“Great city centre rental”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here with extended family including 5 adults and 2 young children. We had a lovely time and it had pretty much everything you could need, including stair gates and night lights, books and toys, very child friendly. Janet couldn't have been more helpful, responding to text messages and emails very quickly, especially when we couldn't work the garage remote, dropping a new one into us when we thought it was faulty (it turned out it was operator error and we should have been pressing the bottom of the big button).

There was a bit of road noise but it is right in York centre so it was expected.

Parking is approximately £10 per day in public car parks in York so having parking for 2 cars at the property was a massive bonus.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Dear Helen. Thank you for your lovely review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. There was more noise than usual when you stayed as the local university had just started back and it was Freshers week, some of whom were in high spirits!! This has all settled down again now that the reality of 'studying' has hit home.

“Amazing house”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I stayed here with 2 service users and another staff member, for a 3 day break. it is very close to all amenities, this was the first time any of us had been to York so staying somewhere so close was really good. We felt so at home here and when we arrived there was milk in the fridge, teabags and coffee already there and a packet of biscuits. Janet seemed to have thought of everything for us to enjoy our stay, and even though we really didnt spend much time in the house it was really comfortable.
Will hopefully stay again here but next time not a working holiday maybe a girly weekend instead.

“Amazing house for large group. Location perfect”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house is amazing for the price when spread among the 9 people it accommodates!! Excellent location, literally 5 minutes to centre. Fully equipped kitchen, with the welcome tray with fresh milk much appreciated. Lovely and clean, and even enjoyed the sunshine in the back yard and terrace. Would definitely return, had a really great time with friends.

“Excellent - definitely be back!”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Perfect house for a family reunion - plenty of space and well thought-out facilities - everything you need to keep everyone happy.
The owners obviously put a lot of effort into making the stay as enjoyable and convenient as possible ... makes travelling with kids (and big kids ;) ) a lot easier so you can get more out of your holiday.
The central location and off-road parking are second to none ... drive in, park up, enjoy the secluded garden or step out into the city centre for sightseeing, shopping, pubs and takeaways.
We'll definitely be back ... no point looking elsewhere.

Fantastic location, beautiful house, comfortable and clean!
We visited as a group of 8 women on a (grown up) hen doo. The house was perfect for our needs with plenty space, comfy beds, fully fitted kitchen, outdoor space and comfy sofas. Lots of towels provided and board games/ DVDs if needed. 5mins walk from the bustling city centre so no need to waste cash on taxis once you have found your bearings.
Would definitely stay again!
Also great communication from Janet, thank you so much.
