The perfect antidote to city life
Set in a peaceful country setting away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Harmony House stands facing the village green in the centre of the pretty village of Stillingfleet 6 miles south of York. The house has an interesting history and has always played a central part of village life. It has been a reading room; a Sunday school and the rear of the house were agricultural cottages and a former village post office. Some parts of Harmony House date back to the 17th century. It has however been renovated to accommodate a modern day lifestyle. Our bed & breakfast accommodation in the house has 4 stars with a silver and breakfast award from Quality in Tourism standards inspection. We have log fires in winter, a guest lounge overlooking the Green, WIFI, and tea and cakes on arrival.
Perfect for both holiday makers and business visitors alike Paul and Hilary pride themselves in the individual attention to their guests. You may prefer to stay in and relax in our lounge after a day out or long journey, or have a midweek evening meal or snack. Weekend meals may be available for parties of four or more persons, but are subject to prior commitments. You can also invite friends or family to join you for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. Hilary was trained at the Cordon Bleu school of cookery and runs a small cookery school.
You have a key for open access whilst staying with us, but the inner doors are locked at 1 am in order not to disturb fellow guests. We are happy to run you to your car in the morning or take you to a local venue where possible. Unfortunately we do not accept children in Harmony House but we do offer a family self catering annex.
