Guests are welcomed with a hamper which includes local produce for a continental style breakfast. The owners have lived in York for over 30 years and are full of useful information about York and North Yorkshire.

Great host

  • 5 of 5

Jane did the best job of having all the necessities a traveler could need. She was also great at providing helpful information before and during our stay.

A great place to stay in York (near the racecourse)

  • 5 of 5

Property is very well organised with everything you could need plus a very attentive and helpful landlady. The location is great with easy access into York but equally easy to find and arrive at from the Leeds direction

Lovely little place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Jane on arrival who showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed, and we're even welcomed with a litlle hamper to get us going, including juice and milk, allowing us to quickly settle in. No issues during the stay and we were left to our own devices during the stay. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect stay for first visit to York.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Jane, for a wonderful stay in York. This was our first visit, and it was very easy to catch the bus to all the sights nearby. The rental was very clean, and had everything we needed to make some meals in. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we're ever fortunate to come back.

Lovely little house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay when visiting York.

Only a short walk or bus journey into the city.

The house has everything you'd need for a break away, even has little things you didn't think you'd need from boardgames in the press and plenty of books.

Overall we'd have to highly recommend this house and we'll definitely be back

We will definitely return

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was brilliant. Jane herself was welcoming and provided everything we could think of in the cottage. From the book and games, to hand cream, washing up liquid, orange juice, milk and bread, we wanted for nothing.

The cottage was spotlessly clean. The bed linen and towel were better than expected quality. The quality of the fixtures and fittings is well above standard.

The touch a Bluetooth speaker, washer dryer, Netflix TV and Easter treats was excellent.

The leaflets and files of information about York were especially helpful.

The location of the cottage was a 20 minute walk into the city and two minutes from the main roads leading out the city to other destinations.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
