“Wonderful farm stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Wood Farm is an excellent place for travellers to stay when visiting York. Conveniently located just a few miles out of York and close to a Park and Ride, access to the city is trouble free, with the bus dropping you off just a couple of minutes walk from York Minster.
Helen is a lovely hostess - friendly, welcoming, providing excellent breakfasts, and willing to offer advice on nearby restaurants and how to get around on the Dales/Moors etc.
It is a working farm and the cattle sheds are not far outside the window but that is part of the charm of staying at a farm stay. We loved every minute of our stay there and would recommend Wood Farm very highly.

We have spent August Bank Holiday weekend at Wood Farm and can only reiterate everything mentioned in previous reviews. We stayed in the Rose Room which is spacious, immaculate and with an enormous, comfy bed. Helen and Claire are very welcoming, helpful and friendly hosts as well as being great cooks! The delicious home-made rolls and plum jam were a highlight at breakfast. The park and ride is a five minute drive away and with very regular buses we were in the centre of York in around 20 minutes door to door. The farm is also well placed for a visit to Castle Howard. Wood Farm has a lovely relaxed feel - great to come back to after a busy day - and is up there with the best B&Bs we have stayed at.

We returned to the farm for a second time as we loved it so much before. We stayed in the garden room this time which was spacious, with a massive bed! Helen an Claire always make us feel welcome and show genuine interest in what you have been doing. It's lovely and quiet and the perfect setting for a relaxing break. Helen's breakfast is to die for

We found this purely by chance what a great experience
Claire is a great host extremely friendly, great cook.
The breakfast was amazing.
So nice to be able to walk around a working farm
The rooms are large and extremely comfortable with period furniture.
A decent bathroom and good sized shower, unusual for England.
The information pack in the rooms was very helpful.
Unfortunately we could only stay one night, the four of us can not thank Claire enough for one of the highlights in accommodation on our trip to England

An absolutely wonderful B and B. Helen is a lovely host and went out of her way to ensure that, as a Coeliac, my needs were catered for. The breakfasts were wonderful and very filling - her scrambled eggs were awesome - best we've ever had! We were in York for The Great Gathering of A4 steam engines at the railway museum, Wood Farm is 5 mins from the park and ride so was perfectly situated. On finding that we'd been to the museum for this special event, Helen left the local paper out for us to read - how thoughtful. Wood Farm is peaceful with lovely views - highly recomend.

Room Tip: They are all lovely - Poppy is very nice as it has double aspect.

After being double booked by another local B & B, we booked into Wood farm at the last minute. We we're made to feel very welcome on our arrival and during our short stay. The room was spacious, bright, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic with a varied choice. I would not hesitate to stay again and will be recommending Wood farm to family and friends.

Wood Farm is a small working farm in the complete peace and quiet of the countryside that belies its position just off the York Ring-Road giving speedy access to the City Centre and easy access to various major routes away from the City

We would support all the previous positive reviews about staying at the farm and would not hesitate to return if again in the York area

Friendly, helpful, clean and comfortable - wonderful views

Room Tip: The 'Garden Room' faces wonderful rural views - the bathroom is a just a little tight on spa...
