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 home is a former Victorian corner shop looking directly onto the ‘moat’ - a grassy bank beside the walls.
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.
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.

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.
