  • Do you have vegetarian cooked breakfast available

    We have several cooked vegetarian options plus a vegan version of the Full English and also Eggs Florentine. We do porridge with either mango or Irish Cream and we can top toast with eggs, beans or mushrooms. All in all I'd say that non-meat eaters have more choice than meat eaters.

Host Information

Host review score 9.6

The Dairy Guest House is a lovingly restored and upgraded Victorian town house, retaining its character and original features, such as stained and etched glass windows, pitch pine doors and staircase, cast iron fire grates and wonderfully ornate ceiling roses and cornices. The Dairy is set around a flower-filled, smoke-free courtyard, with charming cottage styled rooms which offer warmth and welcome.

I initially trained as a primary school teacher and after 30 years living in London decided that the pull of family and the county of my birth was too strong to resist so I bought the Dairy in early 2014 and have spent the past several years gently peeling away layers of tired decoration to reveal the buildings original Victorian features.

The Dairy is located on the corner of Bishopthorpe Road, 'Bishy Road' to the locals was awarded best local High Street of the year 2015. We are a thriving community with cafes, shops and restaurants and just a 10 minute walk from the city centre.
