Monday we drove to Whitby -misty across the moors but a fairly smooth drive. Spent the day with our cousin Paul and his wife Carol. It was raining and a bit chilly but the town is just as gorgeous as I remember. We took kids up to playground and walked around to whale bones and captain Cook statue. Went down to Magpie Cafe for enormous serve of haddock and chips, ...
... Green Park for a memorable pitstop at F & M thanks to Sue M and a delicious G&T float. Wandered around past Piccadilly Circus (Cool Brittania shop was fun) and into Coventry garden to buy funny t-shirts and have a quick paella. Eventually headed home with 2 very tired little boys. What a fabulous guide we had in Sue Moss. Then headed up to York on M1 - just had to follow the signs to "the ...
Ah, but we have to get it back and PC World don't deliver to boats . . .didn't think of that ! Thank goodness for taxis and our sturdy little trolley, it was soon safely delivered to its new home. And as with all technology the rest of the day was taken up getting it to work properly.
Next day saw us set off along the Leeds Liverpool canal, windlass in ...
... travel the M1 south to make the crossing so we're confident we'll hitch a lift. The problem is when we get to the port. We've been advised that if we're lucky and charming enough we may be able to hitch a ride over in someones car as a passenger (price is per car, not person). But when looking at paying for the ferry as a foot passenger the pre-booked online price was £50...I dread to think how ...
... at all the venues covered by the York Pass and work out a plan of attack for the next 2 days. There are places that I know I really want to see, so will prioritise them and then have a stand-by list, in case I have more time.
I hope to have an early night tonight too. BTW the bells are still chiming!!
Also, I want to wish my very special friend, Heather, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (It’s a special one this year!) We will have a good catch-up when I get home next week ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Warrens York
I am currently staying at Warrens Hotel in York and I am writing this
Relaxing, romantic break
Stayed at Warrens in York, booked a Four Poster room, arranged for a bottle of Champagne for arrival. We had a perfect weekend, possibly because I could leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere, most of the museums are within 10 minutes walk, restaurants and bars are closer.
Lovely room, lovely breakfast surprisingly they have a bar and serve evening meals and snacks, but they dont seem to advertise it, we ate there the day we arrived and it was good.
We really liked this place, bit of a find actually!
What a find! Friendly, clean, accommodating and competatively priced.
We were just there over the Easter holiday. The hosts are very nice and accommodating and clearly they have a lot of work to do running this place themselves with a little help from family. However, Warren's Guest House was a little disappointing in that it was located further away from the city center than we would like to be. It was more than a 15-20 minute walk and we're fast walkers. At night (before the time change) it was a little scary to be on the streets and no one around or an occasional homeless person. The B&B room was okay nothing fancy. The one thing that was a bit of a surprise was that they are very frugle with their soap. They gave us a sample (tiny!) size piece of soap to use for both the sink (which was in the room) and the shower. When I asked for more soap we only got one extra little bar. The next day we went to Marks & Spencer and got a proper bar of soap. Maybe they assume you bring your own. The traditional English breakfast was ordinary nothing to rave about. There were no little extras or choices like muffins, or brown toast instead of white or maybe offer potatoes instead of beans once in awhile. We will probably try another place that is closer. One plus was they are close to Melton's Restaurant, which is a place to go for that wonderful dinner you want to have - expensive however. We also went to Blue Bicycle again another fabulous restaurant. For lunch we went to Melton's, Too (a partner of Melton's) and it too was good but much more informal and perfect for lunch.
We didnt intend staying over in York as we only came over for a days shopping but dropped on this lovely B&B quite by accident.
The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and fresh, hosts very welcoming and the food was spot on. We will be back again, next time with more than a toilet bag for a longer stay.
Thank you for a wonderful night.
Loved the place!
We have had a wonderful short break at Warrens in York.
We booked a Four Poster room, arranged for champagne and choclates for our arrival and had a fantastic 3 nights.
Warrens is only a short walk from the City Centre some of the best restaurants are in the vicinity. The welcome was great, the ambienece was wonderful and we will be back at Christmas for another romantic break. Thank you!!
Good place for a family stay
We enjoyed our recent stay at the Warren's guesthouse. My family of 4 was very comfortable in their family room which had a double bed and 2 singles. The guesthouse was very convenient for walking into York city center. We would return to Warren's.
Simply the best
We had a beautiful stay. Warrens is decorated to the highest standard, there is an Oak panelled reception and lounge area, leading on to a large and bright conservatory where we ate breakfast. Our room was well appointed with four poster bed and views toward the Minster. We were very suprised at what we got for our money...we have paid a great deal more at other hotels and received a lot less for our money...we will be back!!
Warrens great place great welcome great breakfast
We stayed at the Warrens last year and had the best time ever. We booked for 2 days and stayed for 5 days. Beautiful Old City, ancient walls, quaint museums, very good restaurants...surprisingly for England. Warrens' rooms were large and comfortable, breakfast is served in a beautiful conservatory and the sitting room is wood pannelled. It is quieter than other most hotels this close to the city (5mins walk to the walls and museums) we paid £55 for our room and it was better than some places we have paid double that price. Richard and Jenny know all the City's history, and what they dont know Richard makes up. Simply wonderfull.
The warmest welcome
We have had a wonderfull time at Warrens in York. Our hosts Richard and Jenny were great. They told us the best places to visit in the few days we were there. Our room was the biggest we have stayed in in the UK...(most British Guest House rooms are much smaller than at home). We were recommended by friends who stayed last year, freshly cooked breakfasts, a car park and 5 minutes walking distance to the City Center. It felt like a home from home!
