Ford House Farm
Ranked #2 of 3 Shipley B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 17, 2011

From the moment we arrived things could not have been better. Friendly reception and got the impression nothing would have been too much trouble. Val went beyond the call of duty to help us get to our party . We had a good sized double room and a very clean and modern en suite. Lovely quiet setting with a good pub within easy walking distance. Good-sized full Englush breakfast with a choice of fruit and cereal as well. Would definitely recommend and would return.

Amazing bed and breakfast, in beautiful surroundings, 10 minutes from the town of Guiseley and a stone’s throw away from the famous Emerdale village of Esholt, which is where I have a friend I was visiting. The rooms are large and clean, with nice homely antique furniture. The bathrooms are quite modern and very clean. Staying at this BnB feels like your staying as a guest at a friend’s house, though most friends won’t serve you up a great British fry up in the morning, accompanied by your choice of toast and cereals which they do a great job of at Ford House Farm. Will definitely be staying again when I go back up to Yorkshire.

The website for Ford House Farm really does not do it justice. This B&B is set in a beautiful location, with amazing rooms and brilliant service! Michael and Val were really accomodating by letting me check in early and then run off to the weeding I was at. The breakfast was great and the shower in my room felt like I was in a 5* hotel! I will definitely be back and will recommend it to everyone I know! Hidden luxury at a great price!

A lovely house tucked away between the Otley Rd. & the Leeds - Liverpool Canal.
Ist. Floor room enjoyed views across the paddock to the nearby woods & also into the stables area. Really well appointed room & the decorations throughout the house were 1st. rate. Lovely, engaging couple Val & Michael, running the place, taking great pride in what is their home as well. Made space to garage our tandem bike in the dry for us, much appreciated. Will definitely use this B&B again when visiting the area

We've stayed with Val and Michael at Ford House Farm over the years, while visiting family in the area. Cheery greeting, very comfortable room, lovely grounds, great English breakfasts and lots of helpful driving directions. It's our home away from home in the Yorkshire Dales.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice

I have stayed in Shipley five times now at various locations. Stumbled upon Ford House Farm online and plan to stay again on future visits. Great location, sumptuous room, all facilities you would expect at top hotel, flat screen, wifi etc. Was made to feel very welcome by Val, would highly recommend this over any of the hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Quiet location, off the main road, very tranquil
