"THE place to stay"

Set in the beautiful, rugged Yorkshire Dales, the accommodation is excellent with good views across to the adjacent hills, really comfortable bed and all the facilities one could wish for. Both breakfast and dinner were FIRST CLASS; Pam, the owner/chef, offers unbeatable food in really pleasant surroundings. Paul, the owner/front of house offers a truly warm welcome and very helpful and friendly service at all times. Our visit was a gift from our daughter and she could not have chosen better, anywhere, anytime. We cannot wait to return.

We agree with everything the other reviews said and then some. Just returned from a 2 night break at The Old Dairy Farm.

5 star accommodation, food and service. Paul and Pam have established a brilliant, peacefull bolt hole for ramblers and getaway weekenders alike. The building is a perfect blend of country and contemporary. We felt we were walking into a relatives home and we're made welcome from the very moment we walked through the door. It was as though we had known Paul and Pam for years. The coffee and cake were just what the doctor ordered on the cold damp Friday evening.

The place is spotless. The rooms are spacious and well planned out. Piping hot water in the shower constantly. Loved everything about the place. Recommend you get there soon as this couple are contemplating retirement. Please don't well not too soon, we want to return

Winter Warmer

We stayed here for 2 nights and had the most amazing relaxing time. After a friendly welcome from Paul with fresh coffee and home made cake we were shown to our room, it was lovely, spacious, and spotless. We ate here both nights as Pam is an amazing chef. I am an annoying fussy picky eater but the food was delicious and can't remember when I last ate so much. I think I got drunk on the sherry triflle. We relaxed in the lounge with our wine and Paul came in and lite candles and put us music on in the back ground. What amazing hosts Paul and Pam are, their attention to detail doesn't go unnoticed thank you both for a lovely stay we will be returning xx


Stayed two nights at the old dairy farm in room 1. We liaised with Paul to make the booking and check in which was easy and welcoming. The room was spacious, extremely clean, comfortable bed, plenty of storage, room to get ready & lovely bathroom & shower, there were only limited toiletries (only shower gel and soap) but that wasn’t an issue.

Paul and Pam were welcoming, we mostly saw Paul who was such a kind host and made our stay feel like we were at home, very attentive. Pam, who I believe does the cooking does an incredible job! We had pre-planned to travel into hawes for dinner on our second night but changed our minds due to the sheer quality of the food and the hosts! 10/10. The restaurant menu is created the day before by Paul and Pam & you choose afternoon time on the day what time you would like to eat and your menu choices in order for it all to be freshly cooked. Both nights had excellent choices all beautifully cooked and the bar has a full wine list and is well stocked with spirits etc

Breakfast service was equally excellent & there was nothing you were without . Cooked choices were eggs Benedict, full English and smoked salmon and eggs, but you could make up anything to order from it, everything came along with the usual coffee, tea, cereal selection and we were also served some delicious yogurt and fruits.

We would definitely stay again & opt for the whirlpool bath just as a treat to ourselves. Paul and Pam have created a diamond nestled in the beautiful dales!


We as a family have visited many places in our time and do not usually visit places in the UK. The Old Dairy Farm near Hawes is really a must... We were met by Paul at the door welcoming and guiding us through to the lounge bar. We had a chat and off he went to bring afternoon tea and cake. A really good start and everything just kept getting better.. The rooms were well laid out comfortable and larger than most... the bathroom was a good size with walk in shower... and the usual items provided. The food prepared by Pam was outstanding.. breakfast was a choice.. I had full English and it was full. The choices of ingredients was great Paul taking all orders nothing to much trouble..

All food was fantastic we ate in the evening to... after the meal Paul did what he had to do and then came and chatted by the fire.. it was a late night....

All in all the weekend was a great time....

Do not pass by if you are looking for somewhere to stay ring book enjoy...
