Locally known as the Duck Pond, this conservation area of the City around Gilesgate has the enviable reputation of enjoying all that the City has to offer within easy reach. The house is tucked away from the main Gilesgate Road with the old part of St Giles Churchyard directly behind. It is only some 10 minutes walk by road, or via the picturesque riverside pathway, to the Market Place, City centre shops and many of the University and College buildings. In the other direction, the nearby Dragonville area offers extensive shopping, schooling, health and leisure facilities. The A690 gives quick access onto the A1(M) and A19.
