“Comfortable stay; great for families”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

My husband and I traveled to England with our niece and needed reasonably priced 2 bedroom accommodations. Model Farm fit the bill perfectly. We rented a 2 level, 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage. The cottage was clean, especially considering its age, and well stocked with dishes, linens, coffee, tea, even biscuits. Also we had flat screen TVs in each bedroom and in the living room. The teen age niece really liked having her own TV. I had some trouble with the shower which turned out to be user error. The shower had hot water on demand so once I figured out how to use it I never ran out! My only complaint about the cottage that we had was that mattress pads were not used and a box spring on 1 of the beds seemed to have partially collapsed. There isn’t much within walking distance but you can make it by foot to 1 pub and there are several close by take-a-ways that will deliver. The staff members, made up of several young attractive women from Poland, were especially kind and made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. The breakfast was like most English food in that it was unremarkably good or bad but you got plenty of it. We were offered plenty of choices including fruit, eggs, cold or hot cereal, a complete English breakfast, hot fish, instant coffee, tea, milk, etc. I have to agree with some other reviewers the strange cured fish on the table that I don’t know what it was but found it really unappetizing looking and smelling…and I tend to love pickled, salted and smoked fish of all kinds. I pushed it away and enjoyed my scrambled eggs and toast. If you stay there and plan to cook check out the butcher shop, everything looked fantastic.

Room Tip: Call ahead to make sure that you get the space that you need.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised.
When we arrived we were greated by Beate who showed us around the farmhouse and took us out through the conservatory and extensive landscaped gardens, past the ducks and peacocks out to Toftshaw House (the 5 bedroomed house). We hadn't booked the house specifically but it appeared the main farmhouse was full.
We had the large ensuite room in the house which was simply enormous. The room was tastefully appointed and although the decor was bright, the room was so airy as not to be intrusive. We did have some niggles with the room, but overall they weren't enough to make us not want to return.
For accommodation which normally would be rented out by the week, I felt that a wardrobe should have been provided in our room. There was a small chest of drawers and bedside tables but for two people it wouldn't have been sufficient.
The tiles on the bathroom floor could do with regrouting and repositioning as they wobbled a bit when you stepped on them. In addition, the loo seat wasn't big enough for the pan and did slip as you sat on it which is a bit disconcerting!

The breakfast the following morning was lovely, although some of the items on the table could do with being labelled so you could make a better choice. You had the option of facing the windows for breakfast overlooking the lovely view of the farmland and landscaped gardens.

What I would note if you are staying in the 5 bedroomed house is to bring earplugs as due to the wooden floors the sound echoes around and I was woken by an early riser sharing the house.

The website doesn't do the accommodation justice, more pictures of the accommodation on offer, on the pages themselves would be appreciated, especially if you are booking in for a week in some of the cottages.

Overall, we would recommend staying here and would come back here again.

A unique place, the owners have made every effort to make the place interesting, beautiful and comfortable and certainly have not followed convention in their approach. The farm and surrounding scenery is wonderful and the breakfast is worth the money on it's own.

The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful, they helped us with every tip they knew regarding trips and more. Breakfast is great - eat as much as you can.

We were a family with 3 children, and stayed is a house with 4 bedrooms (2 floors), fully equipped with all you need. Clean, roomy and nice.

The location is great. It's right on the edge of bradford but has nothing but countryside around it.

we would certainly go back and stay again.

On arrival we were met with a friendly member of staff who was happy to help. She made us feel welcome and showed us around the farm to our room which was in a house that had 4 rooms and a shared bathroom.

The room was spacious, with a tv which had digital channels and a dvd player, the staff at the staff at the farm, had provided the room with a kettle, cups and tea and coffee and also little chocolates that we thouroughly devoured, they also provided shower gels and face cloths if you had forgotten yours. The bed was comfy and was clean the room was good value for money. The farm had a lovely garden which was open until 10pm which you were able to walk out to which had a stream running through where you could see fish which was a lovely touch.

When we arrived we had to walk through the reception which held the table and people were eating which made me and my husband feel a little uncomfortable.

There was a choice of what to have for breakfast with a choice of 6 cooked breakfasts and a selection of fruit, cereal, pastries, meat, fish and yoghurt. The full English breakfast was lovely and well cooked although you ate in the conservatory on a table with other people, it would have been better if there were individual tables. But was a great value for money
