This little hidden gem is just outside the walls of the old city of York, yet is walking distance to all the historic sites and to the train station. The building is a quaint old house. Our room was clean, comfortable, and exquisitely decorated. The full English breakfast was delicious. The hostess and host were helpful with advice, accommodating and kind!
