A perfectly proper Victorian terraced house in the lovely suburb of Clifton, but Jonathan and Anthony, your very pleasant hosts, have filled it with all the things they’ve loved and bought on their extensive travels, mainly through the United States. Every picture and object tells a story which they’ll happily share. They also give you a grand breakfast, presided over by President Lincoln: sausages and bacon from the butcher down the road, eggs from a local farm, coffee roasted in York.
Upstairs you’ll find The President’s Lounge, a large and light room for relaxing comfortably and trying out over 30 British, American and Japanese gins from their Ginventory and perhaps a Yorkshire cheesemonger’s board – five Yorkshire cheeses. In bedrooms you’ll find good coffee machines, chocolate biscuits, some locally-made sweets and lots of ideas and maps for venturing out.
You’re a short walk from the centre of York, either by road or along the river – 15-20 minutes.
