“Beautiful home for a family celebration”
Reviewed September 14, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

We booked the cookoo’s nest for a family birthday and had a wonderful time. The property is beautifully decorated and to a very high spec. We were made to feel welcome and Terry and Nikki were attentive to our needs and questions, including much appreciated birthday prosecco and good wishes.

“Fabulous house and service”
Reviewed August 23, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Just back from a long weekend staying at The Cookoos Nest in York. Nicky and Terry couldn't be nicer and help with everything, even putting our Tesco shop in cupboards and fridge!
The house is like a show home while being comfy and very spacious.
We loved every element of our stay.

“OUTSTANDING ACCOMMODATION !!”
Reviewed July 12, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Spent a weekend with friends at the Cuckoo's Nest. We arrived in York by train, it is a short 20 minute taxi ride from City Center. The owners kindly accepted our supermarket delivery the day before. Great for us to arrive with our wine chilled in the fridge. We had also made a request for a hot tub, which they kindly obliged to supply. Once again this had been warmed up and ready for our arrival. At the rear of the property there is a beautiful, secluded walled garden. The spotless property itself is jaw dropping! All finished off to an exemplary standard. On the Saturday evening we visited the friendly, Duke of York pub for fabulous food. It is basically a 2 minute walk away and well worth visiting. The owners Terry and Nikki, went above and beyond.

Thanks so much for the review Sam, you and the girls have won our award for the group who had the most laughter in ‘The Cuckoos Nest’. You were an absolute pleasure to host and left the property spotless. You made an evening in the pub the best one we have ever had. Never before have I had 8 backing singers at a Karaoke! We look forward to seeing you all in 2019. X

“HIDDEN GEM..... WHAT A FIND!!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Recently stayed at the Cuckoo's Nest..
May I first of all thank Terry & Nicky for ensuring we had EVERYTHING we needed for a great stay...

Beautiful property..
Great location with lovely farmshop nearby with great locally sourced produce, and a number of pubs doing good food a short distance in either direction.

York centre only short distance, so close to all local attractions..

Would highly recommend this property.
Was holding off as once secret is out; gonna be hard to get rebooked..

Thanks again Terry & Nicky.. great job

“A perfect place to visit York and the area , and stay in comfort”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The building which has been renovated to a vary high standard is situated just a few miles outside of York but very easy to locate , we used the park and ride ( just a few minutes drive away ) to get in York centre , saves hunting for parking . The property lacks nothing and the hosts Nikki and Terry were keen to find out if we had discovered any anomalies , we could not find any . A fabulous spacious property which will sleep 8 , we were six but it never felt crowded , indeed it was easy to separate when men and ladies required different viewing on the TV . We cooked sometimes but there is a good Pub with food in walking distance and many more withing a short drive , We will return .
