An excellent B & B. We enjoyed our short stay at Ford House Farm very much. The owners Val & Michael offered a warm welcome and were there to make our stay better when required, providing good recommendations for local restaurants and tasty, ample breakfasts. Our room was spacious and well furnished with views over fields. We had a quiet... More

Keep your eyes peeled for the turning into Buck Lane off the busy Otley Road , and 100 yds along the Lane you enter a hidden valley of peace and tranquility. The silence is only broken by birdsong and the occasional complaint from horses as you enter through secure gates and find yourself beside the substantial traditional farmhouse set in... More

We have stayed here before and just love it. The location, the large bedrooms, the food and the sincere Yorkshire friendliness of Val and Michael. Dressing gowns are in each room, fresh milk is always available - an overall genuinely relaxing time. Close to the River Aire and Salts Mill/Saltaire.

Lovely experience staying here at the weekend, really friendly owners and a delicious breakfast. Was amazed at how lovely the rooms were for such a reasonable price, and the views were wonderful too. All in all a great stay and made a special weekend even better!

Looking for accommodation near the Yorkshire Dales, I came across Ford House Farm near Shipley. I read all the reviews, e mailed my sister to look too and then booked a four day break so that my sisters and I (and husbands) could take dad to re-visit lovingly remembered places. Could our accommodation really be that good? We arrived on... More

We had an exceptional stay at Ford House Farm last week. Our hosts Michael & Anne could not have been more hospitable or helpful. Our room was a stunning, large and beautifully decorated room with every comfort. The bathroom and shower were great. Bath robes were also provided. The location was fabulous with views over the lovely garden & paddocks... More

After being battered by traffic all day, what a relief to turn down the almost invisible lane and relax in a garden surrounded by herbaceous borders looking down onto a field of grazing horses and stately trees. Our first floor corner room was fresh and comfortable. The shower is excellent - Val said it is a "rain head". I want... More

We have just enjoyed 2 wonderful days based at Ford House Farm. The b&b is just 3 minutes' walk from the Leeds-Liverpool canal in a peaceful green setting. Val is a superb hostess - nothing too much trouble - and her breakfasts are first class. Our ground floor bedroom was very spacious - always good to have a comfy sofa... More
