About us

No. 21 York Bed & Breakfast (B&B) Guest House Accommodation offers a choice of nine clean & comfortable rooms, a warm and homely welcome as well as a great Yorkshire Breakfast - all within a stones throw of York City Centre.

Built circa 1890 the B&B is a Victorian Terrace that has a history of offering accommodation and breakfast to guests since 1966 when Mrs. B opened her home to travellers to the city, we will continue in this tradition of offering homely hospitality in some of the finest bed and breakfast accommodation in York.

Recently acquired & refurbished, part of our ethos is that we support our local partners sourcing all of our produce & services - wherever possible - from within a 20 mile radius of York which includes all of the trades and materials used in the refurbishment.

Just a short stroll along Marygate Lane to the Museum Gardens & you are in the heart of York, with York Minster to your left & the City Centre directly ahead of you. A huge variety of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, bars & attractions are at your feet. The River Ouse is a two minute stroll away and offers great walks, jogging & cycling routes right outside the front door. In addition the countryside of North Yorkshire is on your doorstep, explore the Moors, Dales & Wolds or venture a little further to discover North Yorkshire's amazing coastline.

We offer a fully non-smoking property with en-suite shower room accommodation in all but one of our rooms - this has a private shower room available - LED Smart TV's with Freeview, alarm clock radios with docking station, complimentary Wifi access throughout the property, tea & coffee facilities with home-made biscuits & Taylor's of York Teas & Coffees, Harrogate Spa mineral waters, hair dryers, irons & boards and free off-road parking to the rear of the building. A lock-up bike shed is also available for guests travelling by - or wishing to bring your - bike.

Breakfast is sourced locally with Bacon, Eggs, Sausages & Black Pudding all coming from The Farmers Cart just outside of York. Jams & Marmalades are from Bracken Hill Farm at Elvington. Our yoghurts are supplied by St. Helen's Farm at Seaton Ross, the breads are home-made & with flour from the Windmill in Acomb, as are the pancakes. Fruits, Vegetables, Juices & Yoghurts are sourced from Millies on Bishopthorpe Road in York. As with the rooms our Teas & Coffees are supplied by Taylor's of Harrogate.

We are also proud to be working with the Blueberry Academy - - who help us with our garden & planting. The Blueberry Academy team provide specialist support for adults with learning difficulties, developing highly innovative curriculum and services. The Blueberry Academy are at the forefront of employability and have a proven track record in developing other organisations to introduce new practice and to raise the standards of employability training.

The images used are from our friends and fellow members of the York Camera Club - - as well as a few of our own impressions of York & the surrounds. Details of the photographer will be supplied along with each image.
