A fabulous stay en famille so to speak on this working farm with the kindest couple . The kettle was always on , and the meal was more than 4 hungry walkers could eat ! OK we had to share a bathroom but we managed fine . Views to die for & a breakfast that sustained us for the day. I would love to go back but you need to go with an open mind and accept this great hardworking family for what they are .....the salt of the earth.

Would NOT stay here again.
The room had a collection of old beds. The towels were worn. Had to share the toilet and bathroom with other guests and all the family.

Think twice - other B&B's will pick you up nearby and drop you off the next day.

Our stay here was a delight. The rooms are basic but warm and comfortable. There's loads of hot water and a powerful shower. We felt able to relax in the sitting room and were happy to hear about the various livestock on the farm and the general farming topics that came up. The evening dinner was fantastic - home reared pork, home grown vegetables, home cooked and plentiful. The breakfast, too, was great. We felt really welcome. It's definitely worth the short detour from the path.

camped in field with the most basic facilities but met
two other campers who laughed about the rough camping so had a good night

The only option if you want to stay in this area without major detour. Adequate, if you don't mind no-frills, no privacy, and fitting in around farming/hunting lifestyle. Small house, adequate but shabby bedroom. Good evening meal, adequate breakfast, ample packed lunch. Modestly priced. Would not stay again.

Stayed here in September, and although accommodation is very basic, the family are very welcoming and very friendly. Suspected that the sheets were probbaly never changed from the previous occupant!!. You have to remember this is a working farm and you share the family home. Funniest part was when our uncle, who was on the walk with us, tried to tune the old black/white TV set in his room, which we could here from our room...........this provided entertinment and many laugh for days. The shower however was very good and powerful. Overall a great experience

Seemingly unlike most of the previous reviewers. we were disappointed with this accommodation.

Perhaps ours is a slightly jaded view as we come from a farming community so farm-life is less of a novelty to us, but we did feel that Beakhills offered poor value for money compared to other working farms (and indeed non-working farms and B&Bs) that we stayed at. Bedding, towels and tv were old, the unkemptness went beyond

If you like the real 'Down on the Farm Experience' you will love this, sharing all of owners own accomadation. Very friendly and welcoming.

One of the highlights of our trip. Beak Hills gives you a great insight in to upland farming on the North York Moors.

The Cook family make you very welcome serving up a great evening meal and breakfast. It was so nice to eat some home-cooked food.

We would recommend it to anyone.
Chris and Mel, left on 19 July 2009
We thought our stay at Beakhills Farm was one of the highlights of the whole trip. The welcome was fantastic and the evening meal was much appreciated. It was lambing time which made our visit even more interesting. Although the farm is bit off the route we would recommend a stay here to anyone.
(We stayed thereon April 5th)

Beakhills is a bit scary in appearance on the outside (my buddy almost bailed as we walked up to it), but it's decent inside. The host was super nice. However, we were unexpectedly charged (7.50 pounds!) for dinner. The breakfast seemed good, but my buddy and I both did not feel good by noon that day. The last two points keep me hesitant from recommending this accomodation.
Rip from California, left on 12 September 2007
Some may find this a bit rustic and basic, but we enjoyed our stay very much- warm, large room (double)- delicious meal at night and for breakfast, generous packed lunches, hosts can tell you a lot about the area and the farming community- it is close to the path so you can avoid trying to walk a lot further or arrange transportation- and we were welcomed with tea, orange-chocolate biscuits and as fans of Heartbeat- watched it on TV.
Stayed on Aug. 14th

Although easy to miss when you're not paying attention it is almost on the route and worth the visit as long as you appreciate this is a working farm.
At Beakhills Farm you are not so much the paying customer in a b+b, more a guest were you can learn a little of what goes on in the countryside you are passing through. The lift provided by Mrs Cook to and from the local pub for refreshments was much appreciated as was the typical hearty breakfast.
It was a pleasure being a guest there.

Very basic, but adequate accommodation in a very remote farmhouse just half a mile off route. All facilities are shared with the farmer and his family, who have farmed here all their lives.The evening meal offered simple plain home cooking - their own roast lamb, with a wonderful oven-cooked rice pudding to finish. Generous lunchpacks.
Mary and Capell Aris, left on 06 May 2006
Friendly welcome from all the family.
Large quantity of home-cooked food.
Accommodation may be a bit basic (and rural) for some.
