“An EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have just returned from our 3rd family holiday at South Newlands ,and we praise the whole experience highly enough.
Peg and Rod are excellent hosts, the cottages are extremely well looked after,and highly kitted out.
The dogs ,Jazz and Ella were the ideal entertainment for our Granddaughters.
Nice to meet previous guests who visit regularly [always a good sign]
The homemade cake on arrival is a nice touch.
We hope to return next year.

Peggy and Rod were delightful hosts, they provided very helpful advice to us on surrounding attractions etc. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and very filling. Beautiful surroundings in a rural setting close to York and many other attractions.

We had our first stay during our tour of the UK at this wonderful B&B and could not have had a better start! Peggy and Rod welcomed us with some tea and cakes in the beautiful garden. Breakfast was excellent and information on how to find the ideal car park in York was given immediately. Peggy even drew a picture of it so we could find it easily.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would be happy to return one day...

If you are wanting a taste of "Yorkshire Hospitality" thrown in with a hearty breakfast, two delightful hosts and their beautiful dogs, then this is the place for you.

Our 2nd visit to this wonderful B&B, and one we looked forward to with much anticipation having only stayed one night, last year. We were greeted like old friends and even put in the same room we stayed in last time. How's that for friendly service, remembering who we were out of the hundreds of people they must meet!

We arrived around 6, greeted by both dogs and then Peggy who promptly showed us into our room and then had us out to the Conservatory and Garden Patio for a lovely cup of tea and shortbread biscuits! What a way to relax, we definitely felt right at ease and delighted to have kicked off our travels down south with our stay at South Newlands : ) Ourselves, plus Rod and another guest enjoying the sunshine and chatting about our plans, we could tell me were going to enjoy this stay as much if not more than the last one!

As ever Peggy and Rod go out of their way to make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble, even helping suggest places for us to try for our evening meal in nearby Riccall.

A wonderful nights sleep, on what my partner feels is one of the best, most comfortable of beds, it's also nice to be somewhere so quiet *living where we are, we're always hearing traffic!* so it was lovely to not hear a thing and have my alarm get us up as opposed to the delivery van for the papers for the shop below us in the morning! Partner running and living above a Post Office can have its advantages and disadvantages! XD

Breakfast was a wonderful occasion as everyone of the guests sits around a big dining table, a social and rather merry affair of tea, coffee, toast, full English's, cereal, fruit and for myself a special Sausage Sarnie made by Peggy!

We felt sad when it came time to leave, assuring that we would most certainly be back we also brought a copy of their own "Recipe Book" (A collaboration of all the farm stays in and around Yorkshire got together to create a special recipe book *one from each B&B* Peggy's Coronation Chicken on Page 53! That helps support the Air Ambulance!)

Such wonderful people! We would highly recommend everyone stay here, they even do self catering cottages - even designed for disabled people. We can't praise Peggy and Rod enough for their hospitality and helping make our trip so memorable.

They say if you find a great B&B, stick with it and South Newlands is definitely One of These!

Just like coming home...Our second stay and it won`t be our last. We returned to our native Yorkshire to visit the railway museum for the Great Gathering...... Six A 4 engines assembled round the turntable. It is so relaxing after the bustle of York to return to a quiet room ,have a lovely sleep and then a fantastic English breakfast. Newlands Farm is so handy for visiting this special part of Yorkshire .Peggy and Rod are the perfect hosts along with the tail wagging welcome from Ella and Jazz..l

This B&B also does self catering. It's just off a good cycle route, a convenient stopping point.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, aiming to please. the setting is lovely and the room was perfect-comfortable with hot shower and very big bed. I'd stop there again.

My friend and I stayed in South Newlands farm in November (2012) on a quick weekend trip to York and were very satisfied with our choice. Booking at the last minute, a lot of places in the centre of York were booked out, but we found South Newlands had a room availible and after reading the Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to opt for this.

South Newlands farm is located in Selby which is about a 20 minute drive from York, located on lovely farmland. When we pulled up around 9pm, we were greeted by the owner's two gorgeous dogs bounding up to us and a beautiful clear sky full of stars (which was a treat coming from inner-city London!). The room was basic but very comfortable and clean and came with coffee and tea making facilities. Even though we'd turned up after 9pm, Peggy happily offered us cake and tea and sat with us around their fireplace for a chat which was nice after a long day of travelling and site seeing. In the morning we were greeted with the biggest English breakfast I've had in a long time, which really added to the nice homely feel of the stay.

I'd recommend South Newlands Farm for people looking for a relaxing, quiet weekend in York/Selby away from the hustle and bustle of the city and would definitely stay there again.
