Welcome to Harmony House bed and breakfast in a small rural village between York and Selby.
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.
All our rooms are en suite with mini fridges, fresh milk, a variety of complimentary hot and cold drinks and homemade treats to snack on. A locally sourced freshly cooked breakfast is included in the room rate and there is free Wi-Fi throughout. Some of our rooms have sofas or you can relax in our guest lounge which in winter has a log fire.

"We stayed in the small apartment in April -a Friday and Saturday to attend a friend\'s wedding on the Saturday. I couldn\'t fault the presentation: all very clean with plenty of tea, coffee and fresh milk. The welcome was lovely and Hilary took her time to check we had everything we needed. She was flexible and accomodating. The breakfast was really lovely- great quality food. The surroundings are very beautiful too with plenty of walks. It felt more like a holiday than a short break! "
