We arrived late night but it was no problem the owners were very accommodating. They were very friendly & helpful. We had a very nicely decorated room, VERY CLEAN & comfortable. Full English breakfast was served in the morning, which was really nice. It was a shame we couldn't stay any longer, but I would definitely go back to stay... More

Fabulous stay, would recommend to everyone. Easy access to the town centre, only a 15-20 minute casual walk. Staff very welcoming from the start, room clean, tidy & comfortable. Fantastic breakfast with a great choice. All positives!

Owners were very welcoming and hospitable. My room was clean and attractively decorated. Breakfast was fabulous, locally sourced good quality sausages, bacon and eggs. Wee bit out of centre of town but good bus service with stop just yards away from house.

Wanted to take the missus away for a break from the norm and stumbled across this lovely b&b. Really accommodating from the start and even let us check in early which saved us on parking in town! The room was lovely with a few charming quirks. The route into York was a nice 20 minute walk although at our leisurely... More

A lovely bed and breakfast guesthouse on the outskirts of York. Handy parking on site to leave the car in one place all weekend. We opted for taxis to get into town as it was too cold to walk and this was easy to arrange. We had a comfortable weekend break to look around the Christmas markets and see the... More

As in most guest houses or bed and breakfast the rooms can be a little noisy and expect to hear other guests noises (walking about, opening and shutting doors etc) however this place... More
