Interaction with guests
We will happily chat away if your time and ours allows. Of course we have a lot to say about this beautiful area for walkers and visitors to York & Castle Howard if you would like any advice just ask. You might have to shut us up though. There is so much to see and do around York.
Other things to note
The apartment can become a two bedroomed detached holiday cottage if you need more space simply by adding the additional bedroom above it (charges apply, usually about £30-50 extra per night). This option can then sleep up to 6 persons. The "Brush & Boot" is the name of our B&B so if you would like to really treat yourself why not have a very full Yorkshire breakfast for an additional £15 per person per meal (needs to be requested in advance please). Our vegetarian option is just as delicious and fulsome too. There is a minimum stay of two nights & three on some weekends, bank holidays and during the school holidays. Pets are welcome and are charged at just £15 per pet stay.
We really appreciate our guests that treat the place with the respect you would show to someones home, which is what it is, so please try to leave the apartment as near as you can to how you find it.
Check in is between 4pm & 10pm but please do let us know your ETA so we are able to meet you on arrival. Outside of these times may be possible but we do need to know in advance if you need an early or late check in or out.
We love pets and they have the run of the living room but not the bedroom and wet room areas. If you have to leave Fido on its own in the apartment during your stay, please let us know as we may be able to dog sit for you and keep him/her company. If you could also bring their favourite blankets to put on the sofas please, if they can't resist the urge to join you on them.
Each pet stay is just £15 per stay payable on arrival in cash please.
I am I suppose by now an adopted "Yorkshireman" having lived in or near York now for nearly 25 years and I love living here and like nothing better than showing it off to our visitors and helping them to discover some of the beautiful & spectacular places, views, landscapes, historic buildings and ruins that we are lucky enough to have in abundance in this great county.
