Our 2 bed house is an end of terrace property built in the 1870's.
Originally built to house the workers at Terry's Chocolate factory … which sadly is no longer making chocolate! This property is just a short stroll to York's premier Racecourse.
The house is approximately 150 years old so as you would expect, it does have character!
We have decorated and furnished the house to provide a clean, comfortable and cosy environment to help you relax and enjoy your trip to York.

The space
On the ground floor, you enter from the front door in to a cosy and comfortable lounge with a 3 seater sofa and an armchair. We have a Smart TV so that you can log on to your chosen Apps. Unlimited WiFi is provided.
We have an open plan layout from the living room in to the kitchen with an extendable dining table to seat 4. The kitchen has all essentials incl. electric hob and oven, microwave, washing machine and fridge/freezer.
We also provide tea, coffee, sugar and a few extra bits to help out.
The bathroom is located on the ground floor with a shower over bath, WHB and WC.
At the rear is a small yard with a bistro set for you to relax in if the weather is kind during your stay!
Upstairs consists of 2 bedrooms, bedroom 1 with a double bed (4'6") and bedroom 2 has 2 single beds (3' each).
