“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This flat is exactly as it looks on the photos- clean and bright, warm and welcoming. The housekeeper gives an excellent welcome. It was quite hard to find- the estate is windy and the numbering is confusing, although this is not the rental's fault! A map of the estate with clear directions would have been useful with the flat info. The info pack was very clear and sent out in plenty of time. We decided that with three generations it was too far for us to walk into town, but it wouldn't be if the weather was good and you had no one school age or retired in your party.

Thanks for the feedback. We have added a map to the arrival instructions, which should help to make it clear where the flat is situated.

“Fabulous flat, highly recommend”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We are a family of 4, and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of this flat! It was just a short walk into town and that's with kids! It was great to return to a cosy place to relax after a busy day. We would highly recommend anyone stay here!!!

“A great place to stay”

person found this review helpful

This is a lovely flat. Very well appointed, really comfortable and with great facilities. Amazingly quiet, as it is set back from the nearest main road. Very easy walking distance (10-15 min depending on your walking pace) from the centre of York. Key pick up and hand back was simple and well organised, pretty much to our convenience. We had a superb break and have no hesitation in recommending this to others. We fully intend to be back!

There is in fact a hairdryer in the flat, so there's no need to bring one! It's in the top drawer of the bed-side unit nearest to the en suite.
