come and try this small friendly Guest house. Within easy walking distance to the Centre of York and the Minster. Very comfortable rooms and wondrful full english breakfast. Disc parking supplied bb the Fartings so no problems there. We enjoyed our short (long weekend) stay and would go back again.

Fantastic, cosy accommodation very well presented, quiet as opposed to say Premier Inn utilised by many different types of guest, yet still within easy 10min walk of the town centre. Your host, Helen, is lovely and happy to accommodate wherever possible. For us breakfast was perhaps a little early for a weekend, but this is possibly due to the parking...

Me and my partner stayed in October for a weekend. Lovely clean and quiet accommodation at an excellent price. 10/15 minute walk to the city centre but 5 mins to the nearest 'junction' of the walls. Lots of lovely little restaurants nearby but this place had an excellent selection at brealfast and the full English was lovely! The only downside...

I had the pleasure of staying at Farthing for 4 nights in a family room. We received the warmest of welcomes and nothing was too much trouble to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was clean, cosy and the beds extremely comfortable. The perfect place to rest weary feet after walking around York! The breakfasts were excellent,...
