    Multiple buses to York city centre virtually from the front door. Two pub restaurants and very good fish and chip shop and chinese takeaway within two minutes walk. Cottage was very well furnished and equipped - immaculately clean. A great plus was the off road parking. Would highly recommend.

  • "The house was very clean and welcoming."

    Lovely layout and plenty of crockery. Welcome pack was very thoughtful. Only thing to mention was that there wasn’t a washing machine and a dishwasher instead. Would recommend staying at this property as close to city centre of York and Andy a bus journey away.

    [By way of update, as from March 2022, Stablefold has a new kitchen installed which includes a washer/dryer as well as dishwasher Property Owner

    Lovely welcome from hosts with flowers and foodie treats. House is small and perfect..has fully functioning kitchen. Bed really confortable and crisp bed linen.

  • "This property is absolutely perfect and an absolute credit to the owners Iain and Jenny."

    Their attention to detail for our comfort and convenience exceeded our expectations. The house has absolutely everything you need and more. We parked our car and it didn’t move until we came home. You can walk into York in no time. We had a trip to Leeds and Harrogate and walked to the train station in York in 30 minutes. However, there is a bus to both places less than 100 yards from the front door of the property. We will definitely go back and have no hesitation in recommending.

  • "Perfectly positioned to catch a bus into York centre."

    Welcoming pack was excellent, very much appreciated. Short walk to National Trust house Goddards which only has parking for disabled access. Only slight downside was the busy road, if you live in a quiet cul de sac like us we found it a little noisy.

  • "Jenny and Ian had kindly provided some lovely supplies on our arrival which included milk, cake, cheese, chutney and oak cakes."

    There were fresh flowers too, which was all very welcoming and a nice surprise. We found Stablefold to be extremely clean, warm and very comfortable, with everything we needed for our stay. The bed is very comfortable with good quality bed linen. Although the cottage is on a main road it seemed very quiet at night and we were not disturbed by traffic noise. Buses stop close by, so we left the car in the private off-road parking space at the back of the cottage for part of the week. We also walked into the centre of York several times - strolling, it took us about 40 minutes, and is a pleasant, almost level walk. Stablefold is a fantastic place to stay and we would definitely book again if visiting York.

About the location


Leeds 25 miles;

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
  • Christmas
