We stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. The annex is clean, adorable, and the amenities provided were really thoughtful (things like washer/dryer, an umbrella, snacks and milk in the fridge, guides to York). The little back patio was a beautiful and peaceful spot to relax after a day walking. Heslington Village is a 20-minute bus (or 10 minute uber) ride from the center of town. For our family, it was great to be a little out of town. The nearby pub was wonderful and we went there twice for dinner. Dave, the owner, was great about providing instructions and some travel advice for the area prior to our arrival. He left a birding book and some binoculars on the table for us, since my daughter is a bird enthusiast (and we used them on one of the walks that was recommended). The Annex is really close to the University of York and would be great for parents of students, or anyone seeking to stay a little outside of the busier city. We would stay here again!
