  • "Lovely property, great location with essential parking; very well appointed & extremely comfortable."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "A super house with just a 10-15 minute walk into the town centre."

    Very clean property with everything in (and a wonderful welcome basket - thank you). There are 2 pubs around the corner that do food and we chose the Mason's Arms which I'd highly recommend. So much to do and see and our few days included the York Dungeons, the Jorvik Viking Centre, Van Gogh Experience, Dick Turpin's Grave and Shambles (market), shopping and more. We also took a Tour Bus around the city. If we do come back and visit, we will definitely book here again.

    It was lovely to read of your positive experience at No 17. You certainly fitted a lot into your short stay! The Masons Arms is always popular with guests. I hope I can welcome you back one day. Property Owner

  • "Great base for exploring York."

    Comfortable house with very kind gifts on arrival. We think drainy smell was as a result of recent flooding. A couple of pans in need of replacement. We shared the details and our experience with a friend who has already booked for July! Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Thank you for your feedback and highlighting a couple of points. The pans will be replaced and as I haven’t been aware of a drain smell anywhere I can only assume anything you may have experienced was as a result of the property’s close proximity to the river which has been in flood on several occasions recently.

    What an absolute gem! This property was absolutely perfect for our 7 day break in August. We were welcomed with a very generous welcome basket of fresh fruit, bread and treats. As well as milk and butter in the fridge. The property had lots of the essentials such as toilet rolls, soap, tinfoil, hairdryers etc. Which is so useful when you have travelled across country and you just want to get settled in! The parking place really was a great addition to our stay. Meaning that we didnt have to worry when we ventured out in the car, about getting a park on our return. The house was just spotless and really comfortable. The garden at the back of the property was a little suntrap, just lovely. As for getting into the city centre, it was a 7 minute walk along the riverside (just beautiful). Although you can walk in via the road if you wish. It was lovely to come back to the house after a busy day of exploring, the three of us were sad to leave at the end of the week. We will definitely be back! As lovers of York, I think we've found our new favorite place to stay! Thank you so much!

    What a lovely review, thank you! The Housekeepers and I do our best to provide a comfortable home from home and look forward to welcoming you once again. Property Owner

  • "An excellent location with parking included."

    However, the Wi-Fi did not work at all during the time we were there, despite attempts to reset as described in the owner’s book. The owner was away and unable to sort the problem. This might seem a small thing but it made looking for train timetables, opening times and other York attraction details difficult. And just to add - the loo seat is quite wobbly! The shower needs the sealant replacing as it is quite unsightly.

  • "Lovely little town house a mere 2 minutes walk from the city walls."

    The off road parking was fantastic. Also a 1 minute walk from the beautiful walks along the river. We have only one complaint- not a single chopping board in the kitchen- only a wooden breadboard. So we bought a set of chopping boards and left them there. Very generous welcome pack!! To the owner: please consider getting rid of the chairs in the bedrooms and putting in a chest of drawers so we have a surface to put things on. We swapped the chair for a table from the sitting room. Also, please could you put your bedroom mirrors on the walls, not the floors? I used the sitting room mirror or else I would have been bent double! Thank you for a lovely stay!

    Thank you for your feedback, I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay. By not fixing the mirrors to the walls allows the guests to move them to gain optimum view and there is a large mirror in the bathroom. Another chest of drawers would duplicate the drawers below the wardrobe and there are 2 bedside drawers in each bedroom. Guests often prefer a chair for laying over clothes, as an aid to dressing or simply a quiet space to sit. Thank you for leaving the chopping boards however I have removed them as they are so thin that cutting through them would damage the work surface. Property Owner

    There was no owner contact number so I rang Sykes, they were shocked and said they'd ring the owner. When Sykes rang me back a knock came on the door at the same time and it was housekeeping. They said they had been delayed and told we wouldn't be arriving until 4.15pm. We sat back in the car and 40 minutes later it was ready, spotlessly cleaned. The owner emailed me that evening apologising, said she had waited for them until 2.30pm when she had to go, she was told by housekeeping they would be there soon. She had not told them we wouldn't be arriving until 4.15pm at all and would be having words. Sykes did their best and sorted the problem well. Later the same day we found a purse in a drawer and reported it to Sykes, they said they would ring later with collection details, but they never did. I contacted the owner on our 2nd to last day telling her of it, she said she had been contacted by the owner of the purse and would collect if after we left to return it, but that housekeeping are told to check each drawer and cupboard. Skyes not ringing was poor when they said they would but at least the owner sorted it.

Our 16 year old grandson loved the place and decided it would be just the sort of place he would like as a first home!!

Doesn't make sense to me - unless the larger bedroom should have had two single beds in it. Just a point!

Good wake up call ! Only suggestion would be a nest of tables for front room. Only 1 side table so we had to bring patio table in. Lamps in front room need bulbs and pans scratched but only little niggles. Owners left lovely welcoming note with wine and chocolates. Much appreciated, would highly recommend and use again.

    The upstairs was hot and so a fan and or a summer weight quilt would be good. The cottage was immaculate and well kept and in a superb location. We had a lovely time.

  • "The house was beautifully decorated and fitted out and was spotlessly clean."

    It was very handy for walking into the city centre and had some excellent restaurants nearby. (Particularly recommend Totos Italian). Welcome touches of flowers, milk, Cava and beer were very much appreciated. The only issue was the toilet door would not lock from the inside and there was no number to contact to have it rectified. We did not even attempt to contact Sykes about this due to our experience outlined below. However we are tempted not to book again due to the noise of guests returning to the Novotel up to 3.15 am which woke us up almost every night. We realise that is not in the control of the house owners but it did affect our stay. In terms of Sykes, we are disappointed in the service we received. We messaged via the website (as we could not get through by phone) to change the guests from 3 - 4 and to ask about additional parking. This was sent more than a week before our arrival date and we still have not received a reply and we left yesterday. We organised our own additional parking as we know that area of York well but if we had been first time visitors, we would have struggled. In summary, excellent property with lovely welcome touches, but feel let down by Sykes.

  • "We were extremely disappointed with the cleanliness of this cottage."

    When we arrived at the cottage it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guests, bearing in mind, the previous guests vacated on the 13th March, we arrived on 14th March. Dirty towels, dirty shower, beds as if someone had just got up, kitchen floor messy, untidy sofas. On the plus side, someone had been in and left milk, orange juice, butter, jam, and cake.

    With excellent parking facilities, I couldn't have wished for a better location . The property offered i would not hesitate to say, the cleanest and most comfortable accommodation I have so far experienced, they had skimped on nothing. Everything I could have wanted was on hand and the bathroom shower was exceptional. The owners left us a welcome pack far beyond what I would have anticipated which was a fabulous way to start our new year celebrations.

  • "Fabulous property."

    Very close to city centre in a very quiet street so it was perfect for a restful break. We loved the uncluttered, light airiness of the house yet had everything we needed. Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful bathroom. Loved the decor throughout, including the Christmas touches on the hearth. Extremely generous welcome pack was very much appreciated. Fantastic base for exploring York and relaxing in afterwards. A home from home that we would be happy to return to.

    Dishwasher worked a treat, and very quietly too. Heating nice and warm and easily adjusted . Only negative was the key box which was tricky to open, and then the front door and back door locks were hard to open / use . the knack of these is to push EXTREMELY hard upwards, and farther than you think, and then they open ! ps Fairy lights around the garden were a nice touch , and cheerful.

About the location


Howardian Hills AONB 14 miles; Leeds 25 miles; North York Moors National Park 25.4 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.
