About Us

Paul and Hilary Finney welcome you to Harmony House our AA 4 star gold  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 wild flower meadow called the Green and parts date back to the 17th Century. It is a prominent Victorian fronted residence and has played a big part in the village life over the years beginning as agricultural cottages, used as a Sunday school, reading room and post office, 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.  

Our rooms are all en suite with mini fridges, fresh milk, homemade treats with a locally sourced freshly cooked breakfast is included in the room rate.  Our guest lounge has a log fire in winter and there is free Wi-Fi throughout.  

Guests arriving by cycle or motorbike can enjoy safe parking, washing & drying facilities, and there is an hourly bus service throughout the daytime (except Sundays), which takes 20 minutes to York.  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.

Stillingfleet  is a small  traditional rural village which has a Norman Church, a  basic pub (closed on Tuesdays) and  plentiful history.  Ideal for a quiet relaxing break.

A variety of good pubs and restaurants can be found within 3 miles in the villages of  Escrick, Naburn, Cawood and Riccall. If you prefer to relax and leave the car we can provide an evening meal at Harmony House but this must be booked and chosen in advance.   Weekends are subject to availability.  

Taxis come from York or Selby and are charged accordingly so if possible with prior notice we will take you to your local event, the 415 bus in Escrick,  or to collect your car in the morning.

Small groups of family or friends can enjoy the hospitality of Harmony House to themselves for a special occasion or just a get together.  We can incorporate a special meal or afternoon tea for guests and local friends or relatives.  Paul with a history of classic cars and bikes can organise a bespoke  tour  and Hilary runs a small cookery school and can incorporate a pre booked special cookery workshop or dinner into your stay   

The house has no facilities for children. 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.
