Beautifully furnished and clean property. Lovely patio area and garden - a real sun trap. A very peaceful tranquil scene. As for location; York only a few miles away and park and ride a bonus. Castle Howard also very close by and well worth an amble round. An excellent base in an superb location.
Mr Williams

We would recommend The Barn Ivy Cottage to everyone, in a beautiful location.
Mrs Mcbay

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 decor. 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.
