I stayed here with a friend last summer, and it was amazing! Perfectly situated in a village, but with easy access to York city centre by bus or car.
The accommodation is really lovely - very clean and decorated beautifully. It's really cosy but doesn't feel cramped - this is helped by the extra space downstairs for storage of coats and shoes.
The bathroom and kitchenette are great. We managed to cook a really nice meal one evening. The only thing I'd change in the entire flat is to add some kind of ledge to place bottles on in the shower (however, this may have been updated since our stay!)
The owner, Sara, is really lovely. Upon booking, she sent us a huge email full of information about the area, and when I asked her if she knew of anywhere I could eat with my dietary requirements, she was really helpful, sending me lots of suggestions.There was also a selection of goodies left out for us on our arrival!
I'll definitely be staying here again. Hopefully soon!
WOW! We both knew after the informative email from Sara that we would love it.
The Annex far exceeded the photos provided on the website. It was beautiful, spotless clean and with a lovely fresh feel. Every detail honed to perfection and so much thought put into the appearance and the whole lay out of The Annex.
Sara was lovely and friendly and on hand for anything needed.
Brilliant area for a 'country, out of town feel' but close enough for the local bus service and amenities.
Would we visit again? YES, for sure we would. Amazing value for money, fabulous host and more than happy to recommend to all our friends.
Thank you SO much
My wife and I stayed at the annex with our 2 year old son for a weekend in early November.
From the offset Sara was very helpful providing us with local info prior to our visit. The annex is brand spanking new with great features ideal for a small family or group. Small things are thought of and provided for the stay including Netflix, toys for children, tea and coffee even ketchup and vinegar.
The annex is around a 20 min drive from York city centre which is ideal if you want to go sight seeing. It's also a short drive to York designer outlet. There are some lovely local walks and farm shops that are walking distance.
I would highly recommend the annex and would definitely stay again. Sara is a great host and above all the place is of very high standard.
