Very Good

“.Great quality lodgings.”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2020

Have stayed in two of the four lodgings at Old low moor farm and both are of a very high standard. Jeff the owner could not be more helpful. In the summer there is a high quality tennis court for the sporty, the local pub provides a very warm welcome and the food is excellent. There are many lanes to walk and we have found it an excellent base to visit the dales, north yorshire moors, Whitby, etc.
