Ford House Farm is a welcoming place, guests' requirements are more than adequately catered for and the facilities are well above average. Altogether a thoroughly recommended experience and we hope to return there at a future date to renew the acquaintance of Val and Mike. We had come to do a spot of research into my Moravian ancestry at Fulneck... More

Stayed here on the way to a week in Leeds to watch a cricket match; I love a bargain and, as my wife would testify, often leaves us staying in some awful places. Not this time! On arrival we were met by the genial landlady and her collies, we threw the ball for them to fetch a couple of times... More

This is a wonderful guest house.Beautifully appointed bedroom, lovely hosts in Val and Mike and a great breakfast. While staying there we had car problems. Mike took time off and organized a friend to come around and solve our car problems. I can't recommend Ford House highly enough. This is a wonderful example of north country hospitality Helen and Brian... More

I have stayed at Ford House Farm 3 times now - for business but I am returning soon for pleasure, it is that good. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and the shower the best (and I stay in lots of B&Bs around the country). What I am really returning for though is the care and service that Mike and Val... More

Stayed 2 nights for a family 'do'. This is especially good. Everything is thought of, bottles of water, sewing kits, scissors, even small folding tables in the rooms for the laptop, big comfy sofas in the rooms, luxurious showers and bathrooms, and loads of space in the rooms. Breakfast is quality, will keep you going all day. lovely friendly people... More

My room was on the ground floor and the care that Michael and Val, the owners, took in making sure everything was in place was very evident. The room was very tastefully,... More

As a solo business traveller I am used to small rooms with little space to work in the evenings. Here I had a huge room with a fabulous view of the valley and grazing horses. There were so many thoughtful touches, such as a sewing kit in the drawer, (I recently caused consternation in a five-star hotel by asking for... More
