Reviewed 3 September 2013

Stayed here with friends for another friends wedding at Drax, room was really nice and super comfortable.

Breakfast was lovely too.

Slightly dizzy but lovely old lady in charge, but speaking honestly she was definitely part of what made the visit very special!

Stayed one night in July to be close to York (20 mins drive to Park&Ride). Nice B&B in a centre of rural village location, but set in its own grounds. We had a large attic room, full of character, with good, modern shower/bathroom. Wifi, TV all worked well. Wanted an earlier, light breakfast which they happily provided. One bonus is the easy, secure parking in this type of location (compared with a town B&B in York itself). We had meal in nearby pub, but a list is provided of other options to eat out in the area. Good stopover for York region. Beware! Mobile speed cameras v active in the area and throughout Yorks (we came across 4 in a week in Yorkshire).

this is a lovely old building and we were booked in for 2 nights. now for the but, we only stayed 1 night and then checked out and went elsewhere. when we arrived, at about 6 pm, we went to our room opened the door, the room hadn't been made up from the night before. went down to complain and the second they tried had also not been made up. we agreed to take a bath and the room would be made up while we were out. there was very little hot water so we had a cool bath.

Room Tip: try elsewhere

Booked into the Old Vicarage through Late Rooms.com so was a little worried in case it didn't meet with the pictures on the website. I shouldn't have worried. It was excellent and the location was just right as we were attending a family birthday party at another hotel in Telford. The owners were very welcoming and even booked our taxi to take us to the party!
I booked two rooms and both were really lovely. Clean and well maintained with tea/coffe making facilites. The room even had it's own mini fridge and microwave!!!
We would definately visit the Old Vicarage again and use it as a base to explore the outlining areas.

The decor was very dated! My bathroom was slightly dirty and there was fluff on the bed!
Breakfast was not to my taste & didn't start till 9.15 - quite late!
The price wasn't justified atoll!
Over all - disappointing

Stayed here for my birthday weekend. Well situated for York (20 minutes drive - but use park and ride). Do not be put off by the many cooling towers nearby, once you are in village it is a lovely setting and none are visible. The property are grounds are lovely - I felt like I was in Jane Austen novel. However, all the "little extras" were missing.

Only a few sachets of tea and coffee. No hot chocolate, herbal teas, real milk, biscuits. Two very small shower gels, but no other toiletries. Only the bare minimum of quite small towels.

The breakfast was satisfactory, but nothing like some we have had in other B and Bs for similar prices. The menus for information for neighbouring restaurants are well out of date.

Notwithstanding the above, we had a lovely time in York and the owner was very welcoming. I would describe the accommodation as satisfactory, but somewhat lacking for any sort of special occasion.

Room Tip: Ask to overlook the garden.

Booked into the Old Vicarage so we could attend a friends birthday celebration in nearby Pontefract. Lovely and quiet location, very well looked after accomodation, butiful view over the 'walled garden' we were woken by birdsong both mornings. Nice cooked breakfast served by very friendly staff, would recomend this place to anyone looking for a quiet time to themselves. Only drawback is the lack of choice of places for dinner / evening meals, a car becomes essential unfortunately.
