Stayed for a short break in October for a few days of solitude, walking and photography. Despite poor weather had a lovely time and the Peat House ws perfect. The room was comfortable and well appointed and the bathroom ans bath was perfect after a day out. Lovely walks right from the front door. Breakfast in a crate excellent. Thoroughly recommended.
Folds farm was quiet and away from busy roads. Wonderful view. Comfortable and adequate room to sit and sleep. The bed comfortable and quirky with gate head and foot boards (made by Richard well done!) the local towns and villages not too far away.
Beautifully converted 'peat house', well placed to explore Harrogate, and the south Yorkshire Dales. Friendly hosts live in the farm alongside. Spacious bathroom with both bath and shower - both excellent. Breakfast in a box was an inspired idea- plenty for breakfast and for a mid-morning snack too. Thoroughly recommended.
Having read the read the excellent reviews, we booked to stay for three nights. Louise and Richard are lovely hosts and have put much thought into the renovation of the Peat House. I don't want to repeat the previous reviews suffice to say that I agree with all the positive feedback they have given about the room and facilities.The farm is situated between Ilkley and Harrogate and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous. There are plenty of marked pathways and walking around the nearby reservoir is very pleasant. We also visited Harlow Carr RHS gardens which were lovely and paid a visit to Betty's there. Louise and Richard helped us to choose local pubs for our meals and they were all great.
If you want a nice, quiet hideaway you will find it here. You will not be disappointed.
Such a beautiful little hide away on the farm within a stone's throw of the reservoir, which you can walk round talking about 2.5 hours.
Richard and Louise were brilliant host's very friendly, they even allowed us to drop our bags off earlier.
Richard gave us a few recommendations to eat out and they didn't disappoint.
The views you get from the room are beautiful, all the little touches made to make your stay even better are a very good touch.
My only bit of feedback would be the WiFi, although there is some we struggled to connect to it.
I can't wait to return.
This is a smashing place to stay. It's scrupulously clean and really comfortable place too. The hosts Richard and Louise are perfect hosts and can't do enough to make you feel welcome whilst not in any way being intrusive. The farm is about 10 miles from Harrogate and easily accessible. There is a breakfast box supplied and replenished every day. It has fruit, cereals,pastries,bread, health bars, fruit and there is lovely cheese and butter as well as fresh milk and orange juice in the small fridge provided. The bed is a smashing novelty and gives the room a great quirky character. There is a dvd and tv player.The wall sockets also have USB points. The bathroom is en suite and has lovely toiletries and soft fluffy white towels provided. The shower is powerful and it has a handset and overhead facility. For those who like a bath there is one there as well separate from the shower. There are absolutely no issues with Breaks Fold Farm it's a little gem of a place and whoever goes there will not be disappointed.
Wow!! This place is lovely, the rural location and the stunning scenery are just a couple if things you will enjoy here. Richard and Louise (the owners) are fab and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the Guest room which was beautiful and worth every penny, a lot of thought has gone into this and it shows, the room is very comfortable with excellent facilities. The continental breakfast box caters for all. We felt very relaxed and chilled which is what we wanted, there are some lovely walks and villages close by. We would recommend a stay here and will definitely be returning.
