Why James Rhodes chose York

The wonderful views, close enough to local towns and villages but far enough away to be quiet and rural.

What makes this house unique

Walks, cycling, water activities, space, quietness.

Very well equipped; beautifully presented. Owner James really helpful and friendly. We all loved using the canoe and kayak on the canal adults and kids and James and his dad David were amazing keeping the wood-fired hot tub heated and clean. Local attractions are good. Visited Beningbrough Hall and Jubilee Park.

Absolutely lovely house! Beautiful views from the garden. Hot tub a bonus!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just fantastic! It is spacious and well equipped, ideal for the ten of us on my hen do. James (the owner) was friendly and helpful, coming to set the hot tub up for us. Highly recommend a stay here. Rural enough to enjoy the peace and quiet, yet close enough to the city to enjoy the shopping and nightlife. Will definitely visit here again.

What a fantastic family weekend we have just spent at this amazing house in such a beautiful setting. It exceeded all our expectations and was just perfect.

James and his family were very friendly throughout and nothing was too much trouble.

We look forward to a return visit.

A really great house! This was more like a home with fabulous touches e.g. swipe lighting under the mirrors. The two wings of bedrooms were perfect for our three generations of family, no children disturbed the others during the night!
