Guestbook comments from the owner

Easy walk to York Centre and everything that it has to offer. Multi-National atmosphere. Handy Restaurant "Lo Spuntino" is superb and the "Crystal Palace" Pub is great for chilling out.

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.

Bona casa per estar-hi

  • 5 out of 5
La casa està molt bé. És molt pràctic disposar d'una casa quan estàs de viatge, ja que pots rentar la roba i preparar-te el menjar. Tot i que cal caminar una mica, no està molt lluny del centre de York. Vam arribar-hi en tren. És una casa molt còmoda.

"Review # 9243707 "Good home to be there"

The house is fine. It's handy to have a home when you're traveling because you can wash clothes and prepare food. Although you have to walk a little, not very far from the centre of York. We got to York by train. The house is very comfortable".


Thank you for your kind review. I hope that you will stay agin when you visit the UK again.

Everything about this home was perfect. Pete, the owner answered promptly regarding any queries and Sue who looks after the property was very helpful.

The home is in a very nice quite area and is only a short walking distance into the centre of the City. On the main road (Holgate Road) you can pick up buses which go to a variety of places.

The house was very clean and comfortable and looked just as described. The kitchen was fitted with a fire extinguisher and first aid kit. Good quality cooking utensils and crockery - just everything we needed.

Plenty of towels and the bed linen smelt super lovely!!

This is a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it.

Great location

  • 4 out of 5
We had a very enjoyable stay in the beautiful city of York. The house is very comfortable and conveniently located to the city center. Excellent being able to walk everywhere and not need the car. After a busy day sightseeing it was nice to relax in the house during the evenings. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 out of 5
Description of the property is spot on. Everything you needed was there - including the bottle of wine nicely cooled! It was great to sit in the garden each evening enjoying food and drink. The house was very clean and well maintained. We were even able to get in a bit earlier and leave later, which was very welcome. We would stay again!

The back garden is a sun trap in the evening and is a very pleasant and peaceful area in which to unwind after a busy day in York.

I am glad that you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again.

Great Place!

  • 5 out of 5
Our rental experience here was excellent. Pete was very good at communicating with us and providing us with extra details for our visit (we traveled from the states for the Tour de France Grand Depart). The home was very clean & quiet and had everything we needed for our 3 day visit. Sue, who met us was wonderful - we took a wrong turn and got lost so she actually came to where we were and had us follow her back (very kind!). Walking into the city center was very manageable with our children ages 9 & 10. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone interested.
