Ashley House is a beautiful property, believed to be an old 19th century toy shop, spanning four floors each oozing character and charm. Inspired by the house's  history we have made places to hide, play games, make and imagine or simply relax and snuggle up with a book.

We aim to offer our guests the experience they may be looking for now. A place that is safe and spotlessly clean, cosy and comforting and full of things to spend time staying at home together. During the lockdowns the house has been extensively rennovated and we are really proud of our house and  are looking forward once again to welcoming guests.

We have 5 bedrooms and can sleep up to 10 guests.

Our house is situated just south of the ancient walls of York in the famous Bishy Road area, with its fantastic range of cafes and independent shops.

For your extra reassurance at this time please see our Keeping You Safe page regarding the essential extra health and safety precautions that we are taking.

Following government guidelines we only accept  2 households or a maximum of 6 until the end of June.

We offer a minimum of 3 night stays.

During School holidays its a minimum of 7 nights arriving on a Friday.
