Overview

About the property

Opposite Museum Gardens, wonderful view, walking distance to all attractions.

58 Marygate (white cottage on the left in the picture) is a 300 year old cottage that has been recently completely renovated to a high standard, whilst retaining its original period features and charm.

It has a superb view from the front of the house over the entrance to the Museum Gardens and St Olaves Church.

Marygate is a fascinating, attractive street in a central York location, it is not too busy so is quiet at night. It's location makes it an ideal base to explore all of York's many attractions, all are within easy walking distance, Minster 5 mins walk, main shopping areas 5 minutes walk through the Museum Gardens.

It has been equipped and furnished to a high standard incorporating a hand made kitchen with granite worktops and Smeg and Neff appliances.

Bathrooms feature travertine tiles, duravit sanitaryware and hansgrohe rain showers, the main bathroom also has a freestanding bath.

The lounge has a period Georgian fireplace with solid oak flooring, comfy sofas and 2 old leather arm chairs, there is a 40" Flat screen TV with a Netflix subscription.

Bedrooms include quality beds and soft, top quality cotton bedding. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en suite bathroom with a great view at the front of the house. Also at the front of the house is bedroom 2 with a kingsize bed again with a great view over the front. At the back of the house is the dormer bedroom with 2 single beds and a nice view down Marygate Lane. There are flat screen TV's in all the 3 upstairs bedrooms. Downstairs is the fourth bedroom with bunk beds suitable for adults or kids. Outside is a small courtyard area with patio furniture. There is also a fast WIFI connection.

There is the excellent Star Inn The City restaurant in the Museum Gardens opposite the house 2 minutes walk away. The rest of Yorks' restaurants are just through the Museum Gardens 5-10 minutes walk. There are two pubs on Marygate itself and a Sainsburys local at the top of Marygate 3 minutes walk away. The River Ouse is at the bottom of Marygate 1 minute walk away.

Regrettably we cannot accept bookings from stag or hen weekends as the property is in a quiet residential neighbourhood.

Fortunately, we are unaffected by flooding as we are on an incline up the street.

About Louise Warman

I live in York with my husband and 3 girls. We love living in this vibrant, historic city.

Louise Warman purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Louise Warman chose York

We love Marygate and got married opposite this house in the Museum Gardens in the Hospitium. We fell in love with its quirky interior and friendly charm

What makes this cottage unique

It is rare to find a period cottage in central York so we were lucky to get it. It is on a great street because we are central yet away from the hustle and bustle

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can not rate this cottage highly enough. It is perfect in every way. Beautiful, stylish decor. Gorgeous comfy beds and quality linen and towels. Rented this cottage for one week for my adult children, who all live in New Zealand, who had all flown home for my daughters wedding at the Hospitium. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect location. Myself and the bridesmaids could walk through the museum gardens to the venue. Louise had left Prosecco, beers and homemade cake for our arrival. Delicious! Thank you Louise. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your cottage to all. Five star accommodation.

Beautiful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We were 8 adults stayed in Marygate for a week while attending a family wedding. The house is beautiful, very clean and well appointed. The things we appreciated most were the perfect location, beautiful linen and a wonderful attentive host, who went out of her way to assist us. The only negative is expensive parking albeit handy. Thank you so much Louise we certainly recommend Marygate to anyone looking for 5 star accommodation in York.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. I was thrilled that 58 Marygate was a tiny part of your extra special celebrations. I agree parking can be expensive in York. I've since discovered free parking near the river! I hope you return one day.

Great stay and house in York

  • 5 of 5

Our family (my wife, 19 y/o daughter and 16 y/o son) stayed in this home in July 2017. The house is lovely and has ample space, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The location is extremely convenient to medieval York and all of the sights therein. I don't think any spot was more than a 15 minute walk away. The home itself is well appointed and very comfortable, and is very well updated. As an older house, there are some low ceilings and doorways, and I did have a few collisions at 6'2". However, I thought it was a small price to pay for such a nice and historic accommodation in the center of York.
