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.

This is a lovely house and I would definately recommend it to anyone. The decoration and furnishings were tasteful, fully functioning and the house was very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was a great shower. Although we were in York in Feb it was quite cosy. The location was ideal - even my 5 year old could easily walk into the attractions of central York. The only slight problem is that it is impossible to fully open the dishwasher due to its location and so not much use. This just needs to be swopped with the washing machine.

This little house made a lovely base for a 4 day stay in York. It was great to have the garden to sit in in the evenings, and there was everything you needed to enjoy your stay. The car was able to say at home as the walkinto the city is very short. We discovered very easy supermarkets a short drive round the ring road - even within walking distance - just follow the walls.
