We visited the house with our 2-years-old son two weeks ago. It was an unforgettable short stay experience. My kid loved to run around the new cosy conservatory and the lovely floral garden. We lived in the beautiful Orchid room. It has traditional English touching and details. It also has everything you will need such as robes, slippers, iron, hair... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay again at Burswood, a gem of a location for the racing,and indeed York itself. The hosts Yide and Lena could not have been more friendly or helpful. The breakfast was superb and we will definitely be returning again. Thanks Billy and Avril Smith

We stayed with 4 friends of ours & all the rooms are beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean. Fresh milk & water in the fridge (in every room) selection of teas & coffee & biscuits.
