“Enjoyable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We stayed in the chapel suite for 2 nights. The house is beautiful, charming and spacious. The location is ideal - in the heart of Tetbury. The rooms were attractive, quiet, large and well appointed. Our host was very helpful and extremely organised. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was tasty. I would stay there again.

We stayed a couple of nights in the Master suite recently. It was a large nicely furnished room with a comfortable king sized bed and a modern bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious.
Brock is a brilliant host, makes you feel very welcome and can give you all the local information you may need. York House fully deserves it's number one rating on Tripadvisor.
We'll be back when in that area again.
Highly recommended.

Lovely cosy private country house, new, clean and well decorated, run by Brock a friendly and helpful host. Delicious breakfast. Perfect situation in the centre. I checked out the other hotels there, and it is really the only place worth staying in the centre of Tetbury. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We stayed in the Master suite and Oyster room for 1 night whilst visiting the nearby magnificent Westbirt Arboretum. On arrival we were given a very warm, friendly and relaxed welcome by the young owner Brock who also offered helpful advice on restaurants and local sights.
We loved our rooms which were both beautifully decorated with stylish soft furnishings and in the master suite with an extremely comfortable and huge super king bed. We loved our luxurious linens, fantastic brand new sparkling bathrooms,lovely bathroom smellies, stylish antiques, beautiful lighting, interesting reading material and generous hospitality trays. We felt so relaxed and comfortable that we moved about the house without a thought to locking our bedroom doors, like staying with friends. We thought the lounge, dining room and gardens were simply delightful.
In the morning Brock greeted us in the beautiful dining room with his usual winning smile and natural charm and cooked for us a delicious English breakfast while we relaxed in front of an open fire, enjoying our yogurt and fruit, toast and marmalade and wonderful coffee. I believe his sausages are a local award winning produce and they were truly delicious.
We can recomend York House wholeheartedly, and we know we will be back again and again.
Thank you Brock, we had a fantastic stay you deserve your number one trip advisor position.

We were staying at York house to attend a wedding at the Great Tythe Barn which was just down the road. York House is also ideal for a wander around Tetbury either for a coffee and cake or for an evening walk. We even managed our regular Saturday morning run up and down the hills! Brock was a superb host and his local knowledge was as excellent as his welcome. We stayed in the Chapel Suite which was very comfortable and the finishing touches of kitkats with the coffee and beautifully scented toiletries. Our son stayed in the Oyster room which was smaller but still equally well equipped.Finally the full English breakfasts set us up really well for the day ahead. Our whole experience of York House was wonderful and would recommend and hope to return.

York House and Brock...both get five green circles! We had phone problems so didn't call ahead to let him know when we would arrive and yet Brock made nary a grumble. Instead he made us welcome, gave us good information about where to have dinner, where to shop next day and he took all the time in the world with us even though he was going out with friends. Brock gets top rating as a host and the house.....well, it has all been said in the other reviews. It is tastefully finished with Brock's clever attention to detail, it isn't cluttered, it is immaculately clean, it is comfortable and of course it is worth another visit. The photo above is a little severe and belies the inner charm .... and just how DID Brock know that I would like a Kit Kat with my coffee? Oh, and the breakfast....yummy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay and I am delighted you both enjoyed your time with us. It was great learning about your home in Canada and the ins and outs of physically moving it to a better spot on your property. Very impressive indeed. I hope the rest of your travels were enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you at some point in the not too distant future!

My husband and I stayed here when a friend got married at the Great Tythe Barn down the road ( a 5 min walk away, even at the end of the night!). This B&B was very well kept and beautifully done up. The owner was very welcoming and cooks a fantastic breakfast, the place was immaculately clean and the beds and bedding really comfortable. We stayed in the smallest room but this still had it's own bathroom with separate shower and corner bath and there was plenty of space to move about in the bedroom. Lovely place for a romantic weekend away. Probably not suitable for small children unless they are very well behaved (our 2 boys aged 2 + 5 would have broken things and disrupted the neat and tidy piles of magazines (up-to-date), and probably tried to feed things to the stuffed badger!)

Thank you very much indeed for your lovely review following your stay at York House and I am delighted you enjoyed the Oyster Room which is as you say the smallest we have.

As you mentioned we are some 5 minutes walk away from the Great Tythe Bar, so a perfect location for anyone attending either a wedding or function there.
