stay in the hayloft - its generous space both in living and bathroom is really worth the extra cost. Stephanie and her husband are lovely hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend making time to explore the beautiful garden and spend some time infront of the fireplace just relaxing with a book or board... More

We have just returned from Bays Farm and can faithfully report that this is the best B&B we have ever used and we are frequent users of hotels and B&B (every 4-6 weeks). We needed to unwind and relax and the hosts here enabled this with ease. Stephanie was most welcoming and provided us with a homecooked evening meal in... More

We were welcomed immediately on arrival by Stephanie & Richard, and enjoyed coffee in the lounge. Our stay was in the cream room which was simply exquisite, their attention to detail warrants their five star rating. Our first evening was spent at Bays farm and we sampled their one of their dinners, it was good homely fayre, tasty and filling.... 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.
