A comfortable and cosy single room in a quiet residential neighbourhood within the city walls. A lovely old town house in York's thriving city centre, a short and pleasant stroll to the central tourist sites and just 5 minutes from the train station.
Your room is on the second floor of our double fronted Edwardian family home in the very central but surprisingly quiet and relaxed area of Bishopshill. It is warm, quiet and comfortable with a good quality single bed, fresh sheets and towels and a large shared bathroom (pictured) on the same floor.
The room is nice and bright during the day but we have good black-out blinds on both the windows so you can sleep peacefully at night (and have a lie in if you want!).
The bedroom also has a desk for guests' use. Part of the room has restricted ceiling height which requires those who are 6ft-plus (1.83m) to take care!
We also have a large number of books and board games you are welcome to borrow on rainy days- just let us know if you need anything. And do feel free to let us know if there is anything you would like us to provide - we will do our best to accommodate where possible.
Accès des voyageurs
Check in is nominally from 2, with check out at 11, but we are very flexible and will do our best to fit in with your schedule. We can also try to store bags if we aren't able to let you keep your room till later. You will be given your own key and can come and go as you please, with access to your room and bathroom. We don't offer access to the family spaces or kitchen, but there are a large number of good cafes and restaurants within a short walk of the house.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are a busy family with a very small boy, so we are around on and off during the days, and are very happy to give you pointers to help make the most of your visit. My wife is particularly good at keeping track of where serves the best cake! Just let us know if you want any information. Equally, we are happy to give you your own space if you prefer.
Our little boy! You shouldn't see too much of him and he'll be sleeping on a different floor to you but just something to be aware of should you have a severe aversion to young 'uns.
We also have a double room in our house which may potentially be available, also via Airbnb, linked to this profile.
No smoking whatsoever and no pets.
No access to kitchen and please refrain from eating smelly hot food (i.e. takeaways/kebabs etc!) in your room.
Please remove your shoes in carpeted areas and be considerate after 11pm - this is our family home.

I live with my wife and young son in York - we absolutely love the city and having both attended the university (over 10 years ago now...) vowed to come back when we started a family!
After travelling extensively during our 20s, we have recently settled into family life but miss meeting new people - hosting via AirBnB allows us to still do this whilst also ensuring we're less ambitious than we might have been in the past in exploring new places!
I enjoy nothing better than an early morning run along the river or around the city walls and my family share my passion for our local area - my wife has a great knowledge of the local cafes and coffee houses and my Mother-in -Law is even a tour guide at York Minster!
