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.

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.

Quiet, clean, cosy, comfy,ideal situation

  • 5 out of 5
We parked the car on the private space on arrival and it didn't move until we left. 10 min walk to National Railway Museum. 20 mins to Minster and central attractions. We had been given a 3 day York Pass as a gift so set out to fit as many visits in as possible. We did it all on foot and no worries about parking. Recommend the Chocolate Story, Castle Museum Jorvic Centre and Minster. It's worth the challenge of the 275 steps to take in the views. Enjoyed an evening Ghost Walk, and the Studio Theatre to see a play about Nel Gwynn.
Lots of choices for takeaways in locality, and enjoyed a quiet drink in the Crystal Palace round the corner
Just about everything we could want in the house, including umbrellas in case of rain, and a torches for emergencies.
It was a very nice touch to find a bottle of wine in the fridge, and coffee, tea and biscuits to welcome us.
All mod cons provided, including wifi, and lots of DVDs etc for the railway enthusiast!

Great location, clean, cosy, comfortable and quiet

  • 5 out of 5
Parked the car on the private space on arrival, and it didn't move until we left. We had been given a 3 day York Pass as a gift, and using the house as a base walked to many attractions: The Chocolate Story, The Jorvic Centre, Castle Museum, Bailey House etc. Especially great location for station and Railway Museum, which was a great hit with
my partner. In the evenings we joined a Ghost Walk and saw a play about Nel Gwynn at the theatre. Enjoyed a quiet drink at the Crystal Palace round the corner.
It was nice to be welcomed with a bottle of wine in the fridge, and milk tea/coffee etc for a drink. Lots of little touches like a torch on the landing for emergencies, and several umbrellas for use in case of rain
Altogether very thoughtful and well planned. Wifi very handy.
I would recommend to friends, wanting parking and easy access to the sights of York.Splendid!

Excellent base for a stay in York

  • 5 out of 5
The house is exactly as described. Very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It is only 10 mins walk to the centre of York. I would definitely recommend it! There is something for everyone in York, my teenage son enjoyed York Dungeons and my dad met the Archbishop of York during his tour of York Minster.

There really something for everybody in York. We have been visiting York for many years and still find things we have not seen before.
