Cosy terraced 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property, combining access to York city centre attractions, shopping, bars & restaurants and a quiet location.

3 Buckingham Street is perfect for families and small groups, you can even bring your dog! Refurbished, with a recently added shower room, comfy beds, beautiful bed linen, essentials ( tea, coffee), fast WiFi, and flat screen TV with free Netflix and an Xbox with plenty of games for extra entertainment, much thought has gone into setting up this property.

Perfect location; imperfect accommodation

The house is in a row of charming early Victorian workers' cottages about five minutes walk from the centre of one of the most interesting and historic cities in the UK. It is tastefully and comfortably furnished. However, it is advertised as accommodating six people. It doesn't, especially if they are not one family or all adults. The rooms are small: one had only a large single bed and another, with a small double, required some dexterity to navigate. The sitting room/area had only five easy chairs and, for example, there were only four wine glasses and four tumblers. The worst thing though was the bathroom facilities. There was an adequate bathroom through the kitchen on the ground floor but that was a route-march from the top floor bedroom and difficult in the dark. There was also a recently installed shower room on the first floor, which was very cramped but would have gone some way to solving the problem if the lavatory had been a proper one and not of the macerating variety carrying a large notice telling us only to use it for urine. We were five adults and the poor toilet availability led to some embarrassment. One last thing: the cleanliness was superficially acceptable but, as our week progressed, we found bits of food between the cushions of the sofas, other people's detritus in the corner of a bedroom and food hard-baked on to the oven trays. In covid times, these omissions are hardly admissible.

Reasonably Comfortable cottage in convenient location but it does have a few issues. It’s a house for 6 but there is comfortable seating for only 5 people. Only enough Cutlery for 5 people. Upstairs toilet allows only limited use.

I very much enjoyed my stay. The location is very (very) convenient for the town centre - 5 mins walk. 10 mins from the brilliant local shops on Bishopthorpe Road. Cosy place and nice outside space. Netflix and Xbox nice touches.

This house is ideally situated for exploring York by foot. Resident parking was very useful and there were plenty of places available on the street.
It's a nice quirky property that is probably getting to the stage of needing a little bit of TLC and a really good clean. It was very hot when we stayed there but parts of the house remained quite cool, which was a relief. There is a climb to the top bedroom but the addition of a "pit-stop" shower room does help as I can imagine it was quite a trek from the attic to the back bathroom before this was installed. Even though there is a pub around the corner, which did give some late night entertainment, it is generally really quiet.
York is amazing, it's the busiest place we have visited since March but it still felt safe and the people were very respectful of all the current safety guidance. We managed to visit a couple of tourist sites which had recently opened including the Minster which is a must.
All in all a really good week with the only slight let-down being the cleanliness of the property and confusion over how to dispose of your rubbish.

Great place for our family of five. Perfect location near to train station and all the museums that York has to offer.

The house is clean in good location in the city centre but is still quite, it is a small house but owner provides every thing that you need with out been cluttered. This house is good for a weekend but for along stay it is alittle bit tight as it has only 1 bathroom which is located on the ground floor

Stayed here for a week with our dog. Lovely property with everything we needed and some nice Christmas touches as it was December! Wooden and stone floors easy to keep clean with the dog. Comfortable lounge and excellent bedrooms. So convenient for the shops, bars and restaurants and the river just over the road. Would recommend to anyone with or without a dog!
