The Space

Beautiful, comfortable terrace house, with use of private double room, in York center. Quiet location with permit parking next to house.

Whole house can be used with stylish lounge, kitchen and bathroom with shower. Outdoor patio space to enjoy the sounds of the Minster bells on warmer days. Main attraction of the house is its fantastic location in York center.

Use of Double Bedroom at rear of house so very quiet. Tv , wardrobe, desk and shelving space to use.

Kitchen recently modernised wih electric oven, microwave, dishwasher. Tea and coffee, and toast provided.
Lovely patio area to sit when warmer days are here.

Close to many historic sights York,Minster, Merchant Taylors Hall,Roman Walls. Next to St Johns College. Ideal for walking around the City Center and visiting the many bars and resteraunts.

I am very easy going and friendly and happy to tell you the best bars and places to visit. I love York and its history as born and grew up here. I have lots of local knowledge and can accomodate all ages of visitors.

Parking space by permits can be given for only £1.00 per night. Walkable from station or by taxi only 10 mins due to traffic. Lots of buses to coast, and Leeds nearby.

City center location so all attractions on door step.

My house is my home, it is quirky like me!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Alison has a nice cozy house with elegant interior design. It's very close to the Minster and major attractions. We enjoy very much in York and at Alison's place.

  • Her house is nice and near city centre. Alison is busy so we didnt meet her much and we hoped the breakfast can be more well prepared.

  • Location was fantastic, Alison answered all our local questions, arranged parking permits and recommended great places for dinner.

    June 2014
  • The place is filthy. There was a thick layer of dust on top of the headboard, on light fixtures and furniture. The carpet looked like it has not seen a vacuum in months. The window in the room was shut permanently so we could not get any fresh air. There were plenty of personal items all over the small room, even 3 pairs of winter boots right by the door. The bathroom was very dirty. There was grime and soap scum on the tiles, the floor was covered with hairs and garbage. There was so much all kinds of make up all over, that there was no room at all for our stuff to set down while we were using the bathroom. There was dust and cob webs everywhere. The wall was peeling and had stains what looked like mold. There was no hook for us to hang our towels. Awful place in such a beautiful city. We dreaded going back for the night. Our York experience was diminished because of the accommodations. I would never go back. We read the reviews before we booked and we were shocked how inaccurate they were. Airbnb should do a more thorough investigation of places they list. We were cheated and very disappointed.

  • The house was really nice and very close to the city center and yo all the main attraction. Alison was very kind and helpful, she also suggested us different places to have dinner ( we loved the "house of trembling madness" !!).
    If we'll come back to the magic York we'll definitely stay at Alison house again!

  • Great location, very short walk to York Minster and the centre of town. Alison was very welcoming and very flexible with our late arrival and leaving our bags on the day of departure. It was lovely to have toast provided every morning for breakfast. And we only bumped into Alison once while we were there so it almost felt like we had the place to ourselves!

    The room was lovely and very clean with a nice comfy bed and the house has been thoughtfully decorated.

    We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

  • A friend and I stayed with Alison for two nights, the location was great. About 20 minute walk from the local train station and a 10 minute walk to York Minster. The house was decorated very tastefully. I do wish the bathroom had been cleaner but overall our stay was good.

    March 2014
  • Our second visit to York and another stay with the lovely Alison. Once again we had an extremely comfortable two nights in Alison's home, the position is perfect, could not be better as far as we are concerned.
    If we return to York again we will definitely book with Alison.
    Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • Alison really was an ideal host. We spent two nights (and three days) at Alison's place and she was incredibly accommodating and really made us feel at home. The house is really very lovely and in a great location with the city center a short walk away (just under ten minutes) and close to some nice cafes and interesting shops. The guest room is very attractive and comfortable with fast internet. Parking is also very good provided you let Alison know in advance that you will need a parking permit. Part of the charm of the house is that it is both tucked away in a quiet residential cul-de-sac whilst being nevertheless close to the action.

  • We stayed at Alison's place for 3 days in January. We had a lovely time in her house. The room was very nice and big enough. Alison was a very attentive host and helped us out with the temperature of the room as we initially suffered under the very harsh weather in York at that time of the year. It was a perfect stay and we can only recommend Alison as a host. Thank you!
