A working-farm welcome in the heart of the Dales
Share this idyllic period property with sheep, hens and horses in the Nidderdale AONB. Firs Farm is a traditional Grade II listed farmhouse with barns dating back to the 14th Century, with glorious views across the valley to the heather moors. It offers traditional farmhouse accommodation with lots of extra luxury touches: cakes on arrival, locally-sourced breakfasts and unexpected comforts. It’s truly beyond a home from home.
Guests here have their own separate entrance giving a high degree of privacy. Your own set of stairs lead up to the guest bedrooms. Bedroom One has a feature fireplace and a window seat, a super king sized bed (that can be twinned) and an en-suite shower room. Bedroom Two also has a window seat with a bed that can be super king or twin: it has a spacious and private bathroom just across the landing. Bedroom Three has a king sized bed and en-suite shower. All rooms can be fitted with feather or fibre duvets and pillows as required and every need is catered for: bathrobes, toiletries and fluffy towels, TVs and hospitality trays are provided and there’s wifi throughout.
A private staircase leads to the downstairs area that is also just for guests. There’s a spacious living room with TV and an open log-burning fire, and a private garden. There’s also a light and airy dining room with flexible seating for Firs Farm’s famous breakfasts, with many ingredients coming straight from the farm and all resolutely local. All types of diet can be catered for – though a little warning is appreciated.

Richard & Sarah Townsend
- Bio : Your hosts are Richard and Sarah Townsend, who took to B&B after their children left home, leaving them rattling around a huge farmhouse. Now they love introducing new friends to the area and their busy working farm. March is the usual lambing month and you're welcome to participate in the fun. They love dogs - and have several - and welcome well-behaved pets but of course these should not be left unattended. As keen walkers, Sarah and Richard can offer plenty of advice, maps, and packed lunches if required.
