I stayed her for a weekend, and cannot recommend it enough. The room was cosy and clean. I received a warm welcome and quickly settled in. You're spoiled for choice at breakfast with a fantastic choice of locally-sourced foods. I would definitely return if I'm back in the area!

Lovely guesthouse 10 / 15 minutes south of the city centre. Clean, great breakfast, easy to park, quiet. Owner is charming and very friendly. Comfortable warm room, ensuite small but it's there so no worries.

Pleasantly surprised by this stay. Comfortable room, friendly people running it who gave a warm welcome on arrival. Easy walking distance from station. Breakfast was wonderful, great choice of stuff to pick from. If I ever need a place to stay in York again it will more than likely be here

hostess was lovely, breakfast was very good, and York is a great place to visit, however the room itself (ground floor) was very noisy (road and people coming in at night) the bed was far too soft for us and I ended up sleeping on the floor, and the permanent smell from the macerator in the toilet was quite bad....

Farthings ticks all the boxes and is conveniently situated at walking distance from the City Centre, with on-street parking (with free Guest Permits). Helen and her mum make every effort to look after their guests and having stayed for 3 nights I can confirm that this place deserves its high ratings. One of...

I booked one night for a single room at Farthings. The experience totally beats my expectation. Room was tiny but classy/cozy, with everything you would expect from a hotel - in-room tea, coffee, cookies and even a bathrobe! Breakfast was another highlight. I ordered a full English breakfast and there's a breakfast bar that you can eat to your heart....

The guest house is in a quiet street within easy walking distance of the rail and bus station and the main shopping...

We had a very comfortable stay here! As soon as we arrived, our hostess gave us a city map and marked the top spots and how to walk to them from Farthings. Our room was cutely decorated and comfortable- in room tea and coffee, large bed, the bathroom tiny but adequate. The only downside was the noise- the walls were...
