When do you want to stay?

The dairy is situated about 300 yards from the city walls. We offer guests quality bed and breakfast accommodation and a chance to savour a piece of York history. Thsi place is full of history from an age gone bye. At first this particular establishment was constructed as a family house in 1890. The property next became a dairy, offering everything from milk to ice cream, right up until its transformation more recently in 1978.

The conversion retained many period features which can still be enjoyed by you today. These include the fabulous ceiling roses and cornices, stained and etched glass windows, and cast iron fire grates. The dairy is built round a beautiful flower-filled courtyard which many of the cottage-style rooms look onto.

Each of the rooms available to you are kept seriously clean and they are extremely comfortable without a doubt. Each one of the rooms is professionally designed with a substantial level of benefits for you. These include enchanting en suite bathrooms, colour TV and tea and coffee facilities, in addition to premium quality toiletries. We offer one family room with 1 double and 2 single beds, and also a room with a king size four poster, for the ultimate in romance!

Guests Name: Andy  was travelling as Other

Good stuff: The room was clean and had a big window. The breakfast was good.

Bad stuff: The bed and pillows were horribly uncomfortable. The entire property was small and clostraphobic. Not much service to speak of.

Overall: I would have liked to know that I would be lugging my luggage up 2 flights of stairs that the whole property consisted of 4 bedrooms and a dinning room. There was no lounge to relax in. The room had a 4 poster bed that dominated the entire room and a tiny tv sat at the end on a dresser but the poster ran down the middle of it and made it almost impossible to watch tv in any kind of posiiton from the bed.
