Harmony House is a small bed and breakfast overlooking a wild flower meadow called The Green in the quiet rural village of Stillingfleet, 6 miles south of York. A warm welcome with a cup of tea and slice of cake awaits arrival in our guest lounge where you may catch a glimpse of the barn owl. All our rooms are ensuite and we hope you will enjoy the extra touches added to make your stay more comfortable. 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.
There are several excellent pubs and restaurants in villages within 3 miles of Stillingfleet 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, which gives him time to chat over breakfast. Please feel free to come and go as you please however the inner doors are locked at 1am as not to disturb fellow guests
Stillingfleet known as Steflingefled in the Doomsday book has a Norman Church and plentiful history. It is a short ride to York or Selby by bus or car and The Yorkshire Coast, Moors, Wolds and Dales or West and South Yorkshire attractions are within an hour away.
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.
"Although we were the only ones staying on the night, which meant we had the full undivided attention of the host and hostess I don\'t doubt we would have had a similar experience even if they were fully booked. The room we stayed in was very clean and the en suite bathroom was very well done. It was spacious and had everything we needed. I can assure you that Hilary the hostess would have gone out of her way to make any issue right anyway but we had none so it was great. We didn\'t stay for dinner in the evening but we did have breakfast in the morning. Fresh sweet fruit and a full English with tea coffee and juices. We would definitely book again if we\'re in the area! thanks! 4.5 stars if we could, we save 5 stars for the absolute exceptional. Side note: it\'s a cookery school there so there are fresh cakes and things all over the place.. Mmm tasty :)"

The hosts are welcoming and friendly, the rooms immaculate,tastefully decorated and very comfortable, and the food is lovely too. What more can I say other than, \'We will be back!\'. Thank you for making our weekend so pleasurable.
