Such a lovely warm and friendly welcome, was followed by some great information and advise about the local area which totally made our weekend. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and the whole place felt relaxed and I really wished we could have stayed longer.

Thankyou for a wonderful stay at your beautiful B&B a very warm welcome,wonderful breakfast with superb choice,very clean with beautiful bed linen,we would highly recommend Harmony House, after running are own B&B for 24 years we would definately return, Thankyou
Thank you Maurice and Anne for your lovely review. It is a great accolade from such established B&B owners. I must admit I was a little nervous. I do hope that Maurice is continuing to improve and that you do manage to get a break away again when he feels better. Wishing you the very best. Hilary
Reviewer: Maurice and Anne Halliday | Wed 4th Jan 2017
We stayed for two nights combining a visit to our daughter at the university with some time in York. Paul and Hilary could not have made us more welcome. We loved the tea and cakes and the delicious breakfasts with every possible option you could want. We stayed in the Poppy room which was warm and spacious and had everything we needed. This is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in, thank you we hope to be back.
Thank you very much Margaret I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and do hope that you will visit again. I apologise for the late reply. Kind regards Hilary
Reviewer: Mrs. Margaret Spikings | Wed 7th Dec 2016
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.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased we made your wedding anniversary something to remember. we wish you both the very best and hope to see you again if you are in the area

Reviewer: Mr. Michael Wraith | Sun 17th Jul 2016
Hilary are Paul are very welcoming hosts who offer first class food and accommodation. One of the best B&B experiences we have had in the UK. Great location for anyone visiting the York area who would rather be in a splendid rural location outside the city. Highly recommended.

A truly excellent B&B which also provides delicious meals on request. After a very long journey we were warmly welcomed and able to relax with tea and homemade cakes.The village is well sited for visits to lots of local places of interest and we would thoroughly recommend staying here. Many thanks to Hilary and Paul.
Thank you very much Mr & Mrs Hazel. You certainly packed in a lot during your stay and we both hope you will come back and see us to visit more of our lovely county. kind regards Hilary

Reviewer: Janet Leach | Mon 6th Jun 2016
Accommodation was ideal (annex) for our family of four and we had two very good night\'s sleep on the pull-down bed. Well equipped kitchen and tasty biscuits on arrival! Well situated for York and handy Park & Ride nearby.
thank you so much Caroline. I am really pleased you enjoyed your weekend and flecibility of the annex for a young family. I hope you will be able to visit again sometime. Hilary
Reviewer: Caroline Birch (farm Stay) | Wed 1st Jun 2016
Lovely room and food was very nice, the room and house very clean the village was peaceful no noise so makes for a relaxing stay and not far from York. The only slight criticism was the room was a little to cold for me but the heating was on so not due to that .
thank you very much and I am really pleased you found it relaxing. I am really sorry you weren\\\'t as warm as you would have liked. Your room is generally warm and often guests turn the heating down or open the windows as it is south facing. It has been difficult to get it right with the unseasonable weather changes over the last month. I hope that you will visit us again. Hilary
Reviewer: Mrs. margaret barker | Wed 4th May 2016

Reviewer: Karen Gridley | Mon 2nd May 2016
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.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am really pleased your stay in the annex was ideal for you. I hope you will be back to see us again and look forward to seeing you. Enjoy your summer at home in beautiful Cumbria.
Reviewer: Janet Pruce | Tue 26th Apr 2016
Beautiful house. Had King room with view of the green. Really lovely. Food excellent beautifully cooked by Hilary. Both Hilary and Paul very welcoming with lovely pot of tea and homemade scones and biscuits.
Thank you so much for your review. I am really pleased you enjoyed your Christmas present and visiting the other side of the pennines!! . Hope fully you will come and stay with us again.
Reviewer: Mr & Mrs Hudson | Thu 21st Apr 2016
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 :)
Reviewer: Mr. Jamie Higgins | Fri 8th Apr 2016

Harmony House is the best B&B we\'ve stayed in. Beautifully appointed, comfortable, obliging and with the best meals (delicious breakfast but also excellent dinner on request). Conveniently situated for York yet with clean country air and peace and quiet. We can\'t recommend it highly enough. Thank you to Hilary and Paul for a great stay.

Reviewer: Frederick Griffin | Thu 29th Oct 2015
Stayed here for a long weekend in October with my partner for his birthday. This B&B is so much more than the run of the mill B&B\'s. The rooms are a good size and very tastefully decorated with gorgeous bedding. It was the liitle touches that really made is special, things like home-made cookies, cakes and scones. A small fridge with bottled water, fresh milk & fresh Orange juice. A large bag of kettle crisps. The en-suite bathroom was fabbo with a large roll topped bath big enough for two and a walk in shower, don\'t worry about taking soaps, shampoos, bubble bath as these are all supplied by the owner, Bath towels a plenty and are huge & fluffy.The breakfast is tasty, hot & plenty of it served in a farmhouse kitchen at a shared long table where you end up talking to other guests, relaxed & friendly. Will DEFFO be going back and will be recommending to my family & friends. It was lovely to enjoy the hustle & bustle of York but escape to the lovely quiet village of Stillingfleet approx 6 miles away for a quiet romantic evening.
Thank you very much Mandy. It was lovely to have you to stay with us and we enjoyed your company. We are looking forward to seeing you both again and hope your wedding is a brilliant day for you

This was our second 2 night weekend stay at the beautiful Harmony House, and it most certainly won\'t be our last visit. A wonderful standard of accomodation, excellent food and friendly and helpful hosts. All in all Harmony House has everything the leisure traveller could wish for and all in the fabulous setting of Stillingfleet with it\'s proximity to the city of York. Top marks on every level, and we look forward to our return before too long. Thank you. Gary and Caroline Taylor.

Reviewer: Mrs. Elizabeth Watson | Sat 5th Sep 2015
We really enjoyed our stay in the annex at Harmony House. The warm welcome with a pot of tea plus a scone and piece of cake each was much appreciated after our journey from Norfolk. The annex was immaculate and the little kitchen was well stocked with fresh milk, local bread and croissants. It all went a long way towards making our 4 day trip to Yorkshire very successful and we will definitely be staying again on our next visit.
Thank you very much Ken. I am really pleased you enjoyed another stay with us and we hope you will come again if you are passing this way. I hope your journey home was uneventful and you are enjoying the rest of the summer weather hilary
Reviewer: Mr. Ken Deighton | Tue 18th Aug 2015
Wonderful to have a cottage style apartment to ourselves. Children loved it. Free Wi-Fi and access to computer for emergencies was very helpful. Would highly recommend this place. The only disappointment was not having a shop in the village. Hopefully soon rectified.
Thank you for your review. Sadly many rural villages don\'t have a shop any more and at present our local garage is being refurbished, but we try and give you as much as possible for your stay so you wont need one. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in York. Hilary
Reviewer: Leela Narayanan | Wed 5th Aug 2015
We stayed at this lovely b&b 10th & 11 this July. We definitely would recommend it, Hilary and Paul are so lovely, kind and will do anything to make you feel comfortable, like home from home. Such a pleasure to meet you both and we will definitely be back. The rooms are clean and tidy and we loved all the personal touches they left for us, especially the home made cookies. It\'s in a beautiful, quiet and relaxing location, and not far from the York Deisgner Outlet, which we took total advantage of. Thank you both Stacy & Jay

Reviewer: Mrs. Susan Palmer | Fri 26th Jun 2015
We normally use 5 star hotels when we travel but we had a great experience from the standard of ACCOMADATION,SERVICE AND FOOD which Hilary and Paul delivered. They have got it right and if you miss this it is your loss if visiting York as the Park and Ride is a very short drive away. We had a fab stay and would stay again when in the area. THANKS.

We left Yorkshire for \'life down South\' some 60+ years ago, but return regularly (if infrequently) to visit longtime friends. Our stay at Harmony House was excellent in every respect. Nice room, nice breakfast and nice people--and no parking problems!. Very convenient for bussing into York, but a haven of peace to return to at the end of each day. Would happily return to Harmony House and have no hesitation in recommending it to any who might think of visiting this part of Yorkshire.
Thank you for your lovely response Alan. Apologies for the delay. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and being back in Yorkshire again. Paul and I hope you will return to see us again soon and sample the northern life once more !! with best wishes Hilary
Reviewer: Alan Rayner | Fri 5th Dec 2014
We were looking for an overnight stay around the South York area after a business visit to nearby Malton. We booked the Harmony House direct after finding via another website. From the very first contact we were made to feel very welcomed and this was extend throughout our stay from both Paul and Hilary who make the perfect hosts. On arriving the house looked and felt so warm and inviting and our room, The King Room, didn\'t disappoint either. Overlooking the Green at the front of the house the room was as suggested - king size in every sense. Very comfortable and homely too. I\'ve stayed in a lot of B&B\'s and hotels for business over the years and I have to say they would all benefit and learn from taking a look at this lovely place. Thanks for a lovely stay and look forward to returning in the future. Excellent stay, Excellent food and excellent value

Reviewer: Mr Shaun Leavey | Tue 26th Aug 2014
Having stayed at Harmony House on a visit to York last year, we were keen to stay again when we came up for our son's graduation. Hilary and Paul are welcoming, friendly, informative and nothing is too much trouble. The food - breakfast and a celebration dinner - was superb and our accommodation in the annexe clean, comfortable and flexible. We can't recommend Harmony House too highly and are sorry to have run out of excuses for future visits.
Thank you Anne. It was super to see you again and only disappointed that your son has finished at York University and you wont be visiting him here. Maybe you will have an excuse to drop by again - I hope so. Hilary
Reviewer: Mrs. Anne Henwood | Thu 7th Aug 2014
We are on a road trip around yorkshire and have never stayed in a b&b before and did not know quite what to expect, to say we landed on our feet would be an understatment . Hilary and Paul are two of the lovliest people and can't do enough for you and the house is beautiful. We had the family annex as all the other rooms were full, the annex consisted of bedroom with en suite , lounge and kitchen with all that you could possibly need and more and all beautifully done . Thankyou so much for making our first experience such a lovely one, we hope to see you again one day , much love Heather and Andy Rosenthal x

My wife and I have stayed in a variety of hotels and B&B's. Harmony House ranks with the very top hotels and B&B's. Hilary and Paul made us very welcome when we arrived and were attentive throughout our stay. The bedroom was spacious and spotlessly clean and comfortable. The food was of the highest standard and more than ample. We could not fault any aspect of Harmony House, or its owners, or the location. We would recommend the venue to anyone without hesitation or proviso. It would most certainly be our number one choice the next time we visit York.
Thank you so much for the lovely review Mr & Mrs Holmes. It was a pleasure to look after you both and we hope your journey home was without problems. We look forward to seeing you again. Hilary
Reviewer: Mr & Mrs Holmes | Sun 30th Mar 2014
If you are looking for excellence then look no further than Harmony Hotel..it is ideally located near to York (20mins) and ask Hillary or Paul about Park and Ride nearby ...much cheaper than Yorks expensive car park charges

only one word to describe the hospitalily of Hilary and Paul - excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, Hilary went out of her way to accommodate our wishes, we had an excellent lasagne and salad one night and lovely homemade cakes on arrival. Accommodation was spotless and comfortable. We would highly recomend anyone to stay here for a comfortable homely few days break. my husband really enjoyed his 'Cooking for the boys' day. A great weekend. Thank you.

I took my mum and my son (15) for a weekend visit to Harmony House and we stayed in the annexe. We loved it - all the beds were comfy and even in extreme weather we were nice and warm. Hilary was a lovely host - we had enough breakfast provisions for our stay along with some lovely home made scones. The B&B is approx 15-20 mins from York and we travelled in to the centre by car. We would definately recommend the B&B -and we will be booking again next year. :)
Reviewer: Mrs Doreen Corcoran | Wed 5th Dec 2012
We phoned to see if we could arrive earlier and this was no problem. We got a very warm welcome with coffee and home bakes. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with anything you wanted and very high standard of cooking. Lots of extras.The hotel was very cosy with a wood burning stove going the whole time. The village was beautiful. We hope to be back in the Spring.
Thank you very much. You are welcome and we hope you had a safe journey home. Look forward to seeing you again in the spring when our 'lake' is more like a meadow. Hilary
Reviewer: Mrs Robinson | Mon 3rd Dec 2012
I can thoroughly recommend staying at Harmony House. If I had a query prior to my arrival the answer was returned extremely quickly. I was made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The bed was exceptionally comfortable - even better than my own at home - and the breakfast was delicious. I had attended a cookery class which I really enjoyed and found very informative and exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be attending more classes and staying over. Can't recommend enough. Don't hesitate, go and enjoy, learn something new and have a great time. Thank you Hilary and Sam it's customer service how you dream it should be.
Thank you Lynne. It was lovely to meet you and I am really happy you enjoyed the course too. Look forward to seeing you again Hilary

Reviewer: Dr. Hasmukh Jethwa | Mon 19th Nov 2012
Had a 2 night stay so that we could attend a wedding in the local area. The house is lovely and the area, especially the view over the green to the river, is gorgeous. We had a room in the main house which was large and very comfortable, breakfast was excellent with a good range of choices for those of you who don't use the excuse of being away to indulge in a full english breakfast. The biggest plus point, however was the welcome and our hosts. "A warm welcome" is an understatement, home made scones and tea on arrival. From directions to interent research to a lift to the hotel on Sunday morning to collect our car they could not have been more accommodating (and I haven't even mentioned the home made goodies in the room). In addition the house is located only a short drive from York itself. I would recommend this place to anyone and am in the process of inventing a reason to come back to the area just so we can stay here again.
It was a pleasure having you and I hope you both got home safely. Look forward to seeing you again sometime. Hilary
Reviewer: Mr Edward Day | Thu 15th Nov 2012

What a find! we fell in love with Harmony House just from the pictures and the description and we weren't disappointed when we arrived! It's ideal for 2, 3 or 4, our two young girls ( 10 & 7 ) loved thier own room / den upstairs. With old character charm in a lovely setting and lovely hosts, this really is a must stay on one proviso - you don't go when we want to go back!!!!!!
What a lovely review. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again. Love the proviso!! Hope you received your parcel

One of the best B+B we have ever stayed in. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and well presented, the food really plentiful and beautifully prepared. A friendly, helpful and welcoming atmosphere at all times. Excellent value. Thoroughly recommended.

This is my third stay at Harmony House and I would recommend it highly. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have everything you might need - including home-baked cookies! And Hilary is a lovely host.

As soon as we were met by Hilary, we realised that this was a special place. A warm welcome, inspirational decor. Comfortable & easy to feel at home. The hospitality tray had an array of teas and coffees and iresistable home-made biscuits. Our only regret was that we had not booked an evening meal, as the breakfasts were a delicious selection af all that you might want at that time of day. In two days i wasn't able to sample all of the home-made jams and marmalade - regretsbly. We are planning to return in the New Year. Many thanks to Hilary & Paul
Thank you very much. You were such a lovely family and I certainly hope we will see you again sometime. Hilary

We received a warm,friendly welcome from Hilary who was very obliging and flexible. Our room, Poppy, was delightful with everything you could think of provided. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the evening and a lovely breakast. It was a pity we could only stay for one night but we shall certainly return. Harmony House is well placed for visiting various places of interest in Yorkshire.
Thank you Mr Pratt. I hope you are abl to stay with us for more than one night next time. Hilary

We had a very pleasant stay at Harmony House and the hosts were extremely kind and helpful. Hilary's home made biscuits were delicious as a midnight snack and we would most definately stay there again and recommend it to others.
Thank you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon

Great place to stay just outside of York. A short bus ride(the bus stop is just a few steps away) or a short car ride but quiet and beautiful setting.
Thank you Erin. I hope the rest of your holiday was enjoyable and we hope to see you when you come across the pond again. Hilary

Thank you Colin. It was a pleasure to meet you and hope to see you and your wife again Hilary

This is an amazing B&B- from the moment we arrived we were looked after and we arrived early and on two motorbikes.... We had a lovely lounge to hang out in and was given complimentary cakes and coffee. Our ensuite room was gorgeous and very spacious. It had coffee, tea, fresh milk, crisps and homemade cookies to nibble as well as a variety of gorgeous smellies to sample... we had a huge bed and the most perfect breakfast with so much choice. This was our last B&B out of 6 we stayed at and this was simply the best!!!!!!! Everyone should stay here once in their life xxx
Thank you Nici. I know I have emailed you also, but it was lovely to meet you and I hope to do so again Good luck with the bike riding

without doubt the most hospitable stay I've had anywhere in a guest house; Lovely people and a hearty breakfast. I'd definitely recommend it. Instructions on how to use the TV would have been handy but I worked it out ok.
Thank you very much Paul.. I will take note of the TV as I did write a new note when we went digital, so I think a digital friendly TV would be in order now. Hope to see you again Kind regards Hilary

What a fantastic place. Host is wonderful, village is peaceful, house is 5 star. We will most definately be staying here again.
Thank you Chris What a lovely review. We will be pleased to have you all again and hope the weekend was successful for you kind regards Hilary

What a delightful home away from home. From the minute we walked in, we felt at home. Hilary gave us a great welcome. She gave us a cup of tea (and cake), as well as a lot of information about York. The room was delightful. The breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.
Thank you very much David. It was a pleasure to have you staying with us, and hope that Willow Corner B&B continues as you want it. I will certainly have your cards ready for anyone wishing to break a journey. I look forward to visiting you one day Hilary
