“Home from home”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent one week at Waverley as a family of 4 adults and 2 children. We also took 2 dogs.
The house is pleasent and homely.
All possible appliances, tools, crockery etc were provided.
The house was clean and had lots of storage for our things.
Comfy beds, lots of hot water, lovely woodburner, small but perfectly formed kitchen.
The stairs are steep but manageable.
Short, ten min walk into the city of York. Ideally placed for exploring the city. Fish and chips locally were lovely, local shop also wellll stocked and welcoming.
We will definitely stay here again.

“What an amazing find”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just had the most amazing weekend staying at this gorgeous, quirky, cosy, cottage like town house.It was so comfortable and homely we felt relaxed straight away.
Mary was a lovely host, leaving us delicious homemade cakes, and milk in the fridge for our arrival, which were much appreciated
after a long journey, and having the parking permit was a fab bonus.
The house is so conveniently situated and with all the added extras, it was a perfect place to stay, a real find.
Thank you Mary, we hope to be back.

“Great cottage close to York centre”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This three-bed, two bath, dog-friendly cottage was a great find! A 20 minute walk from the train station and a short walk to the centre of town. It also has parking for one car. Very convenient; highly recommended. The little secure garden at the back perfect for the dogs when they need to be let out.

However, for those with mobility issues, it would't work as the staircases are very narrow, steep and uneven.

“Lovely home from home”
Reviewed 24 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed for 2 nights with our 3 children in this lovely home, which is full of character. There were no problems with collecting the keys and parking pass, we also got a sheet of information about the house and nearby supermarkets/takeaways before we arrived. We appreciated that there was milk in the fridge, and the house was decorated for Christmas. The house is close to York Minster and the Christmas Markets were in walking distance, which was the reason for our visit
