Welcome to Fairfax Corner Eco-Holiday Home

Fairfax Corner Eco-Home York UK

Fairfax Corner Eco-holiday home is a spacious and comfortable Victorian end-terrace house located on Fairfax Street.

Fairfax Street is a prime location in York city centre.  It is very central but surprisingly quiet as it has no through-traffic and the walls provide shelter. 

Fairfax Corner Eco-holiday homis a former Victorian corner shop looking directly onto the ‘moat’ - a grassy bank beside the walls.

The house is 2 minutes walk from Micklegate with its bookshops and restaurants. There is a very useful parade of shops in Bishopthorpe Road, 2 minutes away, and several of York’s cosiest traditional pubs are nearby an elevated residential enclave within the famous York city walls and about 7-15 minutes walk from York rail station, Minster, theatres, cinema, Clifford’s Tower and other attractions.

Fairfax Corner retains its large windows and door in the corner shop room. It has a light and airy feel due to its high ceilings, large windows and open views of the walls. 

The leafy south-facing yard is sunny and private, with garden furniture and barbecue. 

Downstairs is an entrance hall, two large reception rooms both with sitting and dining capacity, and well-equipped kitchen. 

Upstairs there's a landing and 3 bedrooms - 2 double and one twin and an additional 'put-U-up’ bed. One bedroom is entered through the twin bedroom. There’s plenty of hanging and storage space. 

The bathroom has corner bath, basin and toilet and there is a separate shower room with toilet and handbasin. In the basement is a well-lit, heated and ventilated space with mirrors, wooden floor and a table-tennis table. Lots of books and some music.

Come and visit York!

York is one of Britain’s three Heritage Cities, along with Bath and Edinburgh. 

It’s set in the
York Minster Wall
heart of Yorkshire with a huge variety of places to go, but York itself deserves your time: it’s one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world. From the Roman invasion of Britain until the industrial revolution, York was the most important city in the north of England. Its Minster is the largest cathedral in Europe north of the Alps. The huge stone city walls enclose narrow cobbled streets and a wealth of historical sites as well as a wide variety of shops, pubs, museums, cafes and restaurants.

York is a place to walk. We never tire of walking around the city either on the walls, beside the river, or through the streets, pausing over views from the bridges. There are many ‘snickelways’ or alleyways to explore, and lots of hostelries and cafes nestled in corners. Museums abound, including the National Railway Museum.
