Bay Tree Farm

Bay Tree Farm


Near Fountains Abbey,
North Yorkshire,


Nr. Fountains Abbey,
North Yorkshire,


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.

Bay Tree Farm is ideal for weekend or midweek short stays or for longer breaks as there is so much to do within easy driving distances.

Many guests enjoy their stay so much that they return time and time again.

Only four miles from the ancient city of Ripon, it is an ideal centre for visiting the Yorkshire Dales, Harrogate and York.

    “Exceded expectations ”

    The room was beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was perfect with a powerful shower. Val was the loveliest land lady - nothing was too much trouble, even super late arrivals and accommodating breakfasts (which were full, hearty and delicious-cooked to order or fruit and cereals available). Location was beautiful within gorgeous countryside. Loved it!!

    Thank you Sam. It works both ways you know, you communicated with me regarding your late arrival - instructions were left - and everyone happy. What a lovely day you had for the wedding.
