Currer Laithe Farm
Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

We came for a weekend on friday 13th until Sunday 15th June for a gathering with friends. Its safe to say we had a fantastic relaxing weekend. When we got there we were taken back by the views. The place is very old fashioned but it certainly has character and in my opinion, is unspoilt. We had a big barbecue on the saturday night and lots to drink sat out at the front until very late, it was lovely! The children can just roam and play freely it was great for them. They loved feeding the donkeys and petting the goats and cows. We will definitely return here in the future :-)

I have been to some lovely different places and had many enjoyable abodes to stay but nothing like this. The two elderly ladies who run this farm are purely out of the Brontes sisters books . The farm so stuck in time it reaps of the historic Yorkshire moors in which it lays. Just go there and you will have memories you will cherish for life. Dave Humberstone.

This is a wonderful place for groups to stay. Run by two wonderful eldery ladies whose energy put us all to shame. 35 of us passed through the doors over the week, some to stay, some to drop in for coffee. Some had dogs and some had children and as the place has old slate and wood floors and comfortable but non designer furniture you are not on tenderhooks in case of a small accident. The views are stunning from all windows and the donkeys, cats, dogs and ducks all very entertaining (not to mention the visits of the cows to the kitchen windows! ) There is enough room to spread out but also a lounge and dining area big enough for all. Lots to do in the local area and a fab local pub within walking distance (if you can get up the hill! ) The pub The Dickie Bird was still welcoming after we won their quiz! and has a beer garden and childrens play area as well as doing food and cheap drinks

Just back from cousins retirement and birthday bash at this brilliant barn conversion. Jean and Margaret, the owners are a remarkable couple who still farm there.The accomodation was very old worldly but clean and comfortable and can suitably sleep 15 people and more if you include the two cottages attached to the barn, these sleep 5 in one and 7 in the other and can be booked seperately. A short walk to the village and there is a post office and local shop and a great pub The Dickie Bird. We had a good time in the pub with a great bingo night and quiz night. The food there was very good and the landlord very friendly. Will def be going again to this farm, just finding a good excuse to get a good party together. The price was amazing much cheaper than anything I have seen like it.

Had a very enjoyable stay at Currer Laithe with a group of freinds and their children. Excellent large dining room meant we could all sit down and have a meal together. Nearby St Ives esate was great for the kids to feed ducks and have fun at the adventure playground. The owners were very friendly and will tell you marvellous stories if you spend time chatting to them. We all had a wonderful time. This place is also absolutely brilliant value for money when you compare it to other large group accomodation.

Let's get it over with. Currer Laithe is not 5* acommodation.
What it is,however, is a wonderful honest place high on a hill above Keighley to spend some simple time with friends. The situation is stunning with wondeful views in all directions. The walking direct from the door towards Bingley and the St. Ives estate is excellent and provides just the right amount of challenge for the leisure walker.
It is run by two of the most amazing, genuine ladies I have ever met, all the better for being from the "old school".
This place is ideal for parties of young people, scouts, guides, schools etc who want to give the students a feel for just being free and away from town.
For more adult groups a stiff walk down into town and back could be a pleasure. A bus service, a 10 minute walk to the stop across the fields, runs during the day and once an hour in the evening and is very cheap. A taxi back would be about £4.
If you like Hostels, bunking and the great out doors then this IS luxury.

I'll begin by explaining the title 'A great alternative to Amsterdam'. A group of 15 friends were supposed to be travelling by ferry to Amsterdam to celebrate a 30th and 40th birthday. We were let down by DFDS ... they over booked to trip and let us down 2 weeks before we were due to travel.

I got on to looking into alternatives for the first weekend in October 2010. After failing to find anywhere to fit us all in I eventually found Currer Laithe Farm. I spoke to a lovely lady on the phone who said they were available on that weekend to to make things even better it was only going to cost £200 for all of us... thats just over £15 each!

I went on to explain that we were a noisy bunch but the lady said that was not a problem and we wouldn't disturb them.

Anyway, we got there and were a bit dubious about the place to begin with. The farmhouse accommodation we had booked was directly attached to the main farmhouse (with doors that came into our house from theirs) and onto another, smaller, cottage that was also booked out. Now we were there with the sole intention of having a noisy drunken weekend so worried a bit.

Later on we met the owners ( a lovely couple of ladies that have lived on the farm for many years) and I decided to repeat the fact they we would be loud. One of the ladies told me that it was fine to make as much noise as we liked... she even went on to say that they would worry we wern't having fun if they couldn't hear anything.

The first night was great, lots of drinking, dancing and music. I was slightly worried that we may have been too loud and might be told off the next morning however, morning came and the owners said that they didn't hear us at all.

Night two came and we had set up a large sound system complete with DJ station and full PA. We had a HUGE night of music that was blasting out... until the one of the owners came in and politely asked us to turn it down :( I must say that our music was VERY loud and she didn't come in untill gone midnight so we still had a fab time. Got up next morning and saw the owners who were really apologetic for coming in but the 'bang, bang, bang' worried them and asked if it 'affacted' our brains!

All in all we had an amazing weekend and the interuption to our second night didn't spoil it at all. Also £200 between 15 people is a bargain. Granted the house is in no way plush but it's ideal for a bunch of people to go to and have a party. The place is clean and comfortable and all you need for a trip away. Why spend £1000's on a place when you can get it cheap as chips?

Our tips:
- ASDA do deliveries to the farm so you can buy your food in bulk and have it delivered
- Avoid the cobbled road!
- By all means take a music system but a big PA might be a bit much after midnight.
- There is a pun about 3 miles away called 'The 3 Acres' - great for food.
- We moved the communal room from the lounge to the dining room. The owners are fine with you moving furniture around so long as you move it back so take a photo so you know how it all fits back together.
- Have lots of fun!
- Oh, and stay away from the farm just behind Currer Laithe... we were out walking on the Saturday and got a bit lost. We went up a lane to see if we could see our place but were met by a big scary dog on a chain. The owner basically told us to 'get off their land' and added that 'the dog does bite'.
