The room faces south-west, is light, has a 3/4 bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bookcase and bedside table. Walking: 2 mins to Bishy Road, 10 mins to railway station, 15 mins to town/bus station, 20 mins to universities. No cleaning/booking fee.
This is a 2-bed flat and the guest bedroom is a good size. The bed is a "three quarter" bed, which is in between a single and a double. (Mattress width: 120cm or 3 foot 11; length: 188cm or 6 foot 1.) It's generous for one person and fine for two.
The flat has been recently redecorated and is on a small estate in a very central location just outside the city walls. It's safe, peaceful, clean, comfortable and convenient: an ideal budget location.
Besides the bedroom and bathroom (bath and shower with instant hot water), you are welcome to use the kitchen (washing machine/fridge/gas cooker) and the living room (TV with freeview, balcony where you can smoke if you want to).
I provide bedlinen and towels. You are welcome to help yourself to tea and coffee.
I work, so will not be around all the time. However if you need help or want directions around York or ideas for things to do locally, I'm happy to help.
This is a second floor flat in a block with no lift, so sorry, it's not wheelchair-accessible.
I have a cat. He never goes in the spare room but you need to bear this in mind if you have allergies.
Are you driving? Where I live, it's resident's parking only on the street, after the first hour, except 5pm-9am. I don't have a car so don't have parking permits, but there are two (reasonably cheap) public car parks within easy walking distance (on Nunnery Lane and Bishopthorpe Road).
This is my home so please treat it with respect, and be kind to my cat.
I like having people in my home and am happy to welcome visitors.
My neighbours have young children, and it's very quiet round here. This is not an ideal place to stay if you want to come home from the pub and party! You are welcome to come and go as you please provided you respect this.
I've lived in York for 19 years and know the city really well (which is handy if you need restaurant recommendations). I'm very happy to have visitors although I'm concentrating on my PhD studies (I'm a full time mature student). Fortunately I live a stone's throw from to the best street in York for coffee shops, and town is a short walk away, so there's plenty of distractions.
If you want to ask me any questions, just email.
