“A real home from home...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

...and I don't award that accolade lightly. We stayed overnight for a nearby winter wedding and Brock was completely accommodating about shifting his check in times and ensuring we had a place to park. The bed and the room were very comfortable (we needed it!) and the excellent breakfast was served in the most delightful surroundings with other guests; all very friendly. Any complaints?...absolutley, I felt rotten about having to leave so soon after I'd arrived and I want to come back in the Spring. Well done Brock; you've got it absolutley right.

We booked York House for 3 nights as a mini honeymoon and couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Brock, the owner, couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. His breakfasts are wonderful, with poached eggs a la Williams F1 Team and York House sausages. Brock's reccommendations for restaurants and things to do were spot on, and helped us make the most of our three days in Tetbury. Our room, the master suite, was enornmous, spotless and beautifully decorated, and had an equally generous en suite. Tea and coffee, along with biscuits and a chocolate Santa were waiting for us each afternoon when we returned. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in!
We would happily recommend York House to anyone, and we would certainly stay there again. Thanks again Brock!

Tim & Vanessa.....It was a delight to meet you both and start you on your honeymoon, or should I say honeymoons as this was the precursor to South Africa. Thank you both very much indeed for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor and your kind words are most appreciated.

Can't recommend York house highly enough. We stayed in the master suite and the room was lovely. Brock the owner was there to greet us on arrival and made us feel so welcome. Will definitely be returning.

Where do I start, other than everything was perfect! I have stayed at many B&B's, and unfortunately had come to believe that staying somewhere that was flawless was just never going to happen within my price range. I was proven wrong, very wrong! From the second I stepped inside York House, I was made to feel so welcome that I quite fancied staying forever! The house itself is absolutely stunning, with effortless charm and homeliness - you can tell that Brock (the owner) takes pride in everything, and I mean everything, he does. From the decoration of the rooms to the magazines to the toiletries in the bathroom, everything is delicious. That brings me to the breakfast! Needless to say, every morning I was greeted by a smile and yummy options to start my day. You will not find a breakfast anywhere like the one you get treated to when you stay here. I'm not even exaggerating! I spent 5 days here and I can not wait to come back. The bed was incredibly comfortable - I even asked about the pillows they were so comfy! To Brock I say thank you for such incredible effort - it has not gone unnoticed!

We have been disappointed by the standard of B and Bs in England many times, but York House restored our faith and proved that it can be done. Clean, comfortable in a great position with a large garden. The owner Brock who lives on site, made us very welcome and provided us with a full English breakfast - vegi sausages for non-meat eaters - all at a very reasonable price - well done Brock!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Master Suite - large and very comfortable with great ensuite.

Bonfire night in Tetbury was great fun, not just the fireworks but the hospitality shown by Brock, owner of York House.
Warm reception on arrival after a long and tiring journey, cosy room, local fireworks display, delicious dinner in nearby Nailsworth, comfy bed, great sleep, fantastic breakfast with the now famous York House sausages, lovely walk recommended by Brock, Sunday newspapers in front of the fire, Sunday lunch with old friends and new ones, dancing into the night, another excellent sleep, another yummy breakfast.
