About Us

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.

Anniversary Celebration

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harmony House to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Paul and Hilary were excellent hosts. We enjoyed chatting with them over a delicious breakfast. They made us feel very welcome. After being out sight seeing Hilary\'s home made cakes and a cup of tea made a perfect end to the day."
