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, 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)
We have another rooms in the same house on Airbnb if this one is not available. Please check out my other rooms linked to this page via my personal profile. (click on my personal profile and scroll to the bottom to find them). You will also find our York Houseboat listing which may also be of interest if you are looking for a more unusual stay in York.
Its a large 5 bedroom shared house and there are 2 of us living here; Jelle a photographer originally from Holland and Jelle's 14 year old daughter who comes to stay on weekends.
We may not always be around as we all have busy lives and will be coming and going but we are always reachable to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You will get a key for the house so you can come and go as you like.
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 are lots of cafe's and restaurants and pubs within 10 minutes walk from our house.
There is an enclosed garden at the back, also great for relaxing in the summer and for secure bike storage.
The bedroom is clean, has a double bed, plenty of drawer space and fast wireless internet. The room also has a table and chair. Fresh linen and bath towels provided. This is my daughter's room when she lives here usually on sunday and mondays although we sometimes stay on our houseboat.
She wanted to make some extra money from her room while she was not here so by renting this room you are directly adding to her savings!
The room is on the 2nd floor in our house up 2 flights of stairs.
We have 2 shared bathrooms with 2 showers and a bath.
Kitchen - The kitchen is part of our private space but if you want to use it to cook you are welcome but please ask first. Its not usually available before 8:30am. You can store your food in the cupboards and there is room in the fridge.
Washing machine - You are welcome to use our washing machine and dryer, please ask.
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 handy parking.
A little factoid: the former Mayor of York lived 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.
Because of our central position we get booked up quickly so get in touch if you'd like to stay.
We look forward to hearing from you and to making your stay in York easy and enjoyable!
