“Peaceful, clean, and exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our family of four stayed here for two weeks. Good location; it was walking distance to the sites of York. Very quiet with a nice view of the river. TV and Wi-Fi were easy to use. It had a nice outdoor seating area with a grill and a well-equipped kitchen. Spacious, perfectly clean, and owners who communicate well and are very fair.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Loved the townhouse. Plenty of room for our family consisting of hubby and self, daughter and her hubby, plus grown grandson.

Visitors from Australia and North America, please note. Clothes dryer has a different meaning in England. It isn't that white box beside your washing machine. It's that line with the clothes pins outside. We got a chuckle out of it. The 'youngsters' learned something new.

Had a little trouble finding the short cut to town at first, but sure enough, there it was tucked into the back right side of carpark. Loved exploring the city, or just going to end of garden and watching the river.

The beds were comfortable, the bathroom nice and clean.

Thanks for making our stay so pleasant.

“Absolutely lovely, couldn't have asked for a better house to stay in.”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time staying in Riversmead, it was lovely and clean, everything in perfect working order and had all we could have needed for a short break. The wine and provisions that were left for us were a wonderful surprise and and much appreciated. The house is very handy for town, even with a buggy and a walking 4 year old it only took 15 minutes to walk into the centre of York along the main road and only 30 minutes along the river to the Train Museum. We cant recommend this holiday rental highly enough.
