Fairfax Corner

Fairfax Corner


Fairfax Corner is a light, spacious and very comfortable family house, extensively renovated to high environmental standards. Once a Victorian corner shop, it is in a quiet and sunny central spot.

All rooms have a view of the historic medieval walls of the city. We are ideally situated to explore York. There is a private leafy south-facing yard, with a shed for bike storage. We also have lots of books, music, art and there is table tennis in the cellar. We have solar panels to help heat water and other eco-friendly features. There is free parking for one car.

We have flexible booking arrangements, and to book you need to contact us directly via the web site, telephone or by letter.

    “Great house in lovely location ”

    This is a lovely house to stay in and has all the comforts of home. The beds were all comfy, lots of living space and we all enjoyed playing table tennis in the basement. Highly recommended and we would happily stay there again.

    Thank you Fiona, your comments really reassure us and encourage us to keep improving the house. Bill & Shan
