First the positives..the owner was very friendly and accomodating.it was very easy to park up in the street and leave the car for the duration of the stay as parking permits were provided..the house is close to city centre too..it was very nice and warm and the log fire was a lovely bonus..the beds were clean and comfy and towels provided..the owner also left a welcome cake for all the guests,
the negatives...the interior was more shabby than chic..basically it needed a jolly good clean and declutter..when we arrived we had to clean all the mugs..which were badly stained with coffee and tea..this was easily achieved in the dishwasher..
the bathrooms were grimy..around the taps and tiles,, easily cleaned by bleach.
the attic bathroom was especially bad..the floor was disgusting, with black grime in the corners.
there was a motley collection of empty jars on shelving in the kitchen and dusty dried flower arrangements in the bedroom..the house would be nightmare for anyone suffering from allergies or asthma.
There were various mock furry rugs in the bedrooms,, which were dirty..and a large rug in the lounge which we rolled up and pushed under the couch, as it was so questionable.
when we pulled out a trio of clear plastic side tables in the lounge, they were so dirty we had to clean them before using them..
on a plus side the house could be amazing if it were updated and properly cleaned and decluttered.
5 of us booked this last minute. We loved the look of the house and we were not dissapointed when we arrived. Every room is immaculate and the decor made it feel cosy and homely. Loved every minute, we wish we had booked a longer stay. Will definitely be returning
Location is perfect, walking distance to everywhere interested in York.
Amenities are well arranged and included, nothing is shorted.
Only thing is the staircase is a bit steep, don't bring elderly travelers here.
Great if you need three double bedrooms. Well priced for an excellent level of comfort. It was well heated and also had a woodburning stove. Need to be fit for the precipitous stairs though. Very friendly and helpful owners who came to the rescue when our taxi did not arrive (not too far to walk but we had lot of luggage). Quiet location for a property this close to the centre.

A super little house with plenty room for me and two girlfriends. I especially liked the ease of access to the town, the wood burning stove and supply of games, and most of all the kindness of the hosts who helped us at short notice when a local taxi firm (getaway cabs) let us down. Thank you!!
