  • "Beautiful house and close to the centre of York."

    Wonderfully clean and owners provide towels for the hot tub, robes and slippers for each guest. Arrival snacks plus milk and Prosecco were a lovely touch. Also has everything you may need such as tea/coffee, condiments, shampoo etc. The hot tub was wonderful and we were so lucky to have such great weather too. York is a fabulous place for a long weekend and highly recommend Baggergate house. Lots of steps in the property though so beware if you don’t have good mobility.

    Thank you for your lovely comments Lisa and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

  • "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

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Baggergate House, property was extremely clean and kitchen was fantastically well equipped, there was also a lovely good basket of treats on arrival."

    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


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.
