About Us

Harmony House enjoys a beautiful location overlooking a wild flower meadow called The Green in the quiet rural village of Stillingfleet, 6 miles south of York. A warm welcome awaits with a drink and slice of cake on arrival in our guest lounge. We endeavour to make your stay at our bed and breakfast as comfortable as possible and a full English breakfast is included in the room rate.

Harmony House is easily accessible from all major trunk roads and motorways and the park and ride is 10 minutes away. We have safe parking and washing drying facilities for guests arriving by cycle or motorbike and there is a regular bus service throughout the day.

You will be pleasantly surprised how close Stillingfleet is to the city of York with just a short drive through the countryside to get you to the park and ride or the city centre. Should you prefer to venture further - the east coast Whitby and Scarborough are within an hour away where you can break your journey with a trip on the north Yorkshire railway or visit to Castle Howard, Goathland or Robin Hoods Bay. Go West, and you can visit Harrogate Knaresborough, Studley Royal and Malham Cove to name but a few with an hours drive.

Stillingfleet known as Steflingefled in the Doomsday book has a Norman Church, plentiful history and award winning Stillingfleet gardens .

There are several excellent pubs and restaurants in villages within 3 miles of us or we can cook your evening meal if booked in advance (except weekends). Hilary was trained at the Cordon Bleu school of Cookery and runs cookery activities for small groups. Paul has spent a life time in the automotive industry and now enjoys restoring classic cars and motorbikes and competing in Landrover trials. Please feel free to come and go as you please however the inner doors are locked at 1am as not to disturb fellow guests.

Harmony House dates 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. We like to think our accommodation is the perfect antidote to City life

For Families The house has no facilities for children. However we have a family annex which is self-catering with provisions for a cereals and toast breakfast.

Ten out of Five!

"We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Harmony House when we were invited to a party in nearby Cawood. A warm welcome followed by cakes and biscuits to accompany a cup of coffee were immediately a good sign of a well run establishment. The comfortable beds (yes 2 snore-proof areas in the annex) meant that we both slept very well indeed and arrived in the dining room ready to eat breakfast. The fruit salad was as it should be lots of different fruits well prepared followed by a choice of anything from the full English breakfast to variations. Excellent toast with proper bread and a choice of jams , marmalade and lemon cheese filled the tiny gap we had left. and lots of tea or coffee -nice and hot. We would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting the area and may well be back ourselves at some point."
