    Really enjoyable stay, everything supplied that was required and such a quiet location for it being so close to city centre - looking forward to a return trip.

    We had a really lovely time in York and very much enjoyed the convenience and comfort of Waters Edge. Would definitely stay here again (perhaps when we can enjoy the garden; it snowed when we were there!)

    this was our 2nd time at Waters Edge & it was just as lovely as the 1st, the location is ideal just a few minutes walk from the centre of York & the Christmas Market, the house is just so cosy & comfortable, it would be even better with a television in the bedroom & a mirror in the lounge but we will definitely stay here again & most certainly recommend it as a place to stay :)

    Ideal for the city centre. We arrived by train and at no time did we feel that we missed the car. If you like Wetherspoons it was literally a five minutes walk from the house and there was access to the Wall from here. The Tesco Express was 10 minutes walk as was Dick Turpins grave. York is a marvellous city and Waters Edge cannot be bettered as a base to explore all York has to offer. When we return to York this is where we will stay.

    The property was very comfortable, well equipped and we were also able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the surroundings. Although the view was partially blocked (minor), we were not impacted by the work on the pumping station. Although located just outside the city walls the property is in a good location and within very easy walking distance of the city centre. There is a bus stop very near by with frequent services into the centre and to the railway station. Also, the city sight seeing bus stops there as well.
