a friend and I had to attend a meeting so we took a train from the south coast and decided to stay for 2 nights. The farthings is a small B&B just 20 minutes walk from the city centre. It is situated in a quiet residential area. Our bedroom was on the ground floor (my friend doesn't do stairs) -... More

Really lovely B&B in York, ideal base for exploring the city. Near main bus routes and about a 15 mins walk from train station. Room was very clean and well maintained with cosy decor, just what you need on a cold autumn evening. Bathroom was shared with three other rooms but was clean and available when needed. Breakfast is included... More

Meeting friends for the weekend and booked room 9 for a couple nights. Single room on the top floor with shared bathroom right outside the door. Everything was just as I expected having chatted with the friendly landlady Helen. The room is small but met my needs perfectly. Clean, well equipped with basin. The shared bathroom was equally clean and... More

My 9 year old daughter and me stayed here for 3 nights over the October 1/2 term. We were welcomed by Helen and whilst signing in my daughter noticed several cat ornaments on the table. We found out that they have 2 cats and 1 dog which my daughter was then desperate to meet! We had a twin room (no.1)... More

We arrived on 6th November for the weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. It had been a treacherous journey with torrential rain and winds so the Farthings was a lovely sight when we arrived. We were warmly greeted by Helen who then showed us to our room. The room was decorated in a William Morris type print that gave a... More

An excellent guest house with very friendy staff. A very comfortable house at an excellent location: about ten minutes walk into the City. Hosting was first class. Breakfast, the company and the guest house's general ambience was very good. York is an outstanding city to visit and has numerous attractions.

I am retired in my early seventies, and have very much enjoyed my first visit to York, and with a friend, stayed for three nights at the Farthings Guest house. Helen and her family made us feel most welcome and were very helpful; our room and the guest house was spotlessly clean, and the twin beds comfortable. The breakfast could... More
