Breakfast was marvelous and the staff were pleasant and...

Comfortable rooms, quiet street, tasty breakfast, a personable and thoughtful host, and a friendly dog to boot! Really enjoyed our stay at The Farthings, which is walking distance from the historic center of York (Roman Walls, Micklegate, The Shambles, Yorkminster Abbey, and PUBS GALORE).

The guest house is very nice. It's clean and comfortable and has everything you need. I had an en suite room. The beds were terrible (too soft and in need of new mattress) they did provide a board for under the mattress which slightly improved it. Bathroom was a good size and very clean. The room was lovely. Breakfast was...

This was our first B&B experience, but one of many on our England trip. The bar was set high after staying here. The service was amazing, the owners are wonderful.
