Welcome to Burnley House – Guest House on the North York Moors

Standing Stone RosedaleWelcome to our house, situated 40 miles to the North of York on the North York Moors were we serve award winning breakfasts that will sustain you for your visits to market towns like Pickering, Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside, the city of York, the coast, and of course, the moors. All our rooms have wifi and in two of them (Ryedale and Newtondale) we allow pets.

After the grind of doing a weeks work, Burnley House is the ideal place to unwind and relax. As soon as you arrive you are made welcome with a refreshing cup of tea or coffee and a little something to nibble on. In this 7 bedroomed guest house we are small enough to be able to make every guest welcome and yet give you the service you’d expect of somewhere much more expensive. Once you are shown to your room and told about the extra touches we have put in there for you, you are left to freshen up. Why not have a wander around the village and look at the stream and the sheep that roam freely, enjoying the lush grass on the village greens.
