5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

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 stumbled upon Wood Farm when we were looking for a quiet B&B close to York. Situated on a 300 acre working farm, the farmhouse is a lovely old building and our upstairs ensuite room was charming - white curtains, lace trim and a soft four poster bed. Everything was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Helen and her daughter Claire made us feel very welcome and gave us excellent travel advice. The food was great and we were given access to the whole farm with its pretty river trail and forest carpeted with bluebells. Terrific access to York itself - It took us just 35 minutes from the farm gate to the front steps of York Minster via one of the convenient York Park and Rides. We originally booked for one night at Wood Farm but ended up staying longer because it was so thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to visit York without the hassle of staying in the city.

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...

We stayed here for 3 nights and highly recommend this relaxing and friendly accomodation. The room was spacious, immaculately clean and had everything the traveller needed. The location was perfect, close enough for sightseeing in and around York but with a feeling of seclusion. Both hostesses were quite helpful in directions and suggestions.
