Paul and Hilary Finney welcome you to Harmony House our AA 4 star gold traditional bed and breakfast in a small rural village between York and Selby. Harmony House overlooks the wild flower meadow called the Green and parts date back to the 17th Century. It has played a significant part in the 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 retains many of its old characteristics with some low ceilings and steps.
All our rooms are en suite with fridges , fresh milk, Eygptian cotton bedding and a locally sourced freshly cooked breakfast is included in the room rate. You can relax in our guest lounge, where guests arriving between 3pm & 5pm can enjoy refreshments after their journey, and there is free Wi-Fi throughout. We hope you will find the perfect antidote to City life.
We have safe parking and washing drying facilities for guests arriving by cycle or motorbike and there is an hourly bus service throughout the daytime (except Sundays), which takes 20 minutes to York. You will be pleasantly surprised how close Stillingfleet is to the city of York with a pleasant 10 minute drive through the countryside to the park and ride at McArthur Glen or the outskirts of York. You will find Harmony House is easily accessible from all major trunk roads and motorways and a convenient rural stopping point if travelling from the South.
Stillingfleet known as Steflingefled in the Doomsday book is a small traditional village which has a Norman Church, a pub ( closed on Tuesdays), plentiful history. Stillingfleet is 3 miles from the villages of Escrick, Naburn, Cawood and Riccall where there is a variety of shops, good pubs and restaurants, or if you prefer to leave the car and relax you can pre order an evening meal or snack (weekends are subject to availability). Taxis come from York or Selby and are charged from there
Harmony House is also ideal for small groups of family or friends to get together and use the facilities provided. Paul with a history of classic cars and bikes can organise a bespoke tour and Hilary runs a small cookery school and can incorporate a special cookery workshop or dinner into your stay
The house has no facilities for children. However our annex with a seperate entrance can be self-catering for families with provisions for a cereals and toast breakfast in the annex kitchen.

"The title explain everything. Maybe the best B&B I stayed in life. For position, the staff, the room, the research to try to satisfy every question. Excellent."
