This is undoubtedly one of the best holiday lets we have ever rented. It was spotlessly clean, warm and very welcoming, certainly a home from home. Although it is situated just off the main road there is no traffic noise whatsoever and is an ideal base for sightseeing. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anybody.

Beautifully furnished and clean property. Lovely patio area and garden - a real sun trap. A very peaceful tranquil scene. As for location; York only a few miles away and park and ride a bonus. Castle Howard also very close by and well worth an amble round. An excellent base in an superb location.
