Our traditional town house in central York is over 120 years old. It is easy going, relaxed and friendly. We are lucky to live in York’s most fashionable area with a great range of local cafes, shops, restaurants and traditional pubs. Truly unique for this city and as travellers ourselves we know these small things really count.
Check out our great reviews for amazing breakfast and late night food options right on your doorstep.
There's a well stocked store open until midnight seven days a week and we particularly recommend the local fish and chips. Life just couldn't be easier!
Only a few minutes’ walk of the medieval centre, old city walls and the rail and bus stations the location is superb. No waiting for taxis, buses or long walks back after a long day seeing the sights. As lifelong 'Yorkies' we have endless personal recommendations, maps and guidebooks waiting for you.
If you love to cycle, we are on the local and national cycle networks with very easy access to all York attractions, universities and colleges. Bicycles can be hired locally and secure safe parking is provided. The 2014 Tour De France is going right passed our front door.
There is a bus stop outside our house for those exploring further afield. The York Tour bus passes by and you can hop on and off as you please. Be sure to wave!
Across the road is a riverside park with a fabulous reading café and the renowned York racecourse with amazing Saturday morning flea market is nearby (people come from all over Europe for this).
On departure, don't be carrying bags around. Pick them up later en-route to the nearby rail and bus stations.
We are open to ideas so get in touch and we will seek to accommodate. We have hosted lots of world travellers students, academics, workers, couples, single travellers, honeymooners and cyclists in recent months and received 100 per cent amazing reviews.

We are very relaxed, happy to talk and suggest recommendations but equally happy to leave you to your own space
Fashionable part of town with great cafes, shops and pubs on fringe of city centre
Parking on street outside and very close to rail station, taxis, busses etc
The neighbourhood is lovely with lots to offer visitors including local park, river walk and 2 minutes from city walls
A lovely room in a beautiful house in York. Really easy walk from the city centre. There was really clear and simple key arrangements, my own big modern bathroom and a really comfy bed.
Didn't meet Julia but she was great at leaving me happy notes to wake up to. Communication we really clear and easy.. Highly recommend.. X
Please allow me to be slightly biased. The experience with Julia and Paul is absolutely the best I have through my travelling around various parts of the world. Simply put, Julia & Paul can be a brand in York.
The house is fantastic, so that I am motivated to study harder to buy one of my own like this in a years to come.
It is a 15 minutes' walk from the York Railway station, and the location is actually central to wander around the major scenic spots and tourist attractions. The shops and restaurants nearby presented an authentic image of the neighborhood (seeing the same customer joking around with the same waitress twice, and the same gentleman sitting at the same table reading with the same magnifying glass twice).
Julia and Paul are wonderful hosts, nice and warm. More importantly, they would like to share with us their travelling and adventures after graduation. I love people with stories and those willing to share are always a treasured gift to me. That is one of the reasons why I normally choose Airbnb rather than hotels.
Paul is knowledgeable about China as he and Julia have hosted a number of Chinese guests He tried to make us (essentially a pair of introvert individuals) feel more pleasant by talking about China. His sense of humor also made us smile and laugh out loud especially when he played with the glowing green toy on the shelf. He and Julia even prepared a book beside the bed for us to know more about this wonderful city that never fails to shine and fascinate.
Julia and Paul symbolized a lifestyle to me, a lifestyle that combines tranquility and sparkles, a lifestyle that i am striving to make me enjoy and make it endure.
We had a lovely stay in york, room was cozy and own bathroom a great bonus. Lovely couple. Hope to meet again x
nice friendly hosts, very clean and pleasant surroundings, close to city walls
A lovely room in a beautiful house, just a short, pleasant walk from the city centre. Julia was a very welcoming and friendly host. We would definitely stay here again.
Hi Simon, thanks for being our 100th reviewer! A milestone we never imagined reaching when we stumbled into this. All goes to show there's 1,000s of fabulous adventurous people out there looking for something other than the usual. Here's to the next 100! All welcome....Julia : ) x
Mum and I had really nice stay. Julia and Paul are very friendly and the room was warm, cozy, and clean. We could take good rest and refresh ourselves. It is also very close to the city centre: 10-15 min walk to every historic sites. I highly recommend the place!
This is a beautiful room in a great location. It was only a ten to fifteen minute walk to the city centre, cheap and easy parking (£1 a night on the main road). Can't recommend Julia enough.
Very nice place and very central, you have everything you need. Great host. recomend to everyone.
We had a very nice stay at Julia and her husband.
All three of us enjoyed their atmospheric house,we were sweetly provided with toys for our baby, and experienced great flexibility and hospitality on all accounts.
The house is also placed in a very nice and calm area, with a relaxed high street close at hand.
We can only recommend to stay at julias place:-)
Brilliant, thankyou julia and paul. Loved our stay, dead handy and nice location and cant wait to do it again in slightly more clement times... cheers, john and jo :-)
