Pavilion Cottage is excellent for all year rental, being close to York City centre.and all its attractions. The well-equipped five bed property comfortably sleeps ten. We have cyclist and child friendly awards from Visit Britain and supply five cycles for our guests to use. Despite being within a mile from York City centre the cottage is set in a rural location, making it ideal also for walkers and dog owners seeking a relaxing holiday. There is a gas barbeque and plenty of garden furniture. All bedlinen and towels are included within the rental cost as is all fuel used. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric fan-oven, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave, a separate utility has a washer and we also have a tumble dryer.

Interaction with guests
Pavilion Cottage was formerly two cottages incorporating the Pavilion for a private cricket ground. We rent number 2 as a holiday let & live in number 1 ourselves. If we are home I will probably greet you and let you in to the cottage, if I'm not available I will have sent you a code for a key safe (located in the entrance porch) so you can let yourselves in & get settled. Either way you will find a welcome letter with your tea tray, usually including bread, milk, tea (Yorkshire of course) jam, butter & a homemade cake, this provides you with a bit of information about your stay and the wifi code. I am happy to research activities etc for your stay (as required) give you contact details for a hot tub hire company, taxis etc.

We had a brilliant time, the cottage is just perfect. Extremely well equipped and cupboards stocked with most kitchen essentials, we were greeted with a welcome pack of tea, freshly baked bread and lemon drizzle cake, flowers in all the rooms and everything just perfect....More
