This is a semi-detached, standard two up two down on a quiet street on the outskirts of York and only 25 mins. walk to the heart of the city and it's only 0.5 mile away from the very popular Bishopthorpe Road! Very light, interesting, quirky decor.

The space

Upstairs: The house is being let as a one bedroom (the other is closed for storage). So one double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe. One bathroom with bath and shower.

Downstairs: Large living room/kitchen spreads across the whole floor. One bathroom (WC and sink only). Sofa can fold down to comfortable double bed. Wi-Fi Internet access, TV and DVD player with some selection of DVDs. Kitchen has gas hob, kettle, toaster, full oven and grill and even a smoothie maker ☺ . Washing machine. NO dishwasher. There is a breakfast bar AND dining table. There is also gas fireplace for chilly evenings!

Outside: potted beds to front and side path. Rear paced garden/yard. Wooden bench and tables, chairs, furniture-great for meals in summer. Sunny all day (well, when there's sun, it's Yorkshire!).

Bed linen and towels and daily essentials are provided.

Guest access

The whole house & the garden, apart from one locked bedroom, is included for the duration of your stay. Not the sheds (obviously – even the wife of the house is not allowed ☺)

Interaction with guests

The host might be away occasionally during your stay but there will always be someone nearby who will let you in and be your contact if needed during your stay.

This is a nice house in a good neighbourhood in York. Decently close to the centre of town and the amazing things to see there. However, there are a couple things which weren't clear in the rental advert that is worth knowing. 1. If there are 4 guests, expect two of them to sleep in the living room on a couch. It's a pull out couch. 2. Be sure to mention what 'essentials' you expect to be there, as the house wasn't equipped for 4 people to stay in when we were there. Other than these two things I would recommend staying here for a short visit to York.

A good experience, very nice house with lots of character, nice neighbourhood. Umay was helpful providing information in advance of our stay. The information on the website said it had 4 bed's including a sofa bed for 2 people, however it was quite small and only really fit one person on it, otherwise a great stay.
