‘The perfect antidote to City life’
Welcome to Harmony House a small 4 star Gold award B&B in the small rural village of Stillingfleet, near York. On arrival you will be greeted with afternoon tea and cakes in the guest lounge overlooking the Green, where in winter you can enjoy a log fire. We make every effort to provide comfortable accommodation, so you can relax, wind down, and explore our beautiful historic city and more. We hope you will enjoy the extra touches we have added, and are happy to source something specific for a special occasion on request.
Our breakfasts are sourced locally and from Castle Howard for which we have won a Kellogg’s award. If you prefer a lighter alternative you can choose an assortment from the full English or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, eggs Benedict, homemade pancakes or waffles, mushrooms brie and tomatoes on toast or smoked haddock and poached egg. If you have any dietary requirement s please let us know when booking and we can organise it for you.
We have several excellent pubs and restaurants in villages within 3 miles of Stillingfleet or if you prefer to stay in after a long day Hilary and Paul are happy to cook and serve an evening meal if booked in advance. Hilary was trained at the Cordon Bleu school of Cookery and has a small cookery school, and Paul who has vast knowledge of cars old and new, auto sport and of the surrounding area, enjoys being your host.
We appreciate that you may like to come away without children, and so we have no family rooms except in our self-catering/ family annex where we provide a breakfast hamper for your convenience in your kitchen. Your key allows you to come and go as you please, but we request you are back by 1pm unless otherwise agreed, as we lock the inner door so as not to disturb fellow guests.
Parts of Harmony House date back to the 17th Century and have played a significant part in village life beginning as agricultural cottages, then a Sunday school, reading room and post office, and now the whole house has been sympathetically restored and modernised, yet still retaining many of the old characteristics.
Situated on the south side of York we are perfect for both holiday makers and business visitors alike. Harmony House is only a short drive to York and 10 minute drive to the park and ride at MacArthur Glen designer outlet. There is also a local service bus which goes from York to Selby should you prefer not to take your car. The sustrans cycleway is close by should you wish to cycle to York or beyond.
In the village we have a Norman Church and Stillingfleet Lodge gardens as well as many walks for you to enjoy. You are a short drive to York University, Science City York, York Racecourse, McArthur Glen Designer Outlet and Fulford Imphal Barracks
When you lead a busy life it is a tonic to come away for a short break to a quiet location but still be close to many amenities. We like to say our accommodation is the perfect antidote to City life
The house has no facilities for children. However we have a family annex which is self catering and accommodates a family of 4, where we supply a toast and cereals breakfast hamper for your convenience.
