Townhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Though the house is less than five minutes' walk from the city centre, it has the feel of a country cottage. The front door leads directly into the living room which is bright and comfortable with a wood-burning stove, two sofas and a dining table. There is also a flat screen television (freeview) and free internet connection. This leads to a well-equipped kitchen and then to a small utility area with washing machine. Beyond this is a newly-fitted bathroom and access to an attractive patio area with pots of flowers, metal table, chairs and bench.
Quite steep stairs (not suitable, I'm afraid, for people with mobility problems) lead to the first and second storeys. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one of which is a generous size and has the original fireplace. The second flight of stairs leads to the beamed attic bedroom which runs the depth of the house. York Minster can be seen from one of the windows. Off it is an ensuite room comprising a toilet, sink and shower.
There is a travel cot available for babies or toddlers.j
The house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and there is free parking (with permits which we lend). It is an ideal base for those who like to be close to the city centre and within easy walking distance of its attractions, who appreciate traditional buildings and who enjoy a house which is quirky, comfortable and also set at a realistic price. There is a 10% reduction for a single couple occupancy for weekends and full weeks.

About this location
The Yorkshire region
York is surrounded by magnificent countryside and interesting towns and villages all within an easy drive; many are also accessible by public transport.
From York you can enjoy a day out to the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, the Wolds or attractive seaside resorts like Scarborough and Whitby.
York has many heritage sites and museums including the famous Jorvik Centre and the Castle Museum. It has played a central role in English history and this is reflected in the ancient streets and many historic buildings of which the most famous is the Minster itself.
It is the home of the Railway Museum with its fascinating engines and carriages. It is also an excellent place to shop and to eat and drink and be entertained. There are a series of specialist festivals throughout the year.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We were pleased you found the house well located, warm and comfortable. However, we were disappointed to read your criticisms as it is the first time we have had such comments, or any complaints about the standard of cleanliness. We will certainly investigate what you say. Incidentally the "mock furry rugs" are actually 100% wool flokatis from John Lewis.
I'm sorry that you found the house not to your taste. The style is not intended to be minimalist or corporate (there are other places in York for that). It is meant to be cosy and homely, which most of our visitors want and appreciate.
