“Perfect location”
Reviewed November 30, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great house, so close to the city. The house has everything you could possibly need. The wood burning stove was delightful. The parking permit provided saves a small fortune on parking!

Pleased everything was ok. As traffic is a problem in York we supply a permit to relieve guests of the headache of finding somewhere to park.

“Charming Characterful Cottage”
Reviewed November 14, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This welcoming cottage is everything you could hope for. We can only reiterate the previous good comments. We loved our stay and would certainly book the cottage again should we return to York.

“Lovely house with homely feel minutes away from city centre”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Mary was a perfect hostess fresh milk and homemade brownies on our arrival. Key collection very easy great to park the car outside and be able to walk to any of the many sights of York. We used it as a base for a family wedding like a home from home very comfortable and enough space for 6 adults

“Location Location”
Reviewed July 9, 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 June 25, 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 June 22, 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.
