We stayed at the Bracken Lodge for a week with our two teenaged children. Julie and Sandy are perfectionists when it comes to being hosts. Our rooms were modern, luxurious, with ever detail attended to-the beds are amazing and the towels heated. Before tea time, fresh milk and biscuits magically appeared at our door. The breakfasts were sumptuous with everything...

My husband and I stayed at Bracken Lodge for 4 nights in June. Our room (No 2) was spacious, with a really comfy king sized bed and a large spotless bathroom ensuite. The B&B section of the house is modern and purpose built. The location, just outside York, was excellent with a bus into York just across the road and...

Just returned from a two night weekend stay with friends. I cannot praise this place enough. It is the best 4star b&b we have stayed in, in York by far. We decided to stay here as the hotels in York were too expensive due to it being the John Smith Race meeting weekend. Bishopthorpe is a lovely village 3 miles...

I have stayed in a fair number of bed and breakfast establishments and this is easily the best. The room was beautifully decorated , extremely tranquil and spotlessly clean. The owners had put a lot of thought into what guests want these days and it was great to get a flask of real milk with the tea/coffee rather than those...
