“A very warm welcome and relaxing stay on a Yorkshire Dales farm.”
Reviewed April 26, 2009

We have stayed at Scaife Hall Farm twice, in 2007 and 2009, and can thoroughly recommend it. It's a working sheep farm in the Yorkshire Dales, in beautiful countryside near the (ugly named?) hamlet of Blubberhouses. It is a very quiet rural location, but only about five minutes drive from the main A59 Harrogate to Skipton road. We've been in Spring, when you drive carefully up to the old, stone farm-house along the unfenced farm drive, through a field full of lambs racing about madly, their quieter mothers, and rabbits.
Christine Ryder is a very friendly and welcoming hostess, with a busy life, but always seeming to have time to chat to her guests. You will get tea and biscuits in the downstairs lounge on arrival. We had Room 1, a double room overlooking the farmyard. It's small, but well equipped. Very comfortable. Spotless and well-maintained. Warm, good lighting, tea/coffee tray, plus biscuits and chocolates, TV, etc. There are two other rooms, a double and a twin, which have nicer views to the South, overlooking the Dales countryside and the lamb fields. All are en-suite.
Breakfasts are excellent. Help-yourself to freshly-made fruit salad, or prunes, or grapefruit, or a range of high-quality cereals. The your choice of cooked breakfast.. nearly everything made with top-quality local farm produce.. the eggs will have just been collected, even kippers come from the smoke-house just up the road. Toast, and a huge range of Yorkshire jams and marmalades.
There are maps and guides available to borrow. There are various nature trails and even a “tree-trail” that give circular walks from the farm. And Christine has lots of advice on eating-places for evening meals, and will book tables for you. It's a very comfortable and relaxing stay.
We take a cool-box with us, so we can stock up with excellent lamb from Christine's brother's farm-shop just up the road.
