About this location
The Yorkshire region
Yorkshire, the largest and most diverse county in England. Not without justification do Yorkshiremen call their county 'God's own country'. From the stunning countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with it's rolling hills and valleys studded with beautiful villages and old market towns to the historic North Yorkshire coast with it's famous resorts of Whitby, Scarborough and Filey and the wild North York Moors, Yorkshire is packed with ancient castles, ruined abbeys and majestic stately homes of the aristocracy. No other county can match it for it's beauty and heritage.
York, the jewel in Yorkshire's crown, voted England's Favourite City, European tourism City of the Year. There is always something going on to surprise and delight the visitor.This beautiful old walled city has over 2000 years of history. York has been important to many invaders. Roman Fortress [Eboracum], home during the Roman occupation to the legendary Ninth Hispana and Sixth Victrix legions, Roman Emperors were acclaimed and died in this city. Viking Capital, [Jorvik], Viking Kings ruled from here. Norman stronghold, William The Conqueror fortified the city to subdue the rebellious North after the invasion of 1066. King George VI said 'The history of York is the history of England'.
The city is alive with history with every twist and turn of its narrow streets, York Minster, the ancient 'Shambles', Cliffords Tower, Merchant Adventurers Hall, Kings Manor, Treasurers House, Yorvik Viking Centre, the list goes on. World class horse racing,superb museums [the Yorkshire Museum, Castle Museum and National Railway Museum], old haunted Inns and pubs, year round festivals, street entertainers, ghost walks, riverboat trips, lively bars, cosy bistros all combine together to make York the city to visit whatever the season. York, a city where an ancient past feeds a vibrant present.

"Early family christmas"
Foss Haven was able to accommodate 8 members of my family comfortably. It was an easy walk into the centre of town. The kitchen was well equipped. The position by the river would be nice in summer. I … More

"Lovely riverside view- Home to Home!"
We have just come back from our stay at Foss Haven, there was 8 friends in total and this house suited us perfectly. Plenty of space with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It offered us the chance to cook in one night and being just a short walking distance from the centre of town-easy to get out and about. We enjoyed sitting in the garden which backs onto the river/lock and castle-beautiful spot.
I had a few queries, such as parking a 2nd car (which we managed to park on the paved area) which holiday lettings were very good at getting back in touch with me. Would definetly stay here again when visiting York.

"LOVELY HOUSE FANTASTIC LOCATION"
Stayed at Foss haven over the new year with family 6 adults 2 children, What a great little house, looks small from the front but a good size inside having 3 doubles 1 being en-suite and 2 single rooms with 1 family bathroom.
it was really good didn't use the cars nearly all week except when we went for a visit to Creepy Crawlies children's center........The location of this house is great for walking in to York which is about 5 minutes into the center with all its great Restaurants shops and bars.
Also recommend York's Ghost walk, what a good laugh only £5 for 1.5 hours.
Will be defiantly be coming back to either this house or one of the others that are for hire
