|Welcome to York, probably the most historic city in the UK. The Roman Empire was run from York when two Emperors came to the city, and Constantine the Great was acclaimed Emperor in York. The Vikings ruled for many years and the Battle of Fulford in 1066, just outside the City Walls arguably aided the Norman invasion that year. Other battles for the City during the Wars of the Roses and the English Civil War confirmed the importance of York within the UK.
Our guest house now offers a far more peaceful experience of the City. Whether visiting York on holiday or on business our bed and breakfast accommodation is ideally located north of the City. A short drive or walk from Bootham Bar and the City Walls, and our guest house has the bonus of easy access to the North Yorkshire Moors and Dales.
|We offer Bed and Breakfast accommodation in a large 1930’s detached house, set well back from the A19 York to Thirsk (and then Edinburgh) road. With the benefit of large gardens, we offer guaranteed private off-street car parking for all our guests.
All our Bed and Breakfast accommodation is either en-suite or has a private bathroom. Rooms at the front overlook meadowland with cricket and rugby pitches beyond, on the other side of the road; whilst at the rear of the house lies a large peaceful garden.
FREE WiFi Internet access is available through-out the house - all day, every day.
Clifton Moor near the guest house supplies Multi-Screen Cinemas; Health and Fitness Facilities; Ten-Pin Bowling and other evening activities in town include theatre, concerts and a wide range of restaurants.
For those not left too tired by visiting the many attractions of York, York also has a number of theatre/concert venues offering a wide choice of entertainment throught the year and some of the best live music in the UK.
