We want to come back next year and maybe try out your other property (if we could remember what it is called?) Any way thank you, would recommend this...

1st stay here and am already recommending to friends. Started with cream tea provided by the hosts and them sharing maps and hints for where to go and how to get the best from York. Appartement is luxuriously done with everything you could need. It's in a quiet private gated close but is 5 -10 mins walk from central York...
