  • "The owners were very friendly although we saw little of them,welcome package was just a small bottle of milk 2 tea bags and some flowers."

    I would say the place could do with updating,particularly the bed which was very uncomfortable,it felt like 2 small mattresses put together,also the very small wardrobe was not big enough,it was more like a cupboard,so a bigger wardrobe is needed.also my wife and i are both age 81 and we found the stairs far to steep,i had to keep an eye on the wife each time she wanted to use them.another handrail would have my opinion the stairs are not suitable for the aged or infirm,one other thing needed was a light outside the door as its difficult to see the key safe numbers,we had to resort to useing our mobile phone lights.the outside light did not work and we were told that this was an ongoing problem

    The only one thing was the poor performance of the TV. It didn’t inconvenience us too much but anyone staying in the winter with the dark nights might find it a drawback.

  • "The Studio is a comfortable, well equipped property."

    It is located close to York city centre which worked well for us. We were welcomed by the owners with some cake, tea bags and milk which was a nice touch. The garden is fairly large however it had the property's water treatment right in the middle of it which did spoil it a bit. The car parking area was gated which meant the car was safe and off of the fairly busy country lane. This property was good value for money and I would recommend it to others with dogs who just want a bolt hole to use whilst visiting York and the surrounding area.

About the location


York 8.5 miles.

Stamford Bridge, as its name suggests, was a fording point over the River Derwent for a Roman settlement. Nowadays, it is a village with a selection of shops and restaurants and is notable for a renovated railway viaduct, which is now used as a cycle and public footpath. The village is well known as the site of the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25th September 1066, which marked the end of the Viking era in Britain. Within easy reach are the pretty Yorkshire market towns of Malton, Beverley and Driffield and within an hour’s drive is the unspoilt coastal resort of Filey with open beaches and the nearby RSPB nature reserve at Bempton.

Please note: this property only allows Friday check in
