“Lovely farmhouse bed and breakfast”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Tucked away in beautiful countryside just outside Barnard Castle, this is an example of farmhouse B and B at its best (complete one has to say with the occasional agricultural smell). The room was comfortable and sparklingly clean, and we were warmly welcomed. Substantial breakfast, needless to say. Modern bathroom, although the shower was a bit amateurish.

Lily Hill Farm is a beautiful Farmhouse B&B surrounded by fabulous countryside & wildlife & within easy distance of so many beautiful & interesting places. The warm welcome we received was second to none, the room was stunning and the breakfast was delicious. The only thing I would have wanted to change was the length of our stay it simply wasn't long enough ! We will definately be going back to Lily Hill Farm hopefully in the not to distant future as it is a walkers & wildlife lovers paradise.

Thanks for a fabulous stay and we hope to visit you again soonx

I really enjoyed my 2 night stay at Lily Hill Farm. I found it very restful and the breakfast was of very good quality, as were the lovely, oaty biscuits that were provided in my room. I will definitely try to book in again, when I am next in the area.

We stayed here about 5 years ago and when we needed accommodation in the area this year we rang and luckily was booked in for a night's stay. The room is really clean and well maintained, the welcome is great and the breakfast, well thats fantastic. We will be back when we need a room in the area again. It is a bit off the main road but with only birds, cows and sheep as company its a very quiet location.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

This is a very good B&B a short distance from Bowes and Barnard Castle. The beds are very comfortable and a large bedroom and en suite make this a very relaxing stay. The host's attention to detail makes this a very pleasant overnight stay.

Room Tip: The larger of the two rooms is preferable.

By far the best B&B of our recent holiday. Karen came out to meet us from our car upon arrival and showed us to our room. The room was nice and big and spacious enough to accomodate the double bed for me and my husband and two single put up beds for my children. The view was fabulous overlooking the garden and countryside. There were home-made scones, bisuits and fresh milk and after a long journey the refreshments were very much appreciated. The attention to detail was exceptional and the breakfast was divine - lovely toiletries in the bathroom too! Would most certainly recommend this Farmhouse B&B.

Lily Hill Farm has sheltered six generations of the current tenants. The historic farm house is authentic and homey, the beds comfortable, the room has serene views of field and pasture. The owners were welcoming and helpful. Fresh milk and home baked scones were brought up for the room tea tray, and breakfast was varied and generous. The opposite of slick and generic hotel accommodations, Lily Hill Farm offers a glimpse into the life in the English countryside.
