The moment we walked into the cottage in Marygate we felt at home. It had a natural warmth and a welcoming atmosphere. The kitchen had all the equipment we might need and the welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We loved the comfortable lounge, the fluffy bathrobes, the rain showers and so so cosy beds. We are a family of 7 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The children especially loved being able to watch TV in their bedroom when they had woken up before us. This is one of the nicest holiday cottages we have ever stayed in.
The location couldn't be better as the cottage is directly opposite the museum gardens and the Minster and all the museums are all within easy walking distance. The cheapest and most convenient long-term parking we found was in North Street, just a 10 minute walk away, through Yourparkingspace. Once we we had parked the car it stayed in the car park until we came home.
We loved everything about 58 Marygate. Louise was very kind to work with us in regards to getting into the house on our schedule and she was very responsive to emails. The house itself is beautiful - exactly as pictured. Very clean. It is on a quiet side street. The kitchen was fully equipped which was great. A grocery store is right up the street! Laundry and dishwasher were also very convenient. The kids (and adults) loved watching Netflix during down time. On our last night, there was an orchestral concert with mini-fireworks show in the adjacent park. We sat in one of the bedrooms and watched the show. It was very special. If we find ourselves back in York, we will definitely be staying here.
I can not rate this cottage highly enough. It is perfect in every way. Beautiful, stylish decor. Gorgeous comfy beds and quality linen and towels. Rented this cottage for one week for my adult children, who all live in New Zealand, who had all flown home for my daughters wedding at the Hospitium. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect location. Myself and the bridesmaids could walk through the museum gardens to the venue. Louise had left Prosecco, beers and homemade cake for our arrival. Delicious! Thank you Louise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your cottage to all. Five star accommodation.
What can I say we have had the most amazing time at 58 Marygate for a friends big birthday celebrations. The cottage is beautiful and decorated to such a high quality. The cottage is also a great base to explore the lovely city of york. We will most definitely return in the near future and will certainly recommend it to friends and family. The welcome hamper was also a lovely touch. Thank you Louise
Charming cottage in a fabulous location.
Beautifully decorated with top notch linens and towels and such comfortable pillows.
We were welcomed with a gorgeous homemade cake with fizz and other goodies.
Walking distance from the train station and into the centre of York.
