We have just returned from Bay Tree Farm having had the most wonderful few days there. Val was yet again the most gracious of hostesses... Nothing is too much trouble, even down to boiling the eggs for the children to throw at nearby Fountains Abbey for the Easter Event there. Her amazing cooking using seasonal ingredients is a joy! The...

Baytree farm is idealy placed for the Ripon area which includes Fountains Abbey, Ripon cathedral and the Yorkshire Dales. The warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and home cooked meals were a real treat. Thoroughly recommendable!

Where do I start! We were greeted warmly and after being shown to our rooms were offered cake and tea/coffee in the living room. With the lovely log burner and cosy sofas it was extremely relaxing. Val, who is extremely friendly and welcoming, also does dinner and we sat down to a wonderful four course meal, at a staggeringly reasonable...

Val makes you feel most welcome, comfortable en-suite rooms and great food which is locally sourced, nothing is too much trouble. Bay Tree Farm is situated close to Ripon town centre and Fountains Abbey but in a lovely rural area.

After first discovering this delightful B & B two years ago, we had to return. This time for 5 days and enjoyed our stay just as much as in 2012. The hospitality provided by Val is first rate and I can understand why so many guests return again and again. Evening meals are available if prior arranged with Val or...

We stayed at Bay Tree Farm for an overnight stop on the way up north. Val welcomed us with a pot of tea and some delicious cake, most welcome after a day of driving. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Val is a very friendly host, we would love to have stayed longer and would definitely...

My wife & I had Barnside room. It`s small and the large window has only a very small opening for ventilation but the view is over the lawn and garden and the en suite is quite adequate. We were kept awake at night by annoying sounds of running water in pipes which turned out to be due to the farm`s...

This was our second stop en route to Scotland. We were a little anxious as our planned stop elsewhere had just been sold. Wow, I am glad we had the opportunity to come here. Do not be put off by the approach - it is a farm and Val is a working farmer's wife. Once in the door the welcome...

Read all the reviews about this place. They are true I fact it went beyond my expectation. I was nervous about taking my son and his friend (both 8) away on my own. Val and her team were great and knew how to handle little boys. The only downfall was my husband was not there to enjoy it, bug it's...

We visited Val last year when we did the coast to coast cycle ride, thoroughly enjoyed the warm friendly welcome we received and we were not disappointed with our return. We are a group of cyclists and Val knows what a cyclist appetite is like, excellent food for meal and breakfast and even gave us a lovely piece of shortbread...

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
