We recently stayed at the house with our grown up children and new grandchild for an early Christmas get together. From the start Roger made it very easy with the booking and accomdated our needs. We arrived to a lovely gift box and a beautiful warm house.
The house is a real home from home well equipped. Easy distance to town. We are looking at booking again.
We had an absolutely fantastic stay in this property.
The house it's self is beautiful with lovely comfortable beds and clean fluffy towels. The kitchen /dining room is a great space and very well equipped.
Location wise it's only a short walk to the city centre and we found it very convenient.
Thanks for having us Roger!!
We stayed here for a family birthday celebration and had a wonderful weekend. The kitchen/diner is beautiful and everything you could possibly need is already there. The rooms are great sizes and the beds are super comfy. It is such a short walk into the City giving you the opportunity to explore! I couldn't recommend this place more - we will definitely stay again. Thank you!
Wow! Such a lovely house. So homely and spacious. Really made our girlie weekend special. Everyone was so comfortable in them lovely beds. We literally didn't want to leave. The owner kept us up to date with everything and made us feel at ease that we could get in touch with any questions. I really will be definitely be returning to York soon as there's so much to do and see, and it will definitely be this house I will return to. Thank you so much.
Lovely property and well equipt with a lovely welcoming basket.
Could not fault anything and lovely soft towels provided for everyone.
With comfortable beds and bedding and lovely spacious rooms.
Parking for 2 cars was also good.
A short walk to York was fine.
Will certainly be visiting York again and
would come to this property again.
Grace and family.
After three nights in a Bath hotel, we welcomed a more relaxed atmosphere. The York house was exactly as advertised. Well maintained, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. I must admit, that at first we struggled with the AGA stove but after the first meal (travelling with 4 hungry teenagers, dining out was out of the question) we understood how it worked and we were fine. The kids quickly took over the living room and made it their own while the adults enjoyed a beer or glass of wine in the kitchen. As for York, wow! what a terrific, pedestrian friendly city. The sights were a marvel, the history intriguing and overall a terrific experience.
