Good, clean and comfortable , convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family needed a week in a house fairly centrally located with parking, which is what we got. The house was very neat, tidy and clean. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The agent's staff were very accessible and helpful and the owners obviously take pride in the property.

Fantastic time at the races!

  • 5 of 5

An extremely well furnished house, comfortable,calm and very clean, there is a nice patio area at the rear for drinks or eating. We found the house in a nice quiet area, yet just round the corner is a very good pub : The Fox and Roman, where we had a nice meal, a short walk from there heading towards York is another great pub called the Cross Keys which has been recently refurbished.

We had a excellent Saturday at York races, then a very relaxed Sunday wandering round York. All in all a great weekend, cant wait to go again. David and Jane Bond

Number 14 Kensington Court is ideally located for exploring the historic City of York, a day or two at the races or using as a base to explore the Yorkshire Dales, Moors and Coast.

York has award winning museums like the Jorvik Viking Centre, The National Railway Museum, Yorkshire Museum, Castle Museum and rich heritage including York Minster, Clifford's Tower and the City Walls that surround the city centre.

The river offers the opportunity to enjoy a daytime or evening sight seeing cruise, or you can hire a boat for an hour or two if you feel like taking a picnic and exploring York from the river.

York Racecourse is just a few hundred yards away on the famous Knavesmire.

You can enjoy an after dinner Ghost Walk or Floodlit Evening Cruise, and there are free guided walking tours every day. The Visitor Information Centre on Museum Street near the Minster is a must see, as you can pick up lots of information and maps, and book tickets for theatre, tours and events.

There is always something going on in York with a range of exciting festivals and events throughout the year. The historic Roman Walls around the city can be walked during daylight hours, and you can find interesting streets such as Stonegate, Shambles, Fossgate and the intriguing Whip-ma-Who-ma-Gate.
