    Superb cottage with everything you could possibly want - the kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! Just 1 minute from the river for a peaceful walk to the local pub, or a 5 minute drive into the edge of York to get the park and ride into the city. One of the best we have every stayed at. Thank you.

    Water pressure in the kitchen was a bit slow. If you wanted a bath and had some mobility issues it was not easy to use. Had one issue but Elaine and Derek sorted that out straight away on the same morning as we told them. Lovely people.

    We have just returned home from an amazing week in York! The cottage is beautiful, blissfully quiet and extremely well located for exploring an ancient City. Well equipped and very comfortable

    Very clean and comfortable cottage. They have got everything you need in a cottage. It was fairly easy to get to Askham Bar Park and Ride to go to York. Only downside is that there is no shop in the village, hence you need to drive to everywhere. Mobile signal was not great.

    Fantastic all round stay at this wonderfully location cottage, that had all the equipment and facilities, extremely clean and three very comfortable beds. Askham Bar park and ride minutes away for those excursions into York, but the most perfect location for exploring the many NT/stately properties within a 40 mile radius. Definitely in the top three cottages that I have hired in Britain and Europe within the last 25 years- excellent value!

    Best cottage we have stayed in. Spacious and wifi worked well. Smart TV was a nice touch & the welcome cake was also a nice touch. House well stocked and good quality provided.

    A delightful village location yet very close to the City of York which is accessible by car, bus or, when it's available, water bus. This boards just outside the Ship Inn which provides excellent food and drinks that are very welcome after disembarkation at the end of a day in the city. Accommodation was first class, very well equipped and spacious for the four in our group. A short drive to Bishopthorpe gives access to butcher, baker, Co-op and more good pubs to eat at. 10 out of 10!

    Very clean, comfortable and generously equipped accommodation; everything had been thought of. The only minor things that let it down were a lack of outdoor space or a view but I appreciate that there is not much the owners can do about this.
