Holiday Rental House
The perfect place for a staycation! Close to open spaces (Rowntree Park, the Racecourse, Museum Gardens), town, and gorgeous riverside walks and cycle routes, but wonderfully tranquil and secure. Super-fast wifi included. Free parking for one car outside the house (we provide the permit). Sunny and spacious rear yard, ideal for a socially distanced G&T/BBQ. Completely renovated in 2017 (and comprehensively deep cleaned and refreshed post-Lockdown Mark I in 2020), 25 Victor Street offers comfortable, elegant and stylish accommodation a stone's throw from the centre of York. The house is ideal for four, but will also sleep a total of six (one double, one twin, one sofa bed), and offers all mod cons, whilst retaining its Victorian elegance.

Close to open spaces (Rowntree Park, the Racecourse, Museum Gardens), town, and gorgeous riverside walks and cycle routes, but wonderfully tranquil and secure. Super-fast wifi included. Free parking for one car outside the house (we provide the permit). Sunny and spacious rear yard, ideal for a socially distanced G&T/BBQ. Completely renovated in 2017 (and comprehensively deep cleaned and refreshed post-Lockdown Mark I in 2020), 25 Victor Street offers comfortable, elegant and stylish accommodation a stone's throw from the centre of York. The house is ideal for four, but will also sleep a total of six (one double, one twin, one sofa bed), and offers all mod cons, whilst retaining its Victorian elegance. Book-lovers will be in Paradise, while teenagers and anyone who needs to work from home will be equally happy with the wifi provision and internet-enabled TV. Younger guests will no doubt enjoy the proximity to three different playgrounds (including one at the end of the road, which is ideal for toddlers). The upstairs bathroom has both a roll-top bath and large walk-in shower, while the utility room downstairs offers a second loo and basin. Outside, there is a private and spacious yard with seating, accessed either through the kitchen or via the French doors in the dining room - perfect for a gin and tonic on a summer's night, or for a socially distanced mulled wine in December, if you're wrapped up warmly. It's also completely secure for small children and pets. More

The house was really lovely, location was perfect. Centre of town was easy to walk to and really good local shops and cafes on the door stop. I would recommend this place and would definitely book again.

About the neighbourhood
The area is a quiet residential area within the city walls. It's hard to believe that it's so close to the centre of York on one side, and Bishopthorpe Road (voted by The Times as one of Britain's best High Streets) on the other!
Getting around
It's quickest and easiest to get around on foot, if you want to stay within the City Walls. If you want to venture further afield, though, the station is a short walk from the house - and there are also regular buses to the North York Moors, Castle Howard, the Eden Camp, Flamingo Land etc... And if you are travelling with children and pets, everything is within easy reach of the house (on-street parking is available for one car: there is no additional charge for the use of the permit).
