About Alistair Budd

My wife and I love York. We have visited many many times over the years. We love the whole atmosphere of a safe city with great nights out alongside the fabulous history and culture.

An opportunity to buy a property arose in 2016. We looked around at 9am and had an offer accepted by 9.15 am, we knew the house was perfect for our needs. and had no hesitations in purchasing, "Alba House". The style and finish of the house is excellent. But primarily the location is great. We can park the car and not use it again all week!!

Our children love the property and so do we. I am sure you will also.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean house and very nice decor/furnishings which had everything we needed and more. Fantastic location for walking into town which meant we didn't use the car all weekend. Had a lovely weekend break. Thank you very much Jo and Alistair. We will be back!! The Veitch Family

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, very spacious and clean. There was a christmas tree, which was a lovely touch and made the house feel really homely. Would certainly recommend as a place to stay. The beds were very comfortable, with lovely bedding and towels. Extremely well equipped.
