Built in 2016, this one bedroom property has been constructed to a very high standard throughout. ‘The Smithy’ is located in the village of Fulford, a short 5 minute drive from the city centre. There is private off street parking just next to the property for your convenience.

The cottage itself has a fantastic open plan feel in the downstairs area. The spacious living area runs through into the high specification kitchen. The kitchen area features a range of high end appliances including washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher etc. A very nice feature of this property is the large skylight above the kitchen that allows a great deal of natural light in. Patio doors open on to the private outdoor area that’s perfect for summer evenings and a very rare feature for a one bedroom property. A staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom. The adjoining ensuite has been tastefully styled and features a good size walk in shower.

The Smithy was ideal accommodation. Lots of personal space, pleasant surroundings and a good location for the city centre. The hosts took time to ensure we had all we needed for our stay from towels, toiletries and milk in the fridge to the extra mile with gift bag of goodies and wine

Looking forward to staying here again!

Stayed at the Smithy for a week work trip and it couldn’t have been better. Felt like home away from home. The host went the extra thousand mile to welcome and make my stay that extra special. Highly recommended!

Location was ideal situated in a small courtyard with friendly neighbours. Entry from both front door and small rear courtyard. There is a good parking area and a bus stop within a hundred yards with a regular service to York centre. Good outside sitting area in small courtyard which receives the sun for most of the day in good weather. Property has been refurbished to a high standard. Ideal setup for two people with the kitchen area particularly well designed to allow light in at all times. Layout well thought out with sleeping area upstairs en-suite with a toilet downstairs. Furniture and fittings in great condition. Would stay there again.

Great place to stay for exploring York. Nice walk along the river into the centre, took us about 30 minutes. The smithy has everything you need, and feels like home away from home. The welcome package was a particularly lovely touch. Would definitely stay again if we return to York!

The Smithy was excellent everything you need in the property for a great holiday, I would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a quiet place to stay and relax. Having a bus service running in to York every few minutes is perfect no need to take your car.

A lovely modernised perfectly positioned property

The Smithy is located perfectly just on the fringe of York, bus stop right by and also a selection of decent pubs/ eateries within very easy walking distance. Property has been modernised to a very high standard and has everything you need plus more for a comfortable stay. Only one small observation was that there was a lot of spiderwebs, but we had just come out of lockdown, so guess that the place had been empty for a while. We wouldn't think twice about booking this again and would recommend it.

Great for cycling

Great holiday cottage

We had a great experience staying at the Smithy for a couple of weeks. It's surprisingly quiet for being just off of the main road, and there are several pubs and restaurants nearby for meals. The nearest grocery stores are a 10-15 min walk away, which is a bit inconvenient if you're planning on cooking, but it's easy enough to pop by on your way home as they're on the way from the city centre. For sightseeing, there is an easy bus route into York, or a lovely walk along the river if the weather's nice. The cottage itself was charming - extremely well renovated and modern, with lots of light, clean and cosy. It's the perfect size for a couple, and we thought it was great value. Stays York provide excellent customer service, responding to questions quickly and professionally, and giving us clear directions that made the check-in/out process very smooth. We will definitely book with them again!

The Smithy is the perfect property for a weekend stay in York.
Contemporary high end appliances in kitchen. Modern lounge . Simply gorgeous.
Upstairs a bright contemporary bedroom with double bed. Plenty of hangers and drawer space for clothes.
Contemporary bathroom with walk in shower again beautifully clean and bright .
Situated in a far corner of a court yard off a busy main rd. However you would never know the road was there.
Small paved patio to the rear of property with table and chairs which was a lovely bonus to have some outside space with the fab weather. Came with parking for one car . Buses are frequent so leave the car and get the bus . Lovely pubs and Fish & Chips shop all very close by.
When next visiting York will book again

“This was a lovely place to stay in a great location. Close to local shops, the outlet mall and only a 5 minute drive/Uber into town. The house is a stylish, and modern space with lots of brightness streaming in through the windows and sky lights. There was a lovely little welcome gift upon arrival and I found the place to be exactly what I thought it would be. Bar two issues in the kitchen, the place was very clean and well presented. I would stay here again and stay in other venues ‘Stay’s’ has to offer.”

The accommodation was excellent. Couple of issues need to be addressed. Better description of how to adjust the heating system. Better description as how to lock the front door. We needed to ask the neighbours for instructions

The location. 35 minute walk to the City Centre either along the main road or down by the river. If it is not flooded! Delightful. 3 pubs 2 of which serve food and an excellent fish and chip shop and a hotel that we can go to eat and drink in. All within a few hundred yards. Designer outlet shopping 20 minute walk or 5 mins by car or bus. You will need transport to return with some bargains. York possibly one of my favourite cities. Beautiful just to walk around with all its history. But also interesting shops. And museums enough for every interest. And pubs. The accommodation was terrific. A secluded private area to eat out in. Which may be best in summer. The Smithy is private off the main road in a mews. The facilities its decor cleanliness warmth comfort were all that we could have wanted or asked for. The neighbours were friendly We were invited to their party as they did not want us to be inconvenienced by it. We weren’t and we enjoyed ourselves. In short a great stay. Thanks.

My wife & I were delighted with this little town house. Light and spacious. High quality fittings & furnishings. Spotlessly clean. Complimentary toiletries & tea/coffee. The car space allowed us to leave the car parked at the house and use the frequent bus service to visit York. The managing agents were friendly and efficient in resolving some small issues which we countered while we were there. When our holiday came to an end, we didn't want to leave !

On the whole we would recommend The Smithy but on arrival the cooker wasn't very clean at all nor were the baking trays. There was a Microvave included in the spec. but there wasn't one in the property. When we contacted Stays York they contacted the owner and a microwave was delivered to outside the front door, even though we were in the property at the time. When we found it we realised why no one had rung the bell - the microwave had a foot missing and was filthy inside and out. Otherwise the property was lovely and we enjoyed our stay.

Stays York Replied:

Many thanks for the review. The lack of microwave in the property was an oversight on our part but was put right the same day. The microwave that was dropped to the apartment should certainly not have been in need of a clean though and we would certainly apologise for that. We're pleased to hear that otherwise you had an enjoyable stay and were very happy with the property. Just to confirm, the issue with microwave has been resolved for future guests.
