Fabulous space for cooking and eating

The kitchen has a beautiful wooden work surface and includes electric oven+grill, gas hob, fridge-freezer, microwave and washing machine.

We love cooking ourselves and have put a lot of thought into providing a well-equipped kitchen so you can cook as you would at home. Plenty of pans and utensils, decent sharp knives etc. Enough crockery that you don’t have to wash up after every meal.

The dining area is light and spacious, made even lighter and more spacious by a huge antique French mirror. We have quality china and plenty of glasses so you can still enjoy a special meal without needing to go out.

French doors open onto a walled courtyard with table and chairs for alfresco dining, weather permitting!


Still not sure if we can be of help? Check through some frequently asked questions which may help you with a query.

What about cleaning products and washing machine tabs?2022-05-04T10:44:40+00:00

Yes, everything you need should be there. Fresh tea towels too. We aim to make it like home from home!

Sadly the laundry doesn’t stop on holiday . . .2022-05-04T10:45:25+00:00

We know the feeling! There is a retracting washing line you can hook up in the courtyard and there are racks for indoor drying if necessary. We have plenty of clothes pegs. Iron and ironing board are there too if you feel you really have to!

What basic foodstuffs will we find in the cupboards?2022-05-11T21:46:25+00:00

There’s salt, pepper, spices, sugar and olive oil, plus possibly a few other basics. Feel free to use anything there, but if you finish something please replace it.

Is there a dishwasher?2022-05-11T21:45:06+00:00

Sorry, no. With the layout of the kitchen and having a young family, we needed to prioritise a washing machine! We do find that without the pressures of everyday life, washing up at St Denys is not such a chore!

What do your guests say?2022-05-14T08:44:51+00:00

“Everything we needed – and more!”

“Opening cupboards and drawers we would always find exactly what we needed for us and our (17-month-old) daughter.”

“Kitchen exceptionally well outfitted – garden with table a plus.”

Any goodies to welcome us?2022-05-11T21:40:27+00:00

Yes, the fridge comes with some fresh milk and there’s complimentary coffee and biscuits. Teabags are in the cupboard. Make yourself a cuppa while you plan what to do first.


“This house was perfect. The attention to detail was second to none: the beds were so comfortable, the décor perfect, equipment extensive, sunny courtyard, lovely view of St Denys Church.”  

Mrs M, Ipswich

“Charming, beautifully furnished and fully equipped townhouse within walking distance to everything you could possibly want to do or see in York”.
