Lovely people, really clean property, lovely pillows and comfortable bed. Full English breakfast was probably the best I've ever had! The vine tomatoes and black pudding were gorgeous! If walking into the city of York, go past Aldi and turn left, takes you down to the River Ouse and a lovely tree lined walk of about 1 and half miles.... or take a bus just opposite The Limes.
