The Space

We live in a semi detached 3 bedroom house with a nice garden (we like to grow veg) and plenty of parking, as well as garage space for a bicycle. The house is comfortable and generally clean and tidy. There are cooking facilities available, as well as a washing machine and dryer. The house is both smoke and pet free.

The bedroom available is at the front of the house and is usually very quiet. It has a double bed, wardrobe, 2 bedside cabinets, desk and chair. There is also wireless internet available. The decoration in the room has recently changed a little and we're in the process of sorting and updating the pictures.

The house is few minutes walk to the number 6 bus route which takes you into the city centre. Alternatively it takes just 25 minutes to walk to the York Minster.

If you are looking to eat out a little closer to home. the Dormouse pub is just a 10 minute walk away. It is a very popular place to eat & drink with a cosy country pub feel aswell as a lovely outside area too.

We are social people and like nothing better than to have a chat over a bit of food on an evening. Our party animal days are certainly behind us and with our little girl, we are entertained with something new everyday. She is generally a good sleeper but please be prepared for a bit of crying from time to time during the night.

Check In
  • We had a wonderful time with Beena and her family. They were friendly and welcoming and their home was spotless with all that we needed.

  • It was a lovely experience sharing the home of this delightful family. Beatrix is a sweet child. The room was nice, and the bathroom we shared with the family had a stall shower as well as a tub. (We Americans like showers--not always available in English homes!) It was a pleasant walk into the city, and we were able to leave our car at Beena's house.

  • We had a great stay with Beena and her family. Beena is very welcoming and helpful. The bedroom is quite comfortable, the walk to York was easy and, of course, Beatrix is adorable. We enjoyed our conversations with Beena and appreciate her help with navigation and suggestions of things to do.

  • Beena made us feel very welcome. The room is indeed comfy and spacious. The bed is VERY comfy and we slept very well indeed. The walk into town is about 30mins and it is a lovely walk - quite easy to manage as all flat and interesting. I would definitely recommend staying here and would certainly stay there again.

  • Beena, Stu and Beatrix were FANTASTIC hosts! We really can't say enough good things about this charming family. As soon as we arrived they were attentive to our needs, very friendly, hospitable and respectful of our privacy. Beatrix was an absolute delight! She is an extremely happy baby who is also very smart and friendly. The bedroom was quite large and very comfortable. Their home was practically a straight shot to the city center, which made it quite easy to get to. There is no doubt in our minds who we would stay with if (and hopefully when) we visit York again. We've been telling all our friends and family how York ended up being our favorite city in England and they should make a point to visit and stay with Beena, Stu and Beatrix!

    Response from Beena:

    Awww, thanks guys. So glad you had a great time. Beatrix loved you both too. She still asks for "Awix" from time to time! We hope to see you again too. All the best.

  • We had a wonderful time with Beena, Stewart and their darling little daughter, Beatrix. They were very friendly and accommodating and nothing seemed any trouble to them. The room is warm and cosy and has its own TV. The pleasant walk to the town centre only takes 20-25 minutes and we enjoyed looking at all the different styles of housing on the way in. We would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to visit York and see some of the wonderful old-world charms it has to offer.
