Fantastic B&B just 10 minutes walk along the river into York, owners could not be more helpful and everything you could want for a few days away is here, look forward to going back next year and maybe for a few more days this time

Located within a 10 minute walk to the city centre. Nice clean tidy rooms with tea/coffee making facilities. Comfortable and warm with pleasant staff. Recommended and value for money considering how close you are to the city centre.
