Paul and Hilary Finney hope you will join us at our 4 star gold award AA rated traditional bed and breakfast in a small rural village between York and Selby. 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.
Harmony House overlooks the meadow called the Green and parts date back to the 17th Century. The prominent Victorian fronted residence has played an important part in the village life over the years beginning as agricultural cottages, 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.
Stillingfleet is a small traditional rural village situated within a 3 mile radius of Escrick, Naburn, Cawood and Riccall with a Norman Church, a basic pub (closed on Tuesdays) and plentiful history. Taxis come from York or Selby and are charged accordingly so if possible with prior notice we can take you to your local event, the 415 bus in Escrick, or locally to collect your car in the morning. There is an hourly bus service which takes 20 minutes to York throughout the daytime (except Sundays),
All our rooms are en suite with mini fridges, fresh milk, homemade treats. A locally sourced freshly cooked breakfast is included in the room rate and there is free Wi-Fi throughout. Some rooms have sofas and there is a guest lounge with log fire in winter.
Would you like to eat in or out? There are many good pubs and restaurants within 3 miles of Stillingfleet without venturing into York or you can book an evening meal with us if you prefer to stay in.
Are you arriving by cycle or motorbike? Harmony House has safe parking, washing & drying facilities. Harmony House is easily accessible from all major trunk roads and motorways and a convenient rural stopping point to break your travel up or down the UK. The Dales, North York Moors and East Coast are within an hour's drive.
Thinking of a shortbreak away with friends or family? Harmony House is an ideally situated for meeting up from all parts of the country. Over the years we have enjoyed the company of many guests from family reunions to classic car or bike groups. We are happy to cater for a special meal or afternoon tea for guests,local friends or relatives. Hilary runs a small cookery school for groups and can also incorporate a special cookery workshop or DIY dinner into your stay.
There are no facilities for children at Harmony House however our annex with a separate entrance can be self-catering for families with provisions for a cereals and toast breakfast in the annex kitchen.
We hope you will find us the perfect antidote to City life.

"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."
