Good Value Just Outside York

  • 4 of 5

Church View B and B is an easy bus ride from York, and also on the bus route to Whitby and other coastal towns. I booked a studio room which was large and would accommodate a family of four. Having a small food prep area with fridge, toaster, and microwave gave me flexibility for preparing food, and Lynne makes lovely breakfasts as well. There is a small convenience store within walking distance for papers, milk, basic goods, etc. and Tom who worked there was very friendly and helpful. Good value and friendly. Wifi, TV, tea and coffee supplies were included.

From the Owner

We have always lived in York but we knew someone that was selling this property in this much sort after village Stockton on the Forest is in the countryside yet just 4 mls from York it has easy access into the city approx 10 mins in car also a bus runs every 30 mins so it has been ideal for our children to get into York without a car. The village has lovely walks and the Forest Park Golf course is just behind the house As its on the East side of York it's easy to get to the East Coast There are lots of lovely country pubs in surrounding villages We bought the house and decided to do B&B and due to the popularity of it we thought it was a good idea to convert the outbuildings to holiday cottages we haven't looked back guests return Year after year
