Fifth Milestone Cottage
Ranked #1 of 3 Dunnington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Just returned from a night away to fifth milestone cottage. booked this hotel for a romantic break with my boyfriend after stumbling across it on trip advisor and reading all the rave reviews. I'm pleased to say it easily lived up to our expectations. The owners Terri and Steve were there to greet us on arrival giving us all the info we needed before showing us to our room, The Meadows. The room was warm and welcoming (just like the hosts) and very nicely decorated. Th pictures on here and the fifth milestone cottage site are very accurate. The appliances in the room were really good and having a full size fridge was a bonus (somewhere to chill the wine). We ate our evening meal in the bistro which is a small and intimate setting with candles and lovely decor and you can take your own drinks along. The food was lovely and good value and the breakfast next day was amazing, never had a breakfast with that variety and quality anywhere. We had a nosey around the grounds and are already planning our return for the summer so we can bbq on the patio and enjoy the gardens. Althought we dont have kids of our own we have 2 nieces who we'd luv to take along in the summer as it's a lovely spot for them especially with the paddock and animals. Dvd rentals a brill new facility they have just introduced if like us u r having a nice romantic night in. Couldn't recommend it more. Thanks Terri and Steve for a lovely stay!!!!

From the friendly greeting to waving us off we were made to feel welcome. Thought the idea of ordering breakfast, just the way we wanted, the night before was a stroke of genius - and also delicious!
plan to return next time we visit the area - and would heartily recommend you do!

We stayed at the Fifth Milestone in December 2011 and as we had such a lovely time we decided to go back a year later with my parents and brother.

From the outside, the Fifth Milestone looks very festive in December and very welcoming.

Once again, we slept in the Lavender Room. There had been a few changes since the previous year - new TV, chairs and radiator. The room always smells lovely and fresh when you step inside. It's spotlessly clean and the new radiator threw out plenty of heat keeping us lovely and warm. The beds are so comfy and luxurious looking too! There are a nice selection of tea/coffee/sugar/ biscuits to choose from in the room. My parents and brother were equally impressed with their rooms and like us, would be very happy to stay there again.

The breakfast room had moved to a larger room. Our table was beautifully laid out and the breakfast was delicious. Terri and Steve are both very friendly and welcoming and cannot do enough for you.

I cannot fault this B&B at all. It is perfect in every way and all being well we will return again this year!

Just returned from our stay at the Fifth Milestone Cottage. As expected it was great. It was nice to see Terri & Steve again after a year . there has been a lot of changes since our last visit and all for the better. We stayed in the " Garden room" which is actually a 4 person family room, but as all rooms were full we had that one. there is a new breakfast room which is good. They now serve meals in the Bistro at night, but last night was closed due to other engagements, not a problem as we found a great pub nearby.
If you are looking for a place to stay this is a quality, very friendly place then this can not be beaten.
Well done !!!

This is a lovely B&B close to York, with warm & friendly hosts who really make your stay special. The paddock outside adds a nice touch, and children will love to see & feed the animals.
We stayed in the cottage bedroom, which is a newly decorated room and I would highly recommend it. The bathroom was spotless and having a TV with an inbuilt DVD player in the bedroom was an added bonus. The fridge, hairdryer, iron and ironing board were useful and the bed very comfy.
The breakfast was tasty, and we liked that we had the option of having an evening meal at the B&B.
I would advise anyone to stay here, as it's close to York but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Thank you for a lovely stay :)

Great family room for 2 adults and 2 children. Gorgeous bathroom. Owners welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious. Daughters really touched by Terri's offer to feed the animals after breakfast - made their day! Very close to University (visiting our son), Park and Ride and York itself. It was good to find somewhere to stay for 1 night - so many places have 2/3 minimum stays at weekends. Plenty of parking.
