Absolutely lovely setting, very picturesque, lovely couple who couldn't do enough for the guests. If there was a 6 star I'd give it. Room was clean, comfortable and all the amenities needed, breakfast was brilliant.

We stayed at several B&B through out England, Scotland, and Ireland, this was by far our favorite. The breakfast was AMAZING!! The owners are very friendly and inviting. The area is beautiful and there is even a little farm just up the street with Dave " the kissing" llama. The kids had the best time letting the llama kiss them.... More

Twin room is nicely decorated with its own ensuite. Breakfast set us up for the full day. Ideally situated for York as very near the Park and ride which was easy to use. It was the friendly welcome that made this an outstanding B and B along with its lovely situation.

A gem of a find ! Probably one of, if not THE best B&B we've stayed at for many a year. Celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary here. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Eric and Lesley (even down to accommodating my better halves request for Lorne and Black pud with our superb Scottish Breakfast :) ) The decor... More

Amazing location with great surrounding landscapes, a friendly Labrador that never fails to wagg his tail! and the owners are the friendliest people we have every met.... the rooms where cosy and homely, and the breakfast just added the icing to the top of the cake...... No faults could possibly be found here.

We popped on to visit friends on the way home from York and ended up taking the free room. Beautiful ground floor room which opened up onto the patio. Most welcome was the HUGE bath apparently reclaimed and renovated from nearby field and a great treat for someone with only a shower at home. There's freshly laid eggs from the... More

I'm working just out side York, and have stayed at a few b&b's and hotels before finding here, some where the run of the mill "your a number", others a bit better. Parked the car next to the house, which is down their drive and loads of space, so car's perfectly safe, walked to the front door and greeted with... More

Felt like coming home, what a wonderful welcome, what a super chap Eric and his wife Leslie and not forgetting Ted the black lab :) and their beautiful home. The bedrooms were clean and fresh with really comfortable beds, fabulous full Scottish breakfast, oh and the tattie scone you must try, yummy! Eric certainly went above and beyond the call... More

We stayed here for a friends 40th locally and are so glad we found this beautiful B&B. It is run by a lovely couple who couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are spacious, well laid out and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious and set us up nicely for our drive home. The scenery is stunning and if you're lucky... More
