Explore York’s treasure trove of hidden gems while staying in this stunning Victorian cottage. Perfect for families of four, this characterful property makes for an idyllic city break with just half a mile’s stroll into the heart of the action.

Step into the cottage and find yourselves in the spacious open-plan living room/diner. Admire the striking Victorian open fire as you sink into the sofa and unwind with a good book and mug of something steamy. The galley kitchen is a joy to cook within and has everything needed to cook up family favourites, including an electric oven and hob. Break away from the pack with a quiet moment in the fully enclosed courtyard, where your kids can play without the chance of escape! Climb the steep winding staircase to the beautifully appointed double bedroom, which boasts a handy dressing room and WC. Head up the second set of steep stairs to the converted loft space, where an eye-catching twin room offers a fun place for youngsters to sleep. Plan your adventures around the dining table in the morning, where you can enjoy your morning coffee and dine on a homemade continental breakfast.

Car keys can stay put on this holiday, with York city centre just 0.5 miles away from the property. This enchanting city beckons foodies, history buffs and keen shoppers. Find yourself exploring York Minster, the largest medieval cathedral in Northern Europe, uncover hidden gems in The Shambles, or try some of the finest chocolates by world-renowned chocolatiers. Green-fingered guests will love moseying around the herbaceous borders and cherry tree-lined avenues of Homestead Park (0.5 miles), while those seeking a bargain may like to venture around the shops at the Designer Outlet (4.5 miles).

A really delightful house within a short walk from the main city walls. The property itself had everything we needed and there were neat labels left around the house to help with figuring things out. We didn't use the upstairs room but would be great for two children so ideal for couples and families.

Compact cottage which packs a punch in a great location and right on the bus route. You can walk into Bootham Bar in 10 minutes (often quicker than waiting for a bus). Lovely gifts of treats and drinks on arrival and shop, cafe and bar right on the doorstep. Everything you need is provided. Lovely decor and features. Met the neighbour on our first Read moreday who was incredibly friendly and helpful with information about nearby parks and electric scooters. Other neighbours and cats also friendly! Hide

Loved our stay in York. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need. Parking is a little tight but good. York Minstrr is 15 minutes away and York is historical and stunning. We would definitely stay here again. We had our little labrador with us and she loved it and came on a ghost walk with us.

Lovely little cottage in a great location!! Really enjoyed our stay.. Things that may have been in the detail & I overlooked which would stop me from going back (although didnt change our great stay) are; lane width & manoeuvrability, plus parking space - small & awkward if you drive a big car. Slippery, slightly awkward stairs. Downstairs shower. Read moreGarden tiny (if you have dogs) & no lock on back gate (enclosed, not secure). Again, had a great stay & comments only to help others when booking. Hide

Great little cottage conveniently located to walking access into York and easy to drive out to the surrounding area. It had all we needed for a home away from home. The only word of warning, the stairs are very steep and probably not for those not fully mobile! The parking space is quite snug but was fine for us with a small car.
