Great place to stay in York.

Parking outside the house.
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 10-15 minutes walk to the train station (which connects with London in 2 hours, Leeds in 20 mins, Edinburgh in 1 hour and Scarborough in 1 hour)
There are 4 of us living here. Jelle a photographer from Holland, Jelle's 11 year old daughter Bella who comes to stay on weekends, Youngbin and Noela who are mature students from Korea and Toby (from Yorkshire) who is a full-time musician.
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 another Rooms on Airbnb. If this one is full, check out the other room please. The room is linked to this profile. Also see "Quiet and Clean in City Centre"
The neighbourhood called Bishophill and has a good community spirit.
There is on street parking in front of the house via permit

There is an enclosed garden at the back, also great for relaxing in the summer and for secure bike storage.
The bedroom (the 'Vincent room', inspired by Vincent Van Gogh) is clean, has a double bed, plenty of wardrobe space and fast wireless internet. Fresh linen and bath towels provided. If there are 3 of you and you, we can pull out a mattress on the floor and make up another bed.
We have a large Living Room with tv, dvd and free view box.
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.
Please note: 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. We'll
give you better rate.
Had a lovely stay in York, the room was indeed quiet (lovely and peaceful in fact!) and cosy, clean with a great hospitality tray. Would recommend to anyone wanting somewhere chilled out to stay in York.
We received detailed instructions beforehand on the location and easy to find the house. The location is perfectly located almost at the end of the old city walls, along it we can walk to York Minster. The room is clean and the bed is cosy, we have a very good sleep at that night. Jelle is very nice, we can find detailed instruction of the facilites, the tourist guide and restraurant information. tea, coffee, biscuit are provide within the room. all in one, we enjoyed our stay very much.
Very clean, great location next to the wall, and easy to work with. Literally just someone's home that you share. Had everything we needed, but the shower never got warm.
Just spent a lovely weekend at Jelle's place, pity we didn't get to meet as he's on holiday, but were welcomed by his housemates.
Great location, 10 mins walk into town, nice room, comfortable bed and ample tea, coffee, biscuits in our room. Will definitely return on the near future,
Thank you Jelle
Listing was accurate, I received detailed instructions beforehand on the location and how to get inside the house as Jelle wasn't in.
Pleasant, airy, light room - good facilities (tea, coffee, etc) and overall a great trip!
Excellent host, room and all round experience. Super location just wish I'd had more time to enjoy. Coffee and biscuits provided. An all round pleasurable experience!
