Stayed with my husband and daughter over the Christmas period. The house is as described. Clean and well equipped. Heating permanently on so was never cold. Parking right outside the house. Great views from the garden. So easy to get to the centre of York, just minutes away which was great for shopping, lots of pubs and restaurants. Would certainly recommend to stay. Easy to book. Gerald the agent was helpful.

The property is better than what it looks like on the photos, spotless and very well organised, less than 10 mins walk to the very city centre, it proved extremely practical and comfortable for a long weekend with family.
The only downside is that it is poorly insulated from one of the bedroom so the noise coming from the bathroom water pipes and conversations in the kitchen are quite disrupting one' sleep.
Other than that it is in a very quiet and secure environment. Will definitely return if I go to York again

“Really Good Location”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We arrived here on a Saturday at the beginning of half term. Very easy to find. Great place location wise as its an easy walk to all the attractions. Lovely view out of the window of the river. House was clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. Very clean too.
The booking process is a bit old fashioned. I would prefer to book straight through Trip Adviser but that is my only niggle. Had a lovely break. Would recommend York Castle Museum and Eden Camp to families with older kids like mine, 13 and 10.

“Convenient, comfy, clean.”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lock View was very conveniently situated just outside the city walls and within sight of Cliffords Tower. It took about five minutes to walk into the City centre and we did this more than once. The property was comfortable and well equipped, and was well maintained and clean. The garden overlooking the lock was lovely for sitting out having breakfast or after a day's shopping. There was a very good range of leaflets in the property about events and attractions in and around York, which was helpful, and the map provided as part of the booking proved invaluable whilst wandering around York looking for antiques centres and the Mulberry outlet store! We also visited Beverley, which was picturesque, and the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet which was close by - lots of lovely under cover shopping. A very enjoyable long weekend. Would return to this property if visiting the area again.
