Super clean, great location, and great value. Carol and Lenny really have put in the extra effort with the interior design, and it shows!

An absolutely beautiful house; immaculately clean, extremely well-equipped and ideally located to make the most of all York has to offer. With two young children, we particularly liked that everything was within walking distance, with the park (which has a very good play area, duck pond and cafe) and city walls pretty much on the doorstep. Carol & Lenny couldn't have been more welcoming and communication was excellent from booking to checkout. Thanks again for a really lovely stay.

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property. It's in a lovely part of York with plenty of great cafes and bars and it's only a 20 minute walk to the city centre. The house was very clean with everything we needed!

Lovely weekend at The Potting Shed. As soon as you walk in you understand why all the reviews are so good. Carol was fantastic at communicating with almost instant replies. We would definitely come back next time in York.

The Potting Shed Cottage was the perfect accommodation for my husband and I, along with our son and his wife and their two little girls! It is a lovely and charming spot to come home to after a day of taking in the beauty of York and all it has to offer. Carol and Lenny are gracious hosts, providing welcome little touches, such as the lovely welcome basket of biscuits and wine. I would love to be able to stay here again!
