Welcome to The Arthouse! A one of a kind, quirky gem of a property that’s well equipped for any length of stay in the city. The house has been lovingly brought up to a fantastic standard by the owner and will not disappoint.

Upon entering you will be immediately struck by the fantastic sense of style and high quality touches throughout. Hardwood floors lead into the open plan living/dining area complete with comfy sofa, large wall mounted TV and complimentary Netflix account for your enjoyment. The dining area seats 4 for dinner and showcases regularly changing artwork from local artists with optional purchase available. There’s also a record player complete with a good selection of vinyl to peruse.

The kitchen has a rustic feel with solid wood worktops and unique cupboards. There’s all the amenities you’d expect to find such as a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and washing machine. There’s also a Nespresso machine for a little bit of extra luxury.

Off the kitchen there’s even a fab room with a little cocktail bar! If cocktails aren’t your thing then it’s a great space to spend time catching up with a good book. The back garden of the property has been transformed into a fantastic landscaped outdoor seating space that really comes into its own in the warmer times of year.

Upstairs the stylish and tasteful décor are continued in the house bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The bathroom is quite sizeable and is complete with a bath with overhead shower. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom features a double.

Children permitted over 9 years old.

Permit parking for 1 car is provided.

The Arthouse represents everything I look for in a holiday rental. I’m pretty particular, but this beautiful character property ticked every box and had the magic formula of style and substance.

It’s always delight, a little bit like Christmas, when you arrive at a holiday property and find a hamper. In addition to that, the lovely host Sharon had also left juice, milk and fizz in the fridge. Where other properties leave you wondering whether you need to pack everything but the kitchen sink, The Arthouse has everything; tea, coffee (including coffee machine and cafetiere), salt, pepper, oil etc, plus a wealth of crockery, cutlery, knives and glassware. It was great to see the whole house stocked with environmentally friendly products, and everything you could need from hand soap to shower gel and so on – and plenty of loo roll. Also, the mothership, big fluffy bath towels that leave you wondering why 5-star hotels the world over only seem to leave you with something little more than a hanky to wrap yourself in. For those gloomy British weather days, there are board games, books and a wealth of streaming channels to keep you entertained.

The wonderful quirks of the property leave you wondering what ideas you can steal for your own home; a cool retro cocktail bar, record player, and multitudinous well selected vintage pieces and the work of local artists adorn the property.

Clean and fragrant, with a great garden, comfy beds, free parking, plenty of info about what’s going on locally and easy walking distance into the beautiful historic city of York, I don’t think any guest visiting The Arthouse could be left wanting. Thank you Sharon for an exceptional weekend.

What a treat!

Probably the best property we've stayed in in a very long time. The property is quirky with lots of personality and the hosts were amazing. Hoping to visit again soon! Thanks - chad & family.

Everything we needed was prepared for our stay. The location is perfect for exploring York’s History. The Walls, Museums and Gardens, The Art Gallery, beautiful old streets with unique shops and of course York Minster. The ArtHouse is a successful example of modernising a character property into a comfortable, relaxing and unique stay in the magnificent city of York.

Great property, quite location, walking distance from the city centre, railway station. Great finishing touches to the property and the host left a hamper and bottle of fizz - nice unexpected touch

A beautiful place - one of the best Airbnbs I've stayed in - with great facilities, it was super clean, and had the bonus of the lovely bar area and great art/design throughout.

This was simply one of the best AirBnB experiences we have ever had. The Arthouse is a beautifully designed and comfortable place to stay only minutes walk from all that York has to offer. So nice to see the superb art of the holyand other local artists on display. Everything about this house is exquisite. Even down to the record player and cool selection of albums to play! We hope to be back in warmer weather to enjoy the lovely garden. Many thanks.

We had a wonderful weekend staying at the Arthouse. The location was great and we could walk into the city centre in just 15 mins. Sharon, the owner was welcoming and generous and her home was beautiful. The house had all that we needed and was clean, warm and comfortable. Highly recommend
