We stayed here with the whole family to celebrate our mums 80th birthday and Val couldn't have done any more for us, from providing brunch on Saturday, to the flowers for mum and an amazing meal on the Saturday night. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very quiet. As we took over the B & B we had the run... More

We can't recommend Bay Tree Farm highly enough. It's in a lovely location near Fountains Abbey, with a view of fields and some beautiful walks nearby. Our room was tastefully decorated and spacious, with a very comfortable sofa and window seat as well as en suite. But best of all was the warm welcome we received from Val, who went... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Val is a very friendly host and gave us a warm welcome. Our room (Longlands) was the largest B&B room we've stayed in for a long time, and was nicely furnished. We had booked ourselves in for the evening meal, and we weren't disappointed, the food was delicious (I can't eat gluten and Val... More

Best Farm we have ever stayed in. Friendly, thoughtful, caring. Easy to find, near Fountains Abbey - one of the best National Trust sites and close to Ripon. The Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach as is other Yorkshire attractions. Room excellent, breakfast superb and very clean throughout.

You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at Bay Tree Farm. We rented the self catering cottage for a week and it was extremely well-equipped. It has recently been renovated and to a high standard. Valerie even made us a cake to enjoy during our stay! The location was ideal and close to many interesting places. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A warm welcome awaits you at Bay Tree Farm where Valerie and Andrew Leeming offer home hospitality in a truly rural setting close to Fountains Abbey. All bedrooms are en suite and the kettle is always on the boil. On offer too is excellent country cooking. The farm is in a small hamlet so there's no noise from traffic, just hooting owls, and curlews for neighbours. ... more   less
