From start to finish our stay at Platform 1 was just what we needed. It provided the the ideal base for us to enjoy a relaxed few days away. Anne the owner was a pleasure to deal with for the booking and once there have us a couple of good pointers of where to go.
The apartment itself was clean and well maintained and the welcome basket on arrival was a nice touch. It is very close to the railway (not surprising given its previous use!) But the passing trains do not interrupt things on the whole and there are no trains at night so sleeping is fine.
We took our dachshund with us and he liked it us much as we did, there are a number of footpaths close by which are great for walks as well as the private gardens. The apartment comes with plenty of dog towels and blankets to use if required.
To sum up we had a great time here and would happily book again.
Lovely apartment perfect for all our needs
Lovely walks nearby our 2 dogs had a wonderful time and made full use of wildlife garden
First class accommodation in a beautiful setting.
Our airedale terrier was also made very welcome, he had a lovely, large enclosed wildlife garden to play in and great walks on the doorstep.
There were welcome treats for our dog as well as ourselves.
I recommend Castle Howard Station, Platform 1 without reservation.
Always so peaceful staying here. In addition to being wonderfully located for the Moors, seaside and city of York, just being in the accommodation is heavenly, with woods and gardens to roam. Anne, the owner, is so generous, with her time and tips. Dog-friendly, child-friendly, getting-away-from-it-all-friendly. Just gorgeous.
We loved our stay at platform 1; picturesque surroundings and decorated beautifully. The accommodation is comfortable, well equipped and dog friendly.
Anne and Edmond couldn't have done more to make our family and puppy feel very welcome; the complimentary treats were very much appreciated.
Thanks for a lovely stay.
Great spot for a short break. Anne made us very welcome. The welcome pack was excellent and the cottage has everything you need. We will certainly return.
We felt very welcome here. Everything is carefully thought out and maintained to the highest standard. Occasional trains rumble past, momentarily disturbing the glorious birdsong, otherwise the 'real' world seems far away.
