We live in an end terrace large 5 bedroom house very close to the centre of York, surrounded by York's Ancient City Wall literally outside the door (see Pictures), which protects the house from city noise and traffic.
The City Centre is only 5 minutes walk away and its a 10 minutes walk to the train station (which connects with London in 2 hours, Leeds in 20 mins, Newcastle in 1 hour, Edinburgh 2 1/2 hours and Scarborough in 1 hour)
There are 3 of us living here. Jelle a photographer from Holland, Jelle's 12 year old daughter Bella who comes to stay on weekends, and Eilif who is living with us in York for 6 months.
We lead busy lives so we may not always be around, but you will get for own set of keys and can come and go as you like. We're always just a phone call away to help you make the most out of your stay
We have other Rooms on Airbnb. If this one is full, check out the other room please. The other room(s) is linked to this profile.
The neighbourhood called Bishophill and has a good community spirit.
There is on street parking in front of the house via parking permit, which you can get from us.
There is an enclosed garden at the back, also great for relaxing in the summer and for secure bike storage.
The attic bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe space and wireless internet. Fresh linen and bath towels provided. If there are 3 of you and you, we can pull out an air-mattress on the floor and make up another bed.
We have a large Living Room with tv, dvd and free view box which you are welcome to use.
The house has 2 shared bathrooms with 2 showers and a bath.
Kitchen - There are cooking facilities available, please feel free to use our kitchen if you would like to cook. There are some shelves in the kitchen for you to use and store you things. There is lots of fridge space too. There is also a washing machine for you to use if you need to.
Having travelled extensively and using using Airbnb on several occasions we think it's a great way to stay in a city benefitting from local knowledge.
The house might not have the most modern decor but it has character and charm, it is clean and comfortable and it has a great location and easy parking.
A little factoid: a former Mayor of York Phillip Booth used to live in this house.
If you have any questions feel free to ask, we want to make sure you enjoy your stay and we therefore aim to please.
We can sometimes accommodate some longer terms guests so if you are looking for a room for 1-6 months, (or just for 4 or 5 days a week on a regular basis) we could accommodate the right person. Please ask us for a special rate :)
