The landscape is rural and rolling, the lanes are narrow and quiet, and Healey is pretty-as-a-picture: mellow York stone, smart gardens and immaculate paintwork on every house. Richard and Sarah, relaxed and genial, offer homemade cakes and coffee when you arrive and the cosy feel of their home makes you feel instantly at ease. Enjoy a sitting room with an open fire and fabulous fabrics, fresh and cottagey bedrooms with spotted upholstered windows seats, and vases of flowers in every corner. There are great views from the lovely walled garden, acres to roam, wonderful walking, and tip-top towns to visit all around.

"I cannot rate this quintessentially English and heart-of-Yorkshire B&B more highly; it is a genuine delight. The accommodation is in a beautiful Yorkshire stone farmhouse with views out onto God’s country from all bedrooms. A great night’s sleep was followed by a warm welcome to breakfast in the morning by Sarah. Her hospitality was unobtrusive whilst being sharply attentive and the breakfast was plentiful and certainly fit for a day in the hills. Overall the cost was an absolute bargain for such a warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and beautiful location."

"Having had a wonderful weekend at Firs Farm in Masham I feel compelled to reward such a first rate B&B with feedback. It was easy to find and our welcome was genuine and warm and included tea and a selection of homemade cakes. The accommodate was beautiful and the views from our room, breath taking! Sarah and Richard were excellent hosts. So attentive to our needs, going that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. I would visit again without hesitation. Superb! "

"Firs Farm is a wonderful oasis of calm and comfort, and Sarah a delightful hostess, providing fabulous food, plenty of ideas of things to do and places to eat, and guide books and maps whenever we needed them. We had a great welcome when we arrived - tea and home-made cake provided by Sarah and her daughter Emma inadvertently wearing matching tops! We felt we were part of the family, and so enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect, including the extremely comfortable bed! If we're in that region again, we'll definitely stay here, if it's not completely booked up!"

"What an absolutely stunning place to stay. From the warm welcome to the beautiful bedrooms, stunning surroundings, gorgeous homemade cakes (so nice!), beautiful breakfasts and top tips from Sarah on places to go there is nothing to find at fault with Firs Farm. This is one of the best places we have stayed - well done Sawdays for finding this gem of a place. Cannot recommend a visit to this B&B enough. It's just wonderful! "

"THIS TRULY IS A SPECIAL PLACE TO STAY. THE SETTING, THE PEOPLE AND THE PLACE LIVE UP TO ALL EXPECTATIONS. WE HAD PLANNED A MYSTERY WEEKEND FOR OUR FRIENDS WHICH INCLUDED ATTENDING AN EVENT AT NEARBY SWINTON PARK AND SARAH & FAMILY KINDLY AGREED TO KEEP THE SECRET AND GO ALONG WITH OUR PLANS. WE HAD TEA AND CAKES ON THE LAWN ON OUR ARRIVAL AND THEN SARAH VERY KINDLY TOOK US ALL TO THE EVENT, OUR ROOMS WERE IMMACULATE & BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED. BREAKFAST WAS A FEAST. NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE. DEFINITELY RECOCOMMENDED & ALREADY TRYING TO FIND TIME TO RETURN TO THIS DELIGHTFUL PLACE."

"We had a wonderful stay at Firs Farm. The bedrooms are the most stylish and comfortable rooms we have stayed in - fresh and homely. We had a delicious breakfast sat in the gardens admiring the beautiful scenery- everything we ate was pleantiful, fresh and either home made or very local (bacon). It was very difficult to leave this little haven, the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this B & B to anyone and advise all guests to request homemade flapjack with their welcoming coffee upon arrival!!"
