As well as being self-contained and with its own private ‘front door’, one of the nicest things about the B&B is that it has a separate eating area complete with fridge, micro-wave, kettle and toaster. And, of course, we make sure you’re stocked up with all the provisions you need for a hearty, continental-style breakfast.
The room has all the facilities you would expect to make your stay easy and enjoyable:
- Smart TV, with Netflix
- Hanging space and drawers for your clothes
- Off-street parking
- Outdoor eating area, and
- A very comfortable double bed.
As well as plenty of (Taylor’s of Harrogate) tea and coffee, we provide all the essentials to ensure you have a great breakfast.
The fridge is stocked with milk, fruit juice, butter and bottled water. There is Dorset Cereal muesli, fresh fruit and yoghurt, as well as a range of breads.
However, if you’d prefer a full English, the Fairfax Arms across the road would be happy to serve you. There are also lots of tearooms in neighbouring villages that serve a variety of hot meals.
Station House is Gilling East’s old railway station and entry to the B&B is via one of the two platforms.
The station dates from around the 1850s and was reputedly designed by the renowned architect GT Andrews – who was also responsible for York Station.
As well as the platforms, original features include a station clock which faces both inwards into the old Station Master’s office and outwards for public view. There’s an old parcel shed and a sign which tells passengers to use the bridge (now dismantled) when crossing the line.
There is lots of information about Gilling East station online at Disused Stations.
