A little piece of 'home from home' hospitality in the heart of York, The Fourposter Lodge is a beautiful Victorian villa which dates back to 1865 and retains plenty of charming period features. Wonderfully hosted by Shirley, the lodge has been in the same family for over thirty years and is close to both York University and the Barbican Centre. Relax and plan your daily activities in one of our lovely four poster guest rooms which are presented in-keeping with the Victorian ambience of the property. Families of up to four people can be accommodated and pets are also accepted by arrangement at an extra charge.
The attractions of the city centre can be found a ten minute walk away via Fishergate or Walmgate Bar. Enjoy a visit to the Castle Museum, the Shambles, Jorvik Viking Centre and the accommodation is ideal for couples, families and business visitors.
All of the gorgeous guest rooms have a four poster bed, a TV, radio, hair dryer, hospitality tray and Wi-Fi service.
