A fantastic place, the pictures don't do the property justice. It was superb all round.
Mr Piercewright

The location was perfect for exploring York and the surrounding area. The cottage itself was of an excellent standard and we had a great time here.
Miss Musson

The cottage was warm, clean and well equipped with an up to date d?cor. The owner was very friendly. The location is really good for getting into York and the coast is only about 30 minutes by car. I would very happily return for a longer stay in warmer weather, so that I could make use of the garden.
Miss Watson

This is undoubtedly one of the best holiday lets we have ever rented. It was spotlessly clean, warm and very welcoming, certainly a home from home. Although it is situated just off the main road there is no traffic noise whatsoever and is an ideal base for sightseeing. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anybody.
Mr Newman

The Barn Ivy Cottage was situated in a very convenient location. We always looked forward to returning each evening to the cottage. It was cozy and very comfortable.
