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.

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.

PERFECT FAMILY HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We had yet another wonderful stay in this well equipped holiday home. Truely is a home from home and perfect for a family. Close to all attractions, within easy walking distance of York city centre. House was very clean on arrival with added touch of a bottle of wine, milk, tea and coffee. Would highly recommend!

COMFORTABLE HOUSE IN AN IDEAL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great short break staying in this cosy house. It was clean, tidy, well equipped and an ideal size for us. The location was spot on- close to the train station and only a very short walk to the fabulous National Railway Museum. The train DVDs were an added bonus for the kids to watch. The owner was very helpful with the arrangements and gave us brilliant directions for reaching our destinations on foot. Highly recommended!
