My place is close to art and culture, restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities, our house is set in a classic Victorian terrace in a friendly neighbourhood 5-10 minutes walk to the City Wall. (Note our cover pic is not of the house but of York Minster!)

The space

Comfy, real quirky family home. Sleeping accommodation, double sofa bed in the ground floor front room. Upstairs there bed rooms with a single bed and single and double loft beds. Our cat sunny is a purrrrfect host, but don't worry he is being looked after by our lovely neighbours!

Guest access

Whole house and rear yard with barrel BBQ

Interaction with guests

This is a genuine family home. Our friendly cat Sunny will be around to keep you company, but don't worry our neighbours will be looking after him.

As we are away for the duration we are offering low level of support during your stay. Our neighbours are very nice and we will leave you emergency contacts, but apart from this we will entrust your with our house and your pretty much on your own to relax and enjoy.

The house has three single beds upstairs and a comfy double pullout sofa bed in the front room. Nice west facing leafy garden with trampoline in the garden for careful kids.

Very nice place to stay. Close to the city center but quiet and calm neighbourhood.

We didn't meet Robbie in person, but he left us the code to get the key to access the house. The house is very pretty and located in quiet street, just few minutes walking to the York city centre.

Great property in central York. It's a family house so you have all the facilities you need, plus a very friendly cat!

Robbie and family were away but he left precise instructions on how to access the house, his neighbors welcomed us into the lovely quiet street and they were very helpful as we had bikes to store in the garden. The house is homely and comfortable and the garden is a peaceful hideaway. We were in York to do a Triathlon in Castle Howard and the house was a perfect place to rest and relax afterwards, everything you need to have a self catered experience and lots of nice pubs nearby too! We especially enjoyed the BBQ in the garden. We would visit again.

Great neighbourhood. Really close to York centre - about 15 mins walk to cathedral. Good shops and food places close by. Large supermarket 5 mins by car, also walkable. A lovely house. Nice spaces and light. Quite arty! The 2 bunks don't have a lower bed. But there is a large bed settee downstairs and one single bed. Robbie also left another mattress in case we preferred using that. Didn't get to meet Robbie and family as they were away, but full instructions left with other contacts in case of problems. Would love to visit again.

This flat is a definite find, especially after we had a series of underwhelming false starts in central York... Robbie's clear directions made it easy to enter the house, and all was as described; the location is in a quiet neighbourhood, a 24/h store and restaurants, pubs, cinema are close at hand; walk into historical York takes 15/20mins. You will love staying here if you appreciate the idea of living in the house of a creative, inquisitive family of book and nature-lovers! We were able to cook and relax in the evenings and thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
