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.
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.
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!
Basically respectful guests are more than welcome to our home. Please be aware that even if you are on holiday our family still have work to go to! Please keep noise to a minimum between 11.30pm and 6.30am! No smoking in the house.
No pets as we already have two of own! Our dogs do not go upstairs so you won't be sharing your space with them.
