“Absolutely lovely, couldn't have asked for a better house to stay in.”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a lovely time staying in Riversmead, it was lovely and clean, everything in perfect working order and had all we could have needed for a short break. The wine and provisions that were left for us were a wonderful surprise and and much appreciated. The house is very handy for town, even with a buggy and a walking 4 year old it only took 15 minutes to walk into the centre of York along the main road and only 30 minutes along the river to the Train Museum. We cant recommend this holiday rental highly enough.

Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Really lovely house and only a ten minute walk from the centre. Very comfortable and clean. Well equipped and really appreciated the little welcome pack. Would love to come back some time. Really is just like being home from home.

We appreciate your kind comments . Yes the river foss is amazing , specially this time of year with all the wildlife and baby duck, swans and gosling, it fascinating to watch them use the crossing in front of Clifford's tower too. Once thank you for your kind comments and we hope to see you again in the future.

“Look no further, the perfect place.”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We visited for a weekend in March 2015 and were impressed with the location and cleanliness of the property. However, the most impressive aspect was the considerable attention to detail. Everything you could need for a comfortable stay was provided as well as little luxuries that gave a personal touch and made us feel very much at home. Clearly Jayne and Keith have put considerable thought into how to make this property a home away from home with cakes, wine and provisions for breakfast, as well as ample information on the area and how to use the various white goods and technology. I was particularly delighted when realising I had forgotten my umbrella; lo and behold there was one available in the cupboard (thankfully it turned out to be beautiful day). I would wholeheartedly recommend this house for a holiday in York and am already planning my next visit.

“Riversmead”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Beautiful property outfitted with excellent class and consideration. All furniture appliances are modern and top rate condition. Location is walking distance to the city wall, pubs like the Phoenix Inn, and several restaurants. We left our rental parked out front in the stall. The backyard looks out on a canal with swans when we were there. The wifi was solid and quite fast. We felt warmly welcomed upon arrival and thoroughly enjoyed this place.

The only knock I have is the only bathroom is on the upper floor middle to the bedrooms. Which is excellent at night but a bother during the day.
