The only problem was the room was freezing. The owners came in and turned on a single radiator, then brought in a portable heater but we... More

In a lovely area near the lovely village of Dunnington it is easy to get into York with a park and ride only 5 minutes away. The owners were extremely friendly and when we arrived brought tea and homemade cakes to our... More

The Primrose has large, clean and comfortable rooms, it is conveniently located just a few minutes drive from the park and ride parking for York and our dog really liked the large garden. The...
