Shared entrance and stairs but self contained once in the loft. The house is in a quiet suburb south of the centre of York. It's not too far into the centre - a 10 minute bus ride or a pleasant 20-30 minute walk along the river Ouse.

The space

A lovely attic space, recently converted with a big airy bedroom, a good sized bathroom and a little kitchen area. The loft room has a modern fresh interior in grey, white and brights!
There's a lovely comfy king size bed with a non feather duvet and a cotton blanket. There's also a television, dvd player and selection of dvds. There's a hairdryer too. The bathroom has an electric power shower over a full sized bath. The kitchen has a fridge, kettle and combination microwave. You can borrow an iron and ironing board, just ask.
The room has a beautiful view over the back garden and our neighbours' gardens too!
It's the best of both worlds as it's a quiet suburban area with leafy streets. Nearby there are pubs with decent food and a row of shops for essential supplies.
There's a cycle/foot path at the end of the street and it's an easy 20-30 minute walk into town along the river Ouse past the Millennium Bridge.
York is a beautiful city with lots of history and loads to see! Plenty of pubs, restaurants and nightlife....
There are buses into town, and onwards.

Guest access

A shared front door and stairs but once you are in the loft it's self contained....

Interaction with guests

It really depends, mostly we are a pretty busy family but we are happy to help with anything you need; just let us know!

Other things to note

I provide tea, coffee and milk.
I also provide towels. Also clean 100% cotton bed linen (not ironed)!
Our broadband is very slow! Sometimes the water pressure is low, we try not to wash clothes and dishes when you are showering!
I suppose that's the difference between a hotel and a home!

We had a lovely stay in Theolyns' Cosy Loft Room. It was quiet and looked out on to the garden. It is exactly how it was described and pictured. The area was residential and a pleasant and easy walk to the city either along the riverbank or on the road. It was great to come home to after a big day out. Thanks Theolyn for a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Always made to feel very welcome and it's a peaceful haven after a long day. The fresh coffee is particularly nice in the morning!

The room is just as described; lovely, spotless, very well appointed, comfortable and much larger than expected. Wished we could have stayed longer. Theolyn is wonderful host and deserves all the accolades she’s already received. Highest rating!

Theolyn's place was just beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised by how much space we had, with a self contained kitchen and bathroom and a gorgeous little area for watching TV or reading, with a great selection of DVDs and books to choose from! Theolyn was brilliant, always quick to respond and gave us lots of handy tips and advice and even had maps ready for us! We stayed there for one night before the Yorkshire Marathon and it was perfectly located with on street parking, which really saved our skin! The croissants, milk and tea/coffee selection was a lovely touch, as was the huge selection of bubble bath! Her place is stylish and yet homely, very comfortable and we could not have asked for anything more and would definitely go back! 100% recommended. (Also, thanks Theolyn because I got a marathon PB!)
