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

Really friendly and helpful B&B. Nice spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation in a good location, which is reasonably priced taxi ride away from York and quite near to the park & ride. Very helpful and welcoming owners. We don't, but very nice area at the back for young kids. Plenty of off road car parking. Really excellent breakfast. Cannot be... More

Fifth Milestone Cottage is a very well presented B&B, easy to find situated on the A1079 Dunnington just outside of York. I was impressed with my room, it was spotless, had character and a beautifull on-suit showeroom. In the morning breakfast had a nice selection of fresh fruit, cereal and fruit jucies, tea and toast was served to my table... More

I would highly recommend staying here. We stayed for one night in the Orchard room. Room was clean and comfortable, very nice view and relaxing seating area. We were greeted by the owner who couldn't do enough for us, very friendly and very accommodating. Will definitely stay again in the future.

Just returned from a one night stay at Fifth Milestone Cottage. On arrival Terri and Steve were there to greet us and made us feel welcome. The children made full use of the swings, footballs and other equipment that was available on the lawned area. Terri brought us all a drink, cake and some chocolates within 30 minutes of arriving....
