Just got back from a mid-week break and already planning to book again for Christmas time! Terry couldn't be more helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfortable (with free WiFi), breakfasts were delicious (fresh fruit, cereal, teacakes, toast, yoghurt, full English, omelettes, pancakes!), and the gardens were like visiting a mini farm park - horses, sheep, goat, fish pond, lovely...

Can't say enough nice things about this place--the owner was so friendly and accommodating. Very good breakfasts. So nice to have fresh fruit and not your typical English breakfast. But the really special part was the animals. My 11 year old daughter loved all the animals. Terry was so kind to her and took her out to the bunnies so... More

I recently stayed at Fifth Milestone Cottage for a long weekend in York. The B&B is ideally situated merely five minutes from Grimston Bar Park and Ride to the east of the City. After a nightmare journey to get to York, Terry was very welcoming, got me checked in, and even booked me a table at a local pub for... More

We stayed for one night in the Paddock Suite. Great room with a superb bathroom. It was great to stay in a B&B with our own grounds and garden. Located close to a busy road there is road noise but ear plugs are provided to ensure that you still have a good nights sleep. All staff were great and couldn't... More

Fantastic rooms with super bathrooms set in lovely gardens. Great breakfast and owner Terry very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Large play area at the rear for families with young children who would also enjoy the animals. Short taxi ride into York or you can use the park and ride. Would definitely recommend.

Stopped off here on our second night on cycling the coast to coast route! Absolute suburb place. From the moment we arrived the owners couldn't have been more helpful, tea and cake, quick wash down of the bikes, and a secure place to leave them over night. The rooms were excellent, with all those little extras that make a difference.... More

Excellent experience all round, staff were friendly, the room clean & the bed comfortable. The owners also accommodated for an early arrival with no issues. Breakfast was included in the price which was also lovely. There has been much work on renovating the cottage & it really shows, the setting being superb. Would stay here again, definitely recommended!

This is the second stay at Fifth Milestone Cottage this year and every bit as good as the first - lovely room and fantastic breakfast. It is a great location for anyone wishing to explore York or the surrounding places of interest and not too far from the North York Moors. We plan to return in the autumn!

We arrived as costumers, but left as friends. We chose Fifth-Milestone Cottage for our annual family get together, and had four rooms in total. From the moment we arrived it was service with a warm smile nothing was a bother, If Terri could have ordered sunshine she would have done. We stayed in the orchard room which was spotlessly clean,... More
