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 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.

Lovely and welcoming holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic short break at the Retreat and look forward to going again. The house was comfortable, clean and only a short walk to the busy city of York. The welcome tray, milk and wine were an added bonus and were a lovely addition after a long drive. I would recommend this property to friends and family, especially as the location is perfect for visits to the railway museum (only a 5-10 minute walk away) as well as the many other attractions York has to offer in the city centre. Overall we had a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate to contact Pete again to stay at his 'home from home'.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. I am pleased that you had a good break in York. As you say it is only a short walk to all that York has to offer : you can leave your car safely on the drive. Hope you will visit us again the next time you are in York. Pete.

a perfect place to stay in York

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in York April 1st 2015 from Canada. The house and the owner were both very warm and helpful. The house was very clean and close to everything . The owner calls it a Reteat and it is just that. A great place to stay .

Thanks so much for making our stay very enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. The house is indeed called "The Retreat" and is just that being situated in a quiet neighbourhood in a cul-de-sac.

Clean cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short break staying in this house in York. Pete the owner couldn't have been more helpful with communications in the run up to our trip. The house was well furnished and just about a comfortable walking distance from the city centre for small people. Being so close to the railway museum was a real bonus.

Mid week break

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house, close to the railway station and a short walk to the city centre. It is a very clean, comfortable and well maintained house. the kitchen diner is light and airy with a lovely view of the garden. There was a welcome tray which we made full use of whilst reading through the really interesting information folder provided. The house was really warm, and the beds were very comfortable. There were games and books to read once you came back from checking out the many attractions in York. We had a brilliant time and would recommend this house to everyone, I look forward to coming again in the summer.
