We stayed here whilst visiting my wife's sister who lives a mile away but although she knew of the farm didn't realise they offered B&B - that's how well hidden away this little gem of a place is!
My wife decided to book us in based on these reviews, and we're so glad she did.
The evening before we travelled there John called to give us directions and wish us a good journey, he suggested we call or text him when we were within a half-hour of arriving so he could be there to greet us - what a nice personal touch, and very welcome in this day and age of rushing around! As we arrived the front door opened and John was there to help with bags or whaetever we needed, a lovely welcome after a long and tiring drive. After telling John what we wanted for our cooked breakfast we were given keys and off we went.
The accomodation was spotlessly clean and tidy, and very comfortable too, with everything we needed for our short stay.
In the morning the breakfast that John delivered was simply the best I have had in a long time - cooked to order, and all locally sourced too, some literally coming from his neighbouring farms.
Both John and his wife Marjorie were a mine of useful information on the area, happy to help in any way they could.
On the morning that we left they filled our flasks with their lovely columbian coffee - nothing was too much trouble it seemed.
All in all a lovely experience which we are happy to recommend to anyone who needs a peaceful haven in this part of the world. A lovely place run by a lovely couple!

- We are a family run establishment. As you approach down a typical country lane and arrive at the farm, surrounded by trees and fields, it is hard to imagine that you are close to the motorway network and the towns of Rochdale, Middleton and Oldham. ... more less
