  • "Had a lovely week here."

    We booked for location and didn't think the hot tub would be used, but it turned out to be a hit with all 3 generations and used almost every day! Facilities were great, house lovely and every requirement thought of. We enjoyed playing the board games at night too! Will certainly book again. :-)

    Thank you for your lovely review Donna! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we would more than welcome you back to Baggergate anytime! Property Owner

  • "Our second time at this lovely property and we'll be back for a third if we can."

    Beautifully clean and spacious and has a real "home" feel to it; it was always lovely to come home to the house at the end of a day. The location is amazing: city walls right outside, ten minute walk from the train station, ten minute walk from Clifford's Tower and Coppergate and on a main bus route too. Fantastic.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Stephen, this makes us so happy to learn that guests have enjoyed their stay and want to keep coming back! Hopefully we will see you for another trip some time soon! Property Owner

  • "A jewel near the city centre."

    We had the delight in staying here for a week and couldn't have asked for more. The house is deceptively spacious and has a lovely quirky layout. The welcome goodies were a lovely touch and much needed after a long drive to get there. The decor was very tasteful and the towels, slippers and robes were the icing on the cake. The jacuzzi... wow... a lifesaver after walking around the city all day. We used in several times and it certainly takes the aches and pains away! The house is perfectly placed to explore York on foot or to drive to nearby towns. So much to do, so little time. Local amenities and eateries are excellent and its a very friendly neighbourhood. We'd recommend this property to anyone on a city break in York. It's perfect.

    Thank you so much for the lovely feedback Jonathan! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much and we hope to welcome you back to Baggergate House one day in the future! Glad you enjoyed the hot tub, I must say its one of my favourite things about the house too! Property Owner

    Lovely property in a great location appreciated the Christmas decorations which made it feel very festive Only criticism quite a few light bulbs out and main light in living room not working which made reading at night difficult

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and hope you had a lovely Christmas. We are sorry to hear about the issue with the light bulbs, it was not something we were aware of before your stay so thank you for highlighting this. There are spare bulbs in the cupboard in the utility room but we will make sure that we check all lights during each changeover in future to prevent this issue arising again. Many thanks Heidi.

    Hairdryers in each room. Hairbands for the hot tub. Hot tub ready to use on arrival. Christmas decorations! An amazing and generous welcome hamper and a bottle of fizz! All wonderful. Just one thing missing: instructions on how to use the oven.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback Ruth. We are glad you enjoyed all the little extras that we provide for our guests. Instructions for the oven is not something we had thought of so thank you for that. We will get them added to the visitor book straight away! Property Owner

  • "We (3 female friends) booked Baggergate House for a 50th birthday celebration weekend."

    The house is beautiful - very quirky with all the stairs, but extremely welcoming, comfortable and just lovely. We had everything we needed to make our stay special; and Heidi & Trish (our hosts) were so kind - they not only provided the basic necessities like milk and tea so we could have a quick cuppa before venturing back out again, they also left us an impressive welcome basket of goodies, with Prosecco! We had a fabulous time and the house went a long way to making it a special weekend. All 3 of us are now thinking about going back for family holidays!

    Hi Susan Thank you for the lovely feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and already thinking about returning to us. Glad you enjoyed your goodies and that the birthday celebrations went down a storm sounds like a perfect way to spend a weekend! Hopefully see you again soon. Baggergate House Property Owner

All linen and towels (separate ones for the hot tub) supplied with dressing gowns and slippers too. The property is just outside of the city walls in easy walking distance to the centre of town.

  • "Baggergate house is absolutely fantastic."

    Definitely one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. The fixtures and fittings were very high quality and everything was thought of. It was literally like being at home in that everything was there. The owners clearly take a great pride in this lovely home and enjoy providing a great experience for their guests. The location of the property is outstanding- overlooking the City Walls, and a short walk into the city centre. Local shops -‘Bishy Road Shops’ are vibrant and varried. The proximity of the lovely Rowntree Park was also a bonus for us. The availability of a free parking permit was also a huge plus.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely feedback. We are so pleased you loved the house as much as we do. We hope to see you back at Baggergate House soon. Property Owner

    Hot tub was fab. TV had access to Netflix. The location was great and really near Rowntree Park which was excellent for the kids. Also near great coffee shop and ice cream parlour. There were more steps in the house that I had appreciated (possibly as I overlooked description), so a few between dining room and kitchen and lounge, we just had to watch our 2yo carefully, for that reason may suit slightly older families. There was no parking but very close to train station and car park nearby though expensive. Overall great stay, I would definitely recommend this house.

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.
