Fantastic house and ideal location!

5 of 5
We stayed here for a few days for my son's first birthday and it was perfect. The house offers stylish, modern decor and is incredibly clean which put us at ease straight away. The master bedroom is very spacious so we were easily able to put our son's travel cot at the bottom of our bed and while the house isn't massive, it provides plenty of space for a family of three and would also easily accomodate a family of four or even five, if one was a young child. The location was ideal. Clifton is a beautiful village on the outskirts of York, with all the local amenities you could need. We walked into York daily and it only took 10 minute to reach the city centre, which was great. If you are travelling with little ones, a few miles from Clifton is a place called Web Adventure Park and it's fantastic. It is a huge soft place centre but also offers free baby and toddler classes, outdoor sandpit and water fountain feature and some wildfowl to look at. Lastly, the homeowner Stuart was fantastic. From pre-booking right the way through to post-stay he went out of his way to answer all our questions and make us feel at home. We arrived to a lovely welcome package which included a bottle of wine and some cookies which we massively appreciated. He always replied to my emails in a timely manner and generally just gave us confidence in the accommodation prior to staying and it did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and if we're ever back in the area we wouldn't hesitate staying for a second.
