80 East Parade
Ascot House | York
Ascot House is an attractive Victorian house built in 1869 where the Wood family have welcomed guests for over 25 years. The city centre is just a 15 minute stroll, or a short bus or taxi ride away, & we provide free, enclosed car parking to the rear of the house.
Free high speed internet access is available throughout the property and there is a dedicated customer computer and hard wired network connection in reception.
There is a spacious and comfortable residents lounge where you can relax, watch television or enjoy a drink from the "Butler's Pantry" courtesy of our residential licence. Tea and coffee are also served throughout the day in the lounge.
Delicious English and vegetarian award-winning breakfasts are served to you in our attractive dining room. Continental options are also available from our buffet with generous portions to start your day.
Ascot House is next to public gardens where during the summer you can watch the old English game of bowls. There is a nearby pub offering good food and also within walking distance are an excellent range of restaurants we can personally recommend to suit all palates and pockets, as well as theatres and wine bars. There are a variety of different events happening all year round.
Should you wish to see a little more of Yorkshire, the Dales to the west, the Moors to the north or our beautiful Yorkshire coast are each an hour's drive away.
June and Keith Wood, resident proprietors, have a lifetime's knowledge and love of York and together with Rob and Shona their son and daughter, are available to help you plan your day should you require it.
At Ascot house we have twelve bedrooms. Room amenities include:
Free high speed WIFI
Complimentary tea and coffee making facilities
On the ground floor there are two comfortable rooms, a twin room with a shower and toilet, and a double with bath, shower and toilet. These rooms are especially useful for guests who do not wish to climb stairs. The rooms do not qualify as 'suitable for the disabled' as access to the front of Ascot House is up a few steps although we do have a wheelchair ramp.
Climbing the beautiful pitch pine staircase, the half-landing boasts an extremely rare and unusual curved stained oriel window. On a sunny day a cascade of colours will light up the stairs to the first floor where you will find six bedrooms. All bedrooms on the first floor have four-poster or canopy beds, three of them are superior rooms and one a family.
A further staircase leads to the top floor where we have two doubles and two family rooms.
In total we have five doubles, three superior doubles, one twin, and three family bedrooms, all have en-suite showers and two also have baths.
