Set in the quiet residential area of Bootham, this charming 5 bedroom townhouse is just a short 10 minute walk from all that York has to offer. To the front of the property there is on street parking for 3 cars.

Walking into the property itself you will be immediately struck by the quality of the interior furnishings. The open plan dining and lounge area really is one of the highlights of this accommodation. The elegant decor and wood flooring combine to create a place you’ll just love spending time in. The lounge area features comfortable and stylish seating for 8 or 9 with the dining table seating 10 for dinner.

Going through into the kitchen the ‘wow’ factor continues with floor to ceiling fitted units to the right containing 4 single ovens. To the left there is an electric hob and all the appliances you’d expect to find in a top end kitchen. To the rear of the property there is a small decked area for sitting outside in warmer months.

The bedrooms are located across the upper 3 floors of the property. Each room features a double bed, drawer and wardrobe storage together with a shower ensuite. As a nice added touch there are also TV’s in each of the bedrooms for your enjoyment.

A comfortable stay in a fantastic location

Lovely modern downstairs accommodation. Loads of fridge and cooking space. Nice big table to seat everyone and plenty of sofas. Upstairs, as others have said, is perhaps slightly less stylish but the beds are comfy. The en suites are small but functional and it was a real bonus having 5 en suites for 7 girls staying over a weekend. The location is spot on. A pleasant walk through the Museum gardens/ along Bootham and you’re in the centre of town. Couldn’t be better. Parking is a bonus, although you can’t really say there are 3 spaces as the third is just a public road. There are 2, which were great to have. York is such a fantastic city with so many quirky bars and restaurants popping up (I recommend the tower room at Dyls for cocktails) and so much history and shopping. We had a brilliant time!

The downstairs of the property is excellent. Plenty of sofas, large dining area and lots of fridge and oven space. The bedrooms may lack the finesse of the downstairs area, but they’re plenty comfortable enough - decent beds and the bonus of 5 en suites is great for a large group. The en suites may be small and as other say, there are issues with ventilation, this didn’t affect our stay negatively. I didn’t find any issues with decoration as a result, they were all well maintained. There were some minor issues while we were there, but these were resolved to the best of the letting agents abilities. I raised any outstanding issues with them directly. The parking spaces were a real bonus, but be aware that there are 2 spaces rather than 3. There is a public road outside which it’s possible to park on only if space. It does get full. The location is fantastic. A short walk to the centre of town, it really couldn’t be better. York is amazing too. Lots of great quirky bars and restaurants popping up and of course the history and shopping.

Longfield House was perfect for a gathering of friends for a party in York (party was not at the house!). Comfy beds, good size dining table and reasonably equipped kitchen. 2 fridge-freezers and lots of empty kitchen cupboards was good. It is an easy walk to the train station over the new Scarborough bridge (15 mins). I would stay there again.

“The house was spacious and in a great location. The refreshments and Christmas decorations were a nice touch. Some of the rooms were a little chilly, but there were plenty of blankets/heaters on hand if needed. Good communication from Stays York. Would happily stay again.”

Me and my family had a great stay at Longfield House beautiful house in a great location for all you would want to see in York. The house was spotless kitchen is beautiful all the bedrooms were comfortable with en-suite in every bedroom. We were able to park 3 cars which was great. We did have a little problem as there were no tea towels and no oven gloves didn’t spoil anything just made cooking the Christmas dinner a little difficult. I would definitely stay here again as it is a lovely house in a brilliant location.

We booked this lovely property June 2018 for the weekend of 6th-9th December 2019, we looked forward to it for so long and boy we weren't disappointed, we traveled by train to York and unfortunately followed google maps to get to the house, the walk took us the long way round and 30 minutes ! when in actual fact the walk is a short 10 minutes through a car park and an underpass. On arrival the house was lovely and warm the heating was on and tea,coffee, milk sugar and biscuits had been left for us. We were all able to have our own bedrooms and all with en-suite bathrooms, some rooms were larger than others, thick fluffly towels were in all bathrooms.The kitchen is well equipped, with lots of seating available in both the dining area and sitting room. The location of the house is perfect, not a long walk to any of the sights, shops,Christmas markets and bars. The area is quiet in the evenings, but be aware anyone sleeping in the bedrooms at the front of the house there is some noise from early morning trains. Some other reviewers have mentioned the issue of some areas of damp but this does not detract from the overall impression. Following our return one of my sisters thought she had left medication in the house,a phone call to Staysyork who helped resolve the query very quickly. Would we book 7 Longfield Terrace again.....absolutely

“The location of the house wins for us - it is brilliant - just 5-10 mins walk to town max so it’s perfect and the street is really quiet which is great as the town can be super busy. It’s also a minute to the river for walks to the town or outwards for some fresh air! It has good parking which is hard to come by in York and a quick walk from the train station. The downstairs is perfect for a big group and it’s quite cosy once it warms up as the 1st evening, we were cold. Upstairs rooms do need updating but are still fine and functional. We loved York - lots of lovely places to mooch about and eat/drink.”

Well equipped comfortable house in easy walking distance of central York. 5 double bedrooms, all with small en-suite shower/WCS. Excellent modern kitchen with 4 ovens and 2 large fridge/freezers. Good standard of cleaning. Two issues, though: 3 car parking spaces are advertised. One is on the ( quiet)street outside and may not be available. The other two are in designated spaces on land opposite. These were both blocked on arrival by a neighbour and could not be used until the second day. They need to be closed by a chain to prevent unauthorised use. Two at least of the en suites have no ventilation or extraction fans. This results in significant condensation and the decorations are in poor condition in these rooms here, with peeling wallpaper and visible mould on the walls, although clearly there is an ongoing programme of redecoration. We would stay here again - the issues did not materially affect our stay, and the support from YorkStays (Annabel) was first class.

Surprisingly spacious , well equipped and convenient city centre house, sleeps 10 comfortably. Great support from management company. Plenty of dining space, all bedrooms have small en suite showers. Well presented and cleaned on arrival. 2 downsides: none of the shower rooms have any extraction or ventilation and suffer from dampness, mould and peeling decorations in some areas. The advertised 3 parking spaces are not guaranteed: one is on the street. The other designated spaces were occupied on arrival and should be secured with a chain or similar to prevent neighbours using them, clearly on a regular basis. It is not acceptable to claim spaces are for occupants sole use. That said , the house works well, has everything guests need, modern kitchen very well equipped with 4 ovens, 2 freezers, 2 large fridges etc - we would use it again but the parking arrangements need to be clarified. Everyone enjoyed their stay.

Good facilities for a family reunion. Clean and everyone had their own en-suite which for a party of 9 was perfect. Kitchen well equipped and having 2 fridges very helpful. Catered well for seating and dining for large party. Location very central with short walk into York so no need for cars or taxis.

Having organised accommodation for a family reunion was apprehensive property would be acceptable to nine cousins but on arrival very pleased with decision. Property clean and kitchen very well equipped two fridges great for supplies. All bedrooms have en suites which is such a bonus for a large party - privacy for everyone and no queues! Location perfect for walking into York and supermarket close by for food top up. We all really enjoyed our stay and would use again.

In need of a clean

We stayed here as a group of 10 but were sadly disappointed with the cleanliness of the bedrooms and particularly the bathrooms. All the shower heads were mouldy and the bins hadn't been emptied. It really needs a thorough deep clean upstairs as the dirt let the rest of the house down. The kitchen and living room were nice and tidy and the location was great - a short 10 minute walk to the centre. I would not return here because of how unclean the bathrooms are - showering each morning was not a pleasant experience when we had to clean the bathrooms ourselves!!

We stayed at Longfield House to celebrate a 40th birthday as we were attending the races, The house was perfect for our party size although the option to split the beds into twins would have been better. The house had everything we needed. The only down fall was that there were areas of the house that hadn't been cleaned. The top 2 bedrooms hadn't been hoovered properly and the shower head in one was very dirty and underneath the sofas in the living room hadn't been hoovered either. Outside the house, the front and the back had lots of cobwebs and needed to be swept. Despite this, we would use the property again as it was very convenient for walking into town and actually found a lovely route through the museum gardens.

Property very disappointing ...

First impressions were disappointing .. Very grubby outside with dead flowers trailing from hanging baskets and needing sweeping badly. First light in hall was not working .. As were several bulbs in living room area and upstairs. Stain on living room carpet and chair covers around table. Hinge off cupboard in kitchen. Cafetière broken and no instructions for kitchen appliances. Only one tea towel and scant kitchen supplies. Decking broken outside. The doctors surgery number given was discontinued when we tried to contact the surgery. Batteries for remotes upstairs had to be replaced by us and door handle in bedroom was loose. Paper hanging from ceiling in two bedrooms. Property obviously needs a lot more care and attention to make it look as good as it does online !!!!

A party of 8 people arriving Friday pm and leaving Sunday/ Monday am We had two sets of issues, one has to do with care and maintenance of the property, and the other with the absence of basic provisions. The key issue was the blocked kitchen drain. The smell was awful and percolated rooms in the house. Originally we assumed it was from a neighbouring property but as it worsened and the kitchen sink and other outflows became solidly blocked and unusable, We realised the problem was under the house. On Sunday am, we rang the emergency number and a plumber arrived within the hour. Apparently problems with the drains under the house had happened several times before. Secondly, we were surprised, given the price of the house, to find only 2 dishwasher tablets provided, a lack of dishwasher salt and sparkle liquid. There were no rubbish bags, no j cloths and only one dish towel. No pan cleaners or ice trays. We have stayed in similar properties in York and we were surprised at the lack of care and thoughtfulness given to families staying in the property. This is the first negative review we have ever given to a holiday house.

We stayed at Longfield house as part of a family weekend trip with 3 families and my mum. The downstairs is perfect for large family meals (when you're not enjoying the delights of York), with a lovely table that seats 10 and a kitchen that has 4 ovens!!! Parking is easy right across the road and the location in general is fantastic! Just a short stroll to the stunning museum gardens and then into York proper. Also just straight across the river to the Railway museum and station. A good find for large groups of visitors to York.
