We really hope you enjoyed your stay, please feel free to leave your review of 58 Marygate here: 



Despite the weather, wet, dark, cool, we had a lovely time here in York. Rap hi is now Rolo the Viking with his sword (age 5 3/4) Grace is now Freya the Viking Goddess with her flute and cats (Age 5 3/4, twins). Great cottage to explore beautiful York.

The miller family , 

So glad we were able to make it given the problems with COVID 19, but we did and your beautiful cottage was perfect for celebrating a 60th Birthday with all the family. I have no doubt we will come again and have already recommended to our friends!

Trish, Richard and family, 

We had a lovely time in York and enjoyed out stay in your lovely cottage. Beds very comfortable, kitchen well equipped and a lovely quiet location just a short walk from the centre of town. Thank you.

Adrian, Pauline, Ed and Fiona,

Richard, Lisa and family, 

Thank you for the great trip! We had a lovely time and the place was amazing. Brilliant location and very clean. Would definitely come again!

Louise, Jake and Party, 

This is a gorgeous cottage in such an amazing location. We had adventure filled days and this was a perfect house to come back to with fabulous decor and comfortable furniture. We especially loved the games cupboard and have a very memorable 3 hour high stakes monopoly game and the following night a game of cluedo! We loved the City, especially walking the historic walls and window shopping down the Shambles. We would love to come back here again!!!! Thanks for much for letting us stay.

The Warrens, 

We had an amazing stay at your house, thank you so much! Your house is placed in the best location and I loved how comfy the beds were. Thank you! P.s.we tried our best to keep it clean and tidy!

Ruby, age 13, 

Beautiful cottage in a perfect location with comfortable beds, gorgeous decor decor fabulous bath tub. First time adventure for me a single mum to 3 kids and it couldn’t have gone better! We’ve spent quality time together and explored York and further afield. Thank you for helping us make special memories.

Ellen and kids, 

Very comfortable stay in such a fantastic location. We loved the easy access to the park opposite. We felt very secure with all the COVID procedures and the house was super clean with really comfy beds. We’ve eaten out for the first time since lockdown eased and recommend Goji cafe and Double Dutch - amazing pancakes and extensive vegan menu. Further afield we have visited Fountains Abbey, Scarborough Castle, Castle Howardand would recommendall for social distancing and lots of outside space. Thank you very much!

The Hill family, 

We don’t know is we ere the first visitors into 58 Marygate after the easing of lockdown, but if we were it was a real privelage. We had a marvellous 3 nights here, felt very safe, and the location is fabulous. It was really good to see York coming back to life and we it can go from strength to strength. Thank you so much!

The Walton Clan, 

Thank you for a fabulous weekend in your lovely home. Great location and stunning decor. We want to live here!

Paula & co, 

Thank you so so much for letting us stay here!

Stella and my Viking family, 

We have had a wonderful stay,revisiting the City where my husband and I met. The cottage has been fantastic for enjoying the City and has been comfortable and welcoming for 3 generations. I can’t imagine a better place to stay while visiting York. We will be back! Many thanks Louise!

The Watsons, 

We have had a splendid stay in your charming cottage. Four couples from USA, Devon, Lancashire and Scotland, reuniting after 42 years! We were all living in Zambia, Africa in the late 1970’s and became great friends. We thoroughly enjoyed your clean and comfortable accommodation in a great location. Thank you for the welcome pack and for clear and responsive communication. From carol, Indiana USA.

Loved being in York. Such a great place, even in the sun and cold. Great walks along the river. We were very comfortable in your house. Thank you! Mary and Guy from Devon.

Reunion, 

Our visit to York to spend Christmas with our family who live here has been made so much more wonderful by staying in your beautifully appointed home. We were so happy to have the beautiful tree, and can’t thank you enough for helping to make all our requests possible. Cozy, excellent cottage with walking distance to everything - perfection! We will definitely re-book again and will refer friends and family in Maryland, USA to do the same. Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

The Kahan Family, 

My family have had a lovely stay in this charming house of yours. It is a cosy and lovely home to come back to, especially when it is wet and cold outside. We loved every bit of your house and of course the location is perfect to explore York on foot! Thank you also for responding so quickly to my queries. We hope to stay here again. Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! All the best for 2020!

Fadzilah, 

We had a wonderful Christmas time with all our family and soon to be in-laws. Thank you for the tree and decorations, it made it very homely. Your house is lovely. Merry Christmas.

Binner and Green families, 

This is a character cottage that has been renovated to a very high standard without losing its charm. The location is great - a short walk into town but still quiet. It was perfect for a family group and was a lovely base for our stay in York. We had a wonderful time and got lots of helpful tips before and during our stay from our host.

Judith, 

Had a lovely stay for a girls weekend! Well equipped and comfortable house. Thanks for the xmas touches.

Geraldine, 

Another wonderful stay at 58 Marygate and thank you for the warm welcome. The Christmas tree was a lovely touch and we had a fantastic stay. The beds in particular have been truly sumptuous with a great nights sleep had by all. Thank you again, were already looking forward to returning next year.

The Smith and Reay families, 

The cottage was in a fabulous location, only a few minutes walk to the centre of York, all our needs catered for, would definitely book again.

Amanda, 

Another great stay at 58 Marygate, thank you!

Sime, Harris and Ireland families, 

Delightful house, immaculate presentation, warm, comfortable, thoughtfully appointed and in a superb location. Nothing not to like. Thank you so much Louise!

Amy-Jane, 

Wow! My fiance (now husband), my family and I stayed here before, during and after our wedding at the Hospitium, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house is beautiful, spotless and cosy, and exactly what we needed. The location was simply incredible, we couldn't have been closer to our incredible venue. My walk to become a wife was a hop, skip and jump (and a charming meander through the gardens. Thank you for being an integral part of the success of our wedding day.

58 Marygate was the most perfect house to rent for my daughter's wedding at the Hospitium. Only a 4 minute walk away through the old gates, down a path in the Museum gardens and in to the front entrance. It could not have been in a better position. The house itself was spotlessly clean, equipped with everything you could possibly need, warm and beautifully decorated. It was an elegant backdrop to 'getting ready' photographs, both light and airy, and having no colours or patterns that could clash with bridal attire. (So much better than my own home). The host, Louise, was helpful and easy to communicate with. In short I can honestly recommend 58 Marygate to everyone.

Sally, Adam and family, 

Our tenth 'Morpeth Grammar School for girls' reunion and we have to admit that it has been one of the best. The cottage is delightful and in a marvelous, central location. The weather has been warm and sunny and we have done a lot of sightseeing and eating out. York has been a great place to be, with so many things to do and see. Thank you for everything... and the wine, fluffy towels and gorgeous linen!

friends from Northumberland, 

Stayed here with the family ages ranging from 18 months to 88 years. All of us loved the cottage even the wonky stairs and low ceilings . Has been beautifully renovated and furnished. It was lovely to come back to after our trips out. We didn’t use the car at all during our stay because everything is on your doorstep. Either ate out or bought from the Sainsbury Local not far away. Stroll through the gardens opposite and you’re in the centre. Stroll to the bottom of the road and you have the river. We did a lot of the touristy stuff but highlight definitely the National Railway Museum. Louise is extremely flexible and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending the cottage.

Roz, 

Thank you Louise, so much for a wonderful stay - your house is immaculate - everything one could need and really has made it feel home from home. A shame our friends couldn't enjoy it with us, but hopefully next year!!! Thank you for everything and your great care and attention throughout.

Amanda and Richard, 

We came to York to celebrate lour parents/grandparents Diamond Wedding anniversary and had the most fantastic stay in your beautiful cottage! Perfectly equipped with everything we needed and finished with a lovely attention to detail. Leaving with fabulous memories. Thank you so much.

The Hammonds, 

Wow! what a lovely house is the most perfect location. It is literally a minute to the city centre through the lovely museum gardens or along the river at the end of the road. The house is absolutely charming and beautifully decorated, it was an absolute joy. We all wished that we could have stayed longer. Don't stay anywhere else - this is where you should be when visiting York.

Susie, 

Thank you for everything! Your home is beautiful. We had the best time in York. You have done such a fantastic job.

The Brock Family, 

Stayed two nights for a wedding at the Hospitium in the Museum Gardens. Lovely, clean, ideally situated cottage in the centre of York. Would most definitely stay here again ... absolutely fabulous!

Julie, 

A fabulous few days in York. Beautiful and comfortable cottage. Perfect for our family. Fabulous cottage in the heart of York.

Jessalyn and Scotts Wedding, 

7 friends together for joint 50th year. We have never laughed so much, thank you for making our weekend special. Louise's house is absolutely beautiful, sparkling clean and within 10 min walk of town centre. The museum gardens are lovely and directly across the road from the house. Perfect weekend for 7 school friends celebrating our 50th birthdays. Loved it so much we will definitely be back!

We celebrated my 70th and want to thank you for this lovely home. We have loved being in York, my old home town! Blessings be upon your house and to you. Louise’s cottage in York is just wonderful - the location literally couldn’t be better, the bedrooms are all lovely and the spacious and well equipped living spaces make it perfect. We had a great time celebrating my mother’s 70th there and will definitely be back! A huge thank you to Louise, who is a super helpful host.

Jenny, 

A lovely stay in a perfect cottage. Welcome pack much appreciated, beautiful linen on beds, big fluffy towels and the cottage beautifully furnished and equipped. This is a fabulous cottage in the centre of York. The pictures do not do this cottage justice: comfy furnishing, amazing fully equipped kitchen, big, fluffy towels, crisp bed linen and a delightful welcome pack. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived. The house is very close to York city centre but quiet and peaceful. While booking Louise was prompt and helpful in replying to any queries. I have nothing negative to say about this cottage. If I was returning to York I would look T this cottage.

Maureen, 

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We loved the old world charm and the updated conveniences! We appreciate the welcome package in the kitchen as well as the comforts of robes, oversized towels and down bedding! We have loved York and will try to stay again in the future.

The Porels, 

'Sam's 30th' We have had an amazing time, your cottage is beautiful. The location is perfect! Thank for you for the restaurant recommendation. The Whippet Inn was gorgeous. We go away with loads more happy memories.

Great location, beautiful property decorated with thought and style, comfy beds, amazing bathroom, gorgeous kitchen with all mod cons. Super helpful hosts - Can’t wait to re-visit

Lesley, 

Many thanks to Louise and Tim for a wonderful week spent in this lovely cottage. It was the perfect home from home for my wife and I, as well as for both our parents for the run up to our wedding! Great location, Louise has been fab at keeping in touch/making sure we were okay during our stay. My wife and I now have some great photos featuring the cottage in our wedding snaps. We would definitely stay again!

Jenna and Elizabeth, 

Spent a lovely week with family and friends enjoying this welcoming cottage and making happy memories!

Sue + John, Liz +Sal, Tom + Sarah, 

We’ve had a wonderful stay! The cottage is immaculate and perfectly situated for visiting the magnificent City! The weather has been stunning and we even managed a picnic in the Museum Gardens. Thank you Louise.... perfect!

Jane, Mike, Sarah, James, Polly, Connery, Bella, Otto and Scout, 

Fabulously located to exploring all York has to offer, the house is warm and comfortable, with thoughtful extras provided by Louise. We would highly recommend this property!

Helen, 

The home is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and very close to town. The 3-year-old with us was VERY upset to arrive at home again rather than returning to 58 Marygate! We all understood why! It was a wonderful experience. Thanks to Louise!

William and Carol, 

We all enjoyed our week in this beautiful property which has been made comfortable and welcoming without losing its charm and character. It was lovely to open every door and find just what we'd hoped for and more including some tasty treats in the gift box. The location is perfect with the museum gardens across the road and then all of York.

Elizabeth, 

We had a wonderful time celebrating a family birthday at this fabulous house. The attention to detail is amazing including the welcome pack on arrival, the quality of the decor and furniture, the comfy beds and the fluffy towels. We will definitely be staying again and thank Louise for sharing her stunning house with us.

Natalie, 

We all had a wonderful time in York. The house was very well equipped. Clean and comfortable. It is so convenient to all the amenities in York. York is a great place to go for Christmas and we packed in a lot of activities in our week’s stay. We were a group of various ages, very young to quite old and the house worked for us all. Louise put up a lovely Christmas tree which was a nice touch and very much appreciated by all, especially the ten year old. We all would recommend the Warman’s house.

Elizabeth, 

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to York to celebrate our son’s 40th birthday. The house is in a great location and we didn’t miss having a car with us as everywhere was within easy walking distance. The house itself was super clean and comfortable. Special mention for the quality of the beds, pillows and bedding. Makes such a difference when you get a good nights sleep! Great communication with the owner Louise. Highly recommended.

Maureen, 

A lovely house that suited our family (2 grown-up-ishers and 4 children) for exploring York. A perfect location and a wonderfully kitted out house. Everything is beautifully done, and not a whiff of the usual ikea-filled kitchen cabinets...thank goodness! Thank you Louise.

Tom, 

Great house. Great location. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Would highly recommend to anybody wanting to visit the stunning city that is York. None of us wanted to leave.

Mark, 

Had a really lovely stay - loved the cottage. Thank you for the welcome pack, that was very much appreciated!

Gary, Steel, Vicky, Matt, 

Had a lovely week here. fabulous cottage and great position. We all had a comfortable stay and love York. Thank you for the welcome crate, enjoyed!

Anne, Neil, Margaret, Stuart, Dawn, Chris, Callum, 

50th Birthday, girls weekend in York. Beautiful house, comfortable stay and great city. Amazing company and lots of laughter.

Nicola, 

We had a wonderful stay at 58 Marygate. Very cozy and tastefully decorated. Spotless. All of us loved this home. Walking distance to Minster,pubs,restraunts and The train station. This home is a true gem. Thank you so much Louise for the goodies. We sure enjoyed them.

Colleen, 

Fabulous stay in York- the house was beautiful and the location perfect.

Nicola, 

Wonderful cottage with lots of atmosphere and soul in a beautiful city. Pictures of the cottage are nice but real life is better! We (5 adults) loved the house and would come again. Perfectly located just opposite the Museum Garden it's a quiet location and still in walking distance to all attractions of York. Louise was an attentive and great host and made our stay at the cottage very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the city wall and the magnificent York Minster!

Tine, 

Beautiful stylish house, spotlessly clean, well equipped (plenty of crockery, pots and pans) and in a fantastic location to walk into the city centre. We would definitely rent it again if we were visiting the area!

Neil, 

We had a wonderful time in this well located, cosy house. Thank you for the best. It was excellent! We really loved the house from first sight. It is beautifully refurbished and was a relaxing place for us. We hope we are allowed to come back.

Rostock, Germany, 

WOW !!!! Louise and Tim thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. My husband and I came back to York with my brother and sister for a trip down memory lane, it was amazing we toured York as tourist for 12 days, we visited all the places we grew up in, returning every night to the cottage were we felt right at home, you have put so much thought into providing everything your guests would need, we did not want for anything, the beds and bedding were very luxurious, We loved the fact you were across the street from Museum Gardens leading to the city center. and also across the street from St Olaves church were my husband and I were married 46 years ago. So many new memories were made, hope to return to cottage in the future with our grandkids.

Best wishes Sandra E. Sanger CA USA

Sandra Edwards, 

Thank you Louise for making our stay in York a happy one. We were celebrating a special Birthday so everything about the house made it special. Great location, lovely walking through the park and seeing the squirrels running around. Great location, would definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to come back.

Could not fault anything in this beautiful property.We celebrated a special birthday party and it felt very special in this lovely home.Have stayed in York before in self catering but the quality and special little touches such as welcome basket etc far exceeded otherproperties.Thanks Louise for making our stay a holiday to remember

The Brady Bunch, 

Thank you for opening up your lovely home, and allowing us to stay in it. We all felt very comfortable during our stay. We are here from the USA to revisit York, as we are all from here. We shared many memories and managed to see everything on our list. Being able to come back to your lovely cottage was a pleasure every evening. You have thought of many details to please your guests and take care of their needs. Again, thank you and best wishes

Lorraine, 

We loved this house. It was charming and had everything you could want. We knew the location was good based on other reviews but it was better than expected with easy access to everything via a beautiful park and yet was quiet and peaceful at night. Louise was quick to respond to questions and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

M & T, 

We cants thank you enough for sharing your beautiful cottage with our family. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door. My sister in law wanted to stay for forever - my brother in law not so much as he’s 6’5”!!! Your location directly across from the gardens and the gateway to central York was perfect. I haven’t walked so much in quite a long time. Thank you

The 3 generations, 

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a lovely time and really can’t wait to come back!

Jennifer and Lee, 

Thank you very much! Your cottage is so beautiful. We had a fantastic week! We felt very comfortable in this cosy atmosphere.

The Struckmeimeier’s, 

Comfortable house for our brief stay in York and accessible for all we wanted to see and do. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back at some time.

Anne and family, 

Thank you for putting the effort into all the little details that made this an excellent home from home. In fact, as others have said before, better than home! Our kids enjoyed the Museum Gardens and we went to the NRM every day. Looks like we will have to come back!
Very clean and beautifully decorated. The house is in an excellent location, and there is a good local information folder. It's walking distance to all the major attractions and it's great to have the museum gardens on your doorstep. With two toddlers we found the property safe, and there was a pushchair, cot, booster seat and baby cups cutlery etc. As is often the way with period properties, ceiling height is a bit low in some spots, but even at 6ft5 our tallest group member was comfortable. We parked in the public car park just behind the house and left our car there for the whole period (up to 12.50 a day)

Sally and party, 

We had a super weekend. We will definitely come back. Thank you!

Jenny and family, 

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We were here for our wedding and everything was perfect - a really beautiful setting for a week we will never forget!

The Howard family, 

Thank you we had a lovely week and I would highly recommend it to others.

Claire and family, 

Dear Louise, If it wasn't devalued estate-agentese I would say this cottage was deceptively spacious. The trick is due to the house expanding in a remarkable way at the back and on the first floor. 8 of us stayed for a weekend in January and we were much more than comfortable in this well appointed (more platitudes, but it is) cottage. Not only is it very close to car parking (rare in York) but we could saunter through the park for breakfast in the art gallery, nip over the bridge to the station or scurry back home from the Minster in just a few minutes. We've struggled to find *anything* to criticise, the worst we can think of is that the teapot is a bit too genteel to be genuinely Yorkshire - for a group of 8 at any rate!
It really is as good as it gets - charming, functional, totally attractive and everything working as it should. What a joy to walk about in ‘stocking feet’ in frosty weather enjoying underfloor heating in the kitchen! Nick

This has been a lovely place to stay for Diana’s special weekend - all the family together and a wonderful place the relax. Judith

The upstairs bathroom in particular is amazing! That bath is glorious! Thank you for letting us stay in such a wonderous location. Jill

Fantastic Louise - beautiful home, excellently appointed and everything we needed for a great weekend. You are a perfectionist - every detail is wonderful. Makes me want to live in York - the position is the best in the City!!! Many many thanks, Diana. P.s. Birthday was wonderful!!!

Nick, 

Beautifully presented house in the heart of York. Had a great stay and Louise is very responsive and helpful.

Stuart Lynch, 

What a beautiful home! An amazing location, beautifully furnished, great attention to detail, and finished to an incredibly high standard. The pictures are great but the reality is even better. If you want a comfortable, high quality house close to the center of historic York then this is the perfect place to stay! Thanks to Louise for a wonderful New Year stay!

David, 

We’ve enjoyed a cosy family Christmas here, in warmth and comfort. it was exciting to find a decorated tree here just waiting for our presents!
The bath tub is amazing as is the underfloor heating in the kitchen and the big oven made for a perfect Christmas dinner.

Joseph Earl, 

This property is extremely central so all the main tourist areas are within easy walking distance- crucial given the traffic problems in York! The house is very comfortable and well equipped, although I would not recommend it for those with any mobility issues as the stairs are quite steep and narrow and there are low doorways. The Christmas tree was a lovely touch!

Stella Bury, 

Superb location tastefully decorated extremely comfortable would highly recommend this property. Thank you for a most enjoyable stay in York. The house is perfectly situated and so very well appointed. Everyone in our party has had a wonderful time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year with best wishes

Paul Smith, 

We have had the most enjoyable and relaxing few days here. Your house is wonderful, a welcoming atmosphere in such an atmospheric house. We were all very very comfortable and had great nights sleep in really comfortable beds! York was just as lovely, a perfect way for us to get into the Christmas spirit.

The Bliss family and friends, 

Many thanks Louise for letting us stay in your lovely house. It was a very warm and comfortable place to return to after our daily Christmas shopping sprees. It has been beautifully decorated and tastefully finished. Also thank you for the little food and drink goodies. We would have no hesitation in coming again.

We found 58 Marygate to be a stylish, beautifully presented and perfectly situated property ideal for our short stay in York with family and friends. Loiuse proved to be a highly efficient & responsive host meeting all our needs. We would love to return soon.

Famous Five, 

This is a near-perfect AirBnB. We found the house spotless, and it's located in a great part of York. It's close to the center of town, but is on a quiet street, with an entrance right onto Museum Gardens close by. There's a nearby grocery store down the road, and a great pub even closer. As locals, we needed a larger place to host visiting family from outside of the country, and the house was absolutely what we needed. It was kid friendly, comfortable, and gorgeous. We will definitely stay again when family comes back around!

L Meghan, 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This home is so lovely and well appointed. We’ve stayed in 40+ Rentals around Europe and this was an absolute favourite! So cosy and elegant - we could stay ages! We hope to return soon!
Louise is a fantastic host and keeps a fantastic house. Great communication. Easy check-in and check-out. Clean. Spacious. The location is great for walking to anywhere within the York walls and surrounds. It's proximity to the train station also makes a visit to the area possible without a car. Highly recommend.

The Musick family from Virginiaand Tennessee, USA, 

Thank you Louise for everything. such a beautiful well kept cottage in a wonderful location. the kitchen really brings people together and our kids loved the bath. We really did not want to leave so hopefully we will be back soon!

Morrice and Holtzer family, 

Lovely place and close to centre of York. Had dinner at Mr P's Curious Tavern and Melton's which were both excellent!

James, 

The most amazing house in the best location!! Such a lovely house, so close to great facilities / site seeing activities. The house is really well equipped and beautifully decorated. We have really enjoyed celebrating David’s 30th Birthday here. Hopefully we will be back soon. thank you for all your help.

Elizabeth, 

The moment we walked into the cottage in Marygate we felt at home. It had a natural warmth and a welcoming atmosphere. The kitchen had all the equipment we might need and the welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We loved the comfortable lounge, the fluffy bathrobes, the rain showers and so so cosy beds. We are a family of 7 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The children especially loved being able to watch TV in their bedroom when they had woken up before us. This is one of the nicest holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. The location couldn't be better as the cottage is directly opposite the museum gardens and the Minster and all the museums are all within easy walking distance. The cheapest and most convenient long-term parking we found was in North Street, just a 10 minute walk away, through Yourparkingspace. Once we we had parked the car it stayed in the car park until we came home.

Fran, 

We loved our stay in this home from home cottage. everything was just right - comfortable beds, cosy kitchen, comfortable sitting room and fabulous showers. what a wonderful setting just by the Museum Gardens and the river! Jorvik Museum, The Castle Museum and the Railway Museum are just fantastic.

The Vincent and Ward families, 

A fantastic place to stay- so close to all the attractions and a beautifully equipped and designed home. Louise was very sweet and left us lots of good treats. She also accommodated our needs. We would definitely stay again!

Danielle, 

Yes, a wonderful weeks holiday. Thank you. I love all your design decisions on your home.

Dava, 

Another ‘amazing’ holiday in this beautiful cottage. Hectic time with 2 grandchildren aged 1 and 3. We have had a great family time and my daughter got ready for her wedding here. Hopefully we will have some lovely photos I can send to you. Thank you so much, we love it here.

Elaine Edwards, 

This 'home from home' setting was perfect for exploring York and the surrounding area. It was easy to find and when we arrived the welcome package of essentials as well as some delicious treats got everyone in the family off to a good start. It's a warm and cosy home which is clean and tidy with lots to help the whole family settle in quickly. We would recommend this home!

Janice, 

We all want to say a huge thank you for a wonderful week in this ‘home from home’ setting. We’ll take home lots of wonderful memories of a fabulous holiday in York. What made it all possible was the fact that every one of us felt at ease and comfortable. We were able to relax whilst enjoying all the home comforts - lovely bedrooms, great bathrooms, a cosy lounge and a fabulous kitchen! Thank you!

The Devon and Hardy families, 

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in this beautiful home. We have been very comfortable. Makes such a difference to have such quality items in a home stay. The location for us was perfect.

The Plunkett Family from News Zealand, 

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cosy, organised home. We are also very great full for both the hamper of delicious hamper and the file of food, attractions and others helpful points. York has been great fun and thank you so much once again. We could not have asked for a better stay : beautiful and accessible area, a park and so many attractions nearby and much more. Hopefully we have left your house in good condition.

Sau Ying Lim, 

This is a charming house in a quiet but central location. It is beautifully presented with many thoughtful touches (fluffy bathrobes, high quality bed linen, plenty of coat hangers, proper napkins, a gorgeous well appointed kitchen to die for) added to our comfort and ensured that we really relaxed in luxury.
Our son was performing in Britton’s opera ‘Albert Herring’ which was being put on by Aspect Opera in Rownstree Park - great fun and we were lucky with the weather. We also enjoyed walking the City walls, visiting the Minster, strolling through the ancient streets and marvelling at the elegant beauty of Fairfax House and its contents.
Two of the rooms are rather small (one with bunk beds and the other with a sloping ceiling) and outside space is somewhat limited, but we enjoyed our five night stay tremendously.

Diane, 

We came to stay for a few days with extended family for our daughters graduation from the University of York. Lovely cottage, very comfortable. Everything throughout couldn't of been any better! Delicious cake and prosecco welcome. Perfect location - quiet yet easy walk into town. Thank you

The Cawte Family, 

We loved everything about 58 Marygate. Louise was very kind to work with us in regards to getting into the house on our schedule and she was very responsive to emails. The house itself is beautiful - exactly as pictured. Very clean. It is on a quiet side street. The kitchen was fully equipped which was great. A grocery store is right up the street! Laundry and dishwasher were also very convenient. The kids (and adults) loved watching Netflix during down time. On our last night, there was an orchestral concert with mini-fireworks show in the adjacent park. We sat in one of the bedrooms and watched the show. It was very special. If we find ourselves back in York, we will definitely be staying here.

Sarah, 

We had a fantastic stay. What a beautiful cottage you have! Literally a home from home experience with lots of lovely little added extras. Thanks again

Miles, Bain and Walker families, 

Our family loved this beautiful, cozy and clean cottage. It is in the perfect location in York! Very walkable and close to all the great things York had to offer. Louise was friendly and very responsive! Highly recommend this cottage. Louise, Thank you again for a great stay in York.

Frances, 

We enjoyed a wondeful stay in 58 Marygate. The house is so attractive and comfortable. We walked everywhere and especially enjoyed strolling through the Museum Gardens! Thank you for a lovely stay. We are already planning a return trip to York!

The Brockingtons, 

Thank for allowing us to use your property which i know you have recently renovated with love and care. It has proved to be an extremely convenient base for us to enjoy our wedding nearby and our families were especially impressed with the careful design and results that you have achieved. Many thanks for the trouble you went to help us, and the warm welcome received. Kind Regards, Ashley and Samantha.

Ashley and Samantha, 

We have had such a lovely stay in York. The house is beautiful and in a perfect location. It is so clean and well equipped. Thank you for the lovely welcome basket too, a real treat. We would definitely stay again and will recommend to others. thanks

Claire Wojtkiw, 

I can not rate this cottage highly enough. It is perfect in every way. Beautiful, stylish decor. Gorgeous comfy beds and quality linen and towels. Rented this cottage for one week for my adult children, who all live in New Zealand, who had all flown home for my daughters wedding at the Hospitium. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect location. Myself and the bridesmaids could walk through the museum gardens to the venue. Louise had left Prosecco, beers and homemade cake for our arrival. Delicious! Thank you Louise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your cottage to all. Five star accommodation.

Caroline and family, 

Thank you very much! Had a great few days - lovely house with all you need. Excellent location. Hope to come back soon.

The Ellis family, 

Two teachers and five students stayed in this cottage for five days in April and we really enjoyed the stay. The cottage is marvelous and we can recommend it to families and others. The location is great, just a short walk through Museum Garden and you are in the city center. York is fantastic. We had a great time in York. We were quite excited about the cottage before we came, but it was as perfect as we thought. Luckily, the cottage has 2,5 bathroom, because we traveled with five teenagers. The kitchen is marvelous: a lot of equipment and space around the table for eating, as well as playing board games. The location was perfect for us and we really explored what York had to offer. Thanks for everything, Louise. We will definitely be back. Greetings from two teachers and five students from Norway.

Nina, 

Thank you for your lovely welcome. We have had a brilliant weekend - just not long enough. We can't wait to return in September to this beautiful cottage!

Elaine and family, 

We have had a lovely stay in you lovely cottage. It is very well equipped and is a high standard. The cottage is in an ideal location for exploring York. The 'Yorkshire' hamper was also a great little treat. We have all had a fantastic few days celebrating a big Birthday for one of our friends. We hope to return to this gem of a cottage one day. Thank you

Pam, Georgina, Helen, Julie, Susan (Birthday Girl) Anne, Alison and Janet, 

What a beautiful property! Great house for a bridal party - great to get ready in and brilliant for photos. Thanks so much!

Alexandra and her bridesmaids, 

Lovely cottage, great location just a little way from the centre. It's a lovely walk through the museum gardens to the city, and not far. We had someone on crutches and 2 in their late 70's with us and the walk was not too far. Louise communicated well with us both before and during our visit and was very helpful. I would highly recommend 58 Marygate. The website won't let me rate cleanliness, accuracy and check-in, but I would give these all 5 stars

Juliet Reid, 

HUGE THANKS for sharing your beautiful cottage with our family ove the New Years week!!! We were able to celebrate as a family while enjoying all York has to offer. From welcoming treats to all of your furnishings and conveiences - it was perfect! Your kitchen, living, bed and bath rooms were perfect and gave everyone space to enjoy being with each other!It was also perfectly located for our whole family to visit with our 'York' daughter, son-in-law, and baby, including the very special New Years Baptism. Thank you also for your patience with our questions - and the quick responses. It was much appreciated. If you are ever in San Francisco - don't hesitate to call or email.... Many, many thanks again!!!!

Sara, Chico, Megan, Glynis, Oliver and Mary... and Susanna, Mark and Bram Cooper, 

Thank you for making our stay in York so wonderful. The cottage is beautiful and we had a lovely stay. The location is perfect and it made our Christmas stay even more special. Thanks for the drinks and the lovely pies. All gone!!! We hope to return soon.

Abbey, 

A quick message to say thank you so much for our wonderful stay- the cottage was perfect. Beautiful furnishings and wonderful location. The mince pies and prosecco were also delightful! Many thanks and Merry Christmas

The Davies family, 

We had such a lovely time in York! The house was the perfect stay, the 'home of our dreams', just in front of the museum park (full of squirrels!) The prosecco and the chocolate went down very well! We enjoyed playing music here and we hope we can give you a concert next time, when we will come back!

The Goldfinch Ensemble, 

Just a quick note to say thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. It has been clean and comfortable, great location and very enjoyable, thanks! Just great. We had a lovely time. The house is great, very clean, top quality bed linen, towels, etc. Very close to the centre of town, easily within walking distance. Had a great welcome box with biscuits and wine. There was milk in the fridge and coffee, tea etc. A very comfortable stay and would stay again if we return to York. Thank you so much Louise!

Deborah and family, 

The house is very lovely. I really fell in love it with it at first sight. We had a great stay and good night sleep for a week. Thank you for the lovely welcome cake and notes from you. If we have a chance coming back York again, I would honestly say i will definitely choose your house. Thank you for the fabulous accomodation, very warm welcome,Louise Louise is great. The house is perfect to stay, everything is perfect! :)

Mingkamol from Thailand, 

Thank you for everything - from the organising to the fantastic welcoming treats! A perfect location and fantastic place to explore York from. This did not disappoint. Thanks for your place and we will fondly think of this cottage in York.

Wim and team from South Africa, 

On behalf of the contingency from Scotland we would like to thank you for your wonderful stay in York in your beautiful cottage. Everything was perfect. We will certainly recommend you to everyone back home.

The Morrisons and The Hamilitons, 

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely house. There was 8 of us celebrating my big 40! The house is lovely with everything in it that we would need. Very luxurious, thank you so much.

Joanne, Hector, Claire, Louise, Arlene, 

What a fabulous weekend we had. 7 ladies celebrating a certain "0" birthday. We were blessed with the weather too. Such a fabulous house, great towels and bed linens and comfy beds. Fantastic location. We hope to return one day. Thank you!

Maggie and friends, 

Thank you so much for providing a perfect house, cake, goodies, everything we could need! The house is so beautiful, perfectly positioned. It is so central but quiet. I would definitely recommend people staying here! We had a fab time and can't wait to come back!

Anna and family, 

Absolutely lovely house. It was the best stay my family and I have ever had. The little extras make all the difference. What a lovely feel it has! Thank you

Jose, Katie and family, 

We had a lovely stay at Marygate! 8 adults and 3 babies... The house is great and thank you so much for the cake and treats. We had a great time singing in the Minster with our choir.

Katie and friends, 

Very high quality rental property, beautifully fitted out complete with complimentary bubbles, snacks & home made cakes on arrival. It is in a great location, just across from the museum gardens and a short walk into the heart of York. If I had to find a criticism, the back yard is small and access is through the downstairs bunk bedroom, but this is as described in the details. The owner went out of her way to help us when we asked for a spare set of keys. It is a great base to explore the centre of York from and I would thoroughly recommend it. A wonderful weekend, beautiful cottage, fabulous welcome and good friends. Cheers!

Mandy Nicklin and friends, 

Excellente adresse, excellent accueil. La maison de Louise est très confortable et extrêmement bien équipée. On se sent tout de suite très bien dans cette maison. Une attention toute particulière vous est apportée avec des spécialités locales. Bravo Louise pour la décoration très soignée de votre maison! Vous êtes à 2 minutes à pied du centre de York.

We would like to thank you for your warm welcome and your nice house. You made everything easier to help our move back to France. We spent our last days in York after 3 years living in this beautiful City and we couldn't have found a better location! The children could go to school on foot whilst we waited for our house sale to complete. Thanks for the array of help with our baby and your flexibility. We will recommend 58 Marygate (and your cakes) to our family and friends! Thank you once again!

Juliette and family, 

Thank you for a lovely weekend. The cottage is just beautiful. The bag of goodies is a really lovely touch and the cottage is extremely comfortable. We will be recommending the cottage to family and friends!

The McCaitan family, 

Our stay at 58 Marygate made our family reunion in York complete. From the moment we entered this charming cottage, we felt relaxed and completely at home. The standard of refurbishment of this cottage is excellent and the attention to detail evident from the quality of bed linen, towels, beautiful bedrooms, tasteful calm decor, bathrooms, and the fabulous custom kitchen. It is also spotlessly clean which is a really, really important factor. Our goodie box with Prosecco, welcome card and beautiful cake made us feel very at home! The location could not be better. A few steps from the front door across the road and you enter Museum gardens where a short walk through this beautiful park leads you straight to the Gates. Two minutes to the right takes you to the river and again, a short walk along the river across Lendel Bridge into town. This cottage is absolutely charming and our only regret was that we couldn't have stayed longer. There isn't any parking with the cottage, and so the use of the rear public car park two minutes away could be costly at £12 per day over a long stay. This wouldn't in any way deter us from staying again, just maybe research alternative parking locations if staying more than a few days !

Susan Angeanta, 

Thank you for an amazing weekend. The cottage is beautiful and we all felt very at home. A wonderful house in a great location. We stayed at 58 Marygate for our annual weekend away which was also a friends 40th. Everything was perfect - absolutely no faults to be found and would love to go again. The house itself has a great layout and is decorated to a very high standard and is spotless. Louise was very easy to communicate with and any question we did have were answered promptly. Lovely, thoughtful touch with the arrival gifts. What a wonderful welcome! We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends. Thank you and we will be back soon!

Jo and party, 

This cottage was perfect for us! We were a group of 4 adults and 1 toddler (my husband, his mother, my mother, myself and my little guy). Everything was meticulous and so well thought out. Each bedroom had towels and dressing gowns provided. The kitchen had a wonderful welcome basket with goodies and there was milk in the fridge! We were able to have a nice cup of tea and start relaxing immediately! The kitchen also has basic kitchen needs like spices and oils as well as coffee, tea and sugar. I was also very impressed that she provides plastic ware which was perfect for my son to use. She also provides toys, which he loved playing with! The location of the cottage is incredible! We were across the street from the beautiful museum gardens, which was perfect for letting my 3 year old run and play. We were a very short walk to the river and pretty much everything else! We walked everywhere very easily! We even walked to the Sainsburys in about 5 minutes. We also walked to an Indian restaurant called The Raj which was excellent and so convenient! The beds were extremely comfortable and although there is a tiny bit of noise (in the front bedrooms) on the road as people walk or drive by, it is well worth it for the amazing location! I could go on and on about this wonderful cottage, but the best advice I can give is to book it for yourself and you'll be as impressed as we were! Thank you, Louise for everything!! I hope we get to stay again someday!

Juliet, 

Just to say the cottage is amazing. We had everything we needed. Also thank you very much for the basket of goodies. Top marks to you! Everything here is of the highest standard, well done! We most certainly will be back!

Gary, Donna and family, 

Our 3 generational family had a wonderful visit to York! Your lovely house was perfect. The location is so convenient to all the sights and the modern updates didn't take away from the 300 year old charm of the cottage. We were very comfortable and we hope to return some day. Thank you!

The Yarlettes and Adairs, 

Thanks for an amazing stay in your beautiful cottage. The prosecco and the delicious cake went down very well! It was a lovely, relaxing place to stay and we have really enjoyed our time making music in York! We hope to be back soon - what a lovely place!

Consone Quartet, 

Had a fabulous long weekend at 58 Marygate for my 40th birthday. The cottage really is beautiful- just like the pictures!- and the location ideal. We all had the best nights' sleep ever on the super comfortable beds, and the little touches like top of the range gadgets, super soft towels, home baking and milk in the fridge made all the difference. Can't wait to come back with the rest of the family.

Heather Fotheringham, 

The Edinburgh contingent has enjoyed their holiday in York very much indeed, celebrating Grandma's 80th Birthday. It has been good to walk into the City Centre and through the gardens to the Shambles, the Minster, the Great Escape and see the rowing on the river Ouse at the end of Marygate.
The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and so luxuriously appointed. Cooker is a dream! Beds are so comfortable and luxury dressing gowns everywhere! Everything that we hoped for.

Dorothy, Kathleen, Valerie, Caitlin, Catriona, Rachel and Dylan, 

Can agree totally with the previous comments. School reunion. 4 ladies (left school in 1972). We have had a blast in a beautiful cottage. York has cost us in shopping and entertainment but we return home invigorated, talked out, and with a new skill of belly dancing! Beds excellent - long sleepy nights. Kitchen envy in place! The whole thing has worked wonderfully. Thank you

Rosemary, Mary, Michelle and Fiona, 

Stayed here on a girl's weekend (celebrating a half century!) Terrible, terrible! Now we are all deeply dissatisfied with our own homes and need to go home and try to re-create the beauty and style of this gorgeous house! Just the surroundings have left us feeling pampered and the lovely friendly touches have made us feel so welcome. You have created a lovely and special space that has helped us to celebrate a special and memorable time. Thank you for the welcome... we'll be back and will enthusiastically recommend this to others.

Tanya, Ruth, Deborah, Emma, Wendy and Helen, 

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at 58 Marygate. The house, location, decor and the very personal small touches made our visit so very special. We had a fabulous time and thank you for your home. Marygate is am amazing cottage in the middle of York and walking distance to everything. Everything we needed for our stay was available as well as a very sweet welcome gift. The interior design is very well done and made use feel very comfortable. Louise was always contactable and available. I would highly recommend a stay here if you are ever in York.

Team Evans, 

Gorgeous cottage, all beautifully done. We all felt very comfortable and at home here. Louise was quick to respond to my emails and always friendly. Organised for the keys to be picked up and so we were able to access the property without difficulty. She answered any questions I had, although all instructions were clearly laid out in the house information. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. Recently decorated and tastefully furnished, it was a joy to stay there. The residential area is very quiet and yet you can be in the heart of the city in 5/10 minutes.
Thank you

Judy , 

Thank you so much for above and beyond! We all had an amazing time.

Elaine, Hannah and girls, 

What a wonderful cottage! We had a great time. Excellent location. Fantastic level of equipment.

Rob, Sophie, Josh & Elise, 

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in your beautiful house! We couldn't have wished for a better house or location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, would love to come back!

Emma Orton, 

58 Marygate is an amazing, perfect cottage in an unbeatable location in the heart of York. It has been sympathetically renovated to enhance its ample character and finished to a very high standard. Everything you need in a holiday cottage has been considered and provided, whether it be board games, Netflix and even dressing gowns. Every little detail has been thought of and Louise made us feel very welcome with the provision of prosecco, home made cake and chocolates on our arrival. You don't expect a holiday cottage to be of this quality. The finish to the cottage is to a very high standard with very tasteful decor. I can't recommend it highly enough for anyone considering a break in York!

Alex Forward, 

Had a wonderful time. Thank you very much for the Prosecco and the cake. The house has been beautifully refurbished with an excellent location. We had a fantastic stay and loved the small touches. We will definitely recommend your house to others.

Adam and Rachael Nayar,
