Just back from a 3 night stay at The Willows B&B. We had a lovely stay and found it to be very clean and had a smashing cooked breakfast each morning. Paul is a great host and provides loads of local info for those new to the area like us. The only minor niggle was the shower which you had...

Paul & his wife Cath were fantastic. Room was lovely and cosy with a bright and airy feel. Bathroom was light bright and clean with an amazing power shower. Breakfast was spit on with the eggs cooked to perfection. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Good room and facilities. Excellent breakfast too despite layout being a bit unconventional. It is well located for people to use the P&R service into York. Only real improvement we would suggest is for some more obvious lighting / signing on the a-road, as we found it tricky to spot the entrance at night.
