This is a farm b&b. It is housed in an old stone barn conversion. My room was upstairs, with features such as a king sized bed, large screen TV, bay window seating, and large ensuite bathroom. Val also does a lovely breakfastat a community table for interacting with others. Only the intrusion of some flies did anything to detract from... More

Exceptional place to stay, warm welcoming, great food and lovely accomodation. Val it's a real credit to you how much you do for guests. Val breakfast is really very good with local bacon and sausages to die for. Very good value for money and it's even better when the fire is lit in the evenings.

We were in a room from the courtyard which was probably an old stable but you wouldn't know it! Cosy, lovely big bed and very clean and neat bathroom. Our dog was made very welcome and the room must have been very well soundproofed as she didn't wake once to protect us. Hostess very friendly and welcoming and made us... More

This the second time we've stayed at Bay Tree Farm, accommodation is first rate with King size beds. Val is a superb host and her home cooked evening meals and breakfasts are excellent . The location is close to Fountains Abbey and Ripon, and ideally situated for both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Highly recommended

Both meals were roasts , chicken then lamb,but cooked exceptionally well and the trimmings all had special twists which was a real surprise; at £20 for 4 courses (including cheese)... More

A fantastic dog friendly place to stay. The rooms are nice and spacious and the showers are amazing. Val the landlady was so friendly and kind and made our visit a thorough pleasure. Bluebell, our little shitzu had an amazing time ... Thoroughly recommended.
