“Comfortable,great location and a quiet street”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Very lovely stay. The owners were very accommodating,providing us with lots of helpful information on the cottage and York itself.
There were also pastries upon our arrival. Rooms were decorated to make us feel very much at home. Our week long stay was wonderful !
Looking forward to return in the future.
Thank you !

Just got back from a weeks stay at this property in York and all we spoke about on the trip home was booking the house again!
The house is very homely and is bright! The house had almost everything you could need even down to hot water bottles and a bottle of bubble bath! The only thing we couldn't find was a tea pot cosy but maybe people don't use these anymore? :)
The house it in a great location,5 minute walk to town-stop at Little Italy deli on the way,the pastries are to die for!!!
Having a parking permit was a god send as parking in York is not only expensive but limited.Mary kept us well informed with a list of little notes about the property and nearest conveniences which were very helpful.
All in all book this house it is just perfect!
Mary will be getting an email shortly to enquire about a week next year!!!!!!!!

“Absolutely beautiful house and perfect location.”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A group of us rented this house for a girls weekend and loved it. The house is like the tardis, bigger on the inside. All 3 bedrooms were a very good size and beautifully set out and decorated. I loved hearing the Minster bells every morning. We were left a gorgeous homemade cake and milk in the fridge when we arrived. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future.

Had a week here with my sisters. The house is ideally situated - just a few minutes walk into the centre of york. It is very good value and has all the little extras you dont normally have like tea bags and loo rolls! Also, there was a pint of milk in the fridge and a sponge cake on the table, a very nice touch. Will definitely book with Mary again should I or any of the family visit York again.

Our party consisted of 2 grand-parents, 2 parents, 2 children and a baby - and this property suited everyone. Plenty of room in the bedrooms and the downstairs space had been cleverly designed to fit in all mod cons.
A lot of holiday homes tend to be just that, with no personal touches, but Waverley feels just like a home with plants, knick-knacks and homely touches everywhere. Added to that is the kindness of the owner who left us some milk and a some lovely home baking.
The location couldn't really be better - 5 minutes walk into the centre of York -something to be appreciated when you have small children. You can park your car and not use it again until it's time to go home.
All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we wouldn't hesitate booking again when we return to York.
