The space
The Details -
Offering excellent value for York, within an easy 5 min stroll of the Park and Ride bus that goes into the heart of beautiful and historic York city (10 min bus ride approx), a 1 min walk from the Park and Ride bus stop that goes to York Hospital, close to the Route 65 National Cycle Network 'Way of The Roses' Cycling path and Rawcliffe Country Park, is this very well equipped, private, ground floor, cozy double guest room with key pad locking door.

This room is thoughtfully appointed making good use of the space and equipped with a wall mounted 55 inch 4k Smart TV, (enabled with Netflix and Prime but you use your own account) well positioned on the wall in front of the bed. There's an in room microwave, kettle, complimentary tea and coffee, silent mini fridge and hairdryer.

NOTE: The bed is a small British double bed , which is 4ft or 120cm in width. A standard British double bed is 6 inches or 15 cm wider. However, they are both the same in length.

There is a luggage storage facility at York Railway Station and another near to York Minster in the city centre. This is often the best option for guests arriving or leaving by train. Yorbag is very convenient for York Minster, and The Shambles and is inexpensive.

It would be prudent to pre-book visits to museums, attractions and popular restaurants.

Guests of all backgrounds and nationalities are welcome.

Thank you.

Other things to note
This is a small room with a small double bed but with fantastic use of space and no compromise on how it is equipped with a large wall mounted TV, fridge and microwave. There is a kettle for making tea and coffee and small dining area in your room. You can dine in the privacy of your room and get a food delivery or there's a local shop for microwave meals and snacks just 1 min walk from the house. There is no kitchen access.

This room is on the ground floor and convenient for the shared bathroom next door.

There is more foot traffic on ground floor generally, especially during daytime. Night workers may prefer this room on first floor, airbnb.com/h/york-england-homestay

Guests with mobility problems should be aware there is one steep step into the house.

You must book for the correct number of guests. If you intend on having an overnight guest for part of your stay, you could do separate bookings. Alternatively, please send me an enquiry. Thank you.
