Please note that this is a Family Home in a quiet area and not suitable for Stag or Hen Parties. Groups allowed by prior arrangement with the Owner. See 'More Details' for important Rates information.

Please contact the Owner for the Exact Rate for your stay. There is a difference between what Homeaway quote and the actual price because they base their figures on the cost for 1 week (which is correctly quoted). They do not take into account the fact that there has to be a full clean, linen/towel change etc for whatever period the stay is.

If you have young Children who may require a Waterproof Mattress Protector These can be fitted.

***A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE FOR STAYS OF ONE WEEK. SHORTER STAYS, A BOTTLE OF WINE.***

Guestbook comments from the owner

Pete's house in York is very comfortable and warm clean and well appointed with an enclosed rear garden. You can leave your car safely parked in front of the house while you go off and explore York crammed full of Roman & Viking History and all the styles of Architecture ever since. Restaurants and real ale pubs are everywhere. Plenty of night life. The York house is just the ticket if you are in the slightest bit interested in Railways ancient or modern as the upper floor overlooks the modern York Station and New Power Box with frequent visits by steam hauled specials, or a visit to The National Railway Museum if you are on foot just 15 mins walk from the house

A GREAT PLACE

The Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic week staying at the Retreat. The house is well equiped for a family - a home away from home. The house was clean and comfortable. It is within easy walking distance of the city centre and its many attractions. I would recommend this accommodation.

Great location

  • 4 out of 5
We arrived by train and just walked across following Peter's directions. House was clean & comfortable and soon warmed up, even on a cold evening. Everything was just as described and the location was so convenient for shopping, sightseeing and dining out. A great long weekend - we'd certainly recommend this place.

Everything you could want

  • 5 out of 5
The house is within easy walking distance of the station and the city walls and proved an ideal base for me to meet up with two old schoolfriends for the weekend. It is incredibly well equipped and much more welcoming than a modern apartment aimed at the tourist market, so we felt very cosy and relaxed there. The overriding impression is that the owner has gone the extra mile to make sure his guests have everything they could need at their disposal, even binoculars and umbrellas! Highly recommended.

I am glad that you had an enjoyable reunion with your old Schoolfriends and that the house came up to your expections. We do like to give the House that "homely feel" and this seems to work. We look forward to your next visit to the beautiful City of York. Pete

perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
This house is in a great location, if you are touring the UK then bring your car and leave it in the private space as you wont need it. The house is clean and well equipped (it even has a hairdryer). The bottle of wine was a very nice touch. The trains were not bothersome at all. Can't wait to come back and will definitely recommend.
