Who are we?
“York City Breaks” is the brainchild of Jacky Hilary and Richard Light. We bought a flat in York some years ago, as a holiday home/alternative work base for ourselves and our family. Richard hails from Yorkshire, and we both love York, so this seemed like the right place to have a base in the north.
Encouraged by the warm reception from guests to Mallard, in late 2013, we decided to look for a second, smaller flat in York. We acquired “Foss Flat” in 2014. We equipped it and spent a few happy, exhausting days living there ourselves, to make sure that it had everything that would be needed for a relaxing break in York.
We have a wonderful, local support team. Simon – who lives near Foss – cleans and maintains both flats and welcomes guests. Peter – who lives near Mallard – looks after bigger maintenance work and acts as a back-up to Simon.
