What a magnificent find. From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to enjoy our stay and enjoy it we did. This guest house has superb accommodation. We booked the cream room and it was clean, neat and beautifully set out. The bathroom facilities were excellent - great shower! I had the best three night's sleep that I... More

Stephanie and Richard made me feel very much at home. This was my second visit. They are very thoughtful and caring. Everything is spotlessly clean and breakfast is superb. I'll definitely be paying further visits.

Highly recommended, with immaculate facilities and lovely accommodation in the private and spacious Hayloft. We enjoyed our vegetarian cooked breakfast and a morning walk around the gardens. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. An enjoyable stay in a lovely area.

Beautiful, very comfortable room in this lovely home, finest quality bedding and excellent room supplies. Location is absolutely lovely, with wonderful gardens. Very peaceful. Sitting room is available to relax - lovely not to only have the bedroom. Fantastic breakfast and very welcoming and helpful hosts. Most importantly, for me, was that I had a really good night sleep!

The only problem with Bays farm B&B was finding it. Once we did, we found the best B&B we've stayed at. Welcoming, helpful , great bed, and good breakfast. The problem Australian travellers often encounter - poor (or no) showers - was no problem here - hot and strong.

We are on most SatNav's, we are lucky enough that Google pinpoints us exactly and we do have clear directions on our website for our visitors. However, for any future guests we are located 100 metres to the right off the A1120 leading from... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
New from July is the Bays Farm Shepherd Hut. Possibly the most luxurious Shepherd Hut in the country. Located in the wild flower garden and overlooking the newly landscaped moat, why not sample the luxury of Bays Farm but with the individuality of a special shepherd hut experience. Lavish restoration has turned this charming 17th-century farmhouse into a quality destination. A moat and 4 acres of recently re-designed gardens which open under the National Garden Scheme surround the property. The interior has a wealth of oak beams and the individually designed bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and each have en-suite facilities. The Hayloft is beautifully appointed and offers a sitting area along with its own balcony looking over the orchard. Breakfasts are served in the oak-beamed dining room. ... more   less
