The Old Forge is a tranquil detached house with a garden in the centre of South Bank, in a well-hidden street. I promise you'll get a really quiet night's sleep!

It's 10 minutes from the race course or the trendy Bishy Road high street, or 20 minutes from the station and centre of York.

It's perfect for a family break, sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms (1 double, 1 bunk). The conservatory and garden are south facing, great for summer nights with friends or family. You can even bring your dogs!

The space

The kitchen & lounge space is a great family area, with a 32" TV, sofa & comfortable arm chair, and French windows lighting the room up.

For sunny weather, there's a bijou south-facing garden & conservatory so you can make the most of the sun, with a stylish G-Plan table & chairs, as well as outdoor furniture. Or you can get on with your work in a flood of daylight, whatever the weather. In warm weather, fling all the doors open and let the kids or dogs come and go.

Upstairs, there is a double bedroom with wardrobe, a single bedroom with bunks and shared bathroom with shower & bath. (there's also a downstairs toilet).

Outside there's a secure metal bike shed, and access all around the property for kids or dogs to run in circles, safely fenced in. There's also two dedicated parking spaces at either of the property (though NB access down Trafalgar Court is narrow, especially for 4x4s - just take it slowly!).

The whole house is heated by a Nest thermostat, and there's 40Mb wireless broadband available to keep you in touch with your office, Netflix or iPlayer :)

Guest access

The whole house & garden is included for the duration of your stay.

Matt was a great host, very accommodating, friendly and helpful. We had a lovely stay. The entrance to the property is very narrow but Matt clearly explains this in the description and it was fine for our car. It’s easy to walk to York centre along the river and we had a great few nights.

A lovely (and very peaceful) house, with a delightful, private garden. The location was perfect for us .. we walked the dogs in the nearby, and very large, Rowntree Gardens, and the walk into town was around 15mins. There's some truly lovely independent shops, cafes & pubs a short walk away, and York City Centre was surprisingly easy to get to and well worth a few days to explore! We will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful little house with all you need for a relaxed stay in York. An easy 20 min walk to town centre and station, lovely neighbourhood with parks etc. All mod cons and very quiet neighbourhood, with good local amenities.

I have lived in York since 2001, and grew up in Oxford before that. Right now I live in Murton, about 15 minutes away from my Airbnb house. I love hosting people of all ages, genders, sexualities
