“Location, location, location !!!”

We have just returned from a brilliant short stay in York. Mark, the owner waited for us despite arriving 2 hours late and turned a terrible day into a wonderful day !! The house was ideally situated right by York Minster and comfortably equipped.Although the weather was less than ideal ( indeed the River Ouse flooded its banks) we found plenty to do.The newly revamped art gallery was just 5 minutes away and we enjoyed Gr8 escape, an hour long challenge,good for teens and adults, also centrally based !! As some of our group were vegetarian we opted for tapas at Ambiente on the Sunday - again just a stones throw away in Goodrumgate.And the Sunday service at the cathedral was very inspiring.

“The best of Britain. A beautiful house in a stunning place.”

Forget airport security and flight delays. The experience of staying in this beautiful house just metres from York Minster makes you realise how special Britain can be. York is just stunning and the accommodation made our family get-together a real experience. Mark and Ann have a lovely property that you just cannot fault. We will be back.

Our weekend away was loved by all.

From start to finish the owners of this property were welcoming, responsive and friendly. I was even welcomed by Mark at the door who had just gone to make doubly sure the house was in good shape and to show me round. Mark & Ann seem to be a good team and can't be faulted!

The house was clean, tidy, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked, the dining room classy, the living room perfect and bathrooms all clean and modern.

The room myself and my fiancée stayed in was spacious and the bed comfy. There were no complaints from the others about theirs.

In terms of the basics of what you'd expect from a Georgian townhouse smack bang next to the Minster, it had everything. What particularly pleased me however was the extra mile Mark & Ann went to with the details and welcome - on the table coming in was a lovely chocolate cake that went down well, there was also a pint of milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine! Delightful.

To top it off they have Sky+ including sky sports & BT. They also have a PS3 with games (including a FIFA), a DVD player (including ALL SIX STAR WARS FILMS!!) and a Bluetooth Bose speaker to play music from your phone from. All got me very excited at least!!

We have all decided that we will come back to this place again - we would recommend to all that they did as well.

Thank you Mark and Ann - keep up the good work!

“A perfect house in a perfect location”

Despite being delayed in arriving, Mark waited so that he could show me around the house and to the location of the allocated parking space.
The house is very close to the Minster and all the tourist attractions. It is a lovely , comfortable, period house complete with modern bathrooms, wifi and blue tooth music system.
I can't imagine how the house could have been improved.

“Perfect location for young and old”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Mark and Ann couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful - and that was even before we arrived. We were given clear directions and even though we were running late, Mark was at the house to give us a quick tour and explain how everything worked. There was even a welcome basket with essentials. If we could, we would give them 6 stars for service!

The location was perfect for our visit - stepping out of the property to see the Minster was ideal as we had young, old and the walking wounded in our party! Being set over 4 floors wasn't a problem either.

The house was ideal; it was spotless with plenty of extras to make the stay amazing. The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed. And there were even plenty of games for the kids to use. It was a real home-from-home.

My concern before visiting was about noise with staying right in the centre of town. However, this was unfounded. The only sounds came from the Minster bells.

We will definitely be back to York and will want to stay here again.
