    This spacious and beautiful house scores 10/10 on every aspect. It is always warm and welcoming, very clean and extremely comfortable. It is a walkable distance to the city centre, and offers everything you could want for a holiday or weekend with family and friends! My friends and I stay at this 'home from home' every year for our Christmas get to together and we have already booked booked for next year!

    Very enjoyable as per usual we must have stayed in Abbeygate over 20 times over the years. Cleanliness was not as higher standard as usual but this would not deter us from booking again for next year

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Cleanliness in the house is extremely important and we were very concerned as this guest is one of our many valued regular visitors who return every year. It seems that unfortunately one small area had been missed by our cleaners who usually work very hard and do a great job. So please regard this as just a blip and we will continue to make sure that Abbeygate is the very clean house that it has always been.

    We had a lovely stay in Abbeygate. It is a very well appointed house which comfortably accomodated two families of 4. It was a hot week so the road noise was noticeable with the windows open at night but this is to be expected given the fantastic city-centre location. We only used the car once in 7 days and walked to all the major attractions of York. Thanks to Sue for a lovey house.

    A great base for exploring York, and comfortable for 8 people. We appreciated the selection of games, DVDs and books on York. The local Bishopthorpe Road facilities are also excellent.

    This property suited our needs very well as we were a four generations group, and the ground floor bedroom and shower room was very useful.

    Very nice house with all the features needed for a week with the family. The location is very good, just a few steps from the centre of York while at the same time very good accesible by car.
