                                                              Wonderful apartment, perfect hosts

                                                              We have stayed in York on several occasions, previously and never been entirely happy with the accommodation. Whilst staying in the city, in 2015, we spotted Talbot Court and were curious to know what lay beyond the gates. We found Stephen's and Christine's beautiful apartment, online and booked a short break, in May 2016. We could not have been more delighted, with the apartment, central location, and our lovely hosts. It's hard to believe that such a peaceful idyll can exist so close to one of York's busiest streets and yet, once you walk through the gates, you're transported to an oasis of calm and tranquility. The gardens and outlook are stunning and the only sounds drifting through the windows were from garden birds and Minster bells; the night-time view of a floodlit Holy Trinity church, right outside your living room window is a sight to behold. Stephen and Christine have catered for every possible requirement and the apartment is spotlessly clean and equipped to an exceptionally high standard. There were delicious cakes waiting for us, on our arrival, together with wine and a birthday gift for my husband. It felt like a proper holiday, from the minute we arrived and yet a complete home-from-home. We were so sorry to leave York and the apartment but intend to return, again in the near future; we have no intention, now of ever staying anywhere else, from and I would urge anyone considering a trip, to do the same-you won't be disappointed. Thank you, Stephen and Christine-we had a wonderful time :)

Don and Helen made us feel very welcome this wasn't our first visit and certainly won't be our last already booked for later in the year. See you soon

                                                              Fabulous house, perfect city centre location

                                                              The house was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for our group of 11 ladies! The bedrooms were lovely and the kitchen and sitting room were large enough for us all to eat and spend time together as a group. The location of the house was perfect - extremely central, meaning we could walk to the restaurants, bars etc... and the 2 parking spaces were a bonus for such a central location. The owner of the house was extremely helpful too. Overall, I couldn't recommend this property highly enough.
