I had the pleasure of staying at Farthing for 4 nights in a family room. We received the warmest of welcomes and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was clean, cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. The perfect place to rest weary feet after walking around York! The breakfasts were excellent,... More

Spent 2 nights here for a friends wedding....we were made very welcome. Room was lovely and clean, bed was great and the breakfast was fresh, hot and plenty of it! Any time we are in York we will be staying here.....the location is quiet but near everything! Short, flat walk into the centre.

I stayed for three nights while working in York and would echo the positive comments from the solo travelers below. I don't have much too add to those remarks except to say that breakfast is usually served between 8.00 am and 9.00 am, but because I was working, I needed breakfast a little earlier on one of the days. I... More

I stayed here for two nights on October 3rd and 4th 2014. The guesthouse is excellent and met our expectations based on the generally very good reviews on TripAdvisor. We stayed in room 3 which was a good size, clean, nice and warm with a very comfortable bed. We were checked in by the very friendly proprietor who gave us... More

Nothing is to much trouble for the owners and we found them very approachable for any questions that we had regarding the area.We stayed in room 8, a twin and although tight it was a conformable room with all of the facilities that you would hope for. We would stay... More

I had been in the past, and since I found it, I'm staying in here every time I need to pass through York. In fact, I change my route to stay at the amazing city of York. There are nine rooms, and several bathrooms. Breakfast is included in the price, and it's served from 8 to 9am. There is a... More

We had the main floor room. It was smallish but the furnishings were cheerful and more than adequate. The distance to downtown is stated to be about 15 minutes but for seniors like us it was more like a half an hour, but the terrain was fiarly level. The staff was very friendly and the breakfasts were ample. We stayed... More

Even though we had a small twin room, the beds were extremely comfortable and the room was clean. The tv could've been bigger and it was a bit of a squeeze getting into the shower, but there was plenty of hot water and the duck hand wash and shower gel was a nice extra. We also had the usual tea... More

The award winning B and B lives up to the highest standards, expected by its many awards, and offers superb accommodation, wonderfully filling breakfasts, catering to all tastes, and a hugely welcoming and accommodating host, Helen and her mum, Shireen (the cook). They make every effort to make your stay special. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I have... More
