“Location Location”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The location was excellent. We enjoyed not having to drive the car. Mary provided us with a parking permit allowing us to park outside the house. great to have access to a washing machine too.We enjoyed having a living room to sit in as well. The stairs were a real death trap, very steep and narrow.

Glad you found the location convenient and enjoyed your stay in York. In this country steep staircases are commonplace in houses of this age and type. They are safe if you take care and use the handrail.

“Just what we wanted for a busy AND relaxing few days with the family”
Reviewed 25 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great little house in this great little city. Very convenient yet quiet location. You do not need a car to stay here and enjoy York. But parking is no problem if you do bring a car.
The house is very homely with lots of nooks and crannies and bits and bobs. Many holiday homes are a bit bare - not this one. It feels much loved. Beds and sofas are all comfy. Great to have 2 showers and both were excellent. Lots of big fluffy towels provided. Plenty of room and equipment for 4 of us. Mary was very welcoming and made us a lovely cake on our arrival even though we were only staying a few days.
There is so much to do and see in York it is great to be out and about but also great to stay in and relax at Waverley St with lots of games to play and books to read. The backyard is a perfect little flowery bower in the mornings when the sun shines. You can hear the Minster bells and not a lot else. Bliss.

“Quirky little house, full of charm in a convenient location.”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a lovely holiday in York. Picked up the key from Mary, who showed us round and had made some cakes for us. Explained the parking situation and how everything worked. Easy to walk into York so we didn't need the car so much, as there so much to do in the city. There were plenty of books to read and jigsaws to do in the evening.

“Great location, and great host!”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a fabulous trip to York - the house was small, but cosy and well maintained, and just perfect for our needs. Mary was a great host, and thoughtfully left cakes for us on arrival! Location couldn't be better, with just a 5 minute walk into the centre, and to Sainsbury's. We had a very comfortsble stay and we would certainly go back again! A word of warning- the stairs are a bit steep, and may be a concern for those with toddlers. Having said that, we had a five year old and a two year old, and they managed fine with a bit of supervision.

“Excellent house, just five minutes from York Minster”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a fantastic weekend in this house and intend to stay here again many times.

The house is very cozy and has lots of character. It is in a fantastic location just five minutes walk from York minster. All the rooms are large and all the beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed spending evenings in the living room in front of the wood burning fireplace. Mary is very friendly and helpful and I would recommend staying here to anyone.

I stayed with a small family group over the weekend. The accommodation was exactly what we were after- central location, clean and cosy. The owner couldn't have been friendlier. I would definitely recommend this property.
