Westwood Farm B&B
Welcome to the Westwood Farm bed and breakfast website.
This area of England is where you can come to in order to get away from it all, or to break the long journey between North and South!
We hope you can find all the information you need to start planning your stay in this spectacular part of the country.
However, if you have any questions about what we offer at Westwood or can be found in the wider area, please do not hesitate to ask. (If we don't know the answer, we'll find someone who does)!
Walking, Sightseeing or just passing through?
(Ever thought about a painting or photography holiday in this area)?
We specialise in supporting people who would like advice in planning activities during their stay in the area.
We can help you put together themed sightseeing such as literary, genealogy, or history based trips.
We would be delighted to assist with guided or escorted walks, or advise on access and suitability of routes.
We can provide local drop-off or pick up for those walking the long-distance routes such as the Pennine Way or Wainwright's Coast to Coast. Or why not try one of the less well-known routes such as The Pennine Journey - a 230 mile circular route pioneered by Alfred Wainwright in 1938 - which passes our door!
